GR: Nintendo president and CEO Satoru Iwata will not be attending E3 this year, Nintendo has confirmed.
Well this sucks, get well soon Mr. Iwata.
He will be in the Nintendo Directs I'm guessing though.
There is no Nintendo Direct
Directs are pre-recorded for the most part so I would hope so.
Nooo, he was meant to drop the bomb !!
That's is sad. I like him a lot. I hope he gets better soon.
We will still "see" him though. lol June 10th he will be in digital form guys.
Sweet, the bomb will be dropped ..... DIGITALLY !
Who will be there to make us understand?
REGGIE! And I hope he is still out of Bubble Gum!
I hope its not Zombie Reggie though.
I'm sure he'll appear in the Nintendo Direct.
Those things are recorded before hand right?
No Nintendo Direct will be hosted
Mr Iwata San get well soon. /bow
Didn't this already get an article?
Yep. Its a duplicate.
Wait until next week. The "News" section will be a flood of duplicate articles from no-name websites hoping to scrape a few hits out of the frenzy of excitement. I really hope the mods bring out the b&hammer or crack down a little on some of the more notorious sites around here, otherwise it'll be a real headache navigating the front page.
IMO this is an important announcement - If he is truly not well enough To go to E-3 then it must be something pretty serious - I can t see a CEO of a games co missing E-3 just as a precaution - This E -3 is by far the most important of the Wii u s lifetime and critical for Nintendo as a whole
Finally someone gets it. We get it Nintendo is not going to have an E3 conference but at least have the decency of showing up especially if you're the CEO. ;)
The fact they are not having a press conf and the CEO not showing will not play well in the national ( non gaming) press and that is who Nintendo needs to reach this year- in addition to the core- I think they are making some headway w the core particulary if they can stop the long software droughts - right now they have some great games announced but we only have releas windows on 2 or 3 of them - if they come out at e 3 and don't offer reales windows on most of these games or most of them slip to 2015 or beyond then it won t help much
Wow, clearly you didn't even read the article. His physician advised him not to travel. Meaning he's ill or suffering other conditions making him unfit for traveling overseas. Decency is not the issue health is. 0/10 troll go home
His body isn't ready.
What, can't afford the plane ticket now?
If you actually read the article you'd find Iwata is not in good health and was advised not to travel. Thanks for not reading the article and propagating the spread of ignorance.
Maybe Mario and/or Luigi will host E3! Wait, no, that'd be creepy. I'll settle for Reggie.
