Nintendo Announcing E3 Plans Tomorrow – New Punch-Out Game Teased

by Kyle Hanson


E3 2015 is right around the corner causing every gamer across the world to wait in anticipation for big game announcements and news. Nintendo fans won’t have to wait too much longer though as the company has announced that they will reveal their E3 2015 plans tomorrow at 12pm Eastern Time. Nintendo has been shaking up the E3 experience lately, opting for pre-produced Nintendo Direct videos instead of the traditional press conference. Expect this to continue this year, but possibly with some extra flair.

Nintendo has an uphill battle ahead of themselves as they try to capitalize on the small amount of momentum their Wii U platform has going for it. Many big franchises have yet to hit the console, with fans waiting for new installments in F-Zero, Starfox, and Metroid. Of those only Starfox has any game officially in the works, but a new possibility is being discussed due to a bit of a tease in the announcement today.


The picture that came along with the tweet, which can be seen above, as well as the text itself, hint heavily at a new Punch-Out game, which could be coming to Wii U or 3DS. “Who’s training for E3?” along with a man (possibly Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime) in the pink sweatsuit from the game in a boxing stance in a gym really push the connection. Of all the Nintendo franchises that fans have been waiting on, Punch-Out isn’t really high on the list, having its last entry released in 2009 for the Wii. However, it could be a great addition to Nintendo’s already growing lineup of stellar titles.
