Nintendo, what are you doing? Nintendo, Stop!
"In a surprise video posted to Facebook, Reggie Fils-Aime of Nintendo of America has detailed the company's E3 2013 showing, answering a few of the questions people have posed. The most obvious one regards Nintendo's choice of not holding an E3 conference.
Reggie's response is that Nintendo is always ready to surprise people. The answer was followed by a reveal of what Nintendo would be doing for E3.
On 7AM PT, June 11, Nintendo will be holding a Nintendo Direct instead of a conference, showing heavy-hitters like a new 3D Mario, Smash Bros., and Mario Kart. At 12PM PT, Nintendo will release developer interview videos. An hour later, a software recap video will become available, and a day-one wrap up video will join it that night. Apart from the day's timeline, Reggie announced that they will be simultaneously posting on their Twitter and Facebook accounts what is revealed during the Nintendo Direct and throughout the day, so anyone without access to a livestream can still learn everything without waiting for posts to appear."
Nintendo Direct may not sound so bad after all! This is what we like to here, Nintendo!
"Masahiro Sakurai, the creator of the Super Smash Bros. series, has taken to Twitter to tantalize gamers about the new entry's forthcoming reveal. The game, which is being co-developed by Namco Bandai, is coming to Wii U and 3DS, though details have been scare since its initial announcement at E3 2011.
For those of you who don't speak Japanese, here's a rough translation of what he had to say:
"Please take note: on the Nintendo Direct broadcast on June 11, we will be showing the first images of our new Smash Bros - simultaneously, worldwide, at the same time." Note that the wording that directly translates to "images" could also be interpreted as "clips," so it's not out of the questions that we'll actually see first footage for this game come next week.
We already knew Smash Bros. was going to be revealed at E3, and that it would make an appearance in the next Nintendo Direct (set to air June 11 at 7:00am PDT). Since Sakurai-san is going out of his way to hype this broadcast, we're hoping to see some gameplay, or perhaps even a trailer, for the next evolution of Smash Bros."
But, what about a new Zelda Wii U?
Let's hope that Nintendo will give us a heads up in their new, "Nintendo Direct" for a new Zelda Wii U. On the bright side, we know Nintendo is developing the new "A Link to the Past 2" for Nintendo 3DS!
What are you Deviants hoping to see in the new Zelda title? I'd like to see some Goron's and Zora's again, how about you? Leave a comment below!
