E3 2013: Preview of Nintendo and it’s Secret Weapon

There’s under two months remaining until Nintendo will front up to E3 with it’s back against the wall with other new consoles being revealed and discussed. Nintendo always performs at it’s best when it’s threatened and there is one secret weapon that’s been very quiet for a couple years. Something that could really bring the Wii U back from it’s testing launch period and that’s... (3DS, Industry, Wii U)

One game is supposed to go up against ps4 and the next Xbox? Dude get out of here !

Don't forget the games that follow the NEW console. Wii u will be irrelevant during e3 if they don't pop up with new Ip's that have potential. The industry has all eyes on Sony and Microsoft. Nintendo messed up their head start.

Your right Sony will show a game system that has pretty visuals and it will have 50 games at launch it will be $200.00 or less with a cool eye toy that smashes the kinect. Unlike the Wii U touch screen we will have our same controller with a tacked on touchpad. That my friend is innovation at it's best and as killzone showed we killing anything out there.

^ So mad.

Mad at what exactly? I'm just living in your fantasy world.
dboyc310  +   906d ago
Fantasy world?? No one is expecting a price of 200$ or less. Remember the 600$ price tag. Graphic wise the ps3 provides the best graphics on exclusive games from the 3 console manufacture. Don't see the fantasy world your talking about? But yea stay in your fantasy world where Nintendo wins E3. When has it won it? Stay optimistic because that's what most wii u buyers could only do. Can't wait for e3 to come around to see what excuses you guys make.

This may be the best E3 ever as everyone has promise of excitement.

MS - new Xbox
Sony - more details on PS4
Ninty - Having to find a way to combat both and gain some spotlight

"Something that could really bring the Wii U back from it’s testing launch period and that’s Retro Studio."

Retro Studios has really got me more intrigued than anything.

Esp. since the game was showable last E3 but RETRO Studios
angrily demanded Nintendo not show it.

Then all of the hirings of talent from other studios like Naughty Dog.

It's either going to be very good or bad, because the hype is too strong.

You don't know that, it might have not been ready.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   905d ago
I agreed with you because you are right (in a way)

To Reggie it was ready and Nintendo it was ready to be shown.

That means a lot, because Nintendo has said that they don't like showing games early because it can generate early negativity.

To Retro the game wasn't ready to be shown. So yeah, it wasn't ready in their opinion not Nintendo's opinion.

i expect one of them is going to f*** up big time so here are my expectations so that i won't get disappointed

sony: they will show PS4 games that would be better as a movie
nitendo: the big game announcements will be nitendo land 2 and wii sports 3
M$: usher the experience coming to both the 720 and 360
kirbyu  +   906d ago
Retro's game will either be a Kirby/Metroid crossover or Marvel Vs. Capcom Vs. Nintendo Vs. SEGA Vs. Namco Vs. Nickelodeon Vs. Mortal Kombat.

Although it might just be Metroid Prime 4. Who knows?
rick1woller  +   906d ago
some of you guys have lost it: kirby metroid cross and nintendo land 2??, have a word with yourself. I just got a wii u after being sick to death of FPS on the PS3, half way through crysis 3 I couldnt take anymore(awful game). Wii U is fun, first time in a long time a game has made me smile(nintendo land). Zombie U shows why the 2nd screen is useful and enjoyable if you play it long enough. Also I can play wii games ive never played e.g metroid trilogy, which look much better on the wii u.Nintendo will be ok
skyrimer  +   905d ago
Good luck to the WiiU, it really needs it, either Nintendo announces 4 or 5 surprise must haves for this year christmas, or I find it hard to believe it can be saved.

Nintendo rules the effing WORLD. The competition is already getting manhandled by the unstoppable juggernaut Wii U. Come this E3, PHony and Microsoft might as well pack it up and go home because with the arsenal of great Nintendo titles that will be shown off will embarrass them. NINTENDO 4 LYFE!!!!
