Nintendo Direct E3 2015 live report

It's over. All the news as it happened.

Nintendo's increasingly distanced itself from E3, and never more so than at this year's show, where it worked through a slim line-up of the games we'll be playing over the next nine months. There were some gems there - StarFox looks interesting, Fire Emblem is bound to amaze and Mario Maker could be this year's most creative hit - but it was hard not to walk away a little disappointed after all the flare of yesterday. Catch it all as it happened here.

Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage

16:39

20 minutes to go until the magic, the wonder and battiness of Nintendo's E3 digital event.

16:40

What are we expecting? StarFox? Animal Crossing? SHENMUE 3?!?!?!?

16:40

Oh wait, scratch that last one.

16:40

Nintendo's got an awful lot to do if it wants to eclipse last night's offerings - let's not forget that Microsoft had a good showing before all the Sony drama.

16:41

And hey, if they've actually got a game or two coming out this year they'll already have Sony beat on that front.

16:42

16:42

Expect plenty of these guys.

16:43

God, that's giving me flashbacks to the time we shared a hotel with a furry convention at Rezzed a few years back.

16:43

The torn fur in the lifts in the morning, the smell of sweaty latex. Such sadness.

16:45

jamyskis1981 says:

I completely forgot about Animal Crossing. There have been a few noises about a potential Wii U version of that one.

Now I play it on 3DS daily I feel it's a handheld game through and through - would feel odd going back to a home console. Still, I'd take it.

16:47

A new Mario, a new F-Zero or a new Doshin the Giant? Anything's possible in the next hour or so.

16:49

vert1go says:

And of course Pele Stories. CALLING IT.

Bring him to Smash Bros., stat. He just sits on a stool, pummelling the opposition with his amazing anecdotes.

16:50

How's about a new Metroid, while we're at it.

16:50

vert1go says:

Outside bet (and not counting the 3DS port), Hyrule Warriors 2? Or more dlc for it and MK8 or Splatoon?

The 3DS version leaked not long ago, so it's a good shout.

16:50

I'd actually be happy if they just spent an hour detailing Splatoon updates.

16:51

I'd actually be happiest just playing Splatoon for an hour or so. That game!

16:51

vert1go says:

Surely they'll throw us something for Splatoon as an "available now".

New weapons coming tomorrow morning, and we're due a new map so I don't see why not. Aaaarrggggh why is my Wii U so far away from me right now...

16:53

I've only just tuned in, and my oh my that is Galaxy music. What could it mean?

16:54

I'd take just listening to the Galaxy soundtrack for an hour.

16:55

16:55

Bring the hype.

16:56

AmicableWalrus says:

Are there going to be territory specific conferences? The look of the video preview seems like the NoA one, is that the only one?

That's the only one, I believe.

16:57

Listening to this music and I'm all like:

16:57

16:58

riceNpea says:

I predict a new Mario

BOLD.

17:00

Iwata puppet action!

17:01

I don't buy the Reggie as hench thing. He's always just struck me as slightly terrifying more than anything else.

17:01

Mr.Spo says:

What goes on at this company?

I don't know, but I'd love a couple of drops in my tea.

17:02

We're heading deep, deep into StarFox territory.

17:02

And I'm getting horrible flashbacks to that furry convention again. But now Reggie's inserted in them, and it's all so much worse.

17:03

Oh Nintendo.

17:03

Here's our first look at StarFox.

17:03

It looks quite traditional, following on from the original and 64 with elements from both.

17:04

The GamePad's used for a first-person viewpoint, and there's a bipedal walker there for what I think is the first time.

17:04

And it's called StarFox Zero.

17:05

17:05

Miyamoto is now talking about the Fushimi Inari shrine and his relationship with it, and how that pertains to StarFox. Of course he is.

17:05

The arches in StarFox are inspired by the arches at the shrine. I did not know that!

17:06

There were demoes of StarFox last year, but this looks very different.

17:07

The Wii U has the cockpit view, and you can aim using it.

17:07

It looks quite counter-intuitive - interested to see how it plays out.

17:08

The Arwing transforming into a Walker is a cut mechanic from StarFox 2.

