As E3 looms, Nintendo is beginning to reveal its plans for the conference. The company announced today that it will be holding a pre-release tournament for Splatoon 2, which will arrive on the Nintendo Switch later this summer. In recent years, the publisher has hosted similar events during previous E3 weeks, promoting games such as Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. This also positions Splatoon 2 as a title focused on competitive play, as Nintendo continues to push into the realm of eSports.

With the expo only a few weeks away, it's likely that Nintendo will continue to reveal its plans for its showcase very soon. Stay tuned!
