The conference, which will last about 30 minutes, will be livestreaming from Nintendo's YouTube channel starting at 12 p.m. Eastern.

Nintendo E3 2017: What games will the company show?

Like any E3 show, there are a number of titles Nintendo will definitely highlight, but there's always the potential that it has something secret up its sleeve, too. In terms of known quantities, here are the games Nintendo is likely to show:

Super Mario Odyssey

EA Sports FIFA 18


Splatoon 2

Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Pokkén Tournament DX

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

It's also possible that Nintendo will be sharing more details about the 3DS Pokémon games it announced during its recent Pokémon-centric livestream.

If Nintendo is feeling adventurous, it might decide to reveal some titles that have been rumored, like Pokémon Stars or a new Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo Switch — but it's pretty unlikely.

Either way, we won't have long to know for sure. We'll be covering all the biggest news from Nintendo's E3 presentation as it rolls in.
