Nintendo To Broadcast E3 Conference

Nintendo has announced that it will be broadcasting its E3 expo conference live on TV and through several web services, to allow everyone not attending to keep up to date with the latest Nintendo news.

As well as showing off its new toys through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and, the Japanese gaming giant will also be providing live coverage through Spike TV and MTV2.

"We don't want anyone to miss the energy and excitement of this year's E3 Expo," Nintendo of America's vice president of Corporate Affairs Cindy Gordon explained. "By offering different ways to tune in and follow all the Nintendo news, we aim to make fans all over the world feel like they're right there with us at the show."

Nintendo's showing, set to take place on 5th June, is expected to have a very next-gen Wii U focused show this year, having debuted the touch screen controller at last year's conference. This time around gamers will be hoping for some demo gameplay with the new console, as well as showing off the ways that the new tablet control will alter gameplay.

While Sony and Microsoft won't be showing off any next-gen systems if rumours are to be believed, they will need to do something quite special to not be completely outdone by Nintendo. Chances are the Xbox maker will have some new Kinect update, while Sony could further push its Vita platform.
