Nintendo Direct E3 2013 Presentation


Membero Americo
Sep 12, 2010


Nintendo revealed a few months earlier that it would not have the usual annual Pre-E3 Press Conference this year. They decided to take the "Direct" approach with his fans while showing off its software line-up to retailers and journalist in less "flashy" ways at the convention center. While some may think of this as a bad thing, it also has its positives. For instance, less time will be lost because of technical difficulties, crowd reactions, awkward silences, etc. Time will be more controlled, which potentially means more announcements.
Nintendo started their "Nintendo Direct" initiative about 2 years ago, delivering their messages and announcements directly to us, the fans. It has proven successful, every Direct having record views.

This is the E3 Direct, has been confirmed to be approximately one hour long and will talk about the Wii U games that will be shown at E3 as well as future Wii U titles. (Probably maybe also some 3DS games, let's not forget about that.)

Super Mario U from EAD Tokyo, Mario Kart U and Super Smash Bros. 4 have been confirmed so far to be shown at E3 (and playable in Super Mario and Mario Kart's case) so expect to see those during the Direct.

I want to be hype, but it's hard.
They have so much to live up to...

And 3DS probably won't even get much focus.

I'm hoping for some important news about the 3DS - like a price drop. I hope it isn't 100 percent about the Wii U as I may have to wait until the next Direct.
