Feature: The Big E3 Nintendo Direct Round-up

The most important E3 coverage in one place

Nintendo may not have hosted a live press conference this year, but through Nintendo Direct and a number of subsequent developer videos it still bombarded us with information of games coming this year and beyond. Although most of the big reveals were already known ahead of time, we had some important first looks, and an extensive line-up of first-party Wii U content, particularly, was given a lot of air time on the E3 floor.

As is often the case with these events, keeping up with goings-on or even finding the key information you want can be difficult with so much to see. So consider this your all-in-one convenient guide to the most important, significant stories related to Nintendo’s Direct broadcast and all of the information that came out of the first day.
