Earlier today, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata took to Twitter to discuss why he will not personally be present at E3 this year. Hereís a translation of Iwataís tweets:
[Iwata] Good morning, everyone. E3 is finally starting. E3 is the games industryís biggest trade fair, which takes place once a year in Los Angeles. From today on, during E3 Iíll be tweeting using the Nintendo Official account with the hashtag #Iwatter.[Iwata] Because of the operation I underwent in June last year, Iíve become a little thin. My weight has more or less remained the same since I left the hospital and it seems as though Iíll be able to maintain this figure, so I decided to update my official Mii to reflect my present condition. Please be kind to it.[Iwata] With the exception of last year, Iíve been going to E3 every year. However, as thereís no new hardware to present this year and considering the fact that a general meeting of shareholders is planned for the week following E3, I will remain in Japan this year. My role at E3 this year is to relay everything happening at E3 to everyone thatís in Japan.
