E3 2013: Nintendo@E3 Direct

E3 2013: Nintendo@E3 Direct


Is your body Reggie? Erm, I mean ready? Nintendo is hosting its E3 2013 Nintendo Direct today at 7 am PDT/10 am EST where they will discuss the future of the Wii U and 3DS. With a lackluster start for the Wii U, specifically in the games department, Nintendo hopes to rekindle the relationship between them and the hardcore gamer. Which first part exclusives will make its way to the Wii U? What is Retro Studios working on? Will Nintendo show that they are capable of bringing a healthy amount of 3rd party games to the Wii U console? What will Miyamoto wear next? Are those creepy Year of the Luigi mascots back again? Find out the answers to these questions and more by tuning into Vivid Gamer’s live blog of Nintendo@E3.


Sorry if there was any confusion regarding the live blog. There were a few technical issues that weren’t ironed out in time. Here’s a summary of what happened during the technical issues:

-Bayonetta 2 received a release date slated for 2014.

-Monolith’s new title X received a release date slated for 2014.
