E3 2016 Day 5 Blog – When the Zelda Booth Won Everything
E3 2016 Day 5
Hello everyone and welcome to the last day of E3! Our feet hurt.
We started off the day at the Nintendo booth for our appointment to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We had a 30 minutes hands-on session with the game on Wii U and a tour of the booth by Andrew Collins, Communications Manager of Nintendo of Canada. The game looks amazing! We are so excited for it!
The Zelda Nintendo booth was hands-down the best booth at E3 this year. It was phenomenal. The booth contained 140 game stations to demo The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, real trees and grass, atmosphere changing lights from evening to thunderstorm, a cathedral, and several figures. We will have a video out soon with some sweeping shots of the booth, but in the mean time, check out the photos below. Without an appointment, the line up to enter the booth and get hands-on time with the game was up to 3 hours. We left with a very special limited edition The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild gold coin, included in the gallery below.
Yes, Nintendo won.
The rest of the afternoon was spent filming content for a video on the best booths at E3 2016 (aesthetically, not for games). I don’t want to spoil the upcoming video for you, but our list of top booths is pretty jazzy! Make sure you are subscribed to Tetra Ninja so that you don’t miss this video.
By the time we were done shooting, it was 5:00 PM and the show floor was closing. We went out for our first real sit-down dinner where we could relax. We went to Fleming’s Prime Steak House and Wine Bar in downtown LA. We had some unique cocktails that were very good (Blueberry lemon for Nic, and peach cinnamon for me). We both had caesar salads that were one of the best we have ever had. We had steak, mashed potatoes and asparagus for our main. Nic wasn’t a huge fan of the steak because they were cooked to be a bit crispy on the outside, but I really liked that. The sides were average. For dessert we had their special, a chocolate lava cake to share. It was also average. Overall, the service and atmosphere was very good, the food was good, and we would likely revisit.
After dinner, we headed back to our hotel to do some work. We plan on going to Universal Studios Hollywood tomorrow- so stay tuned for that blog! Thank you for reading! Talk tomorrow!
