Video games publisher Devolver Digital is holding its E3 2019 press conference next month, the company announced via a tweet on Friday.
The press conference is happening on June 9 at 7:00 p.m. PST, and it can be streamed via the official Devolver Digital Twitch.

The gif shared in the tweet suggests that Nina is returning this year.
