Watch Nintendo's Ridiculous E3 Video

Nintendo partnered up with the hilarious folks at Mega64 for this E3 prep video, which is silly and amazing. If you don't have time to watch it all, here's the Cliffnotes version.

  • A Smash Bros. tournament in Los Angeles during E3.
  • Other Smash Bros. tournaments at Best Buys throughout the United States.
  • Live-streaming by the Nintendo Treehouse people during the show.
  • A "Nintendo Digital Event" at 9am PT on Tuesday, June 10.

As for that last one... well, from Nintendo's press release:

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.

In other words, sounds like they're not doing a press conference this year. Sad.


    I want ninty to announce lens cleaner HD for Wii U!!!

    No press conference? Meh, we'll still get the news and that is what it's all about. Getting a look at the new games!

    Every year I get my hopes up, every year I am disappointed.

    Probably do the same thing this year too.

    If there's no Zelda the Wii U is dead dead dead.

      There will be a new Zelda for the Wii U announced, you would do well to do your research.

        err, I was just stating if there wasn't that would be the case, not that it wasn't going to happen. I would rather be surprised by the presentation than read spoilers before hand.

    Wait... wait....

    is Nintendo acknowledging competitive smash?


    also, i can't believe nintendo went to mega 64 for the video, they are literally the opposite to all the family values the strive for... i'm seriously impressed right now.

    This is actually better than Nonspecific Action Figure :O
