E3 2010 – Nintendo press conference live!

Tuesday, 15th June 2010 12:00 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Have you got a shelter built? Have you dug a hole? Because today is serious, son.

Nintendo’s up first today after Microsoft’s E3 showing last night, with Sony to follow soon afterwards. But undoubtedly, this is the most important conference in this year’s show, as well as one of the most important within the past five years.

How so? Two very specific reasons.

One – 3DS: We finally get to see what the handheld looks like later today after months of speculation, and is the first big hardware reveal out of the big three since E3 2005, as well as Nintendo’s first massive hardware reveal since 2004 with the original DS.

Nintendo’s promise of 3D gaming without glasses does sound like a pipe dream, but there is potential for it nonetheless. EA CEO John Riccitello has already said he thinks the tech is “cool”. You can not get a bigger thumbs up than that.

We may even hear confirmation of the previously rumoured release date of October, as well as the possible first sightings of Animal Crossing 3DS and Level 5′s Time Travelers, which seems like it will support the console, according to past hints.

Two – Zelda: Twilight Princess was all well and good for appearing on Wii, but it was just a port of the GameCube version. Today will bring the first showing of a brand new, and true, Zelda Wii title.

What do we know so far of it? Other than the piece of art shown by Shigeru Miyamoto last year and that it’s a WiiMotionPlus exclusive, absolutely nothing. Unofficially? There might be this.

Hopefully we’ll get confirmation of a release this year as well. Be sure to produce something like this for a crowd reaction anyways, Nintendo.

There’s also a whole lot more that we don’t know about so far, but those are the big two. Whatever you do, keeps those eyes glued to the screen just for those two things.

Pat and Nathan will be there for us with a liveblog, naturally. Needless to say, you won’t miss a beat with us. It all begins at 9am PST/5pm BST/6pm CET.

    I hope it will be decent… Not like Microsoft’s and Ubisoft’s disaster.

    EA was shockingly had very good presentation. Games for everyone without stupid jokes and stupid shit stuff.

    Expecting Zelda of course and very curious about that 3DS. Aside from that i don’t think much surprises will come.

    @2 agreed. I read the reaction across forums, ignorning the fanboy garbage there is a lot of dissapointment from xbox players about their conference and a lot of negative reactions from articles on various websites, they had no games for 2011 apart from gears and crytek project, thats pretty weak. I suspect one of the main reasons gamers watch these things is for stuff coming in the next year or so – microsoft failed to deliver imo.

    looking forward to nintendo and sonys stuff

    Genuinely interested to see the 3DS. For the existing platforms it’s all about the Zelda. The success or not of the conference for me will be directly related to that.

    “But undoubtedly, this is the most important conference in this year’s show”.
    I really don’t think so, the interest for 3ds is really huge and justified, but i don’ t think that this conference is the most important of the last years.

    I haven’t been interested in a Nintendo show in years, and haven’t bought a Ninty device in years either. This should be good.

  9. AHA-Lambda

    @8 – agreed and yet this will probly be better than MS’

    “But undoubtedly, this is the most important conference in this year’s show, as well as one of the most important within the past five years.”

    3DS? Yes I agree
    Zelda? No

    @9 EA’s was better than Microsoft’s with just the first game! :D

    “But undoubtedly, this is the most important conference in this year’s show, as well as one of the most important within the past five years.”

    Hardly, if you ask me. Yes, there is excitement for the things you mention but it’s nowhere near the most important press conference of the past five years. In my opinion, of course.

    Let’s face, Nintendo’s show is probably going to be crap, it was last year and the year before.

    Sure we’ll get 3DS and hopefully the new Zelda, but we’ll then probably have to sit through embarrassing scenes of people jumping around pretending to have fun playing casual shit.

    I think Microsoft’s conference actually started off really well with MGS Rising and Gears 3. It only went off the rails when they rolled out the Kinect stuff. I was shocked that all they had to end on was the re-designed console, no surprise game announcements or anything. So overall it was a letdown, and I expect Nintendo to be similar.

    #12 4 years ago
  13. Filofax

    I’m in the same boat as Blerk regarding Nintendo’s conference, 3DS could be cool but that depends on price.

    Wondering how long Nintendo will recycle Mario and Zelda. Don’t get me wrong ! I loved the games on NES, SNES and N64, but after nearly 30 years ,i just can’t hear the name mario anymore.

    instead of making new games, they’re coming up with this casual trash. yeah great :(
    nintendo is digging its own grave and we’re the witnesses. casual games are the most unpredictable customers. for most of them gaming is something like a trend. they don’t know vg247. they read reviews at amazon,… . they’re not “loyal” to videogames.

    sidenote: Nintendo is getting way to sexist! Wiifit just an example. Don’t got a problem with that, but here in Europe their ads and commercials are primarily targeted at females . males are portrayed in a bad and idiotic way. women always win, men and boys are too dumb for wiifit ,women and girls get special prices and challenges.

