5 June 2018 – by Jack Taylor

Nintendo has shared a reminder of the timings of its E3 2018 events, including a Nintendo Direct and tournaments for Super Smash Bros. and Splatoon.

Ahead of next week's E3 offerings, Nintendo has confirmed that its key presentation will be a Nintendo Direct, which will focus on Super Smash Bros. and other Nintendo Switch titles launching later this year.

This takes place on 12 June, and will be followed by a Nintendo Treehouse: Live, which in turn is to be followed by the Splatoon 2 World Championship finals and the Super Smash Bros. Invitational; Nintendo Treehouse: Live will also take place on 13 and 14 June, although the start times of these have yet to be confirmed.

Nintendo has also confirmed that Super Smash Bros., Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! will all be playable on the E3 show floor, and players will need to reserve a place to play Smash Bros, although Pokémon: Let's Go! will be available to play without a reservation.
