Nintendo Announces Its E3 2015 Plans

Nintendo’s expanded lineup at this year’s E3 includes the glorious return of the Nintendo World Championships after a 25-year absence, a new Nintendo Digital Event on June 16 at 9 a.m. PT, the always in-depth Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 from the show floor and a chance to play Mario Maker at more than 120 Best Buy locations. The big N showcased the video above announcing their plans for this year’s E3. Nintendo decided to go the route that they did last year and forego a traditional press conference. Although we are a little disappointed regarding the news (those Nintendo press conferences always had something special), we were very happy with last year’s digital event and it will be fun to see what they have for us this year.

E3 2015 takes place next month and we will be covering the entire event. Stay tuned.

Nintendo To Reveal E3 2015 Plans Tomorrow

Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 5.51.20 PM

Mark your calendars Nintendo fans; the big N is set to reveal their official E3 2015 plans tomorrow, May 13th. Nintendo of America has tweeted that their E3 plans will be revealed at 9am PT tomorrow so you can bet your bottom dollar we will be on the look out. Last year Nintendo decided to skip the traditional press conference in favor of a fun Nintendo Direct followed by a constant live stream throughout the event. While it was fun and very well done, we kind of hope that they have a traditional press conference next month as it ads to the excitement.

What do you guys hope Nintendo does for E3 2015?

Another Update Hits 3DS

Nintendo has begun rolling out another minor system update for Nintendo 3DS. Available now, version 9.7.0-25U adds further improvements to overall system stability and implements other minor adjustments to enhance the user experience. By this update we would imagine that the Nintendo 3DS is BEYOND stable and we can’t understand how much more stable it can get.

Monster Hunter: Stories Announced For Nintendo 3DS

Capcom has announced that they are making an all new, colorful Monster Hunter title called Monster Hunter: Stories. Monster Hunter: Stories is headed to the Nintendo 3DS sometime in 2016. The game looks pretty sweet in this opening trailer and the franchise has found a great home in the Nintendo 3DS.
