E3 is basically for announcing several products of Nintendo like consoles. In the year 2013, Nintendo didn’t opt for a press conference, but thought of giving information in the form of pre-recorded videos to streamed news and live audience about the products.

On the May 31, presentation of Nintendo Direct would be seen for Japanese Audience. The information would be about release of their products in that particular region. The presentation would be done by the CEO and President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata. A Digital Event has been scheduled by Nintendo on the June 16 at E3.

The news about Wii U is expected because the predicted sales weren’t met. Original Wii was very successful owing to its friendliness towards adults and children alike with learnable menu and configuration and easy controls.

However  Wii U touchpad wasn’t as user friendly and so it didn’t help. People who were new to gaming had trouble in grasping it.

In Wii U, a touchpad is used and in this era, it isn’t a good idea. There are problems seen in Nintendo 3DS as well from competitors due to its slicker design and new look.
