Given that we now know next to nothing about the new Animal Crossing game, we're hoping Nintendo devotes a portion of its E3 Direct to finally giving us a glimpse at the title. You can find more news and announcements from E3 on GameSpot's E3 2019 hub.
Nintendo's E3 Direct presentation airs at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM BST on June 11. The company kicked off the presentation by announcing the Hero from Dragon Quest XI is joining Smash Bros. You can find out when and how to watch Nintendo's E3 Direct here. With so many upcoming games to talk about, we're banking on a longer presentation at E3 2019.
Nintendo has been mostly quiet about what it plans to show off during its upcoming E3 2019 Direct, but we now know at least one thing that will definitely happen during the livestream. Be on the look out for Nintendo Switch games like: Pokemon Sword/Shield, Astral Chain and possibly a Metroid title. Nintendo has labelled a few games with a 2019 release date so it's likely that the show will reveal new information about those titles. They previously stated it in a financial Q&A, outright noting that there isn't going to be a new Switch unit at E3, despite the fact that they are "constantly working on new projects", and now it's front and center on Nintendo's latest E3 rundown blog post. But a Nintendo Direct from September 2018 revealed that Animal Crossing 2019 was on its way to Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo has already released two DLC characters for Super Smash Bros.
That wasn't the only announcement to come out of Nintendo's pre-E3 tournaments.
Additionally, with the success of Animal Crossing Pocket Camp for mobile devices and Happy Home Designer for 3DS, we can probably expect to see some of their best elements incorporated into Animal Crossing 2019's gameplay. In New Leaf, players could gather at a tropical island to take part in tours and minigames-will something similar be featured in Animal Crossing for Switch?