    If i would be a young boy today, i definitely wouldn’t buy a nintendo console today.

    Nintendo forget where they came from and who made them.

    OK, seriously now. Can people start putting the fucking starting times in GMT?

    EDIT: Oh wait. BST = British Standard Time, right? When did that happen?

    ‘British summer time’ actually, i found out the other day. apparently there’s no such thing as British Standard Time :/

    just check the count downs innit:

    @14
    The day they Make a Zelda with Uncharted 2 and Crysis level of graphics is the day i will die from over working my heart with pure excitement. The same would go for a Mario Galaxy type Mario game in the same level of graphics. Of course if the addictive gameplay is still intact and there is a good story for Zelda (Mario games dont have stories really).

    @Bulk Slash: IIRC last year wasn’t very good from Nintendo but they had a strong show the previous year.

    @exite: “If i would be a young boy today, i definitely wouldn’t buy a nintendo console today.

    Nintendo forget where they came from and who made them.”

    Nintendo haven’t forgotten and that’s why we have new Mario and Zelda games that still appeal to young boys. What do other developers have on offer that are of better quality and age appropriate?

    I think it’s you who has forgotten where they came from and what made them. Your tastes have changed from when you were younger and Nintendo haven’t changed with you.

    Don’t really care much about Nintendo in terms of their games, but you’ve simply got to pay attention for the fact that they’re trend-setters and that they partly define the agenda for technological developments in the industry.

    #24 4 years ago
  25. exite

    @19 “Nintendo forget where they came from and who made them”

    this wasn’t aimed at Mario or Zelda, but at the casual gaming and their attitude in marketing concerning boys. :P

    trust me i loved super mario bros on the wii, but its just like good movie,that you’ve watched to often. it gets boring ! they shouldn’t rely only on mario, zelda or metroid ! what happened to star fox ? they destroyed it ! rare was bought by microsoft and transformed into a casual gaming studio. hate them for that ! final fantasy left nintendo years ago , cause nintendo didn’t innovate! third party publishers start to avoid the wii because the casual gamers, the target audience of today, don’t want that stuff. the last e3 press conferences showed that nintendo forgot who they are and who made them !

    Today Nintendo is JUST Mario, Zelda, Metroid and Casual Stuff. Thats the Problem! Thats the Forgetting ( bad english) Where’s the Innovation ( please don’t mention the vitality sensor now)? Where are new Franchises ? They won’t bring US anything really new. Where’s Pikmin? That was something new. I want to feel the Nintendo feeling again with something new and not just a game with mario in it in a new environment. How many times do we have to fight Bowser or Ganondorf ?

    Its like Pixar would bring out a “new” movie every year with a different style and better graphics but always the same story and foes.

    But the Press Conference starts now and i’ll watch it. hopefully they changed their mind a bit and show some games. :D

    Shouldn’t use those big screens like that. Adds so much lag.

    That said, the motion detection just aint working.

    #42 4 years ago
  43. G1GAHURTZ

    Well, they’ve made sword swinging angle integral to the gameplay, so using a classic controller doesn’t seem a likely option.

    #43 4 years ago
  44. G1GAHURTZ

    Myamoto is really bad at gaming anyway.

    Doesn’t seem like a good idea to get him to demo it…

    Looks like the same level visuals as the PSP.

    #124 4 years ago

    Well, that’s one myth debunked.

    Graphics are nowhere near 360/PS3 standard.

    #125 4 years ago

    Kid icarus looks better than Zelda or that Mickey game

    #126 4 years ago

    It does lol. They made more of a show out of it to.

    #127 4 years ago
  128. SunKing

    Kid Icarus looks cheesy as hell. Good graphics, not really seeing the 3D, but obviously I didn’t really expect I would. Very interested in hands-on impressions, though.

    #128 4 years ago
  129. zoopdeloop

    3ds is impressive…the same level of visuals with Psp though.was expecting a little bit more

    I saw/heard a whole lot of yapping, and not really much to back it up. I think it’s time I just got over my love for Nintendo. They are strictly for kids and casual gamers.. I need to accept that :( .. man what I would do for a more adult Zelda or just games that didn’t look 5 years old. Ah well…

    #137 4 years ago
  138. zoopdeloop

    I can already see it a lot of devs getting back to their old partnership (continuing their franchises) with Nintendo.Just like the old days.

    Hmm, time will tell about 3DS. Not overly impressed yet.

    Otherwise though Nintendo have done a bloody good job. An impressive list of games coming out :)

    “multiple game playstations” Playstations?! :D

    That wasnt to bad really, the Wii games looked weak and well, so did the DS ones… Wait, what was i saying again? Oh yeah, 3DS.

    wow i cant believe i’m saying this as a nonnintendo fan but they have won this e3 by a mile they definitely have!

    Pretty good range of titles, I think. The 3DS looks cool and obviously has a lot of support from devs. Nothing in there I really care about, but that’s no reflection on them.

    So what will it be guys

    1-10 ratings if you shall!

    hum, honnestly the 3DS sounds impressive shame its impossible to show off. Also one game?

