Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has explained why Nintendo decided to host a pre-recorded event for E3 rather than a stage conference. Reggie says that one of the biggest challenges is that many of their developers are Japanese, so having them explain things without subtitles can be challenging. Reggie went on to say that the whole environment of E3 has changed and people want lots of entertainment value, which they delivered in the video.
“The environment is completely changed. More and more people are looking to tune in to an event; more and more people are looking for the full entertainment value of an event.”
“Couple that with the fact that so [many] of our developers are Japanese, so having them explain the game directly is a little bit more challenging. We can do it in this type of environment,” he said, referring to a live show with a website, “but to do it from a big stage is a little challenging.”
“So for us, we think the best way to bring our message to the fans, to the larger community, is to create an event, to create something that we believe has all of the little Nintendo magic and pixie dust, and communicate that directly,”
“Through social media, we know exactly what people are saying. We know exactly what they’re feeling and how they’re responding to the message candidly, much more directly than we do when we’re present only to about 3,500 people. So for us, it really is a win-win.”
Thanks, Nintendo Commander

Jason Schreier, one of the writers for Kotaku, has said on Twitter that Nintendo is preparing to show off a big Nintendo 3DS game at 6pm Pacific Time. There’s no hints regarding what the mystery Nintendo 3DS title might be, but some are speculating online that it could be a new entry in the Metroid series, or possibly The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. We shall have to wait and see.
