Last week Nintendo revealed that their upcoming Zelda game for both the Wii U and the Nintendo NX, would be the only game playable on the show floor. This left us wondering what Nintendo had up their sleeves for their E3 broadcast this year… turns out, it’s all about Zelda too.
On Tuesday, June 14, rather than revealing information about upcoming games as well as announcing new titles, Nintendo is putting all of their eggs in one Zelda shaped basket as that’ll be the only game they’ll be showing and talking about this year.
Nintendo’s kickoff to the E3 show happens at 9 a.m. PT Tuesday, June 14, when Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime introduces Nintendo Treehouse: Live, which will be dedicated to a day of live-streamed gameplay of The Legend of Zelda. This will be the world’s first in-depth look at the game, which will also include commentaries by Nintendo developers. The Legend of Zelda gameplay will be streamed from the E3 show floor via Nintendo’s channels on YouTube and Twitch, as well as on http://e3.nintendo.com. The stream will include game coverage, behind-the-scenes info and plenty of fun.
Nintendo has always held some sort of broadcast on Tuesday, and have always impressed by revealing a ton of new games for the year ahead, this time however, it’s not looking like that’s the case.
Here’s hoping Zelda is worth it.
