Nintendo E3 Conference: Done & Dusted

Ok so E3 is just a few weeks away and looking at Nintendos currently announced lineup for the rest of the year its looking pretty bare with hardly anything being released by Nintendo themselves. Obviously they are keeping most of their titles secret and will most likely announce most of the games they have planned for the rest of the year at E3. So what do you guys think will be shown and announced? Personally Im expecting a new Pikmin and F-Zero game, plus a 1080 game that uses the Wii Balance board. I also hope that there is a new Starfox game on the way also that actually keeps Fox and co in the cockpit and no more on foot sections. Also we will hopefully see something new from Tokyo EAD (Mario Galaxy) and Retro Studios.

I'd love to see a new pikmin game but I'd be surprised as the second one sold poorly. Animal crossing will be a cert as will something new in the wii fit/brain training mold. Might get a wave race/1080 or pilotwings too. Oh, and a punch out game.

Animal Crossing, Wii Music and Kid Icarus.

This. Those'll be the big three - one for the casuals, one for the fanboys and one which appeals to both. Maybe a couple of balance board WiiWare titles, too. New downloadable exercises/minigames for Wii Fit as well, probably.

And a Wario Ware title that uses the remote and balance board called Wario Ware Wiggle 'N' Waggle.

:(

I would gladly pay £200 for Pikmin 3.

Ich auch. I've read somewhere that Miyamoto hasn't yet decided what he wants to do with it yet, though. I think it's very much at the planning stage, so I'd be surprised if there's anything at E3.

Kid Icarus being made by Factor 5 is pretty much 99% sure (going by hints dropped by IGN).

Animal Crossing is a cert. F-Zero apparently too.

Im pretty sure Miyamoto said he would like to create a Pikmin game for the Wii.

When was the last Kid Icarus released?

Seriously, does anyone really care about a sequel? It was nearly 20 years ago for Christ's sake.

I predict a poor F-Zero, a poorer Starfox, an amazing Animal Crossing and a load of other crap nobody cares about.

EDIT: Though a fantastic Pikmin 3 wouldn't go amiss! :(

As much as I love them, I hope there's nothing to do with Mario, Metroid or Zelda. I want them to bring back an old underused IP or come up with something else.

I also want a hard drive so I can start buying VC games again.

Well the next proper Mario game is going to be a good 2 or 3 years off yet and most likely be released on Nintendo's next format. Metroid 3 I think will be the last we will see of Samus for a good while yet (although I hope Im wrong) as Retro has been moved onto a new project and a new Zelda wont be for another 2 years either, although some footage or an announcement could possibly be made this year.

As for the hard drive, we will get one eventually but in what form no one knows. Personally I think nintendo will drop the bomb and announce an ipod type HDD only device that serves as a hard drive for the Wii but also allows all VC games to be played on the go with Game Boy and GBA games being put up onto the Virtual Console service. With this it wont be competing with the DS and it would solve the Wii's storage problem, could also be the relaunch of the Game Boy brand.

If there is an F-Zero I hope they bring it back in house and get some of that X magic back.

Pikmin has surprised me by it's non appearance so far, it's a year an a half in and no sign, honestly I'd pay full price for a WiiTooled version of 1 and 2.

I don't get the love that the Yanks have for Kid Icarus, I suppose you must've needed a NES back in the day to have fond memories.

An interesting suggestion, but not one I see happening - in that form at least. GB and GBA games can easily be done on the wii* and the DS could easily do all of what you propose with a official storage cart (perhaps a boot rom for the ds slot and a gba cart for the actual storage). While Nintendo originally said the DS was not the "next game boy" I very much doubt they would introduce another platform now especially considering how well the ds has done.

*They could easily recycle the GC's GBA player disc to a Wii standard and package it with VC roms. Recent movements in the hacking scene show this to be very easily done. Give it 6 months and the hackers can have it going themselves

Kid Icarus is a terrible game, it's the worst purchase I've made from the VC. That said, a sequel wouldn't be anything like it, but off the back of Pit appearing in Brawl it could gets lots of exposure. It'd basically be a new IP for Nintendo.
