This is it. Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft and Sony all gave their E3 presentations yesterday and gave an excellent look at the games they plan to deliver over the next few years. Today is the turn of Nintendo. Once again Nintendo will be delivering their content in a special digital event, rather than an actual conference held in Los Angeles.
Here is where you’ll find all our coverage of the entire event, though expect a separate coverage post for any Pokémon-related news. We are a Pokémon site after all! In this post you’ll find a live stream, the PokéJungle Chat, our coverage and the comments section full of bustling conversation. Got a question? Ask it below! We want to hear all of your thoughts about E3 this year. What are you most excited for? Anything, put it below!
