E3 has just passed, but Nintendo is surprised by its plans

It may not be exactly like it, but it’s only a few days away from the grand return of the game’s biggest annual event. Following a break last year, E3 will return next week and the celebration will officially begin on Saturday, June 12. The problem is that Nintendo has been silent about its plans.

We know that Nintendo will participate in this event-the Entertainment Software Association confirmed this in the 2021 E3 initial date announced in April-but we still don’t have any date, time or real details about its virtual appearance. This news will come soon, we are sure, but when we usually know Nintendo’s plans at this stage, it’s hard to ignore the current radio silence.

Take the last E3 in 2019 as an example.Nintendo confirmed that we will get Direct in April of that year and provided a specific date and time for the show May 9, And then followed up the details of the E3 Mario Maker event a week later, which were all carried out before the June exhibition.

This year, so far, all we have is a tweet from Nintendo US President Doug Bowser in April when he said: “We will make the virtual format interesting and engaging.”

At E3 2019, Nintendo's Shinya Takahashi mocked the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with a creepy and exciting trailer.

Don’t worry, we are not suggesting that you worry about anything, otherwise Nintendo will skip the event at the last minute. It is worth noting that this time the company seems to be adopting another strategy. Knowing our luck, Nintendo will release the news later today that makes us sound really stupid – if it does, You’re welcome!

Are you excited about E3, or would you say that everything is a little flat right now? Eleven days are still counting!
