Earlier this week, the Entertainment Software Association announced plans for this year’s E3 event – revealing that several major publishers, including Nintendo, would participate in this “all virtual” show.
Following the announcement, Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser shared his own post on Twitter about the return of the event – mentioning how great it was for the video game industry to pull itself together. He also hopes everyone can make the format as “fun and engaging” as possible.
His industry counterpart and Xbox director Phil Spencer also took the opportunity to recognize how “the industry is stronger” when working together and said he looks forward to reveal more about Xbox plans for the future (thanks, Xbox pure).
Oh, and if you’re wondering about Sony – as our friends at Push the square, he is (unsurprisingly) nowhere to be found, having moved away from the event in 2019 to host his own show.
Besides Nintendo and Xbox, other publishers attending this year’s all-digital E3 will include Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Bros. Games and Koch Media. E3 2021 will run from June 12 to June 15. Find out more in our previous article.
