Nintendo to skip E3 press conference again in 2017

E3 2017 plans to be announced at a later date.

Nintendo will not host a large-scale press conference during E3 2017, which runs from June 13 to 15, the company said during its financial results briefing for the fiscal year ended March 2017.

“The video game tradeshow E3 will be held in Los Angeles this June,” Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima said. “Again this year, we will not be hosting a large-scale press conference for institutional investors, analysts and the media. Nintendo of America will present further information on our plans at a later date.”

Nintendo will likely host a Digital Event again this year, as it has been doing for the past four years—since E3 2013.
