There are some years when Nintendo’s showing at the annual E3 Expo in Los Angeles leaves fans a little disappointed – but 2013 was not one of them. From Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze to Mario Kart 8 to the new Super Smash Bros. for both Wii U and 3DS, the reveals came fast and furious and especially delighted the old-school fans who’ve been following the company since the ’80s.

Mega Man’s reveal in the Super Smash Bros. trailer was the moment of the show for many. Do you remember your reaction, when you realized who that shadowy figure was, standing on top of that mountain? And then when he flew into action, and tapped into decades’ worth of Robot Master weapon data to attack Mario, Link, Kirby and Donkey Kong? It was one of the best E3 moments ever!

(Reminder to self: Write a post about the best E3 moments ever some time.)

Following the pattern for this series of blog posts, I’ve now added a new standalone Look Inside: Issue #4 page to the site for you to get some further behind-the-scenes info on the making of our fourth edition. Issue #4 has now also been added to the NF Store as a standalone download, too, in case that’s the one that’s missing from your collection. (Which I think may be the case for many of you.)

Keep it locked here on NFMagazine.com, as tomorrow we’re revisiting Issue #5: Pokémon Power!
