Nintendo dedicating 90 minutes to a new 3DS game at special E3 event

New, 86 comments

Nintendo will hold two developer discussions at E3 2014: one to discuss Super Smash Bros and the other to discuss a new game for Nintendo 3DS.

The first event will take place June 10 from 10-11:30 p.m. ET. Game director Masahiro Sakurai will discuss Super Smash Bros., which is headed to Nintendo 3DS this summer and Wii U later this year. The second conference will be held June 11 from 9-10:30 p.m. ET. Both invitation-only events will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Nintendo has a history of hosting these evening developer discussions, which typically aren't broadcast online and go into more detail about the games Nintendo showcases and reveals at E3. A 2012 event from Wii U hardware producer Katsuya Eguchi discussed the then-upcoming hardware. Previous developer discussions have featured question and answer sessions from Shigeru Miyamoto and even revealed new games like The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Pikmin 3.

Late last month, president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime announced that the company would forgo a traditional E3 press conference for the second year in a row. It will host a Super Smash Bros. tournament and broadcast a Nintendo Digital Event on Tuesday, June 10 at noon ET.

E3 2014 will take place June 10-12, and Polygon will be there to bring you all the news. You can learn more about Nintendo's most recent game, Mario Kart 8, in Polygon's review and the Overview video below.
