Excitement for Nintendo Switch Pokemon Game Flares Up

Instead of hiring orchestras and comedians to pitch their games, Nintendo now go for a much smaller-scale and actually try to show off what they're making.

"Proceedings will be headlined by the first-ever opportunity to play the Super Mario Odyssey game, Mario's upcoming sandbox-style adventure for the Nintendo Switch system, as well as other Nintendo Switch games".

The focus this year will be on Super Mario Odyssey on June 13th, beginning at 9 a.m. PT (12 p.m. ET for the folks at home).

The iconic Japanese game company will host a three-day event at this year's E3, one of the gaming industry's biggest confabs, starting on June 13.

Rime is set to launch later this month for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, though the game is also set to be coming to Nintendo Switch later this year.

As usual, Nintendo won't be having a physical show at E3 Expo 2017 on June 13-15, but it will be having a presence on the show floor.
