Earlier this week, Nintendo teased its E3 2013 booth. And today, the company released a video showcasing its massive booth for those who weren’t lucky enough to go to E3 this year and experience the booth firsthand. The video tour, which you can watch above, is presented by Jessie Cantrell, who’s known for hosting Nintendo eShop’s Nintendo Show 3D. Today, June 13th, is the last day for E3 2013 attendees to visit Nintendo’s booth.
The brand spanking new trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag – named the Horizon trailer – has shown a much bigger world. In what has been described as a game where you can explore the world the way you want as a ‘invitation to fight, roam and explore’, it’s certainly an impressive treat for fans of the Ubisoft franchise. Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag will be released for PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 31 (North America) and November 1 (Europe).
The tease is finally over and the ‘historic’ franchise from Microsoft’s Rare is none other than Killer Instinct. Originally released for the SNES and N64, the updated Killer Instinct will be exclusive to Xbox One and developed by Double Helix. Check out the trailer above – shown during the E3 reveal – where Jago and Sabrewulf are shown as included in the new instalment. What do you think about Killer Instinct as an exclusive Xbox One reveal? Let us know in the comments below.
Satoru Iwata isn’t the only Nintendo president to visit fellow fans through his Mii, as Nintendo of America’s president Reggie Fils-Aime is also following in his boss’ footsteps. But unlike Iwata, who can be found in the 3DS Mii Plaza through SpotPass, Reggie can be found right on your Wii U, and there’s a special way to get him for you lucky people in North America.
To make Reggie a part of your Mii team, you can download him straight to your Mii Maker after receiving the notification that the E3 community boards on Miiverse is now live. At the bottom of the message, simply click on the ‘save to Mii Maker’ icon, visit it, and hey presto Reggie’s there in all his golden pants glory. Make sure you pick him up while you still have the chance as once E3’s been and gone, his Mii will too. To add to the E3 chatter, you can log onto the E3 Miiverse board now to discuss all the latest news.
SEGA has officially announced what games they will be bringing to next week’s E3 event, and of course that means Sonic Lost World will make an appearance.

Here’s the games you can expect to see from SEGA:
- Sonic Lost World
- Castle of Illusion
- Company of Heroes 2
- Total War: Rome II
- The Cave
As E3 gets closer, so does the amount of teasing from game developers, publishers and journalists. In among the fray is Game Trailers presenter and journalist Geoff Keighley, who has recently been spotted over Twitter teasing followers and fans over a ‘big E3 debut’, and it’s something special for sure. Here’s his tweet in full:
Saw something truly incredible last night that will be a big E3 debut. Even with all the DRM drama, next week will deliver some GREAT games. – Geoff Keighley

There’s big news on the horizon in next week’s Pokémon Smash which is detailed as another X and Y special. The hit Japanese show is due to air on June 16, and will follow the Roundtable at E3 next Tuesday. It’s likely that the information revealed at the Roundtable, and the next edition of CoroCoro on June 15, will be similar if not the same as the details in Pokémon Smash, but it’s being hosted by Junichi Masuda again, so either way it’s going to be important news. What are you expecting to be announced for Pokemon X and Y? Detail your thoughts in the comments section below.
Nintendo has opened a Miiverse community for this year’s E3.
