This year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo was supposed to be the place where Nintendo would proclaim domination with its Wii U device, and show the world what its next gen system could do. And while there were more than enough games to go around, Nintendo themselves only had so many surprises up its sleeve, with the main one being…Nintendoland? That said, the company came up short in its presentation, and we count the five most crucial ways they did so.
Not to say that we aren’t excited for the Wii U, mind you. The system has potential, as we saw in such games as Zombi U, Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition and Rayman Legends. But there’s really so much more the company could’ve done. Let’s count down the letdowns…
Not enough done at their press conference.
When people attend your press conference, or watch it online, it usually means that they’ve got a huge interest in what you’re looking to reveal at an event, whether they’re covering it for an online article or merely watching as a fan. And Nintendo really didn’t do much with theirs. The fact that it kept trying to tie in attention with its “E3.Nintendo.com” site, and didn’t even show off all the potential Wii U and 3DS games at the event (it saved those for a later online showcase, of all things) just really left us with our heads shaking. And the fact it ended with a virtual fireworks display from Nintendoland, rather than a huge game reveal, disappointed us even further.
