It would seem as though Nintendo president Satoru Iwata will not be attending E3 in Los Angeles next month. While Shigeru Miyamoto and other core Nintendo members will be at the gaming event, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata will be concentrating on engagements in Japan. Iwata will be in contact with the Nintendo employees attending E3 and will also monitor internet reactions to some of the announcements we are going to get.
“Nintendo’s focus for E3 this year will be showcasing the many games we have coming for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Mr. Miyamoto and other members of our development team will be in Los Angeles to explain these games and the unique experiences that each offers. Mr. Iwata’s focus in this period will be on other areas of our business that require his presence in Japan.”
YES! No Iwata at E3 is best for Nintendo. THANK GOD.
Hope it’s not a health problem
Doubt it. Either way, we’re gonna have to get Reggie with it.
Please thats like being grateful your about to get molestaed Instead of raped.
Well, I rather get touched than penetrated to be honest.
Either way, got intimate with a stranger? … Doesn’t matter, had sex.
Since he used the terms molested & raped, getting sex is definitely not a good thing in those scenarios. @.@
“Mr. Iwata’s focus in this period will be on other areas of our business that require his presence in Japan.”
So no it’s not a heath issue fortunately. He’s just bored and gave up on Nintendo, that’s all :)
Probably has something to do with the whole mobile collaboration thing with DeNA.
I heard about that, can’t fully believe it though =/
It’s not, he has “business” to do, meaning dealing with the Nintendo board of directors and investors lol.
He has business in making the biggest videogame burial since et, called wii u lake.
>>>Oh Iceazeama, I see you are still in love with our Lord>>>
Wow nice to see you again!
You would think that BoD and Invester meeting would be held on a different date. Its not like E3 is a small show after all.
Did you read it. He said he has to go to other places
He is probably going to be on the direct anyways, since it’ll probably be pre-recorded.
Like last year
You smoking something? Do you realize all of the great things Iwata is responsible for? Everybody always blames the presidents for everything that goes wrong. Whether it’s the president of the Unites States, or Nintendo. It gets old.
Ehhhh… good point. But they don’t exactly help matters when they bend over backwards to try & please everyone under them, so they can take some of the blame.
Well this is due to the fact that Iwata has been dead for little over a year now. Nintendo would want you and its shareholders to think otherwise. CG and 3D holograms are to blame…
He’s dead :(
Was he there last year? His presence isn’t particularly important – it was nice for him to show his face when they used to do the conference, but obviously with the digital event, there’s no need anymore.
Hopefully new Wii U and 3ds Games, Rhythm heaven 3DS localization, Youkaiwatch Release date, Xenoblade X release date, star fox release date, and for the love of god please localize the new ace attorney game! <3
Starfox will be October, I’m pretty sure of that.
;_____________________________; I’m happy.
So is it a digital event or fucking what?
Yeah its digital.
It is, but Nintendo still shows up at E3 every year. They just don’t do the whole stage thing anymore.
Yeah kind of sad how they aren’t doing that anymore. But then again, it takes a huge of time for no real reason. At least the way they’re doing it now, they can get straight to the announcements of games instead of just announcing things like statistics for the company.
Very true, I wouldn’t say for no reason though, but the direct is pretty much sufficient now and its actually a THING. Also, I can’t imagine how much they have to pay to have a presentation at E3, it must be a lot.
Exactly why it’s not sad at all. With the abandonment of the stage thing, Nintendo can get right to what the gamers actually care about. The reporters there can find out the statistic shit at another time.
Mr. Iwata is a very shy guy.
Probably embarrassed about no games and the poor excuse of a ahit kiddy game splatoon
At least he doesn’t waste his time going to websites to post about products he obviously hates.
IM SO HAPPY!!!! SERIOUSLY!!! =)
I can’t understand the guy half the time. I can see why people like seeing Miyamoto at these events (he’s a living Legend) but the rest of NOJ should stay home.
We got Reggie. Now if they would only bring back Howard Lincoln!
Miyamoto is too overrated as the pope. Million of social rejects wanting to kiss his ass.
How was sex with Deidara?
