Nintendo partnered up with the hilarious folks at Mega64 for this E3 prep video, which is silly and amazing.
If you don't have time to watch it all, here's the Cliffnotes version:
- A Smash Bros. tournament in Los Angeles during E3.
- Other Smash Bros. tournaments at Best Buys throughout the country.
- Live-streaming by the Nintendo Treehouse people during the show.
- A "Nintendo Digital Event" at 9am PT on Tuesday, June 10.
As for that last one... well, from Nintendo's press release:
Every year, Nintendo looks for the best way to show its games and share its news with fans, media and other key audiences. In 2013, Nintendo decided to forgo a traditional press conference and use a video – in that case a Nintendo Direct – to share its news from E3. The company is building on that approach at E3 2014 with the "Nintendo Digital Event," a new kind of video program that will reveal and provide further detail about the gaming experiences on the way for Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond. The Nintendo Digital Event will air at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 10.
In other words, sounds like they're not doing a press conference this year. Sad.
