The ESA reconfirms Nintendo's presence at E3 2020

The Big N for the big show

A couple weeks back, Nintendo's Doug Bowser mentioned Nintendo's presence at E3 2020 during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

“We look forward to participating in E3 2020. It is one of many ideal venues for us this year to interact with people in a social and immersive environment. Every year, we base our approach to E3 on the content we have to share.”

Following that, the ESA has put out a press release today that reconfirms what Bowser had to say. Nintendo will indeed be a part of E3 2020, although specific plans have not yet been announced.

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) today announced that registration for E3 2020: EVERYONE PLAYS will open February 15 at 11:00 AM EST, exclusively at www.E3Expo.com. The show returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 9-11, with an industry day on June 9, followed by two days open to all badge holders.

E3, the world’s premier event for computer and video games and related products, has been reimagined to include new stage experiences, experiential zones, and live events to showcase new titles and innovations in video games and to celebrate video game culture.

E3 2020 will feature special guest gamers, celebrities, and digital programming on the show floor while connecting with global audiences through extended livestreaming. A highlight will be the debut of an all-new floor experience that will be streamed to bring exclusive conversations with leading industry innovators and creators to attendees and fans worldwide.

“We are working to make E3 2020 a more interactive and immersive experience with a show floor that will amplify our exhibitors, their innovations, and announcements,” said Stanley Pierre-Louis, President and CEO of the ESA. “The E3 experience is an industry showcase like no other. It connects media, brands, innovators, and super fans with one another.”

Several leading video game companies have already committed to participating in E3 2020, including Xbox, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Bethesda Softworks, SEGA, Capcom, Square Enix, Take-Two Interactive Software, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., and Warner Bros. Games, among others.

Maybe this year they won't lose everyone's data.

I know people keep saying E3's time is over, but I still like when it comes around each year. I'm sure most of us do.

I've been following E3 for almost 20 years, so I'd certainly miss it. A great thing about it is the when. We know exactly when to expect a lot of gaming news. It's not like Sony's unveil of the PS5 that no one has any idea when it's happening.

Yeah, it was called the "Christmas of gaming" at atime...But times have very obviously changed.

Well, the E3 of new consoles is usually a fun one. Lots of promise and excitement. The last time was not so great because the leap was not so great, so it makes sense.
And honestly, Sony not being there is not that big a deal for new announcements. They allow their own studios years and years to work on single player games, which is great, but they announce them too early and had 3 very similar E3s in a row, which was boring.

I agree that Sony announces some games way too early. Makes the waits much longer and annoying.

And I understand that Sony are focusing on the PS5 ow and would rather have their own show in case MS want to show off the Xwhatever around the same time as E3, or at E3. But sure hope we get to see a lot of great games this year =)

It's only good when they do the Best Buy events like at E3 2013, and not the "single game focus" nonsense of Breath of the Wild from E3 2016. Of course, that's not to insinuate that they have nothing for E3 2020, but they better not pull that shit again with the sequel. It turns out some people aren't ravenous fanboys and like variety in their software lineup...

Is it time? Is it finally time for MothEr3?!

One of the main losses of E3 over years is the increasing accurate spoilers. Even if there is still a lot of bogus, we know many of the rumors will be revealed to be true.

That Star Fox Racing game, was it just someone confusing the Starlink racing DLC, or it's there a story we'll never know?

Whatever Retro was working on between Tropical Freeze and Metroid Prime 4 is still a mystery, and it might always be.

If the racing DLC was announced at E3 that same year, I can see them mistaking it for it.

It had a name and a logo, so I doubt it was just a mix-up.
