Fifa and Skyrim would be amazing from 3rd party side.

potatoMax2417d ago

I hope EA keeps it's promise of making Fifa a dedicated game and not a poorly executed port.

--Onilink--2416d ago (Edited 2416d ago )

Im guessing they could show:
Mario Odissey
Fire Emblem Warriors
Pokemon Stars
Smash Bros
Xenoblade 2
Animal Crossing
Pikmin 4
Fire Emblem Switch
Some kind of party game(mario party or wario ware)
Some new eshop titles

And for 3rd party titles
COD (assuming it gets a port)
Maybe some of those rumored collaborations with Ubisoft like the Rabbits/Mario RPG or BGaE 2
New Shin Megami Tensei
New Yokai Watch
That weird Square RPG
A Switch port of Monster Hunter XX
No More Heroes 3
A bunch of indie games

And just to dream a bit, once it looks like its done, fade to black..and boom, new Metroid game from Retro

If they show 70% of that (most of which we already know are coming), plus a couple of new surprises, it will be a pretty amazing E3

potatoMax2416d ago

Great list, we can only hope for. I believe an Animal Crossing would make a pretty big splash, fans have been waiting for years. There hasn't been much in years ( minus the welcome amiibo update, and spin offs ).

A metroid game would be terrific, but not sure if Nintendo would do this at the E3 and not in a separate event?

For 3rd party support, I am almost convinced we will see Story of Seasons and Stardew Valley running on the Switch.

The 10th Rider2416d ago (Edited 2416d ago )

I think Animal Crossing might be saved for next holiday season. Next Level Games and Retro Studios have been long been working on projects, so maybe we'll hear something about one or two of those.

I think we'll see:
Mario Odyssey
Fire Emblem Warriors
Pokemon Stars/Eclipse/Whatever
Zelda DLC
Xenoblade 2
Pikmin 4
Fire Emblem Switch
Next Level Games' Project and/or Retro Studios' Project
Some kind of party game (Mario Party, Mario and Sonic at the Olympics, etc . . . )
Maybe an Animal Crossing or Miyamoto's new character he was going to create.

All in all not a bad lineup.

potatoMax2416d ago

It's a pretty neat list, however, too many " big " games - Pokemon, Mario, Pikmin in one conference could become an issue. Like Apple would never introduce a new iPhone, new macBook and it's self driving car in one event.

Theres also the Animal Crossing Smartphone app that was announced over a year ago and has since then never seen the light again, only for it to be delayed twice.

Pikmin 4 is proabbly sure to be shown at E3.

hellothere19772416d ago


that analogy doesn't work. even if apple wouldn't showcase phone, Macbook, iCar, etc., it's for totally different reasons. those are all different types of standalone items that has their own market.

Nintendo's whole plan is to sell their console so people would buy software. the best way to get someone to buy the switch is to announce as many games as possible, so people can see the support and eventual game production. if they have REAL GAMES COMING OUT FOR CERTAIN (no scalebound crap to fish people and not release), it's in their best interest to announce those games ASAP.

The 10th Rider2416d ago


I dunno though, Mario is a shoe-in for being there, the Pokemon rumors and hints are too convincing to ignore, and Pikmin 4 was already nearing completion a while ago. Titles such as Xenoblade, Zelda DLC and Fire Emblem Warriors are all coming this year. I can see them keeping quiet on Fire Emblem Switch and the Zelda DLC for the time being. Pokemon may not be coming this year, so maybe they'll hold that close to their chest, but it'd be weird considering how (even if it doesn't release until next spring or summer) the mere announcement would send Switch sales through the roof and make it an incredible hot seller during the holidays. Announcing Pokemon would really give confidence to their investors, too.

indyman77772416d ago

Great list Since NBA 2017 and NBA 2018 is already coming I think they will also show those

Disgaea 5 Complete
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Speci.
Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of In
Toejam and Earl: Back in the Groove
Project Octopath Traveler
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Syberia 3
Shin Megami Tensei: Brand New Title
No More Heroes 3
Dragon Quest X
Dragon Quest XI: In Search of the
Beyond Good & Evil 2
Dragon Quest XI: In Search of the

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory2416d ago

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is First Party.

_-EDMIX-_2416d ago

As Otaku has pointed out, Xenoblade 2 is a first party title.

"The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Speci" ?

Skyrim has not been confirmed to be the Special Edition.


Makes zero mention of being the Special Edition. Mind you, it is Bethesda that words those descriptions, features etc.

"Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic"

Nothing about Special Edition.

"Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, Skyrim Special Edition brings"


"Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, Skyrim Special Edition brings"


They removed those terms and title for a reason. It has something to do with Skyrim simply being a port of Skyrim as suppose to a remaster, special edition etc.

"Beyond Good & Evil 2" ??? lol

I just don't know where you've received this information from. Some of what you posted are not "CONFIRMED GAMES".

DigitalRaptor2416d ago

New Metroid Prime and F-Zero games, please.

Now is the time!

_-EDMIX-_2416d ago

Ask for Metroid Prime,

Nintendo be like "Federation Force 2"


I only want Animal Crossing and a Paper Mario, a Metroid Prime would be sweet though.

MorpheusX2415d ago

Coon Alert Coon Alert

Dialing 911:

Operator: Hello?

MorpheusX: "Yes , I have an emergency to report?,,There's a Black Man running around N4g.com in a White man Bodies, Like in "GET OUT" the Movie

Operator: OMG!!! What's his location, he's gonna need emergency surgery to transfer his black brain back into his body.

Luucifa2416d ago

Metroid please, it's my only desire!

Atomicjuicer2416d ago

If they had a 2 hour long conference booked and just walked out and coughed *metroid* and then left I'd strongly consider that as winning e3.

potatoMax2416d ago

lol! so true, any step up from last year would also be a win, and that by no means is a challenge. Zelda is an amazing game, one of the best, but focusing the entire e3 around one game. not again - please.

Super Mario RPG review - ChristCenteredGamer

CCG writes - "I have to say, the original game was a fond cornerstone of my childhood, and this remake brought back some very fond memories. I cannot recommend this game any higher, it is worth its purchase price and remains a lovable classic. Morally, it's suitable for almost any age and nothing I'd be afraid to get a child as a gift. "
