E3 Nintendo Direct Coverage

By: Trish Thompson


Sadly disappointing is Nintendo’s Direct video that started off E3 Tuesday (June 16) with many face palms and rage. This year, Nintendo has left fans with so much disappointment over new titles that they revealed, one of them even has a petition started to stop the game from being developed any further. Funny enough, I found Nintendo’s presentation to be the best and most entertaining. Most if not all of the content of the video was revealed on the previous days of E3. This is what they talked about:

Star Fox Zero

  • Arwing can transform into ground chicken, can use motion controls to move the Arwing
