E3 2014

Ubisoft’s E3 2014 media briefing is set for June 9 at 3 PM PT / 6 PM ET, according to the expo’s official Twitter account. You’ll be able to watch the event on


Nintendo has been hard at work on creating certain titles that can only be realized with the Wii U GamePad. We’ll start seeing some of the company’s efforts at this year’s E3, according to president Satoru Iwata.

Iwata told investors the following during a briefing held earlier today:

At the Corporate Management Policy Briefing this January, I explained that the company would prioritize making and proposing Wii U software titles that can only be made possible with the Wii U GamePad. We are planning to disclose our progress on this at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) in Los Angeles in June.


CVG has received confirmation from Nintendo that new hardware will not be revealed during E3 2014 next month. “I can confirm Nintendo is not revealing any hardware at this year’s E3,” a representative said.

Rumors regarding an upcoming announcement gained significant traction yesterday after several publications came forward claiming that a system of some sort would make its debut at the expo. Chatter was first picked up on from IGN’s Nintendo Voice Chat podcast, and a few other sites backed up claims that a reveal was set for E3.

With Nintendo now denying the rumors, it would seem that the whole situation was comprised of nothing more than speculation after all.

Earlier today, Nintendo launched its official website for E3 2014. You can find it right here.

Until just a short while ago, the page included an interesting mention of a “new Nintendo system” in its source code. The strange thing? It’s gone now.

I wasn’t entirely sure if this was worth mentioning, but quite a number of you have brought it to our attention. Was it a mistake? Something more? Nothing at all?

By the way: in case you’re questioning the validity of the image above, I can confirm that it’s the real deal. I saw it earlier in the day myself!



Update: Added in the official announcement after the break.

Today, Nintendo has unveiled its plans for E3 2014.