17:08

Which, of course, was never released. Also the Landmaster is in, as is the Gyrowing.

17:09

Stop with all this madness about a redesigned pad!

17:10

Reggie the fillet is up. He just looks like he could break you in two.

17:11

We'll be hearing about NX next year, which we knew already. And transformation is the theme for this year.

17:11

Mario's 30 this year, which - if my experience is anything to go about - will mean he's asking some serious questions about what he's done with his life.

17:12

All of which will make it into Mario Maker, I'm sure.

17:12

Straight into Amiibo. Or Skylanders. We're straight into the toys, basically.

17:13

I'm keen on Nintendo, but not this keen.

17:13

Anyway, another third party Wii U game confirmed! That's something. A small, quite underwhelming something.

17:14

These Skylanders toys double up as Amiibos, for what it's worth.

17:14

I don't know why there's cynicism in my tone, I've got six Amiibo, four of them still in their boxes. I'm the problem.

17:14

17:15

Those hands have broken many, many lesser men than Reggie.

17:15

Mario Maker up for reals now.

17:16

Oh wait, maybe not - a new 3DS Zelda first.

17:16

It's co-op focussed (and I missed its name already)

17:17

17:17

There's a strong Four Swords vibe. It's called Triforce Heroes, and it's out later this year.

17:18

Shares the same visual style of A Link Between Worlds.

17:19

My stream's crapped out briefly, apologies.

17:20

Aaand I'm back pretty much where we left off - Triforce Heroes is still the focus.

17:21

Multiplayer is online.

17:21

And here's the confirmation of Hyrule Warriors. It's a 'reimagining'. I guess that means it's substantially different.

17:22

Tetra and the King of Red Lions from Wind Waker also feature.

17:22

This is the trailer that leaked last week.

17:22

I'm yet to get stuck into Hyrule Warriors, though I'm told it's the perfect hangover.

17:23

Maybe I'll get belted tonight just to give me a good excuse to play it tomorrow. It'll make tonight's PC Gaming Show fun, at least.

17:23

It's coming early next year - first quarter 2016.

17:24

Oh man, I wish that scene of Iwata punching Reggie was in real life and not just in puppet world.

17:24

And here's a new Metroid, while we're at it.

17:25

Blastball, which featured in the weekend's Nintendo World Championships, is a part of this new Metroid, as many expected.

17:25

Metroid Prime Federation Force isn't given much time - we're seeing it this week, though, so should have more details soon - and we're straight into Fire Emblem: If.

17:26

Just a cutscene trailer for that before we go to Fire Emblem vs. SMT.

17:26

This should keep the hyperfans happy, but it's not really going to win anyone else over.

17:28

Someone's just asked me if this is a Japanese game. I'm not quite sure myself. Great soundtrack!

17:28

Standard banana moment from Iwata, and onto Xenoblade. Hoping for a release date here.

17:29

It's out 12th April this year!

17:30

Hang on?

17:30

Still Americans, I guess that means December 4th.

17:30

17:30

Animal Crossing Home Designs Edition or whatever it's called now, which features the new card Amiibo.

17:31

I can't pretend I won't be all over this when it launches, mind.

17:31

Happy Home Designer, out the end of September

17:31

And here's an Animal Crossing on Wii U!

17:31

Wait....

17:32

Here's an Animal Crossing board game on Wii U. That's not *quite* the same.

17:33

Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival, which looks somewhat underwhelming.

17:33

I can't help but feel Nintendo's trolling us right now.

17:34

The making of the yarn Amiibo now. Take that Sony.

17:35

We've been playing this for a while in the office - review's up in the near future.

17:35

The apathy's getting the better of me here though.

17:36

Anyone got any exciting plans tonight? Got any good jokes?

17:36

Timbercottage says:

Martin, Give us a general vibe of how you feel about the game?

I'm not overwhelmed. Not underwhelmed either really. It's just a lukewarm whelming all over.

17:38

richarddavies says:

"Anyone got any exciting plans tonight? Got any good jokes?"This E3 presentation?

Ring up the burns department, we've got a fresh one coming in.

