Nintendo will finally be revealing its E3 2015 plans tomorrow, the company has confirmed.
Looks Nintendo is going punching the competition again at E3, huh?
Fingers crossed for Pokemon X2 and Y2 at their showing. I loved Pokemon XY but it needed some more features and post game content, if they do that then Kalos will be my fav region
It's Punch Out for the Wii U.
Maybe a real pokemon rpg for the WiiU? Dont get me wrong, I enjoy the N3DS, but gaming on the go has been taken over by phones and tablets, would enjoy it more on a bigger screen.
Hopefully they have an ACTUAL presentation this time around those directs just don't do it for me. ;)
@ Kepler = Anybody who is serious about gaming doesn't do the majority of their gaming on an iphone. THAT = fact. Mobile gaming has not replaced handheld gaming because it doesn't offer the same games, it doesn't offer the same controls, it doesn't offer the same level of quality music, it doesn't even offer the same visual quality half the time either. They are two separate things. The Problem is some people can't think of more than two things at once, so they need everything broken down into two things to make it easier for their mind to manage. They make the mistake of acting like THAT is actually reality though. * Mobile gaming doesn't matter to 90% of real gamers. Even female gamers that are serious about gaming don't even do majority of their gaming on mobile. * People who otherwise wouldn't give videogames the time of day.......THOSE people play mobile games. Corporate executives sitting on the toilet inbetween meetings. THOSE are the people who play mobile gaming as a majority of their gaming. Not JUST that...but just examples. * Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft are going to give solid E3 presentations. Nobody is doomed......thier is NO Gloom... Just good news for a lot of gaming fans everywhere.
I thought 2013 was a total failure but they really bounced back in 2014, especially compared to the comptetition. No CGI trailers, no multiplats (not that there are any, but still), no 20 minute demos where they walk around and try to be all cinematic and all that crap. Just games and the passion behind those that make them, and a little humor intermixed. The question for this year is: digital event or stage show? The digital event guarrantees no flubs and a concise run time. The stage show guarrantees more exposure and live crowd feedback.
Honestly so far it has been mainly about PS4 and the X1 when it comes to gaming. The Wii U needs that certain exposure which they can only get from an on stage presentation as oppose to playing it safe behind a Direct. ;)
Sorry Nintendo rented a theatre for their e3 presentation months ago.
@LOL_WUT "Honestly so far it has been mainly about PS4 and the X1 when it comes to gaming." So then why has Pokemon X & Y, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros., Yokai Watch 2, Super Mario 3D World, and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire sold more than 99% of PS4 and Xbox One games? And why does the 3DS still outsell the Xbox One and sometimes sells on par or better than the PS4? All about PS4 and Xbox One? Not only is that opinion vague, its factually wrong.
What do you get from hype and cgi? Better game nope... its truly is sad you believe hype is more important than games. Something is wrong with gamers to believe this. This is why I like nintendo they didn't buy into hype first. I actually get my money's worth with their games. Sure not everyone likes them but not everyone is a gamers also. That is ok.
Lol!!! I was totally wrong ouch!!!!!
As long as they don't have the level of third party support as the competition ... they honestly won't be winning in the minds of the average core gamer. Can they show the best exclusive content? Sure. But not the quantity OF quality games. They are just ONE publisher vs everyone combined.
You mean average casual gamer. 75% of the video game market is casual gamers.
@ Gordon ... it depends on what you call a casual gamer. I said Core gamer ... not hardcore. In Core I believe you have the hardcore, and the gamers that only buy the sports titles, big racing titles and the mass marketed shooters. Those are your core gamers imo ... as in the core consumer for video games. A true casual gamer to me is the type that might buy a Guitar Hero one year and skip the rest until 3 or 4 years later. Or the type that only plays a game if free like they are on IOS/Andriod or buys maybe 5 games tops for a system and usually buys them only when they are on a huge price drop cuz they don't see the difference between this year's new edition compared to this older addition, etc etc. THAT to me is a true casual. If someone consistently buys Madden and NHL video GAMES every single year or Call of Duty/GTA every single release ... they are a core consumer of games or rather ... CORE GAMER imo. Maybe not a hardcore gamer just based on these purchases ... but a core gamer that gaming publishers target their games/consoles to attract. Agree?
