The Nintendo Digital Event nailed the unique presentation aspect once again, but the content no-showed them.
What went wrong?
It’s not like there wasn’t good stuff in the Nintendo Digital Event: Star Fox Zero, The Legend of Zelda: Tri-Force Heroes, Hyrule Warriors Legends, Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam, more Super Mario Maker, and more of the newly renamed Fire Emblem Fates were all shown off. Those were great, even if some weren’t exactly a surprise. The awesome stuff leading up to E3 was just more exciting than the show itself. Not to mention, Star Fox Zero opened the show on a high note, but they had nothing to even touch that level of hype for the rest of the show. If you only have one bullet in the chamber, you don’t fire it in the air as a warning shot. That’s what happened and the Nintendo Digital Event had nowhere to go but down after Star Fox Zero.
