Nintendo explains its (not-that-different) E3 plans

The more some things change, the more they stay the same. Two weeks ago, Nintendo announced that it would not be hosting its traditional invite-only press event at E3 2013. Now, the publisher has confirmed its alternate plans: Two smaller invite-only events, held in the same timeslot.

Two major differences: These smaller showcases will be held at the Nintendo booth on the show floor, prior to the expo’s opening, and it’ll give the media a chance to check out the games before anybody else.

This year, Nintendo is taking a different approach to E3. We’re giving you the chance to get closer to the games through a unique hands-on experience at our booth before the show opens.

Once the Expo has opened, general attendees will be able to get their grubby mitts all over all the unreleased games, and we’ll have a full report.

Nintendo has also confirmed that COO Reggie Fils-Aime and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto will be at both pre-show events, and games on show will include a new Mario, Mario Kart and Smash Bros.
