Nintendo’s Stock Only Took a Small Hit After This Year’s E3

Following a lackluster E3 showing in their Digital Event, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear that Nintendo’s stock had dropped. However, it is surprising that their stock has only dropped by a marginal amount following a disappointing show. Following their E3 announcements, Nintendo’s stock has only dropped by about 0.6%; for some reason, Nintendo’s lackluster presentation isn’t seeming to have a major effect on investors. Perhaps they are still optimistic based on the mobile game and theme park announcements from earlier this year? Or, maybe they know about something that we don’t? Only time will tell.

​Iwata Admits that Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event Did Not Meet Expectations

It’s no surprise that many people were disappointed with Nintendo with regard to this year’s Digital Event at E3. Metroid Prime: Federation Force has already received 21,000 dislikes on its official trailer page on YouTube since it was posted earlier in the day; new Animal Crossing spin-offs and another handheld Zelda game have also received numerous criticisms since the Digital Event showed them off. These criticisms have not been ignored. Nintendo’s CEO, Satoru Iwata, posted an apologetic message on his Japanese Twitter page.

He stated that Nintendo took their fans’ criticisms and opinions seriously, and “will work to better meet [fans’] expectations.”

Do you think this apology is a smart move for Nintendo? Are they going to keep their word? Tell us your thoughts below!

Nintendo Shows Off a New Trailer for Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem

Earlier this year, Nintendo officially pulled the curtain on the mysterious Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. During Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event today, another trailer for the game was shown off. The trailer focuses mainly on the story of the game. However, not much about the story can be deciphered because the entire trailer is in Japanese at this point in time.

The trailer also sported the same flashy and stylized battles that we saw in the reveal trailer back in April, which is speculated to follow the turn-based RPG style gameplay of the Shin Megami Tensei franchise. Characters confirmed by the trailer to appear in the game include Chrom, Tsubasa Oribe, and Toma Akagi. Also, Avex Group will do the music and songs. Don’t forget to check back here for the trailer.

Donkey Kong and Bowser are Playable in Skylanders With New Crossover Amiibo

At their E3 Digital Event, Nintendo has revealed that Nintendo characters will be available to play on Skylanders SuperChargers through new crossover Amiibo. These Amiibo include Turbocharge Donkey Kong with the Barrel Blaster vehicle and Hammer Slam Bowser with the Clown Cruiser vehicle. In the game, DK can throw barrels and Bowser slams his hammer. Although this is a crossover, it was explained and showed in the gameplay that there are lots of homages to the characters’ histories.

These Amiibo can be placed on the portal to activate them as Skylanders, then you can turn the base to switch them to Amiibo. It was also revealed that the developers had wanted to use established versions of the characters, such as Giga Bowser, but were told to do something different that better suited Skylanders.

More information on these brand new crossover Amiibo is to be shared during Nintendo Treehouse live, so tune in to find out more!

Metroid Prime: Federation Force was just Announced at Nintendo’s E3 Direct

Despite being a very in-demand title, Nintendo had left us stranded without any Metroid games for a while—until now. At their E3 Digital Event, Nintendo announced Metroid Prime: Federation Force. This upcoming 3DS title will include a four player co-op world to explore, a first for the Metroid series. Furthermore, the previously revealed Blast Ball, a three-on-three sci-fi sports game, will be part of this release as a separate mode. While not many more details were given, we do know that Metroid Prime: Federation Force will be available sometime in 2016.

Hyrule Warriors for 3DS is called Hyrule Warriors Legends

It was already known that Hyrule Warriors was coming to 3DS, but Nintendo expanded on what the port to the 3DS would be like during their E3 Digital Event today. An English version of the previously leaked Japanese trailer was shown. The game will be a “reimagining of Wii U game.” The game will include all DLC characters with the additions of Tetra and the King of Red Lions. Not to mention an amped-up, metal soundtrack twist for the Wind Waker levels that will be coming. We have yet to see any real gameplay of Hyrule Warriors on the 3DS, but it is expected to come out during the first quarter of 2016.

Reggie and Iwata’s Epic Fight Was Done by Sakurai

If you saw the Nintendo Digital Event, you probably remember the opening video, wherein two of their most famous executives went head-to-head in an incredible live action battle scene. While Nintendo did team up with Robot Chicken to produce several short comedy skits for the show, it turns out that the battle sequence was produced in-house. On the E3 show floor, I spoke to a representative from Nintendo of America, who told me that the fight between Satoru Iwata and Reggie Fils-Aime was actually produced by Masahiro Sakurai, the director of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. titles—fitting, considering that it was shot to announce that Miis will be playable in the newest Smash roster.

I must say, I’m very impressed that Sakurai was able to animate that scene so stunningly. I was with many others in thinking that Nintendo had outsourced the special effects, but I guess Sakurai has even more talent up his sleeves than we knew.

Nintendo Holding E3 Digital Event on June 10th, Treehouse Streams Throughout E3

Are you guys excited for E3 2014 yet? If not, you will be after this news post!

In a quirky new YouTube video about a group of fans infiltrating the Nintendo headquarters in search of E3 news (you can check it out above), Nintendo announced their plans for E3 2014. Nintendo @ E3 2014 will be bigger than ever, featuring four different ways to experience the action.

To begin, the Big N announced that their E3 presentation this year will again be digital; however, it will now be called the Nintendo Digital Event rather than a Nintendo Direct. The Event will air on Tuesday, June 10th at 9 A.M. Pacific (noon Eastern time) and will reveal and provide further details about gaming experiences coming to Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond.

Nintendo also announced that developers from the Nintendo of America Treehouse will be streaming throughout E3 with live, unscripted demos from the Nintendo booth. It should be interesting to get a chance to see more about the games being shown from the developers themselves.

The description for the Digital Event states that we’ll be seeing game reveals as well as more information about previously announced titles; hopefully, that means that Zelda U and Miyamoto’s new project will be announced, perhaps with a Retro Studios announcement as well. Of course, we can also expect to see more about Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, Hyrule Warriors, and other previously announced titles.

What do you think? Excited for E3? I’ve already got June 10th circled on my calendar!
