E3 has always been something that gamers look forward to and it’s very hard to determine what to expect. However, it should be an exciting year for Nintendo, and here's some predictions on what we might see.
My Top 10 in no order of importance I want them all...lol. (wish list) 1. Nintendo Switch Online blowout. Everything we can expect this fall, tell us if Virtual Console is ever coming. I expect an internet browser. 2. Metroid Prime 4 new trailer and release date. 3. Pokemon Switch trailer, game play (if it launches this year) and release date. 4. Animal Crossing Switch....because it's time the series got back to greatness. 5. A New IP announcement....last fall the Odyssey producer said they are working on multiple New IP's.... 6. HD remasters for Switch.....Super Mario Sunshine and The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword please. 7. Kid Icarus! 8. Retro Studio's secret project revealed..... 9. Mario Kart 9 announcement!!! Even just a tease.... 10. N64 classic mini, themed Joy-Cons like Game Boy (1989), GameCube, etc.... Of course Super Smash Bros. in depth, more information on upcoming games like The World Ends With You Remix. Many more games, games, games from third party as well as first....
Great list! Kid Icarus especially; I'd love even just a port of the 3DS one, since the multiplayer was so damned fantastic and gyro aiming would be a HUGE welcome change compared to the stylus or mere buttons.
The best games from the most respected gaming developers in the world. No other company matches the quality of Nintendo 1st party. E3 will be great and unforgettable thanks to Microsoft and Nintendo.
And Sony. I don't like the fanbase as much as I used to back in the early/mid PS3 era, because Sony's recent success has made a too-large portion of the fanbase mean-spirited towards anyone that doesn't place Sony first in their gaming hearts, but there's no denying that Sony themselves have been nailing it lately and have put out a LOT of quality content, as well as drawn it from others. Kingdom Hearts 3 is one of my top picks for when I get my own PS4 and I'm glad Sony has held onto their relations with Squeenix for so long, if only because it keeps KH coming.
@wmm Well said. I dont always agree with you but I respect your reasonable perspective.
Shin megami tensi and mp4 is all i need in my life... and for the love of god bring back a made for switch golden sun with a few new amazing i.p.
It is gonna be a very interesting E3 for Nintendo. So far there aren’t alot of big Nintendo games for this holiday, so I expect many new game announcements.
For E3 I'd say don't expect anything specific that the Publishers haven't already confirmed before the event, but I'm hopeful that we'll get the following: Metroid Switch gameplay and an indication of a window when it will release. The same for Bayonetta 3, Yoshi, and Pikmin 4, I think the last 2 need to get release dates. I think Pokémon for Switch will get details and gameplay before E3, same will likely happen with Smash, with both coming this year. Ports of more Wii U exclusives, like SM3DW, W101, Xenoblade Chronicles X and a remaster of the first Xenoblade could get announced. I would love a new Pilot Wings, Wave Race and F-Zero to get announced. I think that's plenty, but new IPs getting announced and other classic Nintendo franchises getting new games on Switch would be great. I don't think we'll get all of this, but a good selection of those things could happen IMO.
I have high hopes for them!
Netflix style VC and Metroid Prime 4 gameplay/release date is all I need.
I do think it will be Netflix styled. It will add more content to the classic games in some cases as well...like online play. It seems limited in selection by month though. But if this "Netflix" style can easily carry over to their next system(s) then it's better than having to wait for VC ports each generation I guess. As of right now only NES games are confirmed. I really want some GameCube..lol.
I'd love gamecube games if they were able to up-res them to 720p or 1080p kinda like Xbox One's BC. You'd think Nintendo would be able to have every game from Wii's and Wii U's VC on day one and then trickle out the rest after that.. but I dunno maybe there's licensing issues etc.
If they come, they definitely will be up-res as Super Mario Galaxy and Twilight Princess are running in 1080p in China officially licensed by Nintendo ...on Nvidia Shield hardware as we speak..lol. I am not sure if they are making an N64 classic but these classic systems are part of why VC as we've come to know it is not available on Switch. Maybe GameCube and Wii will not get classic systems and we can just get the games in HD on Switch. Or why can't they just do both classic systems and provide Switch classic games? Hopefully this E3 will clarify all this for us. :P As far as NES games go....hopefully we will finally get the first Contra lol! There is a rumor that Konami simply didn't list Contra on a Wii Virtual Console list and it got overlooked by Nintendo. So Konami assumed Nintendo didn't want that game to come....mamma mia!!! lol
a new mario game and a new zelda game as usual lol, and the crowd will say Nintendo won
New Smash is coming. That's going to be the HIGHLIGHT, for sure, right alongside the tournament stuff. Other than that, my expectations are an open book, but I'm hoping to hear about more exclusives and some high-profile third party collaborations. If they get Square to make either a port of Kingdom Hearts 3 for Switch or a new entry of the Bravely series for Switch, I'm probably going to get people yelling at me to shut up, due to how loud I'll be screaming the word "Yes!" repeatedly.XD
