E3 2019: Nintendo predictions, rumors and expectations

Whether they show off those other games or not, there should be a lot to see at E3 this year from Nintendo.

Several core Xbox franchises are likely to form the pillars of a June 9 Media Briefing at E3 2019. The competitions will be live-streamed in English via Nintendo of Europe's E3 2019 website. But we'll start proceedings on the live blog an hour before.

Saturday - June 8th: The day will start with EA at 9:15 AM PT/ 12:15 PM ET.

Even before EA play begins, the publisher has had some news to share.

Then there are the rumoured games: maybe we'll see Fable 4, apparently in development over at Playground games (the same folks that are responsible for the Forza Horizon series).

Today, the company has gone a step further and revealed the exact games that will be playable on the show floor: Pokémon Sword and Shield, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (the upcoming remake, not the original), Luigi's Mansion 3, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Perhaps more details will be given about the streaming service Project xCloud and its next-generation hardware.

Do you think the Assistant Sonia craze is substantiated or will Misty always be the red-haired Pokemon gal for you? The update for " Pokemon Sword " and " Shield " came in a June 5 Nintendo Direct and can be seen on YouTube .


Bethesda is the maker of some of the most successful games like Doom, Fallout and the Elders Scrolls. If we listen to Todd Howard, the executive producer of Bethesda, he said that the company doesn't plan to show anything new for now. What PC games will be on the Xbox Game Pass when it crosses the rubicon?

The coming of summer means it's time for another E3, one of the largest video game trade shows in the world. If you are hoping to hear news about the Assassins' Creed, don't get your hopes up. Currently, the only game confirmed for the show is "Watch Dogs: Legion", which was leaked ahead of E3 thanks to Amazon.

Square Enix will bring Monday to a close with its second-ever E3 conference at 6 P.M. PST/9 P.M. EST. And given the last two years, it isn't hard to imagine 2019's show following suit.

E3 2019's show floor is open June 11-13.

When is the Nintendo E3 Direct? News on Halo Infinite has been coming in a drip feed, and we're honestly not expecting to see the game launch until at least 2020.

The best options are through Xbox's official Twitch, YouTube and Mixer channels. Adam has a passion for emerging technology and writing on his blog.
