Nintendo is betting it all on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U this year at E3, and purportedly the demo they will be presenting (or two as rumor has it) will be massive. According to a press e-mail that is circulating, Nintendo is asking press to set aside 90 minutes to play the demo, which is an enormous time investment considering journalists are constantly running from appointment to appointment and trying to play as many games as possible at E3 for coverage.
The upside of this though is that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U is Nintendo’s only playable game at E3 — meaning that instead of spending hours trying to get through all of their games, there are just two extensive demos that are only 90 minutes long (combined) that journalists have to get through. So it is not nearly as bad as it may seem.
Nintendo’s plans this year are bold, but with the shift in focus with regards to E3 and how companies are approaching it, Nintendo may just be ahead of the game.
