Nintendo Confirms Smash Bros., 3D Mario and Mario Kart for E3 Nintendo Direct

Oh snap

Today's Nintendo Direct has come and gone, bringing with it an exclusive Sonic release, more mascot Olympians and some long-awaited release dates. Whether it pushed enough buttons is down to personal opinion, but it was relatively snappy and low-key compared to some other recent broadcasts. Whether a reaction to that or simply an effort...

Nintendo's Changing the Media Game at E3

Abandoning the big presentation

So here's how the E3 game is supposed to be played by the three major game manufacturers.

We're seven days away from E3 2012. That's seven days until we see Nintendo's full vision for Wii U, the next round of 3DS games and how our next year of Nintendo gaming is going to look. It's the most exciting time of the year, and it's nearly upon us. Last year was pretty exciting too. We saw Wii U for the first time, got...

E3 Promises Over 30 Nintendo Titles

Surprises not included

The run-up to E3 is almost as exciting as the event itself, with half the fun in predicting exactly what Nintendo will show. Not every company is as secretive however, as a recently published list reveals the show will play host to at least fifteen DS games and twenty titles for Wii. That may not seem like a huge amount, but bear in mind this list doesn't include SEGA,..

Reggie: We’ll Be Better at E3 This Year

Nintendo hoping to make amends for 2008's dire performance

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?..

Dunaway: No E3 Snowboarding This Time

NOA exec says it will be ‘all about the games’

Last year’s Nintendo E3 press conference was mildly painful to experience. Cammie Dunaway, NOA’s executive VP of sales and marketing, made a somewhat misguided attempt to ‘sell’ the Balance Board, and ended up looking a bit silly. Dunaway is back for this year’s event, but you’ll be glad to know she will resist the urge to replicate the..
