To Nintendo’s credit, they came right out and confirmed that they would not be debuting the upcoming NX console at E3 this year, instead of stringing people along. So let’s be real, no one really expects Nintendo to show much of, or even talk much about, the NX at the show, if at all.
But when Nintendo are announced to be making an appearance at Geoff Keighley’s E3 show on YouTube, then one needs to ask themselves if Nintendo might not be dropping some hints about the machine after all. Keighley’s shows are usually a big deal, and companies usually show up on there with substantial announcements, right? So can we expect Nintendo to at least talk a bit about the NX at the show tomorrow, Monday at 5.30pm?
Ordinarily, I would have said no, and I would have stressed that Nintendo will probably show off some Zelda, and that will be that- but interestingly enough, the show is tomorrow, a day before Nintendo debut Zelda, and they are unlikely to ruin the surprise ahead of their own stream. So they have to be talking about something during their segment, right?
I’m not saying it has to be NX- but it could be NX. Then again, this is the company that once showed up to VGX with the announcement of Cranky Kong being playable in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, so who knows with them, really?
