Nintendo: No plans to announce new hardware at E3 2019

Nintendo always developing internally, president says.


Nintendo has no plans to announce new hardware at E3 2019, which runs from June 11 to 13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Nintendo president and CEO Shuntaro Furukawa said during the company’s financial results briefing today.

Furukawa added that he has nothing to announce on potential new hardware, but that Nintendo is always developing hardware internally.

Various reports have surfaced recently regarding Nintendo’s plans for future Switch models. Whatever the truth to those reports may be, it seems that we will not hear about it at E3 2019.