@ Loadklip A casual gamer IMO is a person that makes their gaming purchase on impulse and what is hot in the media. They don't really think must before their purchase because they game casually. Most games fall into the casual category. Games that don't are Dark Souls, Shovel Knight, and a number of indie games.
"Games that don't are Dark Souls, Shovel Knight, and a number of indie games." I consider those more in the hardcore side as there are MILLIONS of gamers who can play Call of Duty or Madden all year long and never once touch those games.
How do you explain how many people bought these broken games at record setting pace... hardcore gamers don't buy based on sales and hype. We buy dreamcast and other dead systems. It's just nintendo is the only real console maker out. I'd love to get a hardcore ps4 with great 1st games that show up 3rd parties. That hasn't happened yet for me. You are best called pop gamers because you buy just like pop music listners. You don't play for substance. It's fine but you are not core. I'm mean can you even beat a super nintendo game? What about nes... do you have any skill as a gamer at all? If you can answer no then you are a pop gamer. You wouldn't understand what a core gamer or hardcore gamer would want. It's ok but insulting to call your self a core gamer if you are not truly a gamer or just a mere colector. Yet if you are going to put down nintendo let it because they they made a bad game. Otherwise you are enabling the collapse of this industry.
nntendo need to get with the program and actually attend the event with a stage presentation. doing a glorified nintendo direct on e3 day isnt good enough. we all know all the devs are put under stress to get stuff ready for e3 and it disrupts their schedules, but the stage presentation makes for a great show. what nintendo did last year was just lazy. cheating. perhaps lack of organisation and preparation disguised as something new and interesting for e3.
Screaming fans at a Smash Tourney perhaps? ;)
Yeah 4 hour demos with no crash... multiple tourneys. Live streams to bring E3 to your house... are you a Web site editor or an industry clown?
You're entitled to your opinion (obviously) but last years presentation was both critically and publicly acclaimed, you're in the minority here. Surely the aim is to convey your upcoming plans to the public as clearly and effectively as possible - which the E3 presentation did in spades without any of the crashing, embarrassing silences our outright weird crap you see in the other presentations. In an industry filled with nerds and introverts, whoever thought it was a good idea to do a live presentation to the "world" in the first place was either a masochist or a comedy genius.
Let's see then:)
I'm really hoping they do exactly what they did last year. It was absolutely amazing, and they provided completely in depth looks at the actual games; showing actual gameplay. The direct + treehouse was a winning combination.
I cant wait mama Nintendo to hear news!
New punch out? Cmon Nintendo lets go big this year.
Let's see if they hold a press conference
right, they need to comeback with having a presence at e3, i like the directs but at E3 they need to have a conference rather than a direct imop
they already confirmed NX and mobile games wont be at this e3
Donkey Kong Prime... Retros new 3D FPS. I called it first!
Retro Diddy Kong Racing 2 Wiz Pig's Revenge. Lol!!! I really just want to see the graphic overhaul of Devil's Third! How's about some release date's??! Retro Eternal Darkness Wiz Pig's revenge!!!
If they announce Metroid I will be the happiest man on earth
Me too...its one of the reasons I stay Nintendo! Number 1 IP for me!
The spaceship the Drake in Pikmin 3 look's very much like a Metroid!
Nintendo Direct. I just don't see them taking the stage at E3 when they don't have a lot of content. Hopefully they do a stage show next year when they announce the new Nintendo console. I don't mind the Nintendo Directs, but it's not the same thing as the big E3 showing.
You're assuming they don't have a lot of content with very little if any logical basis. Don't do that.
