Data analytics company Fancensus has offered further insight into E3 buzz with a new video sent out today. It reinforces the success that Zelda: Breath of the Wild experienced having been the most talked about game on Twitter, the most website coverage received, and most front page website placement. Aside from Zelda, Nintendo was one of the most viewed YouTube channels.

Here’s the full recap from Fancensus:


Just a week ago we were talking about what we wanted from Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Nintendo as a whole at this year’s E3. And now… it’s over! With everything so fresh, it’s a good time to talk about it all.

There’s no question that Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the highlight at E3. Nintendo kicked off the show with a trailer, followed by hours of coverage on the Treehouse stream. The game was a very hot commodity at E3. Even though Nintendo’s entire booth was dedicated to Breath of the Wild, that wasn’t enough to prevent massive lines.

Aside from Breath of the Wild, there was quite a bit more to Nintendo’s E3 than we would have thought a few weeks ago. A brand new 3DS action-RPG, Ever Oasis, was announced. We also heard about new amiibo, Mario Party: Star Rush, BoxBoxBoy! in the west, and Rhythm Heaven Megamix even had a stealth launch on the North American 3DS eShop. There were also release dates and coverage of games like Paper Mario: Color Splash and Dragon Quest VII.
