The lights are on
Nintendo is getting a jump on E3 by holding a surprise Nintendo Direct Conference Sunday afternoon.
The Nintendo Direct stream will be here at 3 PM Pacific Time, and Nintendo is promising new information about the Wii U. Nintendo's official E3 conference will be held Tuesday at 9 AM Pacific Time. I'm guessing the event will only last as long as it takes for Saturo Iwata to come on and say, "first," and then sign off.
Here's a picture of Nintendo's decision makers getting excited for E3 that just posted to Nintendo's Facebook page. I'd like to think that Shigeru Miyamoto and Reggie Fils-Aime are shaking hands, and Iwata was suddenly overcome with jealousy and tried to get involved in the handshake as awkwardly as possible.
