A look at what Nintendo could have up its sleeve for this year's E3.
Lol, when did Nintendo steal e3? This isn't a show taking place in the early 90s. I can't even tell the last time I saw Nintendo on the e3 stage because they haven't had anything to show other than 1 or 2 games while the other gaming companies have had a lot of games to show. Other than smash brothers and metroid I can't even think of anything the fanatics would be looking forward to because Nintendo would have met their quota of releasing the rinse and repeat games they usual release most gens. Probably a star fox title but I can't see them releasing another Mario or Zelda game for another 4 or 5 years.
It's between Sony and Ms this E3. I think Nintendo needs a year or 2 before they can announce their big guns but they still will have few big games Metroid Bayonetta 3 Smash I think now more than last year Nintendo needs support from 3rd party publishers because a new zelda or mario isn't coming within next few years
@JaguarEvolved "Lol, when did Nintendo steal e3?" I know you joined this site after e3 2017 but they were seen as having the stronger show by most due to having the larger announcements despite expectations being low from their presentation being only 30 mins. "Other than smash brothers and metroid I can't even think of anything the fanatics would be looking forward to" Well then let's add Pokemon, Fire Emblem and Bayo3 to that shall we? So that's 5 high profile exclusives that we're hoping to see at e3 2018 and seeing as though the Switch has gotten pretty good 3rd party support I'll add that I'm looking forward to SMT, Octopath Traveller, Dragon Quest XI and Harvest Moon. Also don't act like there aren't games we're expecting to get confirmed soon like Pikmin 4, Animal Crossing or a 2D Mario game. Things are honestly looking good for Nintendo from a software perspective.
They won e3 a few years ago with one game and it was Zelda that stole the show and won it for them.
Your partially right Nintendo didn't STEAL E3 they won it fare and square.
@showtimefolks, At this point in time can we even call it a competition between those two? I don't mind Nintendo winning for once but I don't think that will happen this E3.
Eh. In real life we already know about most of what's coming to ps4 for the rest of the year because sony announces games years before they come out. Barring a ps5 announcement I could see xbox taking it from sony if they are playing it smart and bought enough games to show off. Nintendo however needs only show people a couple of the bombs we know nothing about on switch to take it. Can't wait to see the salt come back like it's goty season.
Ninty's live tournaments are fun.. ..but the tremendously long lineups to their booths can be a drag..😎
If Nintendo could reveal a new 2D Metroid game by Retro studio at e3 2018 I would be very happy
Fire Emblem (not Warriors) and a Pokemon game would kill at E3.
I ran in here to say just that. I would so love a new 2D Metroid game.
I dunno I'd rather the new Prime Entry I'd love to play using Gyro + R stick combo like I do on Splatoon and Doom
I was never a big Prime fan, but I do realize how popular the series is. I would not be mad at a new Prime but I wish Nintendo could provide two games, one 2D and the other a first person.
You just got a new 2D Metroid on 3DS last year.
You're right. But one thing I know about Nintendo is that they thrive on repeated successes. They normally like making games that have that has generated the most money(and success) for them in the past. Now don't get me wrong I'm not saying Nintendo is going to reveal a new Metroid game at e3 2018. I'm saying that what ever new game they reveal at e3 it's most likely going to be a game we all have grown to love.
Yeah but not on the switch!
Purchased switch over the weekend. Love it. My Perfect E3 would be Luigi's Mansion, Metroid and reboot of Eternal Darkness. A surprise by Retro Studios would definitely be the icing on cake.
A good E3 for me would be them simply announcing Luigi's Mansion 3 , Animal Crossing, Paper Mario for the switch.
Well Luigi's Mansion, unfortunately, isn't happening but I could see them showing off a gameplay trailer for Metroid Prime 4. Animal Crossing, Pikmin 4, or Pokemon would be more than welcome too.
I wouldn't completely rule out Luigi's Mansion consider the 3 DS got a sequel and also consider that a remaster is coming to the 3 DS so it's clear that Nintendo recognizes the series exist so who knows they might be gearing up for Luigi's Mansion 3.
They've already got a total of THREE big bombs they could drop, if they want to... Extensive coverage of Smash, Pokemon Switch, AND Metroid Prime 4. GAMEPLAY coverage. Dedicate no less than 15 minutes of trailer footage and major details to each game, one game focused on per each of the three days of E3, during a Direct in the middle of each day, followed by extensive after-show gameplay coverage via Treehouse after each 15 minute [or more] reveal. Even if the games are still in a Beta form, it would do WONDERS for them; that alongside any new game announcements on day 1 would clinch the win for Nintendo this year. I know it won't happen that way, but Nintendo's surprised us before now, so maybe something else equally exciting might happen.*cough*BotW 2*cough*
They don't need to do a BotW 2, they just need to finish BotW 1. After beating Ganon it still doesn't even feel like the game has even begun because the story is pretty much nonexistent. Offering a full expansion to actually finish the game would be nice.
The only way I can see that working is if they, once again, revived the "alternate world" idea from so many other Zelda games. I'd rather they make a Breath of the Wild 2, but have it function similarly to how Oracle of Ages and Seasons did. Different lands, intertwined stories.
They’d better be able to deliver with their online service. If they enable virtual console transfers, I’ll be happy.
Actually being there instead of doing a pre-recorded Direct.
Directs are way better than long awkward drawn out stage shows. A bunch of info in 30 minutes without the fat.
