Nintendo announced its E3 2016 plans today, and it looks like the usual Nintendo Direct won’t be a part of it. Instead, Nintendo explained that it would host a Treehouse live event. The stream will be kicked off by COO Reggie Fils-Aime, and it sounds like it will focus entirely on the upcoming Legend of Zelda game.
The stream will provide players with the “world’s first in-depth look at the game,” and some of the creators will also be there to talk about it. As detailed earlier in the month, the Wii U version of the game will be the only playable version at E3 – and in fact, the only game Nintendo will have at their booth.
"To ensure attendees are able to truly experience the freedom of exploration the game offers, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U will be Nintendo's focus of the show this year, and will be the only playable game in Nintendo's booth via extended demos."
The latest Legend of Zelda hasn’t received a firm release date, but is slated for 2017 on both the Wii U and the NX.
