[E3 2014] Nintendo Direct Live Reaction


E3 2014 Nintendo header

Last year, Nintendo skipped the traditional press conference in favor of doing a Nintendo Direct presentation. While the idea sound, their use of UStream’s service saw some viewers, including us, experiencing lag, skipping, and entire reveals just not airing. However this time they’ll be using Twitch as their main streaming service. Steam technicalities aside, Wii U sales haven’t been too hot for Nintendo since last E3. While there would be upticks when certain games released, sales would be back down to their previous levels. One of the heavy hitters, Mario Kart 8, saw sales of the Wii U increase in the U.S. and Europe, but now so much in Japan. On the 3Ds side, things are stronger than ever with games like Tomodachi Life, Bravely Default, and Shin Megami Tensei IV releasing on the handheld. But now it’s about the future. Who will be the next challenger for SSB4? What will X’s final name be? And when the hell will we finally see some Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem action?

Note: due to last year’s incident with Youtube’s Content ID system hitting us as we were streaming the Sony Conference on Hangouts On-Air, we’ll only be showing our ourselves as we watch the conference, without the conference feed itself. Sorry for the inconvenience.
