Nintendo Announces E3 Plans



  • no announcement for the announcements skit video this year is total bullshit.


  • Banned

    We show Mario and Squid rori's.

    Prease be excited.



  • Not anticipating much from this, but watching nonetheless. Mario will be good, but forget about fan favorites like Metroid, basically.



  • Hopefully the focus on 2017 titles falls somewhere between that and Sony's announce games before they even exist model.

    Remember, Smash 4D, Pokemon, and the Rabbids Mario thing could very well be out before November, and the Zelda DLC needs to be. One assumes they'll at least announce Retro's game for 2018 as well.



  • I have a feeling Nintendo will be about 10% Stealth drops (VC, and some indies), 60% Late summer-December releases (WiiU ports, other VC titles, third party stuff and major first party stuff) With the last 30% being stuffing releasing in January up to early summer, with a few possibly becoming fall 2018 titles



  • I can't wait to be severely underwhelmed.



  • Only thing I'm disappointed to hear about is it sounds like they're downplaying their tournaments this year maybe? The wording is kind of weird, like they're running the tournaments out of their E3 booth instead of a stadium for it like the past. If that's how it is, they probably won't be as big events as they were in the past, with their own announcements attached.

    @Musou-Tensei Last year Treehouse was pretty great. They showed way more footage of the games people cared about and announced a couple other decent ones.



  • No, @Mbun, the Treehouse stream was very clearly rancid. It was borne of trash and baptized in the gutter. It's not like they just streamed a new Zelda game or anything, no. All trash ;)

    I guess they're just cutting costs of being at E3. Hiring out another venue for two tournaments must be pretty expensive.



  • I called it, Splatoon 2 tournament. Now we just need Rabbid skits during the presentation.
