UPDATE: Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe are also holding Nintendo Directs. NOA’s is tonight at 9:00 PT and will be focused on 3DS, DS, and Wii. Watch it live here.
Original: Good old Nintendo is treating us to more news again on Friday! This is a Japanese Nintendo Direct, but I’d still expect some news that could apply to the world. It’ll be airing at 8:00 P.M. PT on the 21st. You can watch it live (in Japanese) here.
My wish for the event? News about Animal Crossing 3DS! “No Animal Crossing” was actually trending on Twitter after their 3DS E3 Software Showcase. They had to have noticed that right?
And so it begins. Iwata, Reggie, and Miyamoto have arrived in LA for E3. But that’s not the big news here. The big news here is that Nintendo is holding another one of their direct-to-fan presentations tomorrow to talk Wii U before the big bang of their Tuesday conference and the ska-doosh of their Wednesday software showcase. They say it’s to talk the concept behind the Wii U and such. There is bound to be plenty of fun so be sure to tune in here at 3 pm PT.
Expect this to be the beginning of a spectacular array of E3 posts here as well as me trying my hand at live tweeting throughout E3 from my couch.
Is your body ready?
Coming out of E3 we have the first trailer for the Lego Lord of the Rings videogame! Looks epic! And I guess the talking Lego Minifigs are here to stay!
I’ve done it.
I’ve written a Super Mario fan fiction… a playable one!
Yep, I’ve written it is as an interactive fiction on Playfic. I’m pretty proud of it. I created most of it a month or so ago, but had got distracted by…Oooooh shiny…
In any case, it’s now finished and out to the universe. Go play Fungus and tell me what you think!
WoooooHooooooo!!! I really, REALLY, hope this becomes a reality. View the project here.
Come on Lego and Nintendo! Make my dreams come true! Let’s push them to 10,000! If you haven’t already, SUPPORT IT NOW!!!!!

– Presentation: 9:00AM (West Coast)
This cracked me up today. The following comments come from Shigeru Miyamoto.
“There aren’t many games that I’ve played recently that have been truly convincing to me. But that said, I have very much enjoyed Angry Birds, especially the way in which it combines traditional and new game elements in exciting ways. Angry Birds is a very simple idea but it’s one of those games that I immediately appreciated when I first started playing, before wishing that I had been the one to come up with the idea first. I mean, obviously I want to be the one creating the most convincing, surprising game ideas.
In particular the control scheme is excellent. When you analyze it, the controls are actually quite fuzzy in terms of the way that it works. It takes a little while to get used to the controls, I think, but once you’ve mastered them, you have a lot of precision. To make it the interface and controls work that well and intuitively… well, I think a lot of work went into getting that right.
Obviously, if the developer had created the game for Nintendo DS the controls would have been even better, but what can you do?”
