Nintendo details E3 2017 presentations; Super Mario Odyssey playable at show

Minecraft Nintendo Switch

Minecraft Nintendo Switch

While the game shows up in the eShop's "Coming Soon" section and you're able to add it to your Wish List, you can't buy the game and download it early. Nintendo says that "several" fan-made add-on packs will be included with the game, including the Super Mario Smash-Up pack, which gives the game a Mario-themed coat of paint and a number of Mario skins for their characters. Interestingly, the press release refers to it as "Mario's first sandbox-style game since Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine".

Nintendo has announced over on its official E3 portal on its main site, which can be access by hitting up e3.nintendo.com, its plans for this year and what actions will manifest on June 13th all the way to June 15th.

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.

The show floor will be a flurry of activity though, with tournaments going on all week for Splatoon 2 and ARMS.

Man City thrash Palace to move into third place
It could have been 1-1 with the chances we carved out, so the recovery was good from a poor goal from our point of view. A scintillating Manchester City trounced Crystal Palace at the Etihad to move up to third in the Premier League.

Nintendo's E3 2017 will see them going for that tactic yet again. Back in November, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said that the company was only planning "a game or two" for the Switch, while expressing scepticism about the system's wider appeal. The livestream will include behind-the-scenes info and commentary from game developers and members of the Nintendo Treehouse.

The 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational splats will be held on June 13 and features Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch. That's in contrast to the Wii U launch, when then-CEO John Riccitiello took to Nintendo's stage at E3 2011 to announce a major partnership between the companies. The release of Minecraft for the Nintendo Switch is scheduled at 6pm PDT. There are still other multi-platform games like Minecraft: Story Mode that cost more money on Nintendo Switch than they do on other platforms.

The success of the Nintendo Switch has had a positive impact on the financial fortunes of Nvidia, which supplies the chipset for the hybrid console.

One of the most anticipated games for the Nintendo Switch console is Grey Box's RiME. It also began hosting Treehouse livestreams at E3.
