Nintendo Attending TOKYO GAME SHOW 2018
Nintendo will be attending the TOKYO GAME SHOW this year, TGS for short. It has been over a decade since Nintendo showed off the Wii at TGS in 2005. However, it seems that this will be mainly for business-only and by appointment. So, it seems they will not be doing anything like Sony does, as in a big showcase. This is all according to KOTAKU and BCN.
Should Nintendo hold a press conference?
Nintendo could try a press conference once for a change. It would not harm the company a whole lot. If it does not go well, than next year they can just have a Nintendo Direct for the fall. In addition to a Direct, game booths available for the press and public to experience is a great idea. TGS may not be as big as E3, but for Japan, it may be a huge event.
TGS is like the Japanese version of E3. The event will be held on September 22nd through the 23rd this fall. They will also be open for businesses from September 20th to the 21st. (This is likely more for the press and investors. Ex. Press Conferences) You can learn more here.

Minecraft is available on so many platforms now, including PC’s, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, Switch, iOS, and Android just to name a handful. It even features Cross-play support.
By supporting cross-play, thats means if someone owns a Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS or Android device, or Windows 10, that person will be able to play with a friend on a competitor’s platform. One big exception to this is Sony with their PlayStation 4.
The PlayStation 4 is this generation’s best selling console and Sony has had numerous hackings with their PlayStation Network service. These are likely the reasons why Sony has opted out of cross-play. However, this is not consumer-friendly and angers many gamers around the world. Regardless of gaming politics, this is not the right move for Sony and it needs to be changed.
Nintendo even uploaded the cross-play trailer for Minecraft on their YouTube channel. You can watch it above. They even show the Xbox One logo and a Xbox One Controller throughout the video. They made a big deal out of it in the description too, saying that you can play the Switch version with gamers on Windows 10 and Xbox One. Another option is Mobile. But the point of this video seemed to be more of trolling Sony none-the-less. Check it out above.
