Monday, June 11 will jumpstart the action as qualifying teams from the United States and Canada, Japan, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand will kick off the opening rounds of the Splatoon 2 World Championships from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm PT. The Splatoon 2 World Championship tournament finals will commence on Tuesday, June 12, setting out to prove which team has what it takes to claim the world champion title.
Tuesday, June 12 will mark the start of the first full day of E3, beginning with Nintendo’s video presentation at 9 am PT. This presentation will showcase Nintendo Switch titles coming in 2018, including the recently announced Super Smash Bros. title for Nintendo Switch!
Immediately after the presentation, Treehouse Live from E3 2018 will begin, starting with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. As it has in past years, Treehouse Live promises to bring three exciting days of gameplay demonstrations with Treehouse members and game developers to fans around the world.
Later that day, following the Splatoon 2 World Championship tournament finals, viewers can tune in for the Super Smash Bros. Invitational, featuring the next entry in the Super Smash Bros. series! In addition, fans at the event may also have an opportunity to play the new game on stage during the event if they show up dressed as their favorite Nintendo characters. Information about how to attend these events will be made available at a later date, but Nintendo has already announced that tickets for the Super Smash Bros. Invitational and the Splatoon 2 World Championship tournament will be issued on-site at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles.
Inside Nintendo’s booth, players will have the chance to go hands-on with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch, noteworthy third-party titles for Nintendo Switch, and more!
