E3 Week – Through the Years: Nintendo at E3 2014
It has probably escaped no one’s notice but E3 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo) is coming and we already know what Nintendo’s plans are; they are, in fact, replicating the incredible set-up they had last year with the Digital Presentation and Treehouse Live from E3. So if this is anything like last year, we are really in for a treat again in 2015.
Last year, Nintendo did something a little bit different, exchanging their usual presence for a different presence entirely. That is not to say that Nintendo were absent in the slightest, in fact they made probably the biggest impact in years. As well as a constant broadcast of new games from the talented (and seemingly very friendly) guys and girls at the Nintendo Treehouse, the Big N also threw out this little diamond of a presentation.
Beginning with a delightful Robot Chicken-esque intro (both playing along with Nintendo’s usual silliness with these things, and also playing with the errant fanboys – or setting them on fire), then going straight into probably one of the best sketches Nintendo have ever had (the epic fight between Reggie and Iwata), the whole Presentation was an exercise in what Nintendo do best; Fun. Bear in mind, this was the E3 that brought us the incredible Splatoon, along with Yoshi’s Wooly World and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
It had been a long time, but Nintendo was back on form.
So, in these last couple days until this year’s Digital Presentation, what do you want to see? Find us on Facebook, or the StreetPass Brighton page and let us know in our E3 voting threads. Want to chat about E3 or #NSE3Week? Drop a comment or Tweet me @reuthegamer.
