It looks like the video game giant is returning to the E3 stage this year.
I would like to see them do a full E3 conference again. I like watching all the conferences
E3 Conference + Nintendo Directs + Tree house could be pretty cool.
I'm ok with this just along as they have a conference I have no idea why they went with those silly directs (although the last gave us a few laughs) I would like to see them be more competitive. ;)
OMG, New console!!
I was thinking the same thing! Why else have a conference unless it is to show off either new hardware or something else. Could be Quality Of Life they are going to showcase though. Who knows with Nintendo anymore.
Nintendo always had one of the most entertaining conferences with little filler, so I hope they do return.
Their last conference before Wii U wasn't so great IMO but since then I think they have done better. Last year was a really good show for them IMO.
Would be great if they have a stage show again.
I'd rather have a streaming again.
I'm sure they'd do both.
I really enjoyed last year's stream presentation. No filler, no awkward moments, just pure gameplay with a few interviews. I'm not hating on the stage shows at all, but the streams leave very little margin for error. All in all, hope everything is as good if not better than last year; they killed it!
Same, I thought last year's was fantastic!
I like how ppl are awaiting a proper conference, where are those that said e3 directs are better?
Right above you
If they can find a way of topping the Iwata vs Reggie scene from last year, they'll easily blow everyone out of the water. That was just too freaking cool.XD
I hope they don't do a live stage conference like MS and Sony. Their E3 direct was one of the best I have seen in a long time. It was fun, entertaining and it really captured their love of games.
This. The other companies should do the same, for the sake of fun, 'cause that's what video games are about. At this point, E3 conferences are just business talks with modified gameplays, charged with tons of BS.
Exactly, Last E3 it felt like Sony and MS rushed in 3rd party suits to show their CGI MULTIPLAT games and have them announce exclusive or timed DLC as if it was some kind of big deal. Nintendo on the other hand showed nothing but exclusives and actual gameplay. If Sony or MS could do this for their next E3 they would easily take it just as Nintendo did.
Plus they had all day live streaming of the new games which was awesome.
I like the digital better and I highly doubt they will go back to a press conference stage. The digital event was really successful with over 11 million views. The digital event allows for a lot more creative room like the robot chicken skits, Iwata vs Reggie fights, etc. There are no awkward moments and they can more easily connect with the audience. They are also saving money to and more people are viewing it because it is online and easy to share.
I agree. I liked theirs the best. Sony was 2nd, because they started talking about Sony TV and had those terrible jokes. M$ was last because it was bad, out of the big 3. I enjoyed the silly robot chicken stuff and all of the jokes. I hope they don't go back to a live conference. Who knows, maybe they are booking it for something else, like they had the smash tourney. Maybe they are going to do something with Zelda.
They'll play the legend of Zelda trailer and star fox trailer. Then drop the mic and walk away.
We know were getting a Metroid trailer as well. So Legend Of Zelda, Star Fox AND Metroid??? Hands down E3 in the bag! (Oh also show Fatal Frame 5 coming west! THEN drop the mic lol.)
LMAO. That would be hilarious. Play the trailers, Reggie picks up the mic, looks out at the crowd.. "Nuff said" and then drops the mic. XD
They would be instant bad asses!
There has to be some big huge crazy announcement coming. They already leaked Metroid, and Star Fox is coming out before the end of this year, Mario isn't getting a mainline platformer again until the next console...so what could it be?
Zelda is the big release this year, I'm sure they will want as many eyes on that as possible. Metroid was also probably the surprise but stupid leakers ruin everything. Possibly a revamped WiiU with (not that it needs it) but a larger hard drive and a longer battery life for the Gamepad? Anything is possible, the Directs were going perfectly so they have something up their sleeve if it means a conference. Edit: Could also just be another Smash Tournament, I forgot they did that last year and it was a big hit.
No. Do a Nintendo Treehouse again.
I'd rather see a Direct. That way it can be edited and perfected to avoid any embarrassments...Ridge Racer anyone?! Also it focuses more on what I want to see and thats games, not corporate BS which needs to stay in the boardroom. The only reason they'd need to do a stage show would be to show off new hardware...LET THE SPECULATION BEGIN!!
It's about time. This is also indicative of a Wii U successor (since it's performing poorly, but I doubt this) and/or a 3DS successor (also doubt this since "New 3DS" was just released). Although there's a slim chance of those, I think this is an event to highlight that new system they're working on, maybe it's a PS TV type device or something portable but also doubles as a home console/stream box multimedia type thing. Here's what I hope it is though; a Wii U upgraded into a "New Wii U." It would help tremendously.
Could very well just be another Smash Invitational Tournament.
Or it could be another closed door reveal, like Star Fox WiiU.
Don't forget they will probably give some screen time to Xenoblade as well. Zelda, Star Fox, Metroid, Xenoblade, Mario Maker.. who knows what else. Not to mention stuff for the 3DS as well.
looking at that picture i cant imagine a smash tournament in there. its to small. hmmm very interesting it could really be a press conf.
This is just for a roundtable event. Just a few press asking questions post Direct like last year and every other year.
