Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jun 032016

Dragon-Quest-VII-screenshotNintendo’s E3 2016 plans caused a considerable amount of concern and confusion, but it’s not so bad after all.

The Legend of Zelda may be the only game playable at E3, and Nintendo’s digital press conference has been replaced by a Legend of Zelda live stream… but Nintendo Treehouse, at least, will show additional games.

According to the Nintendo Treehouse E3 schedule, the June 14 live stream will begin at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET with Pokémon Sun and Moon gameplay, and then The Legend of Zelda.

Live streaming will begin again on June 15 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET with a Pokémon GO Q&A. They’ll then show Monster Hunter Generations, Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past, and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.

This should give people another opportunity to see what Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is. The recent story trailer should also help.

So we’ve got a few more games besides Zelda to look forward to. The description says “including” those games, so we should see more.

A few notable titles are missing from the list, like Paper Mario: Color Splash. I’m still hoping they noticed the backlash and decided to change Color Splash into a story-driven RPG if it was Sticker Star 2.0.

Of course, I’m hoping for surprise announcements from Nintendo, too, and this makes them feel all the more likely.

Are you happier now that you know Nintendo will show at least some games besides Zelda at E3 this year? What do you expect to see from them?

  1. If they really did change Color Splash so much, they’ll probably delay it to the NX.

    Like Super Paper Mario went from GCN to Wii.

  2. Color Splash is crap. 🙁 I just wanna play a true RPG game? Samantha? What am I gonna do now! I can’t trust Nintendo over this infamous game in the series. They are going to say that it’s way better than TTYD. But that’s gonna bite them in the ass later on.

    Remember the Mother series?

    This will become the new Earthbound movement for Paper Mario fanbase on earth!


    • After Sticker Star, I don’t trust them with Paper Mario either. But still we can hope they suddenly reveal amazing Color Splash footage that looks like a wonderful story-driven RPG… can’t we??

      The way you talk about them claiming it’s better than TTYD makes me think of Capcom swearing for the past however-many Resident Evil games that they’re going back to their roots.
