We’re only a few days away from the biggest gaming spectacle of the year, and to help fans keep track of the sheer number of broadcasts and live streams that will inundate the Internet next week, Nintendo has put together a convenient calendar of its events for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.

First up is the special Super Smash Bros. presentation, which will be hosted by series director Masahiro Sakurai himself. The broadcast airs this Sunday, June 14, at 7:40 AM Pacific Time, and will cover the upcoming DLC additions to the games (including their second downloadable character, Lucas). Fans can stream the presentation on Nintendo’s official E3 hub.

Also on Sunday is the 2015 Nintendo World Championships, which will be preceded by a live pre-show hosted by members of the Nintendo Treehouse. The pre-show airs from 2:20 – 3 PM Pacific Time, while the tournament itself runs from 3 – 6:30 PM.

Following on Tuesday, June 16, is the presentation Nintendo fans have waited for all year: the Nintendo Digital Event, which promises to bring plenty of announcements and surprises, not to mention new footage of already announced titles like Yoshi’s Woolly World and Xenoblade Chronicles X. (Robert has his own predictions as to what we’ll see during the broadcast, though as Nintendo has doubtlessly proven throughout the years, it’s almost impossible to predict just what the company has up its sleeve.) The Nintendo Digital Event begins at 9 AM Pacific Time and will immediately be followed by a live Treehouse stream from the show floor, offering even more insights into Nintendo’s upcoming games. Two more Treehouse live streams will follow on June 17 and 18, both of which will begin at 9:55 AM.

Of course, even if you aren’t present on the E3 show floor, you’ll still have a chance to go hands-on with the upcoming Mario Maker at a participating Best Buy store. The first Mario Maker demo event occurs on June 17 and will run from 4 – 9 PM local time, while the second takes place on June 20 and runs from noon – 5 PM.

Phew! Nintendo fans certainly have a lot to look forward to over the next week! We have our own plans for this year’s E3 coverage, which we’ll announce shortly, so be sure to check back and join in on the gaming festivities with us!
