Nintendo at E3: Day 1 Grade

E3 Day 1 – Wii and DS Overview
Every year game developers from across the globe gather at what can be called the biggest video game convention in the world to showcase what they believe to be their top quality products. In past years this is where games like The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and the Sony Playstation 3 console were announced, and this year should be no different. With rumors circulating of new Mario’s or new Zelda’s among others, E3 2009 promises to be just as good, if not better, than previous outings.
Well folks, the day has finally come! Nintendo will be showing off its latest games at their annual E3 conference, which is now only one hour away.
Make sure to stick with Nintendo Everything for the latest news from the show – We’ll post news as soon as it happens. Moreover, screenshots, fact sheets, press releases, trailers, videos, and any other Nintendo-related items will go live once they become available.
My last words of “encouragement:” Try not to hype yourselves up too much. If we don’t get Zelda or Kid Icarus at E3, there’s always Nintendo’s October conference…And next year! Also, remember that Miyamoto is hosting a roundtable event later today…So perhaps there could a few surprises there (or maybe not). Now cross your fingers and hope for the best. But things couldn’t be worse than last year anyway, right?!
You can make out some objects in these pictures that clearly have relation to Mario…So could this be the new Mario title that Nikkei was “teasing?”
There’s also one last area that doesn’t even have signs covered. What could be more secretive than a Mario game? Unless it’s Wii Fit Plus…
