Nintendo To Stream E3 Media Presentation

Nintendo announced Monday that fans will be able to tune into a live stream of their E3 media presentation at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Tuesday, June 7.

Following the presentation, fans will be treated to additional coverage on the site, including interviews, game trailers and special video segments not included in the original presentation. In addition to updates from Nintendo’s show floor, it’s been announced that the Wii’s Nintendo Channel will provide “a variety of exclusive content.”

Nintendo is also set to reveal its long awaited successor to the Wii, codenamed “Project Cafe”. Expect more details on upcoming 3DS games, and a release date for one of the Wii’s last big games, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

G4TV holds exclusive rights to commercially broadcast the entirety of E3 via television and streaming broadcasts through 2013.

Analysis: For Nintendo, last years E3 was a runaway success. The 3DS had the masses hyped, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword had its first proper showing (though expectations were dampened due to wireless interference), and Kid Icarus was back. If Nintendo has its way, then this year will be better, and there’s no way in hell that they’re not gonna broadcast it for the entire gaming world to see.

This is good for lazy people like me – who use their desktops and laptops for everything, including a television set. Literally. Reruns of Scrubs is a must. A short month ago, I didn’t even have cable, so had it not been for my laptop, I would have been assed out. And pissed. And over someone else’s house to watch the presentation.
