As stated this is the first Nintendo Direct since the passing of Satoru Iwata President and CEO of Nintendo. This Nintendo Direct marks off the end of this year and the first half of next year with a strong and health lineup of new games, sequels, remakes, amiibos and surprises. Love them or hate them, there’s something here for everyone.
Last year, Nintendo chose to forgo The the typical press conference at E3 and chose to have an extended live stream and playable demos of their hottest games. This year Nintendo brought something special back. The Nintendo World Championship was a tournament held in 1990 the United States. Contestants competed in various Nintendo games for the ultimate prize and title of Nintendo “World” Champion. This tournament is most likely remembered as producing the rarest NES cartridge, a custom cartridge made specifically for the finals. 25 years later Nintendo revived the tournament for E3 2015.
