Nintendo has announced its plans for E3 2015, which includes the return of the Nintendo World Championships, a Nintendo Digital Event, a special Nintendo Treehouse live from the E3 show floor, and a special event at Best Buy.

Prior to the start of E3, Nintendo will be holding a new Nintendo World Championships tournament on Sunday, June 14 in Los Angeles, California. It’s been 25 years since the last tournament was held, and to mark the occasion, Nintendo of America CEO Reggie Fils-Aime will be competing.

On Tuesday, June 16 at 9am PT, Nintendo will be hosting yet another Digital Event instead of holding a big presentation directly from E3. There will also be an expanded Nintendo Treehouse Live event. And for this year’s E3, Nintendo will be highlighting even more games and will also have some guest appearances from its developers.

Nintendo will once again be bringing E3 to its fans as they have partnered up with Best Buy to allow them to play Mario Maker on Wii U. The events will take place between 4pm - 9pm local time on Wednesday, June 17, and 12pm - 5pm local time on Saturday, June 20. Those in attendance will receive a 30th anniversary Super Mario Bros. pin, while supplies last. Nintendo has yet to disclose the full schedule and locations for the E3 events at Best Buy, but will disclose that information soon.
