“As you’ve already seen, a lot of news about Nintendo games and services that traditionally would be held until E3 is being delivered this year through Nintendo Directs, and various press events. This approach will continue between now and E3. No matter where you are in the world, you’ll be fully informed. We look forward to continuing to provide you with Nintendo news and content in ways you haven’t before experienced. Beyond the news that will be communicated through Nintendo Direct videos in the run up to E3, at the show itself we’re hosting two smaller events on Tuesday morning before the LACC opens instead of just our traditional one event. A media event and a partner presentation will both occur that morning. While the audiences will be different between the two events, both will occur on the Tuesday morning of E3 (June 11) which is the date and time period the public has come to expect for Nintendo to deliver E3 news.
So Nintendo are having more Directs leading up to E3 as well as events on June 11th.
The more I read about this it seems like this is actually the right call. The e3 presentations as of late have often left people with more questions than answers and I feel this will be a better way for nintendo to get the message they want to across.Remember the wii u presentation that left people wonder "so what is it?" this might help eliminate those issues. It will also make it easier for people to get a better look at the games and get a deeper impression of what the wii U is about which is incredibly important at this point. It might not be the most glamorous decision but it could be just what the wii U needs. Plus nintendo directs leading up to the E3 are a major plus and could actually get a lot of attention from gamers thirsty for real news during a time that is essential just filled with rumors and speculation.
