Nintendo's E3 2017 Streams Dated And Detailed
Nintendo has detailed its plans for E3 2017 and, as with last year, it includes a Nintendo Direct-like stream, treehouse events, and tournaments.

Immediately after the Nintendo Spotlight stream will be Treehouse: Live @ E3. During this "Treehouse members and developers" will appear to show off their titles and discuss development. This is where Nintendo delves deeper into games that have just been announced or are scheduled to be released soon.
On both June 13 and 14, there will be broadcasts of the Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational and the 2017 Arms Open Invitational. All of these events will be will be available to watch on Nintendo's Twitch and YouTube channels, as well as its website. Of course, GameSpot will also be at hand to bring you all the news, videos, and analysis from these events.

Since the launch of the new platform, there has been a small selection of first-party titles, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8. Splatoon 2, Arms, and Super Mario Odyssey are next major Switch releases, but Nintendo's plans beyond that are a mystery.
