    Nintendo will once again forgo a traditional E3 press conference and instead hold what it is calling a "Play Nintendo" digital event.

    On June 10 the platform holder will hold a special Nintendo Direct to share "further detail on the gaming experiences on the way for Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond".

    "Every year, Nintendo looks for the best way to show its games and share its news with fans, media and other key audiences," the company said in a press release.

    "The company is building on that approach at E3 2014 with the "Nintendo Digital Event," a new kind of video program that will reveal and provide further detail about the gaming experiences on the way for Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond.

    Additionally, it will be holding a Super Smash Bros. tournament, as well as giving fans the chance to play the game at Best Buy stores.

    "2014 will see the arrival of not one, but two new Super Smash Bros. games: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U," it continued, "to commemorate this occasion, Nintendo is inviting 16 highly skilled Super Smash Bros. players to the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles to compete in a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament.

    "Thousands of fans in the audience and countless more watching a live stream online will see new Super Smash Bros. characters clash with existing favorites in action for the first time. More important than declaring a winner, however, this event is a celebration of all things Super Smash Bros., and a great way for new and veteran fans to take part in a tribute to this legendary franchise. More information about the 16 invited participants in the tournament, the identity of the announcers, and how fans of the franchise can view the tournament in person and via webcast, will be communicated shortly."

    The latest Smash Bros will also be playable at Best Buy stores: "In 2013, Nintendo broke new ground by expanding its E3 activities outside of the walls of the Los Angeles Convention Center and letting fans play some of the games being played on the show floor at participating Best Buy stores.

    The partnership between Nintendo and Best Buy continues in 2014 and will mark the first time around the world that fans have had the opportunity to get their hands on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U."
    Finally, 'Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3' will give fans a look at Nintendo's biggest games of E3, with information "directly from the source".

    "The Treehouse, the Product Development department at Nintendo of America, will provide in-depth game demos live and unscripted from Nintendo's booth. This new program will be live streamed during all hours of the E3 show. Fans can get settled in, open their browsers and experience the Nintendo games at E3 like never before."
