Nintendo Confirms No Major E3 Event This Year, Reveals 1-2-Switch Shipment Numbers

Just like last year.


As part of Nintendo's latest earnings report, the company confirmed that it will not host a "large-scale" press conference at E3 this year. This is no big surprise, as Nintendo also didn't do one last year.

Nintendo will still be at E3, however. "Nintendo of America will present further information on our plans at a later date," Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima said.

If it's anything like last year, fans can expect a Nintendo Treehouse livestream event or some kind of other presentation featuring commentary and insight from developers and executives.

Also in Kimishima's prepared remarks, he revealed that 1-2-Switch is approaching 1 million copies shipped, while Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! has already passed more than 350,000 downloads. Super Bomberman R, meanwhile, has eclipses 500,000 copies shipped.
