Nintendo will transform its booth at this year’s E3 to immerse fans in the world of the new Legend of Zelda game for the Wii U console.
Nintendo stated that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U would be the only game featured during their E3 event. Nintendo recently updated their E3 2016 site, and reconfirmed this focus. Nintendo @ E3 starts at 9 a.m. PTD on Tuesday, June 14. Tune in starting at 9 a.m. PT for the world’s first in-depth look at the new Legend of Zelda game. The day’s events will kick off with live streamed gameplay and behind-the-scenes info from the game experts of Nintendo Treehouse — live and unscripted from the show floor.
The upcoming Legend of Zelda game will be a cross-platform title for both the NX and the Wii U, although only the latter version will be on show at E3 2016.
“Nintendo changes its approach to the E3 show every year,” the company said in a statement. “This June, Nintendo will focus its attention on the upcoming game in The Legend of Zelda series. The Wii U version of the game will be playable for the first time on the E3 show floor, and it will be the only playable game Nintendo presents at the show in order to provide attendees a complete immersion. Additional information about Nintendo’s E3 plans will be announced in the future.”
While it makes sense not to show the NX version of Zelda until that console’s public debut, people will be understandably interested to know what the next-gen version of the game looks and plays like. We’ll hopefully be able to squeeze some information out of a representative during the expo.