17:38

Yokai Watch is coming west at long last. This I can get behind.

17:38

If you didn't know, this is just *huge* in Japan.

17:38

They do branded toilet paper and everything.

17:40

Mario & Luigi Paper Jam, which I'd be interested in if my brain wasn't already fried by the prospect of a new Mario Tennis.

17:41

Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, out the end of this year. They're really stringing out all the second rate Nintendo series right now.

17:42

It's like an inverse of last night's Sony conference.

17:42

At this rate the show will end with news of an Urban Champion reboot.

17:43

Onwards with some lovelier stuff. Mario Maker, which is looking ace.

17:43

Imagine a LittleBigPlanet that was actually fun to play and you've got this, basically.

17:44

I feel like the guy doing the voiceovers is trying to seduce me.

17:44

I'm not sure I like it.

17:45

Miyamoto's voiceover chap is okay. It's Tezuka's. It feels like it belongs to that of a man who's just sat next to me in the cinema and placed his hand on my knee and I definitely don't like it.

17:46

Mario Maker is out September 11th this year.

17:47

Um, I think that's it.

17:47

Come on, Urban Champion reboot - you can do it.

17:49

In summary.

17:49

17:50

That was quite deflating, despite the feelgood montage at the end. Ah well, onwards! Square Enix next - see you over there in a tick.

17:53

In summary, Nintendo's still got plenty of class and charm, but really not much else to show for itself right now. Here's hoping the Treehouse stuff delivers over the next few days.

    I remember watching Tezuka playing Mario Maker on the last E3 stream and being an absolute demon at some seriously hard levels.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    Mario Maker with Miyamoto and Tezuka playing is looking utterly bonkers.
    SBandy 6 years ago
    @vertigo Forget Mario. Watching the treehouse, the view from the game pad is very dofferent from the tv view so it appears you need to be lookong at the gamepad. I am hoping they confirm there is a classic option.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    Shenmue 3 was a "Sony grabs an exclusive using you the gamer's money" and largely sneaking it past everyone.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    The new optional to look at screen and the new twin stick advanced controls you haven't even tried yet? Right.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    the basics are "move and jump in a direction". you'll find not many games have changed that in 30+ years.
    SBandy 6 years ago
    @vertigo what I was using was an extreme example but the basics of mario have not changed. I was more highlighting completely messing with the entire experience of the Starfox games. A part of it has always been about the cinematic experience and that is now being impacted by the new controls, in my opinion.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    Yoshi's Island never completely changed them all round...
    vert1go 6 years ago
    SMB 2 never had the throwable items, 3 never had the hold-run-tail...
    vert1go 6 years ago
    Mario 64 DS never had that weird thumb nub thing or touch...
    vert1go 6 years ago
    FLUDD never existed.
    SBandy 6 years ago
    Maybe I am being over dramatic, I dunno my hype for Starfox has been unreal haha. But watching the treehouse show. The players focus was on the pad only, not a good sign for me.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    "Nintendo don't mess with the Mario controls"? Oh yes. I forgot. There was no pointer in Galaxy. There was no weird semi-analogue "boost" running in 3D World. Mario 64 never used the analogue stick but the NES controller.
    SBandy 6 years ago
    @Ironsoldier Mario games have kept the core controls for years now, obviously a distinction between 2d and 3d series. As someone who has played Lylat Wars on Gamecube and Classic Controller on my Wii/ Wii U a N64 controller is not required. Playing through the gamepad for what has always been a cinematic game is stupid, and my mind wont be changed on that. Innovation is great, but not always required. Plus so far (cause more might happen) Nintendos E3 has been rubbish.
    captain-b 6 years ago
    Really underwhelming. Wii U never took off, this poor show didn't help it move one bit further along the runway...

