Devolver Digital has been hosting satirical conferences at E3 that make fun of things like cryptocurrency, early access, loot boxes, microtransactions, and retro consoles. The Devolver shows exist in order to parody the harmful trends of the video game industry, rather than for revealing new games and there is no reason to think their 2019 show will be any different.

Square has also revealed that Marvel's Avengers will be shown at their conference, which is a huge deal as almost nothing has been revealed about the game since 2017.

Available to watch on: Twitch & Official Website

The last big event of E3 2019 will be a Nintendo Direct. Nintendo's 2019 lineup seems to be fleshed out, but the fans still don't know the details about many of the upcoming games. There are rumors that the new Animal Crossing will be one of Nintendo's featured games and a reveal of a new DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate seems to be a safe bet. Nintendo will likely announce a lot of new games, as they made the mistake of focusing on one game (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate) in 2018 and it caused the company's stock value to drop.

Notable By Their Absence - Sony

For those who are still unaware - Sony will not be hosting a conference at E3 and there won't be any official PlayStation presence at the event. There will be some third-party games shown that are confirmed to be released on the PlayStation 4, such as the Final Fantasy VII Remake, but Sony itself will be absent from E3 2019.
