Nintendo announces E3 2018 plans, Smash Bros. Invitational

The closer we get to the second week of June, the more E3 2018 plans will be unveiled. Microsoft recently announced that they will be holding their Xbox E3 2018 Media Briefing at the Microsoft Theater across from the LA Convention Center, and now, Nintendo joins in to announce their plans for the week.

The Kyoto-based company isn’t deviating too much from the usual schedule this year, announcing a video presentation, where we’re likely to get news about the latest upcoming titles, as well as reveals of new ones; Splatoon 2 World Championship Tournaments; a Super Smash Bros. Invitational for 2018, played with the recently unveiled Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch; and Nintendo Treehouse: Live, which takes place throughout the three days of the convention and has world premiere gameplay throughout.
