Nintendo Details Plans for Legend of Zelda at E3

Nintendo previously announced that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U would be the only playable on the E3 show floor.  Even with that announcement, they have now announced some additional details.  There will be several extended demos for people to be immersed in the latest installment in the series.  Nintendo will be kicking off E3 on Tuesday, June 14 at 9 a.m. PT (12 p.m. for those of us on ET) with a Treehouse Live featuring gameplay from this Legend of Zelda title.

This will be the world’s first in-depth look at the Legend of Zelda and fans and attendees will get a deeper understanding of the game will play.  This live stream on June 14 will feature Reggie Fils-Aime along with some of the developers of the game.  This will be streamed on the E3 show via the typical YouTube and Twitch channels for not only E3 attendees but also for those of us not in attendance.  There will be plenty of game coverage along with behind-the-scenes information.


If you want a chance to go to E3, there is a new sweepstakes launching today.  Between now and May 10, you need to go onto Twitter and tweet @NintendoAmerica a note about what the Legend of Zelda series means to you while using the hashtags #MyZeldaLegend and #NintendoSweepstakes.  A random fan will be chosen and can win the prize package of airfare for two, a hotel stay, tickets to E3, a $500 VISA debit card and most importantly of all, be one of the first to play and experience The Legend of Zelda on the Wii U.
