In just a couple of days, E3 2019 will officially kick off and people from all over the world will flock to Los Angeles and take part in gaming's biggest event. This year, Nintendo has previously revealed it would be focusing on 2019 games.  

Today, the company has gone a step further and revealed the exact games that will be playable on the show floor: Pokémon Sword and Shield, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (the upcoming remake, not the original), Luigi's Mansion 3, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Nintendo said there will be "other games on the show floor," and "details about additional upcoming titles for Nintendo Switch" during its now-traditional Direct video on June 11th. 

That means there's still a chance the new Animal Crossing -- which is tentatively scheduled for 2019 at the moment -- will make an appearance at the show. We could also see Astral Chain, a fantasy-action game from Bayonetta developer Platinum Games, and Super Mario Maker 2, which comes out just a couple of weeks after the show. Heck, maybe we'll get a release date for Mario Kart Tour, Nintendo's next smartphone game, too. 

Other Switch games we already knew to be attending E3 include Doom Eternal, FIFA 20, and Fortnite. We may well see more revealed during Nintendo's E3 Direct presentation, though the company's E3 plans span more than just that press conference

Meanwhile, Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation will be a livestream, like it always is, that's held at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET on June 11. You can watch it over at  Nintendo's official site

Nintendo's Treehouse: Live stream will take place right after the Direct and at 9 a.m. PT on the following Wednesday and Thursday, which is when we'll get to see even more gameplay for these exciting new titles if they don't show up in the Direct. 

Nintendo is celebrating E3 2019 with an eShop sale, which will start at 10 a.m. PT on June 11 and run through 11:59 p.m. PT on June 18. You'll be able to see the full list of discounted games here when it goes live. 

E3 2019's show floor is open June 11-13. Like the two previous years, E3 2019 is selling tickets to the public.
