Nintendo’s announcement that the upcoming Zelda title for Wii U would be the only game shown at E3 this year was met with disappointment by many, but the promise of in-depth footage and developer interviews was enough for Nintendo fans eagerly awaiting the next entry in the Zelda series.
In a somewhat surprising announcement, then, Nintendo has announced that it will in fact be showing off a number of other games alongside Zelda Wii U at E3. While there is still no press conference or Nintendo Direct planned, the new Pokémon games and a number of other upcoming releases will be showcased during the Nintendo Treehouse live stream on June 14 and 15.
