Considering Nintendo's limited upcoming lineup, gamers have known that Nintendo must have something big in store for this year's E3. Fans were teased with a plan to announce a "gamer's game" at E3, but much more can be expected at this year's E3. Nintendo's Marc Franklin has confirmed that "will be announcing several new titles that core gamers will be interested in around the time of E3." Mr. Franklin also addressed the current third-party situation, noting, "Look at the plans being made by third-party publishers. They realize that Wii is the current platform of choice in this generation, and their bottom lines depend on appealing to the largest base."
