In not-so-surprising news, Nintendo will not hold a press conference during E3 2017 this June.
Nintendo has chosen to opt-out of the traditional E3 Press Conferences since the reveal of the Nintendo Wii U at E3 2012. Other companies, like Microsoft, Sony, and Bethesda still plan to host their press conferences on a yearly basis, but it is unclear for how long as companies like EA and Activision are standing aside and hosting separate events.
During a financial briefing, Nintendo stated: “Finally, the video game tradeshow E3 will be held in Los Angeles this June. Again this year, we will not be hosting a large-scale press conference for institutional investors, analysts and the media. Nintendo of America will present further information on our plans at a later date.”
It is possible that Nintendo will opt for their digital events, similar to what they did during E3 2017 last year. At the time of this writing, there is no news about what Nintendo is planning to unveil for this year’s show, besides the already confirmed Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch.

The New Nintendo 2DS XL was recently announced, scheduled to arrive on July 28th, 2017.
