Iwata Won’t be at this Year’s E3, and Here’s Why

It looks as if Satoru Iwata will be skipping E3 again this year, but not for the same reason as last year. Last year Iwata had to skip out on E3 due to physical illness, but this year he will be staying in Japan for the duration of E3 so that he can take care of “other areas of business”. A Nintendo rep spoke to GameSpot and explained it in further detail:

“Nintendo’s focus for E3 this year will be showcasing the many games we have coming for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Mr. Miyamoto and other members of our development team will be in Los Angeles to explain these games and the unique experiences that each offers.”

“Mr. Iwata’s focus in this period will be on other areas of our business that require his presence in Japan. While he remains in Japan, Mr. Miyamoto and our developers will lead the effort at E3 focusing on our games. Mr. Iwata will be in constant contact with the team in Los Angeles and will be monitoring the reaction to our product offerings from our partners at the show and by consumers publicly.”

Hey, but Miyamoto will be there, so that’s always good to hear – meaning the new Zelda U and maybe a new Super Mario game will possibly be talked about.

Nintendo’s E3 briefing will be another digital even this year, taking place on Tuesday, June 16th, at 9am PDT/11am CT.
