After more than two decades of gaming reveals, news, and entertainment, E3 is officially dead, as attempts to revive the struggling convention over the past few years have proven unsuccessful. This announcement comes from a post on the official E3 webpage and Twitter account by the Entertainment Software Association, reading:



E3 has been an integral part of the video game landscape since 1995, delivering some of Nintendo’s most monumental reveals. Some of my favorite include the debut of the Nintendo DS, the “Everyone is Here” reveal from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the introduction of amiibo, a stunning Breath of the Wild experience, and countless other amazing game announcements. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to walk around one of Nintendo’s amazing booths, you know just how special these events really were.



E3 wasn’t just an event for us; it was an opportunity for everyone to come together and celebrate gaming. While it has had its ups and downs over the past few years, it will be sorely missed by everyone here at Nintendo Wire.
