Play Nintendo - Announcing Nintendo @ E3 2014

Recommended Posts

Whatever they're announcing later, it's going to be the only 3DS game announced at E3, so it'd better be good.  The new 3DS Fossil Fighters, nice though it looks, may have only been announced for the west like five minutes ago but it was released in Japan back in February, so I'm hoping it's not just that.  Or Yokai Watch.  I guess I could live with it not being an actually new game if it was the Dragon Quest VII remake...  2am's a bit late for an announcement for me, though, so I'll find out tomorrow.

Hmmm, one day of E3 left, and Nintendo's already shown a lot of good stuff, However, I think they have saved a couple of big surprises for last. One of their big initiaves this year was to keep news and games and excitement going the entire event since the digital event, and I don't think they are going to stop now. There have been a couple of titles they didn't put in the actual conference event due to time constraints, and to keep things going, so I think we might have one last big reveal left from them for this year, and I think that might be:

 

Pokken fighters

But, I guess we will just have to wait and see ;)

Code Name S.T.E.A.M., a steampunk action turn-based strategy game. Think a mix between Advance Wars and Valkyria Chronicles. Also the art style is like American comics.

They also inadvertently hinted that Advance Wars isn't dead. Though it is likely on hiatus. :P

I hope you're right.  With two days of hindsight it's pretty clear that this has been a rubbish E3 for the 3DS.  But I'm prepared to give it a day before I accuse Nintendo of treating 3DS owners like lepers for owning the better-selling console.

There's stuff, sure, though I don't know if two games in the same genre and effectively the same series by closely-linked developers are the best example.  But I was hoping Nintendo would take the E3 opportunity to announce maybe more than one 3DS game.  A lot of recent 3DS announcements haven't even come out of E3 proper, and consist mostly of a few lagging localisation announcements (Fantasy Life's Japanese release was in December... 2012).

From nintendo proper we only get pokemon and this code name steam thimg amd the pokemon one is a remake. So its pretty dry plus its been ages since a wario or metroid platformer has graced a handheld

I'm sure at this point the world cup has stolen all the attention from E3 now, but I can safely say Nintendo won it. You have to admit, while a lot of Nintendo's games aren't coming out until 2015, it was good that Nintendo could still showcase gameplay of the majority of them. It was a good way of keeping the attention on them for the entirety of two days now.

 

Unlike Sony or Microsoft who mostly showed trailers, concept art, and small snipits of gameplay, Nintendo kept their stream going with various events, full gameplay, and discussion with the devs. 

 

I think that this is definitely going to be something that Sony and Microsoft are going to approach doing during E3 next year, and I am eager to see what they will try. 

 

And at this point, I can safely say Nintendo won E3.

This was the last thing the devs did (Sakurai included) before many of them left:

Gotta love that one guy near the door, he's all like "I just walked in here to say goodbye to everybody since E3 was over and I don't know what the fuck is going on"
