Nintendo execs fist-fight during E3 presentation

Mario Nintendo robot chicken E3 2014 news

Nintendo has just wrapped up their E3 2014 Direct presentation, and while it was jam-packed with game announcements and updates on works in progress, one of the highlights was certainly the epic battle between Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo America, and Satoru Iwata, CEO of Nintendo.

The two executives faced off in a CGI fist-fight, and then took the brawl to the Wii U to introduce us to the new Super Smash Bros.

Aside from a variety of Nintendo characters, the game will support Nintendo Mii avatars which means there will be a lot of variety in the fighting.

Additionally, Nintendo revealed its merchandising plans – their new Amiibo figurines. Like Skylanders and Disney Infinity figurines, an NFC chip can be scanned into the Nintendo Wii U and that character will be added into the game.

Sprinkled throughout the announcements were a bunch of Robot Chicken sketches involving Nintendo characters, which was a great laugh. Check out the full presentation below – Reggie and Satoru throw down right in the beginning.
