Nintendo is hosting an E3 event on June 15, and the company promises that it will be “exclusively focused on Nintendo Switch games that will be released mainly in 2021.” The Nintendo Direct presentation will begin at 9 a.m. PT / 12 ET ET June 15, and Nintendo will hold a three-hour dive into the game when the event ends.
Nintendo’s wording suggests that we will not see any hardware messages on the company’s E3 show. A “Switch Pro” has been rumored for several months, with recent reports suggesting that it may be announced before E3.
Bloomberg has previously reported that this new Switch model will use more powerful silicon from Nvidia that supports DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling). The updated switch is also said to support 4K output when connected to a TV and reportedly includes a seven-inch OLED screen.
If a new switch is imminent, Nintendo’s E3 show will be the perfect opportunity to show how games run in 4K and to demonstrate the power of Nvidia’s latest chip and DLSS support. As E3 launches in virtual form on June 12, there are only 10 days left to see if Nintendo is ready to announce an updated switch ahead of E3.
