Nintendo Direct Announcements May Mean Less News from E3

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – One of the top gaming conventions will occur in the form of E3, set to be held June 11-13 in Los Angeles, California. While many game announcements are made during the event, this year’s attendees could expect less from one top game developer. Why?

Nintendo jumped the gun, recently announcing a variety of new titles set to land on the company’s Wii U game console – a device that was released in November of last year.

New products are on the way. Among them are modern takes on Nintendo classics such as the Legend of Zelda, Mario and Mario Kart.

However, other titles include Wii Fit U Communities, RPG games from franchises such as Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei (made possible via a partnership with Atlas).

“The fun of video games is not only just playing games, but also sharing experiences together with people – even though they live far away, their skill levels are different or their experience does not happen at the same time,” commented Nintendo President Satoru Iwata in a press release.

Nintendo Direct occurred last Wednesday and despite some big news, it’s still expected the company will show some new, exciting stuff come June.
