Nintendo expands E3 stream plans, Zelda: Link’s Awakening will be playable

Along with Pokemon Sword & Shield, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Ultimate Alliance 3, ‘and more’

Before today, Nintendo just had one event confirmed in terms of E3 2019 streams: Tuesday at 12PM ET. Today they’re expanding things a bit with three more streams.

Once again a Treehouse Live segment will follow up the aforementioned Direct, which will, as in previous years, likely further detail the games revealed at E3 and deliver some smaller reveals of their own (typically smaller titles and things like amiibo figures or add-ons are perfect Treehouse material).

Following that, Treehouse Live will return on Wednesday June 12 at 12PM ET for another stream. Then on Thursday June 13, there’s yet another Treehouse Live segment, this time focusing on “Indie Day.” On the showfloor, Pokemon Sword & Shield are confirmed to be playable, as well as Luigi’s Mansion 3, Zelda: Link’s Awakening (Switch), Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, “and more.”

Again, if you haven’t watched a Treehouse stream before, it’s perfect background material. They typically chew through games in 30 minute increments, often times with developers on site explaining a live playthrough, confirm some tidbit of info at the end, then take a short break to start the process all over again.
