" Nintendo will transform its booth at the E3 video game trade show next month in Los Angeles to immerse fans in the world of the newest game in The Legend of Zelda franchise – playable for the first time ever at the show. To ensure attendees are able to truly experience the freedom of exploration the game offers, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U will be Nintendo’s focus of the show this year, and will be the only playable game in Nintendo’s booth via extended demos.
At E3 this year, we’re treating people to an immersive Zelda experience,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “By giving attendees extended hands-on time with this remarkable game, they’ll be able to get a much deeper understanding of something new for the franchise.”
Nintendo’s kickoff to the E3 show happens at 9 a.m. PT Tuesday, June 14, when Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime introduces Nintendo Treehouse: Live, which will be dedicated to a day of live-streamed gameplay of The Legend of Zelda. This will be the world’s first in-depth look at the game, which will also include commentaries by Nintendo developers. The Legend of Zelda gameplay will be streamed from the E3 show floor via Nintendo’s channels on YouTube and Twitch, as well as on http://e3.nintendo.com. The stream will include game coverage, behind-the-scenes info and plenty of fun.
Series Producer Eiji Aonuma has said that this new installment in The Legend of Zelda franchise will be a clean break from the conventions of previous games, removing boundaries that forced players to follow a set path and introducing new gameplay that has not been experienced in previous games in the series." - Nintendo
Nintendo is also holding a sweepstakes where a lucky fan can win a trip to E3 this year to experience the new Legend of Zelda in LA.
I said this in my last post about Nintendo at E3 2016, Nintendo is taking a chance by making this the only playable game at E3. I'm not knocking the game itself because I'm almost positive that it will be EPIC!!!. It just not saying much for the rest of its fan base. The past few years Nintendo has basically cut off its traditional theatrics at E3 for a simple Nintendo Direct outlining upcoming games to be released by years end. While this was a bummer for most we were content because it still gave us something to look forward too. Now their only focus is Zelda and it won't be releasing until Spring 2017. This may leave use Nintendo fans at E3 feeling a little blue. +Nintendo , this is an ambitious move and I'm hoping it works out for you...
On another note...