This years E3 just got ten times better without Iwatawatawatawatal!
Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t Iwata absent from the last E3 as well?
Yes. All these people are ignorant.
I believe so. It may explain why I enjoyed it a lot.
game explain NEXT GEN ING A SHOOTER DAT MM PERFECT GYRO LOL DUALSHOCK
Mr. Iwata is probably still sick. He seems to have lost a lot of weight in the last year.
Also i hope they will announce a release date for the standard New3DS in North America.
Hes not sick, its just that he’s so ashamed of wii u he lost tons of weight.
He is not ashamed of the wii u. The wii u is a masterpiece. He said he has other places to attend to. But Inst e3 extreamly important?
They need to release NX already to save the fucked up company.
>>>The 3DS says otherwise>>>
anal cancer confirmed
He’ll be there in spirit. Running Nintendo Of America is a hectic job, so he’s probably gonna have very busy schedule but I’m pretty sure he’s confident that Nintendo can pull it off without him as they have last year
Iwata is the ball n’ chains that holds Nintendo back in the gaming industry. They’ll be better without him.
In case you have FAILED to realize, Satoru Iwata is both the CEO of Nintendo in Japan AND Nintendo of America.
No wonder Nintendo sucks now. ..
Nintendo is still awesome. Nintendo is better than Sony and Microsoft combined. They make real games. If you don’t like them,leave
He is doing a great job for the Japanese gamers, but why not for NA gamers?
Because Japanese fucking dispise American.
Sadly, Nintendo of Ameri-rejects was shitty long before Iwata took over.
SCREW EVERYBODY WHO KEEPS INSULTING IWATA AND SAYING BAD THINGS ABOUT HIM! You’re all a bunch of hypocritical assholes!
Well then I just think everybodys tired of the shitty job hes been doing? Oh what hes been doing a good job? well I guess mario isnt mentally challenged either. Like really he still doesnt know how to talk, wonder why peach fucks Bowser.
I agree. Although I think Iwata is a little old fashioned when it comes to gaming in some areas, he is still a phenomenal businessman and he’s a large part of the reason of why Nintendo is still highly profitable on everything they sell. In a way he’s a genius
If I remember correctly,it was you who said that Iwata isn’t above the entire board of directors,which is the reason Nintendo isn’t where it could be right now
Yeah but what does that have to do with Iwata being a large part of why Nintendo is profitable? Yes I did say that board of directors control the FINAL decisions of what happens with Nintendo but I’m pretty sure they do use some of Iwata’s suggestions
Fuck you, sell out.
Iwata is abandoning the sunking ship. ” fuck..dis im… not doing this shit anymore” “nah nah nah nahhhhh nah nahh nah nahhhhhh plleeeheeeeahhhaassee unddaaastaaaand!” *ship sinks* *iwata floating away on only life boat that could have fit all the passangers* “pleeeeeeeheeeaheeeaaaase unndaaaastaaaaaaand!”
Koopa- thank god you saved me.. thank you thank you thank you! How can I repay you! ” by being…. my dinna….. on way home… with side of goomba that I alsooo sayved…..”……..
TL;DR: Fuck it. I’m done with Nintendo. Time for PC Master Race.
Fan fiction, bleh.
Hmm…did not see that coming. Here is a list of my E3 predictions. Please let me know what you guys think in the comments.
Well hopefully they dont waist their time on animal crossing or mario strikers but I do feel like paper mario will be announced and hopefully they dont fuck it up. They will talk about all the already announced games but they really need to make lots of good announcements. ….. I’d say your being realistic. I don’t think they will anounce to much.
They need to make the next Paper Mario in the classic style of The Nintendo 64 and Gamecube games. Sticker Star was shit. I played it for one day on the release day and haven’t picked it up again since. Also, imagine what kind of cool visual paper gimmicks they can make with HD visuals. I honestly think a Paper Mario game for Wii U would be my favorite announcement of E3 if it is made right.
