E3 2014: Nintendo Opens E3 Digital Event With Robot Chicken Greatness

Nintendo opened their E3 digital event with something a bit different this year. Instead of Reggie Fils-Aime, or even Reggie FilsAMech, we were instead greeted by a stop-motion cartoon Reggie, in the style of Robot Chicken. It set a playful, self aware tone for the conference; Reggie powered up with a fire flower and set a loud Mother fan on fire, Mario was outraged by the NOA President’s declaration of no new Mario games on the day, and Wario and Ganon threatened to take over the show. It was an interesting, off-the-wall approach for the Japanese company, and a very unique way to kick off a very important day.
