Nintendo is Skipping E3 2023

    Nintendo Direct still likely this summer.

    Nintendo officially confirmed that it will be skipping E3 2023 entirely. However, a summer edition of Nintendo Direct remains very likely despite the company’s decision to avoid E3 this year.

    “We approach our involvement in any event on a case-by-case basis and are always considering various ways to engage with our fans,” Nintendo said via VentureBeat. “Since this year’s E3 show didn’t fit into our plans, we have made the decision to not participate. However, we have been and continue to be a strong supporter of the ESA and E3.”

    Nintendo’s decision to skip E3 2023 comes just a month after an IGN report stating Microsoft, Nintendo, and PlayStation would not attend the annual showcase. Event organizer ReedPop is “committed to delivering the best show possible” despite the lack of commitment by these major publishers. 

    Nintendo is expected to reveal new games and updates for existing games at a Nintendo Direct this summer. Normally, these Nintendo Directs coincide with E3 events, but this may no longer be the case since the company is skipping E3 2023. Timing for the Nintendo Direct is ultimately up to Nintendo and its plans for 2023.

    E3 2023 runs from June 13 to 16 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California.
