The Legend of Zelda may be the only playable demo at E3, but Nintendo's streams will cover a variety of different titles.

Nintendo previously announced that the new installment in The Legend of Zelda franchise would be "the only playable game in Nintendo's booth via extended demos" in order to "ensure attendees are able to truly experience the freedom of exploration the game offers." In addition, in place of the Nintendo Direct, the company planned to host a day-long Zelda stream. Today, Nintendo expanded on its E3 plans, which include more information on the E3 streaming coverage.

The first stream at 9am PT on June 14 focuses largely on The Legend of Zelda, but will also include live gameplay of Pokemon Sun and Moon. The next stream, at 10am PT on June 15, will include a Pok?mon GO developer Q&A, and will also showcase upcoming releases for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, including Monster Hunter Generations, Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.

The new The Legend of Zelda will release in 2017 alongside Nintendo's new console, codenamed NX. Series Producer Eiji Aonuma said that the newest Zelda will be "a clean break from the conventions of previous games," introducing new gameplay and removing boundaries "that forced players to follow a set path."
