Nintendo has finally revealed its E3 2021 plans. The company’s strategy this year is largely the same as in previous years, with a main Live presentation and a Treehouse stream featuring subsequent demos.
While this year’s E3 is different from previous installments thanks to going all-digital, Nintendo hasn’t changed much. The company has long abandoned physical presentations in favor of digital presentations, so it can do it at home with a change of format.
Nintendo will be showing off E3 on the show’s final day: Tuesday, June 15. It will air the Nintendo Direct at 9 a.m. Pacific Time on that day, which will run for 40 minutes. The company says that the video will mostly focus entirely on software, most of which is due out in 2021. That kills any hope that the rumored Switch Pro will be at this year’s show.
Nintendo at # E32021: June 15, 9 am PT!
Adjust for a #NintendoDirect with about 40 minutes of information focused only on #NintendoSwitch software, mainly released in 2021, followed by about 3 hours of gameplay in #NintendoTreehouseLive | E3 in 2021.

Next Live, Nintendo will broadcast a live Treehouse showcase with demos and dives into specific games. The presentation will run in about three hours after Live.
It’s a somewhat sparse show for Nintendo. The company is usually fully present at E3 with Treehouse streams throughout the show. This is a much shorter content plan by comparison.
Details about E3 2021 are still sparse as the digital expo is just over a week away. While Microsoft has confirmed the date for the conference, we still don’t have an idea of the full schedule, which is unusual for the event.
E3 2021 begins Saturday, June 12 and will run until Tuesday, June 15. Fans can sign up for the event, which will take place through digital apps.
