Nintendo, Cyberpunk, And FF 7 Topped Twitter Trends At E3 2019

With E3 2019 behind us, Twitter has revealed its top trending moments and game announcements from the annual event.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the biggest moment overall was Nintendo’s annual Direct presentation on Tuesday morning, which encompassed all of its games lineup including a surprise peek at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. Keanu Reeves’ appearance at the Xbox conference came in second place, and Square’s dual showings of the Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers during its press conference came in third.

Nintendo was also the most tweeted-about of any publisher, which makes sense given that its press conference was also the most tweeted moment. It was followed by Xbox, Sony, Square Enix, and Bethesda. Every publisher that held a press event, including Electronic Arts’ EA Play presentation on Saturday, gained the top spot on Twitter’s trending topics.

The top new games this year were FF7, Cyberpunk 2077, Breath of the Wild 2, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Avengers. Overall, the top games and franchises were Pokemon (due to Sword and Shield), Fortnite, Splatoon and Super Smash Bros Ultimate due to their tournaments, and Apex Legends.
