Nintendo announced a few weeks ago it would not be holding a global press conference at this year’s E3, instead choosing to hold smaller, more direct events that would invite western journalists to check out some of their upcoming titles. We now have more information as to what Nintendo is planning exactly according to an E3 invitation received by Ubergizmo.
The invitation sent from Nintendo says it will give media “the chance to get closer to the games through a unique hands-on experience” prior to E3’s official start in what the company is calling will be its “Wii U Software Showcase.” On the morning of June 11, Nintendo’s most iconic game designer Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo of America’s COO Reggie Fils-Aime will take part in a short presentation at 10:30 a.m. PDT, followed by a gameplay and Q&A session starting at 11 a.m. PDT.
Considering how much effort Nintendo has put into the software lineup for the 3DS this year, we’re hoping the company will also put the same effort into its struggling Wii U. We know the next Super Smash Bros. game will make its appearance at this year’s E3 along with a new 3D Mario game and the Wii U remake to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Hopefully Nintendo will have more to announce at this year’s E3.
