Nintendo to Skip E3 Press Conference, Most Likely for a Digital Event

During Nintendo’s recent financial results briefing, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima announced that once again, they will not have a large-scale press conference at E3. They will announce their E3 plans at a later date. This has alarmed some fans, who see this as a sign that Nintendo might have a small E3 presence this year like they did last year, when The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was both their focus and the only game playable on the show floor. However, Nintendo hasn’t had an E3 stage show since 2012. Ever since 2013, they skipped that in favor of a special Digital Event. These Digital Events can be just as effective as a stage show for Nintendo, and most likel... »

Splatoon 2’s Background Begins After the Last Splatfest

Splatoon 2’s Background Begins After the Last Splatfest

Last July, Splatoon players competed in one final Splatfest. Splatfests were special events where players would pick a team (based on some sort of preference, such as Cats or Dogs, Pirates or Ninjas, Burgers or Pizza, etc.) and fight battles to see which team would be declared victorious.

Marie’s team won, and it sounds as though this might actually play into Splatoon 2’s story. Only Marie appeared in Splatoon 2’s initial trailer, which led some players to speculate that Callie died until Nintendo clarified that both Squid Sisters would return in Splatoon 2. ... »
