Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata, will not be attending the E3 2015 this June. A Nintendo representative has confirmed this and added that Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Mario and Zelda, and other Nintendo developers will be attending the event.
According to the representative:
“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.”
So while Mr. Iwata will not be present in this year’s E3, he will still be watching the event all the way from Japan to make sure Nintendo’s showcase goes through smoothly.
