    Nintendo confirms in a 2017 financial report that their E3 presence will once again be rather smaller. Keyword "again". Meaning that this E3 showing will likely be similar to the travesty that was last year's .

    This doesn't bode well for 3rd party support for the switch, nor for the many switch owners hoping for the promised "amazing" E3. I'll refrain from my anguished remarks, least on this first post.

    Source
    Go to page 19 if you want to see the announcement concerning E3. Other than that, this briefing makes for excellent information about what is to come for the future of Nintendo.

    EDIT: The report states that they will not hold a large-scale press conference. Perhaps there's a sliver of hope that a large number of games are revealed without the need of a large press conference.

    Is anyone surprised? Meanwhile, there are so many PS4 games coming out constantly that I have to plan out which ones to buy and when at the right price before physicals go out of print.

    It's soul-crushing. Have they not learned a single thing? I thought this would happen, and reading this to confirm my beliefs still leaves me with a huge feeling of disappointment. I really like the Switch too. I just hope this E3, no matter how small, shows us some new info for games we're not aware of yet, though my guess is it'll be probably 70% Mario Odyssey, 10% Arms, 10% Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and 10% random 3rd and 1st party ports.

    Reggie did promise us a big E3. Right now, according to official nintendo sources, that's looking like a lie. I'm quite devastated honestly.

    Small press conferences and their recent methods of handling E3 have not served them well, least in public opinion.

    It looks like they want to focus on 3DS as equally as the switch, if not more, and that sounds like a terrible idea. I thought it would be prudent of them to shift all their resources into making games and advertising for the switch, but they want to keep up the momentum the 3ds has apparently. The lineup of the 3ds for this year is quite nicer than what we have going for the switch as well.

    That report is a good read. Or a bad one if you're expecting a lot from Nintendo and their handling of their home console.

    Seems like pretty bias reporting. Just because they wouldn't be on stage, doesn't mean they wouldn't have a big presence.

    Definitely means it's bad. After announcing a huge E3 presence, they do a 180 and announce this?

    that doesnt necessarily imply a press conference. their e3 presence includes everything from them at e3, so the direct, the treehouse stream as well as their show floor space

    I'd say that OP is taking this out of context. Just because they won't be having a press event conference (this is just an announcement that they will forgo the large theater event) does not mean that they won't have a large show floor plan.

    I don't understand where OP gets that "not a large-scale press conference" means a small scale presence. They don't correlate.

    Right, failed promises.

    How on earth did you come to that conclusion?
    The statement quoted just reads that Nintendo will once again will not be holding a literal "large scale" presser, meaning physically large, i.e. a stage show with lights, sound, screens and actors.
    This statement is basically just confirming another E3 Nintendo direct and has nothing to do with the content of whatever they're planning.
    I'm doubtful it'll be anything particularly exciting either but jeez what a reach.

    I did say that it'd only mean that there'd be a smaller scale press conference and that could mean they'd still have stuff to reveal. I also stated that it doesn't bode well either as taking a similar approach to what they've done in the past did not work out very well for them aside for advertising one game. People seem to have forgotten that last year's treehouse also included Pokemon and think of it entirely as a BotW treehouse, which in all fairness it was.
