The Legend of Zelda Wii U playable at E3
Nintendo confirms plans to focus on Zelda during E3 2016
Nintendo will transform its booth at the E3 video game trade show next month in Los Angeles to focus on The Legend of Zelda franchise – playable for the first time ever at the show.
The Legend of Zelda for Wii U will be Nintendo’s focus of the show this year, and will be the only playable game in Nintendo’s booth via extended demos.
Nintendo’s kickoff to the E3 show happens at 9 a.m. PT Tuesday, June 14, when Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime introduces Nintendo Treehouse: Live, which will be dedicated to a day of live-streamed gameplay of The Legend of Zelda. This will be the world’s first in-depth look at the game, which will also include commentaries by Nintendo developers.
The new Legend of Zelda will also appear on the Nintendo NX console - however the publisher has said the new console will not appear at E3 and will be revealed at a later date. Spring 2017 is the planned launch window.
E3 2016 takes place June 14 - 16.
