Nintendo Land E3 2012 fireworks

Former Nintendo of America employees Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang have shared insight into the company’s notorious E3 2012 press conference which ended on the display of fireworks from Nintendo Land. The two reflected on what happened during a recent episode of their podcast.

Nintendo has had some amazing moments at E3, but some infamous ones as well. Some will probably never forget the Wii Music performance with DJ Ravi Drums in 2008 and things going wrong during Shigeru Miyamoto’s demo of Zelda: Skyward Sword in 2010. Unfortunately, another instance of things not exactly going well was the aforementioned Nintendo Land closer.

Last week, the refurbished Wii U Deluxe with Nintendo Land bundle sold out on Nintendo’s website. The product has since returned however and can be ordered right here. You’ll need to fork over $200 for the bundle.


Nintendo Land appears to have been removed from the North American Wii U eShop. It’s simply no longer available for purchase as a digital download.

This only applies to North America. As far as we know, Nintendo Land is still up on the European eShop.
