decided to new news, new thread this, as people may be arranging trips to play Nintendo games and this may effect their plans


Nintendo changes its approach to the show every year. This June, Nintendo will focus its attentions on the upcoming game in The Legend of Zelda series. The Wii U version of the game will be playable for the first time on the E3 show floor, and it will be the only playable game Nintendo presents at the show, in order to provide attendees a complete immersion. Additional information about Nintendo’s E3 plans will be announced in the future.



Nintendo UK say it too

What the fuck.

Why did they get so much floor space?

they were probably planning to have nx there and something behind the scenes caused a delay and a massive change in their decisions, so this is what's happening instead.

but why the only game? there are third-party things on other platforms. there's even tokyo silhouette mirage on wii u, and color splash, and other first-party games for 3ds.

just baffling.

edit: oh so there might be 3ds stuff. makes more sense with pokemon and kirby.

Well at least we won't have big expectations at this year's E3.
Iwata would have handled this much better I guess.

What could NX possibly be that Nintendo thinks this is preferable to actually showing it at E3?

They legitimately have no idea how to run a company, I'm 100% convinced of this now.

THEY ARE A COMPANY THAT WORKS IN A CONSUMER INDUSTRY AND YET THEY DON'T LET PEOPLE SEE OR USE THEIR PRODUCTS AT THE BIGGEST MARKETING AVENUE AVAILABLE TO THEM.

I do. Not. Get it.

Are we sure this is right and not a misunderstanding or mistranslation? Federation Force isn't coming out until August and they've had it playable at events for a while now, so there's no reason why they wouldn't have it at E3.

OK they must be having their own event this summer. It makes no sense otherwise, they have games like Paper Mario and Metroid FF that are coming this year.

But I want to see Color Splash!!

This is amazing, now I'm really curious what they're gonna do. The reason why I'm not freaking out is because I can't see myself getting bored anytime soon of Splatoon and Mario Maker, plus I planned to revisit and replay older Wii U classics so I won't be bothered by the drought leading up to NX, however I recognize that this is huuuge.
