Nintendo has followed in Microsoft foot steps and has started teasing its E3 2017 plans.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime who is the king of E3 hype has told Fox News that Nintendo has “big” things in store for this year’s show. He went one step further to say that “E3 is always a big time for Nintendo. We look at each E3 as a unique opportunity to tell our story and we’re gonna have a big E3. We’re going to be showcasing a aviary of games”.
Reggie also stated that they’d have not online Nintendo Switch titles but some Nintendo 3DS content.
It was well known last year that Nintendo received some backlash for not revealing the Nintendo Switch at E3 last year. Gamers were shocked to learn that they were only showing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (which turned out to be fantastic). We also remember 2015 in which Nintendo had arguable their worst E3 to date.
They’ll be looking to come out swinging this year with them aiming to push the Nintendo Switch in the lead-up to the holiday season.
E3 will take place in mid June in Los Angeles. It’s open to the public for the first time ever, although its still expected that most games will be shown off behind closed doors.
Nintendo have not yet revealed whether they’ll be having an on-stage conference or a pre-recorded Nintendo Direct.