    I wouldnt really say they’ve ‘won’ with the actual games they shown looking pretty poor. But it was better then what we got yesterday.

    Your ON CRACK!!! There was nothing in the keynote that even got me excited.. except the personal 3D woman to follow you around.. it was sooooo mediocre it’s not funny… sad Keynote or mediocrity. Showing out of date games.. but ok for kids I guess

    MS gives away free 360s.
    Nintendo pimps out women.

    What’s Sony got for the audience? :D

    i thought it was total meh until i saw that 3rd party 3ds lineup. I am interested

    Wait? No date or price!??! O_O

    #154 4 years ago
  155. Gekidami

    Yeah thats the main problem with everything they showed; It all kiddy-grade stuff.

    #155 4 years ago
  156. Filofax

    I take it they did not announce a price and release date for 3DS yet.

    #156 4 years ago
  157. MushroomStamp

    I have ZERO interest in Handhelds, so this keynote was huge fail for me. My wii will continue to sit in the corner collecting dust.

  158. Gekidami

    @156
    Yep and they only showed one game which honnestly didnt look to great. But the future line-up is stunning. Shame its only paper for now.

    8.5/10 for me. Lots of stuff going on. Would have been a 9.5 but Reggies yapping about units sold was stupid. He seemed to have been trying to put himself at ease knowing PS3, 360, and iStuff is on Nintendos back.

    #159 4 years ago
  160. Anders

    Probably a 9 for me. Loved it. Very few low points.

    #160 4 years ago
  161. AHA-Lambda

    why was there no date or price for 3ds?

    also no wii vitality sensor XD

    #161 4 years ago
  162. DaMan

    very impressive selection of games for 3ds, aside from that Kid Icarus. Epic Mickey looks awesome as well.

    #162 4 years ago
  163. justiceblob

    6/10 – same as yesterday. probably because I dont have a Wii, and I have no interest in handhelds. Kirby – 11/10 though, that shit was amazing.

    #163 4 years ago
  164. cookiejar

    @153, Gran Turismo 5? :D

    #164 4 years ago
  165. AHA-Lambda

    i would say it was decent overall

    it was majority wise crap but i think the 3DS stuff at the end could really come together. MGS and resi alone made me excited O_O

    #165 4 years ago
  166. Gekidami

    6/10 for me. Only Kirby looked good and they didnt show enought of the 3DS to impress me but the idea and names written on that screen are looking good. Everything else was ‘same old same old’ really.

    #166 4 years ago
  167. spiderLAW

    I dont see whats wrong with this.
    Zelda looked amaizing and it sounds fun. Cant count the interference as a bad thing. It looks promising and im sure it will deliver.
    Metroid the Other M is old news but it looked great.
    Epic Mickey sounds like a good break away from the normal action that goes on with the PS3 and 360.
    The 3DS tech sounds like lots of fun to be had.

    Listen, none of this stuff was Epic at all but the way i look at it, its casual for the core gamer and not just casual gamers. There’s fun to be had with all that had been shown. I like to leave the Epics with MS and Sony and leave Nintendo with the whole break from the norm scene.

    #167 4 years ago
  168. MushroomStamp

    5/10 for me. NO interest in handhelds, and the Wii games are looking very DATED, with no games targeted for people over 10. Zelda looked bad with all kinds of technical issues and huge ugly invisible controller on the screen. Mickey looked like Mario Sunshine which got old FAST. Metroid… meh. Kirby looks like it’s for a 8 yr old girl. Kid Icarus looked good but it’s for a handheld so no go there.

    There was nothing in this show for me.

    #168 4 years ago
  169. Gadzooks!

    Ninty have won E3 by a pretty massive margin. MGS, Resi, Zelda, DK, Goldeneye, Epic Mickey. They hold all the cards right now.

  170. theevilaires

    What about that whole wifi interference thing? That was the highlight for me. I wonder if someone from the M$ or SONY camp tried to sabotage the show out of fanboy rage :D

    #170 4 years ago
  171. theevilaires

    Gadzooks you are a fucking idiot and XBOT by saying that while not even seeing SONY’s show yet you moron. Say so far yet before making statements like that you noob.

    I’m sure Nintendo will be pretty happy with what they presented. I would. Anyways, it was certainly better than Microsoft’s conference.

    #172 4 years ago
  173. Blerk

    That was a stonking show from them as far as I’m concerned. Announcement after announcement after announcement, new thing, new thing, new thing. Exactly what I wanted from Microsoft but didn’t get. Well, who’d have thunk it?

    True, I probably won’t pick up many of those titles. But for the Nintendo fan, it’s hard to imagine a much better show, no?

    #173 4 years ago
  174. DaMan

    very impressive really, 8/10. I would give a 9 if it wasn’t for the Kid Icarus disaster :)

    #174 4 years ago
  175. moon

    8/10 here. Some damn good games listed.
    But no mention of vitality sensor?