Yeah id really like a paper mario I’ve been wanting to play a new one. I played sticker star like once too and im like…. wtf. I dont think id ever play it again unlike super paper mario which I ended up loving after beimg like…… wtf. lmao. Sticker star though is just original paper mario with everything good taken out. What a shitty way to make a game….. super paper mario was just innovative and fun, different but good.
I originally saw the commercial for the original paper mario and was like…… wtf, paper mario, dumb! Then my brothers friend sold it to him for a shitty cheeseburger, what a dumbass because ended up loving it. I played that shit all the time it was a really amazing game still is great. So is the second.
Yeah I remember being addicted to the original Paper Mario game as a seven year old. It was the first game I was obsessed with I believe. I had such great memories with that game.
Animal Crossing would NOT be a waste of time. Not a Wii U version that is. That’s one of the things I’m hoping for.
Yeah as I said in my video, Animal Crossing for Wii U would give the Wii U a good boost in sales for a little bit in the Japanese and North American regions. Plus, it would be amazing to see what the developers could do with the architecture of Wii U. It has better online and Miiverse than previous consoles so maybe an MMO would be possible? Plus they released the Animal Crossing app before for New Leaf and seeing the characters in HD was amazing.
No. There would be player kill and rage shut down.
THAT POKEMON Z BOX ART LOOKS SO LEGIT! XD, But I Know it’s Fan Made.
Anyway, I Think they could possibly have some Mario game in the works,
Cause it’s the 30th anniversary! idk about the Zelda thing they can always
Show the Nintendo direct.
Mario Maker is their game for celebrating the 30th anniversary.
I know. but it’s possible for another one.
Yeah, didn’t they say in a recent Direct that there will be more Mario content coming soon for the 30th anniversary? Maybe they will announce their new Rewards program with DeNA and the first line-up of Rewards is Mario themed. That would be pretty cool.
lmfao. he’s scared of real next gen gaming. Xbox one FTW.
Xbox One is a JOKE! If anybody wants a non-Nintendo next gen console, I recommend PS4. Playstation has better exclusives.
Never cared for sony anything. To be fair, they have seiken densetsu/Legend of Mana tho. That hurts my heart. ..
The wii u is the real next gen console. It has the best exlusives. Also half of Xbox ones games are fps. The wii u has more things than Xbox one. The wii u has NFC built in and a gamepad. The gamepad is extreamly comfortable. The wii u is the best. People who complain about nintendo should think twice. The wii u is even cheaper than the ps4 and Xbox one and the wii u is more worth the price. Almost every Xbox one game is on the 360
Fap Fap Fap. Who the fuck give a crap about inferior console when PC is far superior these days.
Mac is a joke!
Maybe sex with Deidara wasn’t enough to calm your tits down.
Go fuck Sakura.
Dude. Get a fucking PC… I mean get a fucking damn life.
The comments are worse than usual on this article….
Anyways okay? I mean it’s nice that he’s not sick but since they do a digital event it’s not too much of a big deal…
He just doesn’t wanna waste his time with trying to explain things to moron nintendo fanboys that only care about zelda and mp4 to focus on showing everything nintendos teams have been working on. New technologies and software.
Hey hey, bro. Im probably one of those fanboys!?
Although I don’t own a Wii U.
You should get one. Its better than people say
Get a PC. 144 Hz is very smooth. You will never want to go back to 60 Hz monitor.
I agree fan boys are a bunch of crybaby brats can’t stand them whiny little children that get mad when they don’t get what they want
He’ll be in the direct. Not that it really matters who shows up in person to E3 anyway.

I will miss his bad grammar. Hopefully samurai comes
I meant sakurai
At first, I thought of NEET Samurai, Sakata Gintoki.
I heard a rumor that he has AIDS now. Is it true?
In your fucking wet dream.
PLEASE nintendo, just show us a heap of games we have seen yet! No more Splatoon, Yoshi, and Xenoblade. We know they are gonna be great, so give us something new! Please…
>>>They already said they would>>>
They obviously will. Starfox is pretty much a lock for E3.
Nintendo really deserve a new president
Noa needs bill.
Well, it worked out well for Nintendo last year, so we’ll see what happens this year…
First mobile and now this.
Sounds like he’s still in hot water.
