Reggie on E3:
"We demonstrated last year that we are never afraid to reinvent a proven tactic or to break completely new ground if we believe it will provide the best experience for our fans, followers and partners. So, whether you’re attending E3 in person or joining online, there’s an amazing lineup of games, experiences and events coming your way."

Super Smash Bros. Invitational

2014 will see the arrival of not one, but two new Super Smash Bros. games: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. To commemorate this occasion, Nintendo is inviting 16 highly skilled Super Smash Bros. players to the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles to compete in a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament. Thousands of fans in the audience and countless more watching a live stream online will see new Super Smash Bros. characters clash with existing favorites in action for the first time. More important than declaring a winner, however, this event is a celebration of all things Super Smash Bros., and a great way for new and veteran fans to take part in a tribute to this legendary franchise. More information about the 16 invited participants in the tournament, the identity of the announcers, and how fans of the franchise can view the tournament in person and via webcast, will be communicated shortly.

Nintendo Digital Event

Every year, Nintendo looks for the best way to show its games and share its news with fans, media and other key audiences. In 2013, Nintendo decided to forgo a traditional press conference and use a video – in that case a Nintendo Direct – to share its news from E3. The company is building on that approach at E3 2014 with the “Nintendo Digital Event,” a new kind of video program that will reveal and provide further detail about the gaming experiences on the way for Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond. The Nintendo Digital Event will air at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 10.

Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3

This year, Nintendo will offer fans a deeper look at Nintendo’s biggest games of E3, with information directly from the source. The “Treehouse,” the Product Development department at Nintendo of America, will provide in-depth game demos live and unscripted from Nintendo’s booth. This new program will be live streamed during all hours of the E3 show. Fans can get settled in, open their browsers and experience the Nintendo games at E3 like never before.

Super Smash Bros. Smash Fest @ Best Buy

In 2013, Nintendo broke new ground by expanding its E3 activities outside of the walls of the Los Angeles Convention Center and letting fans play some of the games being played on the show floor at participating Best Buy stores. The partnership between Nintendo and Best Buy continues in 2014 and will mark the first time around the world that fans have had the opportunity to get their hands on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

I see that many interpret the "Nintendo Digital Event" as not being a press conference. Can't it (for example) mean a press conference with some additional interactivity for online users?

Very fun announcement video, btw!

Current Top 10: DK:TF, Pikmin 3, MK8, Scram Kitty, SM3DW, LEGO City: Undercover, Wonderful 101, Rayman Legends, Stick it to the Man, Wind Waker HD
Looking forward to:

Treehouse live I think will be the highlight for me. Finally don't have to watch IGN/Gamespot floor shows with their hurried nintendo content.

I think between this and the Tomodachi thing I'm feeling a bit better about what Nintendo has up its sleeve. When Nintendo are confident they fire on all cylinders and throw all of the curve balls. When they have nothing to show they retreat into their shell, stay quiet and start to fumble their way through these big events.

These last few months have had the best oddball promotional stuffs since Non-Specific Action Figure.

That's how I understand it. I don't think this rules out a stage presentation.

The "Digital Event" sounds different, like the presentation will not be like last year's E3 Direct. In other words, it won't work like a typical Nintendo Direct.

I think the fact they didnt say 'we are having a press conference', which they would have if they were going to, rules it out. If they intended to change it up from last year, they would have clearly stated that to let people know.

I don't like the sound of this, it feels like E3 2013 all over again in all of the wrong ways. Not having a press conference kills the hype, and that's something the Wii U desperately needs (right along there with a better lineup). Also, there is WAY too much emphasis on Smash here, and that really worries me because that implies that they don't have much else to show. And since there's a ton of previously announced games that we've heard virtually nothing about for months, I have a feeling that there's not going to be any real surprises here. It's probably going to be mainly, if not completely, games that have been previously announced (Bayonetta 2, X, Yarn Yoshi, SMT X FE, Hyrule Warriors, Sonic Boom) and games that have been previously hinted at (Zelda U, the Pikachu detective game, Mario Galaxy 3, maybe Metroid if we're lucky). And if that's the case, I don't have a lot of hope for this lineup. I want to see more surprises.
