What an interesting few hours it“s been for Nintendo fans. At about 11 AM ET this morning, Bill Trinen tweeted â€œnothing lasts for everâ€ and changed his bio to â€œUsed to work for Nintendoâ€. Almost the entire Internet bought it, and for a few fleeting minutes before he tweeted this, we“d all thought Bill actually left Nintendo.
As it turns out, it was a mistake. Time zones. This should help explain a thing or two, as well as highlight what I“m about to say:
Like last year, Nintendo will be broadcasting a Digital Event during E3. It“s set to air on Tuesday, June 16th at 9 AM PT, 12 PM ET. Also during E3, â€œNintendo Treehouse Liveâ€ returns. They“ve promised even more games and developers than last year. Mario Maker will be playable at select Best Buy locations from June 17th through 21st, as well.
But perhaps the biggest piece of news to come out of this â€œNintendo E3 hypeâ€ is the return of the Nintendo World Championships--not seen since 1990. Here“s more information from the Press Release that you won“t hear in the video above.
None of these â€œmajor citiesâ€ have been revealed yet. But as soon as I know, you“ll know. Man, the last time the Nintendo World Championship was a thing, I was a toddler. I“ve grown up hearing about it, of course. I am so stoked for its return!
What are you most excited about, from all these E3 plans for Nintendo? Be sure to let us know!
