I honestly think it was a bad presentation
Focusing on 2018 content could have worked if they reminded people all the games coming to the system, and maybe mentioning only (even without a teaser) some of the already announced games coming beyond this year. Maybe they are saving for the other Nintendo Directs of the year.

They had a lot of worth games from third parties that would have been better than 25min of Smash.
The delays also hurt, no matter how patient we are.

This is a point of frustration for sure. They should have cut 10 minutes of Smash time in favour of other titles present. And I do think the third party selection was good actually. The sizzle reel just made them seem unimportant.

While the year is jam packed with games, and HUGE potential sellers (Mario Party, Pokemon, Smash), I feel like Nintendo really dropped the ball here, at least presentation wise.

I would give the conference a 2. the only game worth hyping is smash, which looks the same as the wiiu version but with every character from the older games. third party support looks very weak as well.

If you think Smash is the same as the Wii U title, then you weren't paying attention. The return of directional air dodging alone will completely change how the game is played in the long run.

I meant it looked like a enhanced  port, but there wasn't anything mind blowing about it, just a ultimate version that looks revamped which could have been easily been patched in the wiiu version if they wanted too.

I agree. They really could have done much better and shown more. But basing purely on what we did get, I liked what I saw at least.

Can we please not discuss this on this thread?

So you weren't paying attention. Cool story, bro, I'll talk to you about it more if you actually watch it.

I think we’re making a mistake to judge content or presentation the same way we look at the other’s presentation.

What I mean is that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo all have different ways of using an event like E3. If Microsoft would have made a presentation like Nintendo, that would have been a disaster, because they mainly rely on E3 to showcase what they have in store, like a unique event to impress. 

In the case of Sony, the pacing was weird and even if dates or release windows weren’t properly announced, it dosen’t matter because they rely on more than one event to do so. I don’t know if they will be present in Paris like last year, but they use the personal event in December to present or announce games and use the E3 to showcase them or the other way around. The only moments it can be problematic are when the same game is shown to many times because it’s been unveiled to early, for exemple, if they had spent an other 10 minutes on Days Gone during their presentation that would have been redundant.

With Nintendo, E3 is not as relevant as it was before. Knowing that they can use their Direct to unveil or showcase previously announced game at any moment in the course of a year, I don’t mind that some games that I was expecting are not there because they can drop it at anytime. Each Direct can be a smal E3 like event, the big difference is that at E3 you have to fight for visibility, while it’s not always the case in august or january. With that in mind, their stategy of focusing on one big game,like in the past two years, is for me,the right one. There’s a bigger chance that Smash Bros will be the game the most talked about at E3 and on social media.

It might disappointing, but since they don’t rely on one event like Microsoft, I won’t judge them the same way.

Not even close bby 



Guys, we have plenty of other threads to discuss if Smash is a new game or a port, take it to one of those. We don’t need every Smash E3 thread to discuss the exact same question. Don’t derail the discussion.

Anyways, I thought the first half was great, and the Smash stuff was good but way too long. Golden Torna and Fire Emblem are easily my most hyped games currently.
