Nintendo NY, the flagship Nintendo store of New York City, has released their E3 Experience schedule for E3 2018.
E3 spans from June 11 to June 15 this year, and there will be special events held at Nintendo NY each day, at different times. Kicking things off on June 11 will be the Splatoon 2 World Championship opening round, held from 6:30 PM-9 PM (all times listed in this article are EST).
On June 12, fans can begin lining up at 9 AM for an opportunity to watch a 12 PM Nintendo Direct followed by a live Nintendo Treehouse stream. Later that day, at 4 PM, there will be a stream of the Splatoon 2 World Championship Finals, and at 5 PM fans will get to play Super Smash Brothers and Mario Tennis Aces on the Switch. At six there will be a video stream of the Super Smash Brothers Invitational 2018.

On June 13, fans can begin lining up at 7 AM to have another go at Smash and Mario Tennis on the Switch at 9 AM. They will also be able to watch another live Nintendo Treehouse event stream. June 14 follows the same exact schedule, and June 15 has the same schedule for Smash and Mario Tennis gaming, but will not include any event streams.
As with any other Nintendo NY event, be prepared for a long wait if you plan on attending! Events like these are usually very well-attended and lines often form outside before “official” line-up times. Nintendo NY is located in Rockefeller Plaza, which is also a tourist-heavy area to begin with.
It seems likely that the store will be open for regular hours and operations in addition to the E3 events, though nothing has been confirmed at this time. For further updates on the events, check out the E3 Experience’s event page on Facebook, and Nintendo NY’s official Twitter.
