Following news that Sony will be skipping the even this year, Nintendo has confirmed that they will still be attending E3 alongside many other publishers.
The news comes via a Press Release from the Entertainment Software Association listing various companies that will participate in E3 2020. The list includes Nintendo, Xbox, Bethesda, and many more.
Several leading video game companies have already committed to participating in E3 2020, including Xbox, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Bethesda Softworks, SEGA, Capcom, Square Enix, Take-Two Interactive Software, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., and Warner Bros. Games, among others.
President of Nintendo America Doug Bowser also confirmed Nintendo’s presence at the event in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter:
We look forward to participating in E3 2020. It is one of many ideal venues for us this year to interact with people in a social and immersive environment. Every year, we base our approach to E3 on the content we have to share.
On a related note, Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley confirmed that he would be following in Sony’s footsteps and skipping out on E3 this year, notably for the first time in 25 years.
I have made the difficult decision to decline to produce E3 Coliseum. For the first time in 25 years, I will not be participating in E3.
