Hello, everyone! I'm going to publish this post a little bit early so it's all prepared for the Nintendo Direct @ E3 2013 event to start at 7:00AM PDT/10:00AM EDT. Not to mention, it lets me sleep in a little bit longer than I otherwise would. We'll be live blogging the entire event, but if you'd like to follow the Nintendo Direct yourself check out the stream on Nintendo's official website.
After Microsoft and Sony's showing yesterday Nintendo is going to have to knock it out of the park to even get a modicum of E3 respect this year. Luckily, they've got a secret weapon... or should I say a few? Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Star Fox, Donkey Kong and Yoshi just to name a few. We know Nintendo will likely be announcing a new 3D Mario title from the Super Mario Galaxy team, we've seen A Link to the Past 2, an know there are two Yoshi titles in the works. What's next? We'll see.
Keep in mind this Nintendo Direct event will be Wii U focused and the media will be playing most of the games shown just a few hours later. Expect hands-on impressions ASAP! Settle in, watch the stream, read the blog, and check out our chat over in the forums. That is, if you're not too busy with Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Talk to everyone in the morning!
