What To Expect At E3 2019

What To Expect At E3 2019

And given the last two years, it isn't hard to imagine 2019's show following suit.

This year's Nintendo E3 Direct is going to be a pretty large one.

There's also the potential Battletoads reboot we'll see, as well as some rumoured third-party games. Here's what you can expect to see at E3 2019. Having banners and official artwork already plastered on the E3 convention center, plus revealing the games release date ahead of time, makes me wonder what they will show and reveal about the game beyond the standard mechanics we expect. And while it could have several big games, the expected focus of the show will be on the "Final Fantasy VII Remake" and Square's upcoming "Marvel's Avengers" game.

So, what can you expect from Microsoft's latest press conference?

Rafael Nadal beats Dominic Thiem to win record 12th French Open
Novak Djokovic was understandably frustrated after his 26 match win streak at the Grand Slam level ended on Saturday. Djokovic could have been lining up on the opposite half this afternoon had it not been for the brilliance of Thiem.


At E3 2018, Microsoft confirmed that it's working on the next generation Xbox consoles, so we'll hopefully hear more about those this year.

That means while Federation Internationale de Football Association 20 on Switch will benefit from updated rosters and kits, it will basically be the same game as Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 and will lack any new gameplay content, such as the aforementioned Volta mode. The likelihood of that happening seems high, given that Sony has already started to dish details about PlayStation 5 and Microsoft is teasing "something new" for E3 2019.

Like it does every year, Nintendo is opting to publish a special E3 Direct instead of holding a press conference. We'll probably see a Nintenndo Switch Lite later this summer, and a slightly more powerful Nintendo Switch Plus (or possibly a New Nintendo Switch, because Nintendo likes even more confusing names than Microsoft) for this holiday season or next year. The usual suspects of a new Halo and Gears of War will undoubtedly be showcased, and there are strong rumours of a Fable 4 debut. There should be some big games on display from a variety of publishers too, so E3 2019 will definitely be worth following.

Meanwhile, Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation will be a livestream, like it always is, that's held at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET on June 11. Luckily for you, we'll be covering E3 2019 right here at SlashGear, so keep it here throughout the weekend and the beginning of next week for all the big news you need to know.
