Earlier in the month IGN reported that all three major companies, Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo will not be attending the E3 convention. Nintendo has confirmed to the media outlet that they will not be attending the event this year as it did not fit into their plans.

“We approach our involvement in any event on a case-by-case basis and are always considering various ways to engage with our fans,” Nintendo told IGN in a statement. “Since this year’s E3 show didn’t fit into our plans, we have made the decision to not participate. However, we have been and continue to be a strong supporter of the ESA and E3.”

It could very well be that Nintendo just doesn’t have anything huge coming out in the last half of 2023 since Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom comes out in May. The company did confirm that they’d be attending PAX East 2023 which takes place March 23-26 and it’s possible we see Zelda playable there with a short demo for fans and media.
