E3 2008 wasn’t a particularly good one for Nintendo. Sure, the company was riding high in the sales charts but the limp presentation (which was essentially geared towards the casual gamer) did little to appease dedicated fans – and after all, they would have been the ones watching.
You think your average soccer mom has even heard of E3?
Anyway, Nintendo is keen to make up for this, it would seem. Speaking to GameTrailers, Nintendo of America ringleader Reggie Fils-Aime had this to say:
From Nintendo's perspective we always go into E3 with a very high bar, wanting to satisfy not only the core fans but also ourselves. We're hoping to do a much better job this year.
Reggie even went on to add that we can expect new projects from the teams behind the Mario and Zelda franchises.
Beats hearing about Wii Music 2, eh?
