Nintendo E3 2014 Digital Event

For the second year, Nintendo will not be hosting an on-stage press conference. The company will instead air a pre-recorded Nintendo Direct. Expect a major focus on software - new games for the Wii U and 3DS, as well as essential details of games set for release in 2014.

Super Smash Bros Invitational Tournament

Nintendo's invitational Smash Bros tournament, which will be broadcast live on Nintendo's Twitch channel. A selection of pro Smash Bros players will come together to fight each other on the upcoming Super Smash Bros for Wii U.

Mon - Friday: E3 Game Streams

Live From Nintendo Treehouse

Throughout the duration of E3, Nintendo will be streaming live video from the show floor with members of the Treehouse, Nintendo of America's product development division, giving extensive demos on each of the company's upcoming titles.

There will also be special guest appearances from developers who will provide in-depth game commentary, including an appearance by Shigeru Miyamoto on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 10th.

The full times this will be broadcast are as follows:

Tuesday, June 10, 11:35am - 4pm PT (7:35pm - midnight UK time)
Wednesday, June 11, 9:15am - 6pm PT (17:15pm - 2am UK time)
Thursday, June 12, 9:30am - 5:00pm PT (17:30am - 1am UK time)

Twitch Streaming Schedule

Game streaming service Twitch will have a packed four-day E3 schedule from Monday June 9 through to Thursday, June 12, during which several unannounced games will be shown from major developers.

The list boasts four unannounced games from Nintendo, two from Microsoft, two from SCEA, and others from Ubisoft, Bethesda, Deep Silver, Square Enix, EA and Tecmo Koei.

The unannounced Bethesda game on Monday is confirmed to be its free-to-play multiplayer title BattleCry, which was recently announced and previewed here on CVG. That considered, we suspect several other 'unannounced' listings could be for games that have been announced in the past few days.

The game from Warner Bros. is likely Mortal Kombat X, announced today, June 2. Crytek's game could be Homefront The Revolution, also announced today.

Microsoft confirmed Forza Horizon 2 today, which likely accounts for one of its unannounced games. And Metro Redux could be one of Deep Silver's titles.
