Nintendo is Bringing E3 to Everyone with Live Online Events
The 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is only a week away, and Nintendo wants to make sure you all have a front row seat this year for their part of the show. For the second year in a row, Nintendo is skipping out on a live press event. Instead, they will have four other types of live broadcasts.
Their main presentation will take place at 9 AM Pacific (12 PM Eastern) on e3.nintendo.com. Right after the event, they will have a live Nintendo Minute, recapping the event. Later that day, the big Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament will broadcast live on Nintendo’s Twitch channel. Speaking of their Twitch channel. That is the place to go throughout the entire three days of E3, where you will find live-stream viewing of game demos with members of Nintendo’s Treehouse.
On top of all this, NintendoFuse will once again have a physical presence at E3. Alex will be doing his best to get to every Nintendo game on the show floor, get some exclusive interviews, and share breaking news. To follow things up to the second, in addition to the blog, be sure to follow us on Twitter (@NintendoFuse).
