With the current shift in leadership at Nintendo, the usual fiscal year end revenue results round up, and plenty of new games on the way, the next big thing on Nintendo’s plate–E3. According to a translated document of today’s financial result briefing, listed by Cheesemeister3K on Twitter, Satoru Iwata said,
\”…at the E3 show this year, we are planning to host a few smaller events that are specifically focused on our software lineup for the U.S. market. There will be one closed event for American distributors, and we will hold another closed hands-on experience event, for mainly the Western gaming media\”
Unlike their competitors, Nintendo will have no major artillery such as another secret console or handheld, but will keep doing what they do best–focus on the games. It’s been an ongoing argument between Nintendo fan boys and anti-Nintendo boys with statements about how the graphics, sound, and controls or blood, guts, and gore are what matter, while others say its all about the experience and fun you have while playing the game and what you take away from that experience.
On the international side of things, Iwata said Nintendo will continue to use a communication tool such as Nintendo Direct to deliver information to players in Japan, and will mainly focus on games that are coming only to Japan. He said Nintendo will also use that same approach in communicating to fans in other countries as well.
Even with a low key showing the Big \’N\’ will have quite a bit of exciting things to show such as a new Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros., and more.
