Nintendo streaming Legend of Zelda Wii U on June 14 during E3


Nintendo will be doing something very different at this years’ E3. The only game that will be playable at their booth will be the upcoming Legend of Zelda game, which is slated to release in 2017.

For those not able to attend E3, the Nintendo Tree House will be holding “a day of live-streamed gameplay of The Legend of Zelda.” Nintendo says it’ll “be the world’s first in-depth look at the game, which will also include commentaries by Nintendo developers.”

Of course, while the game is planned for a simultaneous release for the upcoming NX platform, Nintendo has confirmed that it won’t be showing anything related to the NX, which does come as a big surprise since it will launch in March of next year.

Fans will be able to watch the live stream live on Twitch.TV and on June 14th starting a 9 A.M. PT.

Nintendo will also bring one lucky fan to E3 where they and a companion will be able to play the game directly on the show floor via a Twitter contest. The winner will receive airfare for two, a hotel stay, tickets to E3 and a $500 prepaid Visa debit card. The contest will run until May 10th, and fans can enter by sending a tweet to @NintendoAmerica. Let them know what The Legend of Zelda series means to you, and make sure you also hashtags #MyZeldaLegend and #NintendoSweepstakes. For all the details about the sweepstakes, visit
