Nintendo Ditches E3 Press Conference Again, Plans Game Streams
By Charles Webb on April 29, 2014
For the second year in a row, Nintendo is bailing on doing a big E3 presentation in favor or smaller events.
Eurogamer reports that the publisher plans a “digital event” which will be streamed at 8 AM ET on June 10th. This makes total sense, given how well Nintendo has been able to reach fans and journalists alike with their regular Nintendo Direct streams, featuring new and upcoming games.
And they’re really embracing this whole streaming thing: top Smash Bros. Wii U players will be competing through the Nintendo feed during the show as part of an invitational event, while Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 will provide a constant stream of gameplay demos throughout the show.
