by Daniel VuckovicMay 5, 2016

Nintendo has confirmed it’s plans for E3 2016 and like they said it would be, it’s nothing but Zelda for the Wii U. There’s no hints at anything else – the booth, the Treehouse Live and well everything is Zelda.

Nintendo says it will ‘transform’ its E3 booth to ‘immerse fans in the world of the newest game in The Legend of Zelda franchise’. The game is said to be playable at the show for the first time ever and will the only game playable in Nintendo’s booth with ‘extended demos’.

So what about for everyone else at home?

Well on Tuesday 14th of June local LA time Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime will introduce Nintendo Treehouse: Live. It will be dedicated to an entire day of live stream gameplay of The Legend of Zelda.

An entire day.

Series Producer Eiji Aonuma has said that this new instalment in The Legend of Zelda franchise will be a clean break from the convention of previous games, removing boundaries that forced players to follow a set path and introducing new gameplay that has not been experience in previous games in the series.

And that’s it, that’s the whole press release. No Digital Event, no Direct, no nothing.

    After blitzing it at 2014, Nintendo are just giving up the ghost. I’m sure Zelda will be an amazing game, but seriously, they’ve got no time for nothing else. And the game won’t come out until March next year anyway…half of my excitement for e3 has been doused…

    Why no Pokemon Moon/Sun Nintendo?!?!? Why?

    At least that game is rumored to be releasing this year and will be just as big a hit (if not moreso) than ZeldaU.
