While there is no big E3 show, that doesn’t mean we won’t see Nintendo having a presence at events. But nobody expected Nintendo to announce their own upcoming event. Initially debuting as a Japan event, Nintendo is bringing Nintendo Live to North America in 2023, where it can celebrate everything Nintendo with fans in a variety of ways.
Nintendo Live 2023 is announced for September in Seattle, Washington, and will include many activities for everyone to enjoy. The event will be in-person and include live stage performances, game tournaments, photo ops, and more.
From Nintendo Press Release:
At Nintendo Live 2023 in Seattle, attendees will experience a wide variety of Nintendo game-inspired activities across a large-scale themed area. People of all ages and gaming experience are encouraged to attend, since the experience is designed with both families and fans in mind. Whether you are a lifelong Nintendo enthusiast who knows your Like Likes from your Lakitus, or someone new to the world of Nintendo, everyone is invited to have fun.
In the same press release, Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser was quoted about the upcoming Nintendo event. “Fans of all ages can currently experience the unique games, characters, and worlds of Nintendo on Nintendo Switch, but we want to expand that scope with a new experience… With Nintendo Live 2023, we’re giving attendees a chance to celebrate together with family, friends and the broader Nintendo community in the spirit of fun and creating long-lasting memories.”
Specific details about Nintendo Live 2023, such as the day and time in September, were not yet revealed by Nintendo. They promised to announce more about it in the coming months. Other details such as new announcements related to new games or anything about Nintendo Switch were not discussed. It should be noted that the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is not far off, and there’s still time before Nintendo Live 2023 to have another Nintendo Direct presentation with any new game details. Some have also speculated the reveal of the next Nintendo console or Switch successor to pop up sometime soon, given many reports by outlets about production on Nintendo hardware since before last year.
It’s not outside the realm of possibility for Nintendo to have a big surprise for fans at their own event, but for now, all anyone can do is speculate. We’ll know more about Nintendo Live 2023 as we get closer to September.
