E3 Nintendo Press Conference



Nintendo has Tuesday all to itself, for the most part… It just has to compete with the actual show floor.

Nintendo’s conference starts at 9:00 AM PDT, 12:00 PM EST, Tuesday, June 5th. We’re hoping for a release date a pricing info for the WiiU, as well as a display on all us it’s updated functionality! We’re secretly anticipating a 3DS redesign to be announced, but we’re not going to hold our breath for one.
Be sure to check out our coverage on the rest of the E3 Press conferences!

Microsoft on Monday, June 4th at 9:30 AM PDT, 12:30 PM EST.
EA on Monday, June 4th at 1:00 PM PDT, 4:00 PM EST.
Ubisoft on Monday, June 4th at 3:00 PM PDT, 6:00 PM EST.
Sony on Monday, June 4th at 6:00 PM PDT, 9:00 PM EST.

Nintendo said they would not be releasing Pricing info or a Release date at E3. I would expect a date and price at Tokyo Game Show, or if we’re lucky, GamesCom.

I do agree that it would be nice to know, at least we were (supposed to be) aware of this ahead of time.

01:33pm by Drootin

I will add 1 final comment to this, where was the pricing for the system and the controller? We need to know that.

01:28pm by Eric

Nintendo Concludes the conference by stating that there is a lot more to see on the show floor, and in an online after show.

I found the Presentation impressive, but not a blow away like some of the other conferences. It’s really nice to see some core 3rd party support, and the games they’ll be offering for the WiiU. ZombiU, and Arkham City Armored Edition look very promising, as do the 1st party WiiU titles like New Super Mario Bros. U.

3DS took a back seat in favor for it’s own show being broadcast online tomorrow at 6PM PST at E3.Nintendo.com. I will be watching and live blogging that one too! What was shown on for 3DS was New Super Mario Bros. 2, which looks like a ton of fun, and Luigi’s Mansion! Both due out by the end of the year! And Pikmin3 looks like a must have! I’m really excited for this one!

It’s nice to see the casual and fitness games are still a big focus for Nintendo, hate them if you want, these games sell! Since Sony and Microsoft sort of tucked these genre’s under the rug, it’s bound to help WiiU make some money.

Overall, I’m really happy with Nintendo’s E3 Press Conference. I’m really looking forward to future conventions to see what else Nintendo has in store for us!
