E3 Predictions 2013: Nintendo

It’s never ideal to lose exclusives, it’s even worse when you’re a brand new console just bursting on the scene. Now with Rayman Legends and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge going multiplatform, and several other third-party games mostly backing the other consoles, it’s become hard to justify a Nintendo Wii U purchase. (Bayonetta 2, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Wii U)

A new IP developed by Game Freak? Wasn't such a thing being released in 10 days? Oh that's right, it is. I don't get why everyone complains about Nintendo not making new IPs, although it's not the majority of what they do, and they don't do it nearly as much as other companies do, they still do alot.

I think Nintendo will have a really amazing E3. There are a lot of games we know are coming in the second half of the year with plenty more that are sure to ve announced.

I find it idiotic to judge a console just on the first 4-6 months, its that the case, all consoles would have been terrible, there is always a software drought after lunch. As for the 3rd party stuff, it has been an issue since the N64 and nintendo is still here, i do feel that Nintendo is trying to get more support but a lot of devs are kinda biased and wont even try to release their games. But there are always going to be some great 3rd party effort and amazing 1st party games. And as a multi console/PC owner, i dont have to worry about 3rd party games anyway

What I find exciting, is that instead of Nintendo focusing on hardware this year, they will be focusing on games. All games. Lots of games. And that's what we all want at this point, so I think it will be great.

I have no doubt this will be an E3 to remember. I hope it surpasses the Twilight Princess reveal years ago. Seeing the trailer as well as the crowd reaction was amazing. I too expect Retro to reveal that they are working on another Metroid game. They did such a great job on the Prime series and I hope they continue to support the series in some way.

They really need to bring it this year.

Hopefully Nintendo will have the VC with remote gamepad play up and running by then. Thats the one thing that has pissed me off since day one about the Wii U.

The April update is supposed to not only be about speeding up the OS but adding VC service at least for NES and SNES software. Other than that I've heard nothing more.

Cool. Thats a start. Hopefully it'll be the complete library. Would love to see earthbound added but I highly doubt it

I really hope they show off an F Zero game, a Star Fox game, and a Punch Out!! game. I know that's too much to ask for, because we're gonna see so many announcements of games we already know are gonna be there. Like the brand new 3D Mario Galaxy successor, Bayonetta 2, HD Wind Waker Remake, Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei, Retro Studio's next game, Monolith Soft's Xeno-sequel, Super Smash Bros. 4, and the HD console Mario Kart, but I still think it could happen.

Nintendo could outsource F-Zero to SEGA like they did with GX on the GameCube, PunchOut could be a gorgeous HD arcade style eShop download with brand new and creative boxers to fight with added gameplay elements that add to the core mechanics of the game, and I could think of a million things they could do with Star Fox with the power of the Wii U, but most of all I want online dog fights.

On top of that all, they've mentioned that brand new IP's will be revealed, and there could be some out-of-nowhere 3rd party exclusive games kinda like what we saw at the 3DS's E3 where they showed an exclusive RE title.

And I want Nintendo to show that the Wii U will get 3rd party support secured. Most of all, I really want Retro to be working on a Metroid title for Wii U, and I want there to be a 2.5D Metroid title in development on 3DS.

I also hope they re-release HD Nintendo packs for Wii U. Like a Mario collection with Galaxy 1 and 2 in HD, a Metroid Prime Trilogy HD collection, ect., ect. I really want their presentation to be an hour and a half, because it felt like 1 hour was way too little at last year's E3 and like they could've announced more stuff.

This is gonna be Nintendo's most epic E3 yet. Hands down.

If they show something new from Xeno, they have won the conference for us intellectuals.
