The Big N Teams With Mega 64 To Announce Nintendo @ E3 2014!

The hilarious team over at Mega 64 have teamed up with Nintendo to announce the Big N's plan for E3 2014. Unlike past years which have often been shrouded in secrecy, Nintendo is coming out swinging with a wide variety of events both on and off the showroom floor. The event is being billed as the Nintendo Digital Event and is scheduled to kick off June 10, 2014 where fans can expect to hear about new games for both 3DS & Wii U. Super Smash Bros. will be a major focus of the show and much like last years show, Nintendo is moving away from a traditional stage show in favor of a more personal and internet friendly showcase of their newest stuff. Here is the current breakdown of what to expect:
  • Super Smash Bros. Invitational - Nintendo will be hosting a Smash Bros. invitational tournament to show off their latest installment of the popular fighting series to both the public and tournament community. This is a first for the company and backs up previous statements that Nintendo hopes for the newest Smash Bros. to enter the tournament fighting scene.
  • Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy - Much like last year, Nintendo is teaming with Best Buy to allow players who can't go to E3 to experience the new game during the show. This means you'll be able to hit a local Best Buy and experience the game (and possibly others) at the same time the press does. Expect Best Buy to release a schedule of which stores will feature playable Super Smash Bros. shortly before E3 kicks off.
  • Nintendo Treehouse Live @ E3 - For those who don't know, the Nintendo Treehouse is a top secret division of the company which houses the latest and most secret projects the company works on. At this years show, the Treehouse team will feature constant daily live streams from E3 to showcase their latest games. If there is any news on a new Star Fox, Metroid or even a new franchise, this will be where it is revealed.
The whole video was pretty funny and shows a whole new side of Nintendo who is willing to actually tease their E3 show in a major way. Considering that E3 is coming shortly after the release of Mario Kart 8 (May 30) which is their most important Wii U title, expect Nintendo to build on that momentum and showcase some big titles. While we know the current big titles like X, Bayonetta 2 and Super Smash Bros., it's the unknown that has fans drooling at the possibilities. Enjoy and please comment below on what you want to see most at the show!
