E3 2017 presentation begins at 9am PT/11am CT/12pm ET on June 13, 2017. While we won't be returning to the large scale press conferences of the past, the company has a number of big things to discuss in their usual Nintendo Direct format. Super Mario Odyssey could be critical to the company's financial performance in the fourth quarter, when it'll face stiff competition from other game developers for holiday season dominance.
Nintendo finally has revealed its plans for this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) next month.
When publisher Grey Box announced Australian pricing for their forthcoming puzzle adventure title Rime, Nintendo Switch owners couldn't help noticing that the game was significantly more expensive on their console than it was on any other.
"First off, the digital version of RIME on Nintendo Switch will now cost $29.99 / €34.99 / £29.99, the same price as the game on other platforms".
After the Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017, the Nintendo Treehouse: Live will begin.

Everyone has been accounted for and there is no initial indication of any worker exposure or an airborne radiological release. The tunnels are described as being hundreds of feet long and the collapse was spotted by workers doing routine surveillance.
In addition to all of these activities, Nintendo will also host game tournaments that will be livestreamed from the E3 show floor. Previously E3 was only a media and business event, making tournaments like this not really pertinent.
That's according to RBC Capital Markets analyst Mitch Steves who said this week Nvidia could make $300 million to $400 million in its fiscal year 2018 all because of the Switch game console. The game continues to find itself on almost all gaming platforms, and that continues with Nintendo's home console/portable hybrid. Whether new games will be announced, the company made no mention. Composed of four pre-qualified squid squads from Australia, Europe, Japan, New Zealand and the USA, the tournament will test who is the best squad and who will emerge victorious.
E3 2017 takes place June 13-15 in L.A.
This year, Splatoon 2 and ARMS are both getting tournaments, with Splatoon 2, in particular, basically an award for the four top teams in the world that pre-qualified through the World Inkling Invitational circuits, representing the US, Japan, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand.
