Nintendo’s President and CEO Satoru Iwata has stated that this year’s E3 will be a little different that years past. The company plans to only focus on Software coming out this year, and will primarily host Nintendo Directs to make new video game announcements.
This comes straight from Satoru Iwata:
“At this years E3 we will not be announcing a new hardware system, so E3’s primary mission will be to have [press, analysts] experience our software. Many people would like to know more about the titles for Wii U that will be announced. We will use the timing of E3 to focus on providing details about our Wii U titles for release this year, and intend to create opportunities for guests to the conference to experience them immediately. We will attempt to use this year’s E3 to make announcements in a new way that we have not tried before.
Unlike previous years, we will not have a large-scale [E3] presentation directed to everyone in the world. Instead, we are planning several smaller events focusing on software for America. Among these hands-on events will be one for American distributors and another for western media.”
I’m not 100% sure what this means. Obviously there is software coming out for the Wii U we don’t know about this year, so it still could be exciting. However, what’s a little bit more interesting is the fact they will be hosting more Nintendo Directs to focus on the American market.
Would you guys rather have Nintendo unveil everything at E3? Or unveil what we will be playing this year at E3, then have Nintendo Directs for new game announcements?