The fact that they only showed 12 games last year, and they are winding down the Wii U. It's also common knowledge that they don't get very much third party support, and no Zelda is going to be shown. Seems like a good assessment that they'd save money and skip E3 this year again.
oh Bethseda must have tons of content coming then
"I don't mind the Nintendo Directs, but it's not the same thing as the big E3 showing." Yeah, Nintendo Directs and especially last year Nintendo's show destroyed Microsoft and Sony's boring ass shows. "Seems like a good assessment that they'd save money and skip E3 this year again." Nintendo didn't skip E3 last year. I was there. Their booth was just as big as Sony and MS's booths, they rented out the same theather they used for a press conference in past years to host a Smash Bros tournament. And they streamed content for hours on end with the Nintendo Treehouse. Nintendo was at E3 in full force, way more than MS and Sony. And NIntendo actually provided content FOR BOTH systems, unlike Sony ditching the PS Vita and showing off a ton of multiplat games like Destiny and No Man's Sky. Quality over quantity dude. Go back and look at all the 2014 games on PS4 and Xbox One. Most of them at E3 were busts, while Nintendo's 2014 games killed it in sales and metarankings. Nintendo's E3 costs were about the same as they have ever been. Your statements are baseless and full of assumption.
Well said. Bubble up! I couldn't stop watching the treehouse streams. I only stopped to take a break when Mario Party came up. It's truly the way they should all do their shows, stop giving us CGI trailers and show us some actual gameplay for a change.
We don't even know what content they will be showing in terms of new games. Satoru Iwata, did confirm recently that there are unannounced Wii U titles to reveal that will be coming out some time before April 2016. In terms of previously announced titles, we're still waiting for our first look at Star Fox, we've only seen Devil's Third once as of last year's E3, so we'll get an update on that. Fatal Frame 5 and Xenoblade X are without release dates as are the other games mentioned above and both are still planned for release this year. Yoshi's Wooly World is currently scheduled for fall, so we're waiting on a more specific release date, though Europe gets the game next month. Masahiro Sakurai may reveal which third playable Smash Bros character was chosen by the public to be included in the game as future DLC, . Studios such as Next Level Games is due for a new game announcement, so we may get one at E3. Retro Studios probably won't be ready to announce a new game this year. Nintendo will probably include our first look at Bandai Namco's Project Treasure, a free-to-play action game with 4 player co-op. It was first revealed as a teaser trailer back in January 2015. We'll naturalyl get a 2nd trailer for Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei which is due out this winter for Japan, but likely not until 2016 for everywhere else. It wouldn't be surprising if Tecmo Koei has a new Dynasty Warriors X Nintedo IP cross over project given the commercial success of Hyrule Warriors, but likely for 2016 release. We may also get a console port announcement for Namco Bandai's Pokken Tournament, which probably won't be out until 2016. It's hard to say what new games 3DS will have. We know of the Fire Emblem sequel, but it is only releasing in 2015 for Japan and 2016 overseas. Rhythm Heaven is coming to Japan this summer, so maybe it still has a chance of releasing in NA and Europe by fall.EAD Tokyo said it is working on a new Super Mario game back in 2014, so perhaps that game is for 3DS, especially when Miyamoto said there is no new 3D Mario currently planned for Wii U and likely won't be until the next generation.
HYPE! HYPE! HYPE! HYPE! It's so weird, just a few minutes ago I was saying to myself "Nintendo's probably gonna announce their E3 plans any day now."
Can't wait for them to spit in Earthbound fans' collective faces again with a new Robot Chicken skit. It is the only attention we get. Maybe they can hock a fat one in Golden Sun, Last Window, F-Zero, Metroid, and the rest of the "Not Mario/Zeldaverse" fans' faces too. On the bright side, Star Fox wiped his face off and stood up. Looking forward to that at E3.
My body is ready like yesterday.
When we're talking about consoles, please stop mentioning 3DS and Vita. The Wii U is a strong 3rd place and will continue to be no matter what games coming out.
