Historically, Nintendo has always held a massive conference during E3; but this year they have decided to change it up. Since they aren’t showing off any hardware, they will be showcasing all of the new games during a special Nintendo Direct the week of E3.
Shortly afterward, you will be able to play a selection of these newly announced games at participating Best Buys. This is a really smart move for Nintendo, who likely have a lot to show at this years E3. Super Smash Brothers, Mario Kart and a new Galaxy-esque Mario game are expected, as well as Wind Waker HD, Pokémon X & Y, and The Wonderful 101.
