E3 2015 : Nintendo Direct & Treehouse

Nintendo showed off a nice selection of games at their Digital Event but revealed no big surprise.  It was nice to finally see Star Fox 0 in action plus as a 3DS owner it was nice to see a few new games coming to the console.  I was disappointed that there was no focus to bring any exlusive titles to the New 3DS but you never know what is around the corner.  For a company who is struggling with their home console they did not annouce a show stopper - yes Star Fox was great but it is no Zelda.
