While last year, Nintendo opted for a more subdued E3 showing with a Nintendo Direct broadcast, it appears as though they’re going all-out this year, and have even teamed up with YouTube channel Mega64 to create a video which even the dearest of Nintendo fans probably won’t understand, which sees a robotic version of Reggie Fils-Aime infiltrate Nintendo for their E3 secrets.
Through this, they’ve revealed that there will be a Smash Bros. Invitational tournament, which is definitely something to watch out for, but if you can’t make it to the show, you’ll also be able to play the game at Best Buy stores while E3 is running. This is presumably the Wii U version they’re talking about.
They’ve also announced something described as the “Treehouse” which will have daily livestreams featuring developers and people within the industry discussing Nintendo’s new content.
Finally, and this is the big one, they’ll be hosting a Digital Event which seems to be in a similar vein to last year’s pre-recorded Nintendo Direct stream, where they promise to announce tons of new games and “amazing debuts”.
Good plans, but seems like they’ve had a few too many of Mario’s mushroom power-ups, judging from the video alone.
