Nintendo suplantará nuevamente su conferencia de la E3 por un evento en línea

Browse By


Al igual que el año pasado, Nintendo está buscando entablar una línea más directa con su comunidad para los anuncios que realizará durante la E3 de este año, expo que está limitada a medios y gente de la industria de los videojuegos. 

Este año en vez de realizar un Nintendo Direct, la compañía recurrirá a un nuevo formato llamado Nintendo Digital Event, al cual definen como un nuevo programa de video desde el cual develarán las nuevas experiencias que tienen planeadas para el 2014 y más allá. Nintendo Digital Event será transmitido el 10 de junio a las 11 a.m. CDT. También realizarán transmisiones en vivo desde su booth en la expo, mostrando demos de los nuevos títulos a lo largo de los tres días de la E3.

La empresa nipona realizará también un torneo llamado Super Smash Bros. Invitational, para celebrar el lanzamiento de la nueva entrega de su título de peleas en Wii U y 3DS. Nintendo invitará a 16 jugadores al Nokia Theatre de Los Angeles — lugar donde solía realizar sus conferencias de la E3 — para competir en el torneo de Super Smash Bros. en Wii U, el cual será transmitido en vivo en Internet. Los detalles de la fecha, horarios y participantes, serán dados a conocer en breve.

Nintendo preparó un video para dar a conocer las dinámicas que realizarán en el marco de la E3 2014, en el que definitivamente pusieron a trabajar a los guionistas de las conferencias de antaño.

Super Smash Bros. Tournament Highlights Nintendo’s E3 Approach

REDMOND, Wash., April 29, 2014 – Over the last few years, Nintendo has repeatedly reinvented its approach to E3 by creating unique ways to break news and get fans at home involved in the fun, while also offering great experiences for on-site attendees. That mission continues in 2014 as Nintendo offers a series of new channels to communicate news directly to its key audiences, including fans, media, analysts, investors and business partners. This includes a new format for unveiling news: the Nintendo Digital Event; a Super Smash Bros. tournament; a full slate of live, in-depth game demos from the Nintendo booth; and an opportunity for fans to play Super Smash Bros. for Wii U for the first time at their local Best Buy.

“We demonstrated last year that we are never afraid to reinvent a proven tactic or to break completely new ground if we believe it will provide the best experience for our fans, followers and partners,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s president and chief operating officer. “So, whether you’re attending E3 in person or joining online, there’s an amazing lineup of games, experiences and events coming your way.”

At E3 2014, Nintendo will offer four unique experiences, all under the unifying banner of “Play Nintendo.”

Super Smash Bros. Invitational

  • 2014 will see the arrival of not one, but two new Super Smash Bros. games: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. To commemorate this occasion, Nintendo is inviting 16 highly skilled Super Smash Bros. players to the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles to compete in a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament. Thousands of fans in the audience and countless more watching a live stream online will see new Super Smash Bros. characters clash with existing favorites in action for the first time. More important than declaring a winner, however, this event is a celebration of all things Super Smash Bros., and a great way for new and veteran fans to take part in a tribute to this legendary franchise. More information about the 16 invited participants in the tournament, the identity of the announcers, and how fans of the franchise can view the tournament in person and via webcast, will be communicated shortly.

Nintendo Digital Event

  • Every year, Nintendo looks for the best way to show its games and share its news with fans, media and other key audiences. In 2013, Nintendo decided to forgo a traditional press conference and use a video – in that case a Nintendo Direct – to share its news from E3. The company is building on that approach at E3 2014 with the “Nintendo Digital Event,” a new kind of video program that will reveal and provide further detail about the gaming experiences on the way for Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond. The Nintendo Digital Event will air at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 10.

Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3

  • This year, Nintendo will offer fans a deeper look at Nintendo’s biggest games of E3, with information directly from the source. The “Treehouse,” the Product Development department at Nintendo of America, will provide in-depth game demos live and unscripted from Nintendo’s booth. This new program will be live streamed during all hours of the E3 show. Fans can get settled in, open their browsers and experience the Nintendo games at E3 like never before.

Super Smash Bros. Smash Fest @ Best Buy

  • In 2013, Nintendo broke new ground by expanding its E3 activities outside of the walls of the Los Angeles Convention Center and letting fans play some of the games being played on the show floor at participating Best Buy stores. The partnership between Nintendo and Best Buy continues in 2014 and will mark the first time around the world that fans have had the opportunity to get their hands on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

More details about each event, including dates, times, locations and game content will be revealed shortly. To follow all of Nintendo’s E3 activities, keep an eye on Nintendo’s Facebook page, Twitter feed and YouTube channel.
