In a press release on Thursday, June 6 in the morning, Nintendo detailed the games that fans can expect to see in the showroom at E3 2019. Titles like The Sword and Shield The Mansion 3 of Luigi The Legend of Zelda: The Awakening of Link and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was confirmed, but one of the most anticipated Nintendo titles of 2019 was not included: Animal Crossing .
While this does not necessarily mean that it will not have an appearance on E3, especially since the release mentions that these games are "in addition to other playable games on the Nintendo booth," their absence from the list could arouse concern among the fans who have been waiting to learn more about the long-awaited title. 19659003] More on Animal Crossing could be in the plans for the Nintendo Direct scheduled for Tuesday morning, June 11.
