Nintendo briefly speaks about E3 2009, reps imply it will be big

Most gamers can probably agree upon the fact that E3 2008 was pretty much a big disappointment. Nintendo seems to have learned from their mistakes, however. In fact, Satoru Iwata said a few months back that this year’s E3 will be a place where Nintendo will show off new software. Nintendo of America’s vice president of corporate affairs, Denise Kaigler, briefly spoke about this year’s E3 in an interview. Though she did not say too much, there is an interesting tidbit to take away.
“I tend not to ever say that [no comment] because I was a reporter and I always hated it when people would say that to me, so I kind of wiped those two words out of my vocabulary. I will say to you, wait until E3…We don’t have anything to say about E3 before June 2.” – Nintendo of America’s vice president of corporate affairs, Denise Kaigler
As you can tell, Ms. Keigler didn’t exactly hype up this year’s event. But IGN’s Matt Casmassina was apparently told by Nintendo representatives at GDC to bring a bring a big team of editors – Something that seems to imply that this year’s E3 will be chock-full of Nintendo goodies.
