Nintendo Enthusiast: The E3 2012 Nintendo press conference is only two weeks away. Join us as we predict exactly what will go down in the Nokia Theater.
I really hope Nintendo wow's me! Sony has done a great job, but I'd love to have a reason to go out and buy a Wii U. Give me an F-Zero, a Metroid, or a Smash Bros., and consider your console bought Nintendo.
Im putting a lot of hope on Nintendo. A little nervous about what the Wii U will have to offere but its an excited nervous. lol
Please localize Monster Hunter and Fire Emblem: Awakening
Wow. That would be an awesome show if true. It sounds feasible too (except maybe the new 3DS model. I don't think they want to release a new one yet and piss off consumers.)
It's actually fairly likely to happen. Almost a given in my books.
I don't know... there are like 3 or 4 games that allow for a second stick, and none of them require it. Unless they really want to push wiiu/3ds connectivity or a crap ton of dual stick games are announced, it really isn't necessary and may actually be more harmful than helpful. Furthermore, the 3ds is forecast to be profitable starting in or around September. A redesign would increase costs, making this return to profitability less likely.
I know it will happen soon. I just don't think they will show it off during their e3 conference. I mean, they were so worried about fans getting pissed when they did a price drop last year that they gave everyone 20 free games. I don't think they'll want to repeat that amount of flak only one year later... I expect them to reveal the new 3ds anywhere after holiday season. That sounds like a good time imo...
I knew I held off on buying a 3DS for a reason...
I think the only thing that could make me buy a wii u after the wii would be a new & good metroid - unlike the last one.
Nintendo will own E3 again...unless Sony and MS announce the PS4 and 720.
Such an announcement would probably be similar to last years wiiu unveiling... So even that may not be enough to outperform Nintendo this year.
I would like new great 3DS games being announce @E3 this year. I'm already looking forward to a couple but it's all Mario so far! :P
A new 3DS with 2 analog sticks built-in i sign for this one !! :)
Hmmm.... close, but with one problem. Nintendo won't focus THAT much on 3rd parties. This is THEIR show, and they know that they need to bring it themselves to be take seriously. Expect a good deal of 3rd party announcements, but when it comes to details Nintendo has always allowed/preferred 3rd parties to speak for themselves. Nintendo knows they have to prove they can lead and guide their consoles place in the market, or else those very 3rd parties would just fall apart. Expect also plenty of localization announcements(harvest moon, FE, MH3G) even if only in passing, like a montage of names. Along with details and confirmation of awaited 1st party games like animal crossing and Luigi's mansion, along with a few surprises(golden sun, anyone?) Basically, expect their presentation to be what Sony has been doing for the last month and a half: announcements and confirmations, except with details to follow throughout the week instead of at the conference.(that's what the June 6th presentation is all about, after all.) Oh, and no 3ds revision(expect that announcement after the holiday season has passed. And I think there will need to be a lot of games or another really big reason to force a second stick revision... which could happen at e3, so it isn't totally out of the question then, but unlikely.)
Nintendo feels it's of the utmost importance to show that third parties are supporting the system. I think that that is their top priority right now, and therefore it will be something they focus a lot on throughout E3. They have to prove that finally third parties are taking them seriously.
Yes, but I think the depth of the content will be 1st party. 3rd party content will be present in force, just not with great detail. The respective parties will provide that info; ubisoft will be showcasing and detailing its wiiu support the day before, for instance. Why spend their own conference reshowing what ubisoft has already showcased themselves? Nintendo has also stated that they need to be a strong presence in order to drive hardware. After the weak 1st party 3ds launch lineup, they know they need to keep providing and come out strong to be taken seriously. Their conference can't ignore 1st or 3rd party efforts: it needs a proper balance of both. I believe they realise this, and will come out swinging in both regards. ....aaaughhh.. hurry up, June 5th... I needs mah Nintendo [email protected][email protected];
My body is ready.
Not a bad write-up. Most, if not all of that is definitely possible. I hope it goes very similar to this. Great job.
