In what could be the biggest shake up in terms of E3 history, Nintendo announced that they have teamed up with Best Buy to bring select E3 demos to Best Buy stores in North America and Canada this June.
The stores will feature demos of both Wii U and 3DS games. Nintendo did something like this for the Wii U in December of last year and I was able to try the system then which influenced me to buy a basic system and a copy of Zombi U. This year Nintendo has forgone E3 and is instead bringing everything to the public with Nintendo Direct and now this. Nintendo seems more interested in listening to the response of the people than trying to make money and although they lost money this year it seems like the old days of the gamer comes first might be coming back.
E3 will be June 11-13. Xbox will have it’s conference on June 10th along with Sony. Nintendo stated they will have a Nintendo Direct around this time.
Today, Nintendo announced on Nintendo Direct that the latest Sonic game Sonic: Lost World will be exclusive to Nintendo Consoles.
this is good news to people like me since if you ever played a Sonic game in the last 10 years the trend seems to be the best games are on Nintendo Consoles. Sonic Advance, Sonic: Dark BrotherHood, Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations 3DS version, Sonic Rush. Anything cross platform: Sonic Unleashed, Sonic 2006, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Generations seems to be way below quality. Let’s hope this keeps the trend of great Sonic games on Nintendo when the game is released.

It was not stated when this will take place, however if You have Nintendo videos on Your channel, expect to see ads for Nintendo Related games, projects and partners soon.

Nintendo has decided to skip having a E3 presentation this year since they seem to be having huge success with Nintendo Direct and will host smaller events at E3 this year and I think that is a good idea. Let’s think about all the games announced this year via Nintendo Direct.
New 3DS Zelda game
a new project from Monolith Soft
Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem
Virtual Console deals
This strategy seems to be working and I hope it gets better in the future.
When you mention EarthBound to anyone you get joy filling their eyes. As you know, last week Nintendo announced they will be putting EarthBound on the Wii U virtual Console. Clyde Mandelin, The head translator of a Mother 3 translation group stated that he would gladly give his notes to Nintendo stating that he would make whatever changes needed to the script free of charge.
Now this is dedication. If you are willing to do a job for free just so others can enjoy something great. Clyde Mandelin has many years as a translator.
EarthBound will be released by Nintendo on the Wii U Virtual Console later this year.
Today, Bethesda anounced through IGN that they will be releasing The Evil Within, a game developed by Tango Gameworks under the eyes of Shinji Mikami, the man behind such horror classics as the Famicom game Sweet Home and the classic Resident Evil (BioHazard) Series.

The game is being planned for a 2014 release on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and next gen consoles.

Apparently there was a wave 1 that no one told me about.
This wave has among it’s cast Eevee, Mewtwo, Croagunk, Zoroark, Litwick and Genesect. It will make use of NFC technology to interact with the Wii U gamepad. The secnond shot seems to be an amalgamation of screenshots showing off the game itself, also if you listen carefully enough, you can hear parents wallets crying out in terror of another game like Skylanders.
Pokemon Rumble U will be released by Nintendo on April 24th in Japan for the Nintendo Wii U. No international dates have been announced.
