Nintendo E3 Digital Event is 30 minutes long says Nico Nico


Nico Nico, the streaming site that will be showing Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event on Tuesday in Japan says that the event will last 30 minutes for them. You can check out the listing on Nico Nico yourself here.

Before you go crazy and worry about Nintendo puling off a good E3 event with only 30 minutes there is some history to consider.

Nico Nico could be using this as a place holder. I believe Twitch is estimating that Nintendo’s event will last an hour. Last year’s E3 Direct lasted a bit over 40 minutes.

The Smash Bros Direct in April was said to be 30 minutes as well on Nico Nico and it ended up being 39 minutes in the end. So it looks like Nico Nico does a lot of rounding with their show length estimations.

Hopefully Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event is longer than 30 minutes. I felt last year’s Direct was a bit too short and I personally would like to see it last an hour. Then again, a fantastic announcement filled half hour might be better than a boring, heavy handed hour though.

We’ll have to wait and see on Tuesday how long it goes!