Except that's a false dilemma since there's another option; Sony hasn't done a "long, drawn out stage show" the last two years, it's an hour of game trailers with only about five minutes of talking intro. Streaming a video to people barely qualifies as participating in E3 when all the other companies are actually doing something live for the people who are there in person.
showing up. games.. thats it. I believe that this point in gaming many consumers already know whether or not they will purchase or like Nintendo published games especially considering the majority of the content they produced are of established properties. So I believe the perspective of if they could steal E3 comes down to whether or not someone even likes their properties or not as I don't really know if they're going to be able to convert anyone anymore than they could have any previous generation. So in order for them to steal any trade show I believe they need to reveal something made by them that most consumers would have never thought the company would produce to bring in new people. Let's say for example if it was a Nintendo that made something like Days Gone I believe it would be one of the biggest talking points because it's completely out of left field. It would almost be like trying to say if Electronic Arts could steal the show by simply just showing you properties you already know of by Electronic Arts like Madden or Battlefield. It's not saying they're bad games simply that they're so established it's difficult to really argue how they're going to steal a show. So something like Battlefield or Call of Duty or Madden is not going to steal a show because it's expected no different than Pokemon Mario etc. new IP, brand new acquisition etc I'm sure Pokemon would be a huge announcement but I believe it's only going to be a huge announcement for those who already like Pokemon in the first place which kind of makes it moot in regards to how they would steal a show if the consumers who like that content we're always going to like it anyway.
Talk about mario tennis for an hour and a half ... we disnt have enough info in the nntendo direct!
Actually show Pokemon, whether it is gameplay or a trailer.
A 2D Metroid game A new Earthbound/Mother game Virtual Console And any type of Japanese centric RPG's would steal the show for me.
Smash Bros, Mario Party, and Pikmin 😀
It might not steal the show at E3 but it would be awesome if they finally revealed Virtual Console for the Switch.
These would make an amazing Nintendo e3 for me. Metroid Prime 4 gameplay Pokemon announcment Shin Megami Tensi announcment/gameplay More info on Smash Bros Golden Sun announcment Luigis Mansion announcment
Whatever steals the show will be subjective When you consider the fact that most gamers have a bias. one thing is definite, Nintendo will showcase exciting content around the E3 period.
Retro Studios new game trailer. Smash release date and trailer. Metroid Prime 4 trailer. More info on Bayonetta 3 and the surprise announcement. More solid 3rd party announcements.
Announce Final Fantasy XIV and all it's expansions for the Switch. Hey, I can dream can't I?
You sure can. I dream of Luigi's Mansion 3, Mario Kart 9 and Super Mario Bros. 4 (a totally new engine 2D Mario game.) Dreamin' is fun. ;p
I believe it's more likely than not Square Enix expressed wanting to bring the series over to the switch you would also have to take into consideration that the game exist on PlayStation 3 so should have no problem existing on switch. could happen
Over their cheap WiFi card? With comparatively complex controller schemes (unless you just play DPS)? Only way I see this happening is if it's rebuilt for the switch and I don't see that happening.
3 days late but whatever. Seems to work fine on PS4 control wise, some tweaks would be needed, sure, but as far as controller layout goes, they're pretty similar. And even a cheap wifi card can handle FF14 these days, it uses very little data over a connection, around 8-10 megs an hour if I remember correctly.
PS4 has a much better wifi card and cheap PC wifi cards are not comparable to the poor wifi card of the Switch. Playing this game with a designated 5MB is passable, but not good. You need at least 10MB dedicated and the Switch struggles with that. The wifi card is worse than any phone wifi I've had in the last three years easily. Load times alone would be atrocious, loading world elements will be reflected in both detecting and then processing. The game on PS4 hangs up occasionally and it's a last-gen developed game. And you would absolutely need a Pro controller to be on equal footing with a PS4 controller. Don't see how you could play in small screen mode with the joycons the way they are. Even on PS4 it's difficult to play certain classes and deal with targeting. I'm not saying this as an aside, I'm playing it now on PS4.
Show the Core RPG Pokemon game first ever time in HD, show us Metroid Prime 4, Smash bros too, Bayonetta 3 and a few new reveals!! Nintendo has already won for me. Those first 3 games are enough in my opinion. I expect Sony to have a good conference, they always do. Dont really follow Xbox.
Pokemon switch, whit a new and innovative battle system and mechanics that makes the game closer to what we see in anime. Hard, but that would be epic.
they stole e3 before? How about showing us long overdue footage of a fully featured all out console pokemon game that puts breath of the wild to shame.
All they. Need to do for me is show off pokemon!!!
Again, lol. E3 from Nintendo will be more ports from the Wii U, Pokémon and Donkey, Smash.
does nintendo show anything anywhere besides Direct?
Animal Crossing. Just Animal Crossing.
Animal Crossing Switch and info on Fire Emblem Switch.
That is easy. E3 2018 do a triple megaton reveal of a real mainline Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon on the Switch. One of them releases this year. Mic drop.
Jist show some Metroid footage, Pokemon, Fire Emblem and give out online details and they win.
haha steal again?, last E3 Nintendo presentation was actually very sad , pretty sure this year will be the same cause you know its awful specs, still unless you get excited by some droplets of games well that's your call. ;)
No Nintendo never won E3 with their 30 min presentations smh.
I would like to see some unique stuff from 3rd party. Of course the usuals like a new DKC and smash but something really crazy like Mario vs rabbids.
Easy. Metroid, Bayonetta 3, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, and Smash footage. Top it off with a Fortnite announcement. I dare to dream of a remake or sequel to Link's Awakening. Also, I feel like "stealing" the show is a pretty clickbaity title. They don't need to "win" anything, just represent the brand as best as possible and drum up consumer and fan interest.