    joeymoto108 6 years ago
    Are they going to spruce up the visuals? Starfox honestly looks ugly as sin
    SBandy 6 years ago
    A fool fixes things that aren't broken. Star Fox 64 nailed the controls, wht mess with that? Also Nintendo don't mess with the Mario controls just the surroundings. Why can't they just have a straight sequel for Starfox/ F zero? Hardly games with an overabundance of sequels.A lack of understanding of what your fans want.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    Starfox Zero is being made with Platinum!
    vert1go 6 years ago
    Nintendo is more interested in offering twists on the experience than the same thing again. Sorry about that.
    SBandy 6 years ago
    UNDERWHELMING! Also lets be clear Nintendo I do not want a new control method with the gamepad for Star Fox, you nailed the controls with 64 so stick with them. I did not buy an HD console and an HDtv to play a game through the game pad! I am massively disappointed.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    Starfox is looking damn nice on Treehouse though.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    I think dropping in a MK8 or Splatoon thing might have helped.
    FMV-GAMER 6 years ago
    I suppose it was a big ask for Nintendo to win two E3's in a row wasn't it?. They at least showed a few games that I am interested in though.

    To be fair, Starfox, Xenoblade, Fire Emblem, Yoshi. That's probably all the games I can afford this year anyway..

    vert1go 6 years ago
    Treehouse will fix things.
    smelly 6 years ago
    Remember - a fair few games (like starfox) got announced during treehouse last year... But yeah, bit disapointed. But at least they didnt show me a load of games I can play on my pc, not requiring me a console.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    Now THIS looks good.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    No Pele. Not even a MENTION of Splatoon. Sigh.
    Timbercottage 6 years ago
    So I'm assuming Zelda has been delayed to become an NX launch title... This was a disappointing show but hopefully means there is plenty to come in the future.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    Now Treehouse.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    There's at least one game a month til the end of the year.
    AmicableWalrus 6 years ago
    Everything is being pushed to NX. That's my guess.
    Mr.Spo 6 years ago
    Not as bad as detractors will make out, but a disappointing event even without particularly high expectations. Yoshi, Mario Maker, StarFox, Mario Tennis and Xenoblade will all be worth watching, and Devil's Third may yet turn out well, but the lack of any big budget announcements for Wii U is disappointing. Fire Emblem, the Mario RPG and Yokoi Watch on 3DS should all be good, and the Metroid spin off is worth keeping an eye out for.
    vert1go 6 years ago
    At least Nintendo HAVE games coming this year.

    seeyoshirun 6 years ago
    I have very mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, Nintendo's lineup for 2015 was already looking pretty solid, but this presentation did a really underwhelming job selling it and lacked any big surprises. Sony's presentation was good but felt like an attempt to distract from the lack of exclusives this year. I'd actually say Microsoft did the best job this year, at least in terms of the presentations. Which I never thought would be the case.

Probably a couple more titles pencilled in for this year, too. We also have to remember Nintendo quite like to drop big reveals through-out the year.

    jamyskis1981 6 years ago
    @AmicableWalrus The absence of any news on Retro plus absence of news on Metroid would suggest that Retro is back on the Metroid train perhaps? Maybe wishful thinking and wildly speculative, but their roots do lie in the Metroid franchise, so it's not unlikely.
    PhoenixRobo 6 years ago
    Nintendo will win E3 if they show even 5 minutes of Zelda
    jamyskis1981 6 years ago
    @BarryBrummie Yeah, the two F-Zero tracks in the Mario Kart 8 were certainly a very unsubtle indication. People were claiming that it was de facto confirmation that we would never see an F-Zero game again. But why would Ninty go to the trouble of creating F-Zero references if not to regenerate interest in the franchise?
    AmicableWalrus 6 years ago
    Hopefully Xenoblade gets a 2015 date; it's already been out in Japan for a while now. I'll be really disappointed if we don't learn what Retro is doing. I think the soonest we'll hear about NX is next year.

    jamyskis1981 6 years ago
    I think this E3 will basically be make-or-break for the Wii U. The console can subsist on first- and second-party exclusives alone - such is the quality of Nintendo's output - but it needs more than the range of titles already announced. Mario Maker, Xenoblade Chronicles, Starfox and an indefinitely postponed Zelda just aren't enough to cover the next year and a half. We need a new Metroid, a new F-Zero. Heck, why not dig up some of Ninty's more obscure IPs like Excitebike and Kid Icarus?
