Back in 2013, Nintendo decided to skip E3, telling fans it would be better served connecting with them on platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Last year, Nintendo used its online promotional platform, Nintendo Direct, to announce a slate of Wii U and 3DS games, including a new Zelda. That got us genuinely excited about the company's future again.
Nintnedo has claimed Zelda won't appear at this year's event. Instead we're hoping to see Nintendo announce reboots of neglected classics like Star Fox and Metroid. There may also be new content you can download for Smash Brothers and Mario Kart.
