Nintendo NTDOY has revealed that it will host an in-person event in Seattle, Washington in September. 

This news, announced via Twitter on Tuesday, comes in the wake of the cancellation of the 2023 edition of E3. The Japanese company with headquarters in Kyoto was originally planning to attend the event but ultimately withdrew, and the biggest players in the industry, like Sony SONY, Microsoft's MSFT Xbox, Tencent TCEHY, Sega and Ubisoft UBSFF, followed suit.

While specific details of what will be shown at the event have not yet been disclosed, the company's website promises an exciting lineup.

Attendees can expect live stage performances, a large-scale themed area, photo opportunities with some of their favorite Nintendo characters and tournaments featuring some of the most skilled gamers around.

"Announcing #NintendoLive 2023, an in-person event for fans of all ages that will take place in Seattle this September! Experience Nintendo Switch gameplay, live stage performances, tournaments, photo ops, and more," Nintendo tweeted.

In a press release, Doug Bowser, president of Nintendo of America, said: “Fans of all ages can currently experience the unique games, characters and worlds of Nintendo on Nintendo Switch, but we want to expand that scope with a new experience.

“With Nintendo Live 2023, we’re giving attendees a chance to celebrate together with family, friends and the broader Nintendo community in the spirit of fun and creating long-lasting memories,” Bowser added.

Nintendo Live is poised to hold its first-ever event outside of Japan. While it has been traditionally been in Kyoto (2018 and 2019) and Tokyo (2022), it will now make its debut in an overseas location.
