Recap: Nintendo’s Press Conference At E3 2015


Nintendo’s press conference started the day on Tuesday. Here are the highlights.

There was an adorable puppet introduction which transitioned into a Star Fox themed newscast. It ended in a world premiere trailer for Star Fox Zero, arriving this holiday.

Miyamoto discussed his inspirations for creating Star Fox, as well as how the GamePad will work within the structure of the game.

Reggie came on to discuss Super Mario Maker as well as amiibo.

My live stream went out.

3DS The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes announced.

3DS version of Hyrule Warriors in development: Hyrule Warriors Legends.

Both will arrive early in 2016.

3DS Metroid Prime Federation Force was announced.

Fire Emblem Fates announced for 3DS and it will arrive in 2016.

Xenoblade Chronicles X will arrive on December 4th.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer releases September 25th.

Animal Crossing amiibo Festival, arriving holiday 2015.

Yoshi’s Wooly World was discussed at length, and it arrives on October 16th.

Yokai Watch arriving holiday 2015.

3DS Mario and Luigi Paper Jam, arriving spring 2016.

Mario Tennis was shown…and then my live stream went out again. :(

Super Mario Maker was shown at length. It will arrive on September 11th.

I apologize for gaps in this recap. I spent approximately 24% of the live stream trying to get it back up and running.

Here’s hoping it runs smoother for Square Enix, which is up next. Stay tuned.

  1. As with Microsoft’s conference I have none of this will apply directly to me beyond any rippling effects of what Nintendo is doing that might permeate into other areas of the industry. I did really enjoy the puppeteer work, that brought a big smile to my face. And Mario Maker looks incredible! All those old sketches of original level design filled me with nostalgia. And I’m still not sure just what Nintendo is trying to accomplish with Amiibo, but I guess their fans get it…


    • nintendo just puzzled me this year. it started so strong with the puppets, and the section with miyamoto and then it just felt…weird.

      i was disappointed that they didn’t offer any hope for the amiibo-loving population. i feel like even a small statement of, “we are working on getting them into your hands” would have made a huge difference.

      i still feel like they are biding their time until the NX.
