Nintendo, as is the norm, waited until just before the E3 doors opened before kicking off its announcements and events. There was a 25 minute showcase followed by extensive Nintendo Treehouse demonstrations and reveals, and then the Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational to wrap things up. There were surprises, not just in the games revealed but also the manner in which Nintendo unveiled them.
