Nintendo’s Wii U hasn’t been the blockbuster sequel to the best-selling console like they’d hoped. With a lackluster lineup of titles and its confusing name, it has had a rough start and confidence in the hardware by publishers is waning.
However, Nintendo has always been different from Sony and Microsoft, in that they have a stellar list of first-party franchises. While Halo and Uncharted are great games, they don’t have the wide appeal that Nintendo offers with series like Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda.
To put worries to rest, Nintendo has officially announced that Nintendo’s big games will be discussed before E3:
#IwataSays We will discuss new Smash Bros., 3D Mario game, Mario Kart and other Wii U titles in our #NintendoDirectNA before the start of E3

Nintendo has officially stated that they will not be holding a press conference at E3, opting to run a one-man show instead, so it might be a little while before we hear any release dates.俺的ゲーム速報@JIN
