Nintendo is strangely tight-lipped about its plans for E3 2021, and we wonder why

As you all know, E3 is the biggest annual event in the world of video games and this year it will be held from 12 to 15 June with a completely digital and free event. So next week we will start to get news of some of the most anticipated titles for gamers from the different companies, and we are sure to have more than one surprise in store. Several major companies have confirmed their attendance, such as Xbox, Ubisoft, Square Enix, Capcom, Bandai Namco, SEGA, etc. And of course Nintendo will also be present.

However, the latter company (which is the one we are obviously most interested in on the web), has been strangely silent about its plans. Although we know that it will be attending the event, we still have no dates, times or real details about its virtual appearance. On previous occasions at this point they had already shared important information (specific dates and times), but so far nothing at all.

This year, all we’ve had so far is a tweet from Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser in April, when he said the following:

The lack of news in this regard is undoubtedly worrying some fans, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t have interesting news from the big N at E3 2021, just that they seem to be opting for a different strategy: being more secretive. It’s worth remembering that it’s common for leaks to happen before events, and maybe that fact will make them more cautious this time around.

Be that as it may, there are highly anticipated titles on the table that we expect them to share new details about, such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3 and of course we’re sure to see ports of other multiplatform and indie titles for Nintendo Switch. On the other hand, there is also the rumoured new model of the hybrid console that, although it has not been confirmed, everything seems to indicate that it could be one of the big “bombshells” of this E3. Be that as it may, we’ll just have to be patient and wait to see what the event has in store for us.
