Nintendo Announces New E3 Plans

Nintendo Announces New E3 Plans

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.

I dont really get what Nintendo are doing... they have alot of ever popular franchises and they just do nothing with them. Mariokart seems to get done regularly but nothing else. If I was a Nintendo fan Id be hoping for 2+ Metroid games per console gen, 2+ Zelda, 2+ Fleshed out Mario games etc etc. They are failing at their own first party games let alone the third party ones. I think after the success of the Wii they thought innervation was the key but failed with Wii U probably more so because it wasnt that special and then the games, or lack there of , blew it more... Or do they just not care enough in the main console market because the handheld market is where they are winning and putting all their resources into that? Just my view from a non fan looking from the outside wondering whats going on...

As much as I want more information on the new Zelda all I really want is a name and a trailer. So much of the game is going to spoiled by the time E3 rounds off. I might actually go media blind on Nintendo stuff this E3 :

A year?! More or less a YEAR before we get the first (originally in) HD Zelda?!?! No way am I going to torture myself with watching extensive gameplay of it when I won't be able to get my hands on the game (that I bought a Wii U for no less) for another 8 or 9 months?!? #whoamIkiddingI'llwatcheverysecondofit100timesover
