Nintendo Outline Their E3 Presence In A Crazy Video

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.



  1. Haha nice video. Rather have more of these type of announcements rather than Sony updating their ‘how many PS4s we’ve sold’ every fracking month. TSA E3 bingo should offer an option which predicts Sony will recount their sales figures. Rant over.

    Looking forward to what gets announced with E3, especially with Nintendo. I don’t care for all the criticism against them, they’re an awesome games/console company, and I’d enjoy seeing what new games come to the Wii U.

    • Yep. Their marketing strategies are pants and they are rubbish at spacing out their games (4 major releases than 12+ months of nothing), but Nintendo are still one of the best companies out there when it comes to raw quality. Interested to see what they do with the Wii U this coming year.

  2. Zelda music throughout… Coincidence?

    The Treehouse are Nintendos localisation team, translating all their Japanese games, this could get very, very interesting.
