Nintendo has changed its plan. It will no longer be The Legend of Zelda Wii U alone that will be shown in E3, four more games will be joining the game including Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. The latest development was announced in a press release June 2 morning.
Tech Times wrote that Nintendo will broadcast all the company’s news and reveals for two days through the Nintendo Treehouse event rather than the live-streamed press conference that it used to do in the past. The event starts on June 14th and will run through the 15th.
"Nintendo heads to E3 once again and brings the coverage directly to you with a two-day program from Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3! Tune in starting at 9 a.m. PT on June 14 for a day of live-streaming gameplay focused on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U and first live gameplay of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon that kicks off the program!
Day 2 of Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 will showcase upcoming releases for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, including Monster Hunter Generations, Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE! Day 2 will start with a special Pokémon GO developer Q&A at 10 a.m. PT on June 15."
According to Game Rant, Nintendo will have a demo booth on the show floor for The Legend of Zelda and the two-day Nintendo Treehouse live-stream featuring the following upcoming games:
- The Legend of Zelda Wii U
- Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon
- Monster Hunter Generations
- Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past
- Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE
This announcement is a welcome improvement to Nintendo’s previous plan of just focusing the E3 presentation on The Legend of Zelda Wii U. Although the publisher also announced previously that the game can be played earlier in their Nintendo Store in New York, the fans are still hoping that Nintendo will feature more upcoming titles in the E3 this June.
Let’s see if Nintendo will have additional changes on its E3 showings these coming days.
E3 2016 will begin June 14, Tuesday at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
