“Announcing #NintendoLive 2023, an in-person event for fans of all ages that will take place in Seattle this September,” Nintendo tweeted. “Experience Switch gameplay, live stage performances, tournaments, photo ops, and more.”

In a press release delivering the news, Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser said the company wanted to expand the scope of its “unique games,” which is exactly what the company hopes Nintendo Live will do later this year.

“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,” Bowser said. “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.”


More details “will be revealed in the future,” though Nintendo didn’t specify exactly when that will be. However, this event would mark the company’s first E3-adjacent, in-person appearance since the convention’s 2019 showcase.

When reached for comment, a company spokesperson pointed Kotaku to the press release, clarifying that this is all Nintendo is saying at the moment.


With Nintendo’s biggest, most-anticipated game, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, dropping on May 12, it’ll be interesting to see what else the company has coming down the pipe for the Switch this year and beyond.
