Nintendo really, really wants you to know that a new Switch hardware iteration is not going to be revealed at E3 this year. We know the game is launching sometime in 2019, presumably during the holiday season. Considering that we just recently had a big Pokemon centered Nintendo Direct, this is one conference we have little insight on what they plan on showing! Nintendo announced that all of the characters would be released by February of next year.
Also don't forget the Nintendo Direct is followed by a Nintendo Treehouse stream with a further deep dive into some of the games and announcements.More news: Square Enix Is Releasing Final Fantasy 7 Remake Watches Worth $2500 Each
The Nintendo E3 Direct starts at 9am PT, 12pm ET, 5pm United Kingdom, and 6 pm CEST. And while we didn't get any more details about the game beyond a vague "2019" release window, the promise that a new entry was indeed in development was enough to sate Animal Crossing fans, who had been starved for any kind of updates on the status of the franchise.
Nintendo has been quiet about the exact content of this year's presentation, but have stated that the show will be taking "a look at Nintendo Switch titles for 2019".
But what about games set to be released in 2020 and beyond? But a Nintendo Direct from September 2018 revealed that Animal Crossing 2019 was on its way to Nintendo Switch.More news: Scott Brown is co-leader at the RBC Canadian Open
Two other DLC characters have been released for Super Smash Bros.
That wasn't the only announcement to come out of Nintendo's pre-E3 tournaments. One thing is for sure-with Animal Crossing coming this year, it won't be long until we get a look at the game. And will it incorporate any elements from Happy Home Designer, or even the series' mobile game, Pocket Camp?
It's also worth noting that Animal Crossing games have always featured a new style with each new instalment.More news: Kylie Jenner Throws The Handmaid's Tale-Themed Party
