It's time for the E3 2021 Nintendo Direct. Stick with us for all of this year's E3 news in a condensed and easy-access format.

The E3 2021 Nintendo Direct will begin at 9AM PT on Tuesday, June 15. We have to say that – other than maybe Take-Two – E3 2021's Nintendo Direct is going to be the most hype event! A new console, perhaps? The Nintendo Switch Pro could be featured in this year's E3 presentation, which begs the question: what about new games? Well, we could be seeing Breath of the Wild 2, or perhaps a new Super Mario game (Mario Odyssey 2?). No matter what, it's going to be awesome, and you should stick to EarlyGame for all E3 2021 Nintendo Direct live updates...

Our live updates are below, but do you want to quickly catch up on all-things E3 2021? Well, here are a couple of articles to get you started:

Mario Party Superstars Release Date & Presentation

Mario Party Superstars looks awesome, and will have a ton of content for you party-lovers when it releases on October 29! They suggested that you pre-order the game, but as usual: wait until the reviews are out. It'll probably be fantastic, though!

New Metroid Finally Revealed: Metroid Dread!

Mario Golf: Super Rush is Launching Soon!

We got another presentation for the new Mario Golf game, releasing on June 25! It'll be fantastic, if you're into this kind of thing. To be honest, I'm not. If you are though: all the power to you! Woo-hoo! There will be free DLC in the future as well.

You can play the Original Zelda, Zelda 2, Links Awakening, and Vermin on this Legend of Zelda Game and Watch System - it will be available on November 12! This is kind of underwhelming for the 35th Anniversary, but could be pretty neat.
