This week, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) unveiled the first official information about E3 2021 which will be held in Los Angeles on June 12, 13, 14 and 15 in digital format. In this first press release, we learned that many publishers and manufacturers in the video game industry have responded to support E3 and participate in this new formula. Among them, Nintendo which is planning something different for this year.
A “fun” and “engaged” E3 for Nintendo
Like Phil Spencer, the Xbox boss who this week expressed his impatience to return to E3 and other summer events, Doug bowser, the boss of the American branch of Nintendo did the same. The latter reacts to the publication of the official E3 account on Twitter and announces a “fun” and “engaged” Nintendo event.
It’s going to be great to get the video game industry back together with our fans this June. We’ll make the virtual format fun and engaging. Looking forward to seeing you all in June! https://t.co/ZQidcWqAF4

It will be great to bring the video game industry together with our fans in June. We will offer a fun and engaged virtual format. Hope to see you all in June!
Used to pre-recorded shows with Nintendo Direct (which have existed since October 2011), it will be interesting to see if the manufacturer lends itself to the game of the event LIVE or not. Master in the art of innovation, we can not wait to find out what the firm is preparing for this major event.
An E3 in the colors of Zelda and the new Switch?
Nintendo will have plenty to keep fans happy at E3. In recent days, we have entered the year of 35 years of The Legend of Zelda. Last February, the manufacturer launched hostilities with the announcement of the Skyward Sword remake (which was not unanimous among fans). Nintendo promises that many surprises around Zelda are yet to be revealed! Two years ago, during E3 2019, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild 2 was announced. Would this be the time to rediscover it?
On the hardware side, more and more rumors are circulating around the Nintendo Switch Pro. There again, it might be time to formalize the console with a demonstration with a major game? Like, Link’s new adventures for example!
