Nintendo America president Reggie Fils-Aimé spoke to Fox News in their Fox Gamer segment and stated that E3 is going to be a big deal for Nintendo this year. There are so many things about that sentence I never thought I’d say.
After gently explaining to the people of Fox News what Nintendo is, Reggie switches gears to talk about E3 like Fox’s audience knows what it is already. In this, he states that:
“E3 is always a big time for Nintendo. We look at each E3 as a unique opportunity to tell our story. And we’re gonna have a big E3 this year. We’re going to be showcasing a variety of games. We will have experiences for… consumers will be able to attend the show for the very first time. So I’m not gonna tell you all of the various games and all of our little secrets for E3, but I can tell you that E3 is going to be a major opportunity for us to showcase not only Nintendo Switch, but also content coming to Nintendo 3DS.”
Reggie actually hyped E3 for Nintendo. It’s rare indeed for it to happen at all, so we’re taking it as a hint to expect great things from Nintendo.
We should take this with a grain of salt, however, because in the next breath, Reggie tries to slip in the 3DS like it’s a juicy leak. I know Nintendo is trying not to kill the 3DS by coming out with the Switch, but I’m not sure that’s going to work out.
What big things do you think Nintendo will bring to E3? Do you think the 3DS is worth hyping over the Switch? Let us know in the comments below!
