    Although Nintendo has not held a traditional press conference at E3 since 2012, for the last 3 years they have at least had a pre-filmed Nintendo Direct showing.

    Unfortunately, even that is not the case this year and they have recently announced that their only showing for E3 2016 will be in the form of a live-streamed Nintendo Treehouse event devoted entirely to the new The Legend of Zelda game for both Wii U and the forthcoming NX.

    The game will also be playable in some form at E3 so we can expect the game to be quite far along.

    The currently titled The Legend of Zelda for both Wii U and NX is due to release sometime in 2017.

    I hope this won't be the end for Nintendo Direct.

    That's a shame. :\
    At least we'll be getting new Zelda footage, yay!

    Very disappointing. I understood that their coverage would be focused on Zelda, but at least some coverage of other games would have been nice.

    rip e3 2016. The only thing I am looking forward to is... Nothing. I hate the idea of a ps4.5 I don't play xbox. For me this e3 is a helping of dissapointment. Heck, this means they're not showing any Pokemon Sun and Moon footage.

    Nintendo hasn't ruled out a Direct presentation at e3, just so far only treehouse is announced. We shouldn't jump to conclusions.

    I love zelda and all, but I was hoping for some NX footage (which was announced that it wont happen) and some other games (which now also won't happen)
    I never cared about Playstation's or XBOX's streams. I'll still be watching, but I'm not even hyped anymore.


    I hope you're right.

    If you have nothing to show, just don't come.

    Curious how this is going to turn out considering they already had issues previously with the Wii U

    (Slowly watches loading screen at event.)

    Edit:

    I'm curious if they will be showcasing the NX early somewhere in December, instead of 2017 :o.

    I don't like this massive hiding politic. It's just frustrating to the fans.
