Nintendo's E3 plans

Post by Gameguy1996 on Tue Apr 29, 2014 3:09 pm

PR email wrote: REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Over the last few years, Nintendo has repeatedly reinvented its approach to E3 by creating unique ways to break news and get fans at home involved in the fun, while also offering great experiences for on-site attendees. That mission continues in 2014 as Nintendo offers a series of new channels to communicate news directly to its key audiences, including fans, media, analysts, investors and business partners. This includes a new format for unveiling news: the Nintendo Digital Event; a Super Smash Bros. tournament; a full slate of live, in-depth game demos from the Nintendo booth; and an opportunity for fans to play Super Smash Bros. for Wii U for the first time at their local Best Buy.

“We demonstrated last year that we are never afraid to reinvent a proven tactic or to break completely new ground if we believe it will provide the best experience for our fans, followers and partners,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s president and chief operating officer. “So, whether you’re attending E3 in person or joining online, there’s an amazing lineup of games, experiences and events coming your way.”

At E3 2014, Nintendo will offer four unique experiences, all under the unifying banner of “Play Nintendo.”

Super Smash Bros. Invitational

2014 will see the arrival of not one, but two new Super Smash Bros. games: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. To commemorate this occasion, Nintendo is inviting 16 highly skilled Super Smash Bros. players to the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles to compete in a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament. Thousands of fans in the audience and countless more watching a live stream online will see new Super Smash Bros. characters clash with existing favorites in action for the first time. More important than declaring a winner, however, this event is a celebration of all things Super Smash Bros., and a great way for new and veteran fans to take part in a tribute to this legendary franchise. More information about the 16 invited participants in the tournament, the identity of the announcers, and how fans of the franchise can view the tournament in person and via webcast, will be communicated shortly.
Nintendo Digital Event

Every year, Nintendo looks for the best way to show its games and share its news with fans, media and other key audiences. In 2013, Nintendo decided to forgo a traditional press conference and use a video – in that case a Nintendo Direct – to share its news from E3. The company is building on that approach at E3 2014 with the “Nintendo Digital Event,” a new kind of video program that will reveal and provide further detail about the gaming experiences on the way for Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond. The Nintendo Digital Event will air at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 10.
Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3

This year, Nintendo will offer fans a deeper look at Nintendo’s biggest games of E3, with information directly from the source. The “Treehouse,” the Product Development department at Nintendo of America, will provide in-depth game demos live and unscripted from Nintendo’s booth. This new program will be live streamed during all hours of the E3 show. Fans can get settled in, open their browsers and experience the Nintendo games at E3 like never before.
Super Smash Bros. Smash Fest @ Best Buy

In 2013, Nintendo broke new ground by expanding its E3 activities outside of the walls of the Los Angeles Convention Center and letting fans play some of the games being played on the show floor at participating Best Buy stores. The partnership between Nintendo and Best Buy continues in 2014 and will mark the first time around the world that fans have had the opportunity to get their hands on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
More details about each event, including dates, times, locations and game content will be revealed shortly. To follow all of Nintendo’s E3 activities, keep an eye on Nintendo’s Facebook page, Twitter feed and YouTube channel. Or visit http://e3.nintendo.com.



I think playing Smash Wii U at Best Buy is cool. The Nintendo Digital Event seems to be a bigger Nintendo Direct so Iwata will likely talk about upcoming games and the Quality of life thing in more detail.

It's a bit confusing, but I guess it sounds interesting. I guess that means basically a Nintendo Direct, with a different name. Razz I likely won't even play Smash Bros. Wii U at Best Buy, I'm looking forward to the game, but it's not something I really care to try out beforehand, since I know what's coming. (not much seems to be changing in the game as compared to previous Smash games, where tons of new additions were made to make it feel fresh)

I do hope that there are some big announcements made too. That why I always look forward to Nintendo's E3. And the others too, but mostly Nintendo. XD

Here's an update about the Super Smash Bros.  Invitational.



More info here.

http://e3.nintendo.com/invitational/rules.html

I like how Nintendo is paying for 2 people to have an E3 trip and for 1 person to be part of the Invitational.

Hopefully my Best Buy is one of the locations. But I highly doubt it, and the lines would likely be way too large to really do that anyway. Razz

Also it looks you might be able to get something.

Best Buy Website wrote:Be one of the first 70 attendees at each event to pre-order Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U and receive a rare collectible Super Smash Bros. gold coin (one per customer, while supplies last). You will also get a $5 My Best Buy™ certificate when you pick up your fully paid game upon release.


Bring your Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS system to the event and play games like Kirby: Triple Deluxe or Mario Golf: World Tour with other fans.

I know I won't be getting the coin since I won;t be one of the first 70 in the door. I think I'm going to the Folsom one even if it is an hour away from me.

None of them are close to me of course. :/ There is one near where I'll be going when I go to New Jersey, but that will be shortly after this event. So that kind of sucks...

Cool that you're going Gameguy.

Have a look at Nintendo's booth in construction.



I wander if the 5400 means something?

Also here some more info coming from Miiverse.

Tom wrote:    Hi there, Tom at Nintendo here at the Nintendo of America office.

   Are you ready for E3?

   All week, we've been busy with a lot of Miiverse and Wii U updates, but now I'm putting on my E3 hat!

   If you aren't aware, here's what's going down in the next week:

   Just now - as you can see the E3 2014 Community is now live! The main community if for everyone who can post to Miiverse to share their thoughts and excitement about our announcements. We also opened this announcement community, and as the name suggests, we'll be posting game news, videos and events as they're about to happen from now throughout the show.

   Next Tuesday 6/10 at 9am PT / 12pm ET, we will be broadcasting our Digital Event video where we will be breaking news about our latest games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

   Immediately after, there will be the live post-show Nintendo Minute: Live@E3 where the hosts will recap the Digital Event with even more info.

   From 4pm also on 6/10, we will be hosting the Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament. The event will be live streamed on our Twitch channel.

   If that's not enough, all E3 long we'll have Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 where we will be live streaming right from the show floor, to go in-depth about our latest games.

   You can watch all of this on our Twitch and YouTube channel, and of course and e3.nintendo.com.

   To help you get in the mood, check out e3.nintendo.com. The link's at the bottom of this post for web users, or click on the blue globe icon for Wii U/3DS users!


https://miiverse.nintendo.net/titles/14866558073299627563

I'm not sure what to think about this since Nintendo Minute will likely means that the Digital Event is less then an hour and I'm going to stay clear of the E3 Miiverse page.

Also I think someone is making a comeback at E3.

I doubt the 5400 means anything significant, it's probably just something they're using for construction. I think it's cool that they added a Miiverse community for E3, and they're Digital Event is only 5 days away. O_O It came really quickly.
