E3 2019: Nintendo Discussion, Predictions, Reactions, and Analysis

  • @dmcmaster i believe a link to the past and mario world were found in the data mine of the latest update

  • @ff7cloud Link to the Past, Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, and Super Mario World if I recall.
    Would be interesting to see a LttP and ALW get a dual pack.

  • @dmcmaster I read ps4 also has a $200 sku, might be a collector's edition for a multi platform game

  • I know a lot of people are sick of ports, but I'd still love the Prime Trilogy and the Zelda HD Remasters to happen! I'd also really like to see some more Kid Icarus. I remember Uprising being really good, and it'd be great to see that series continue, even if it's just a remaster of Uprising. My huge never-gonna-happen dream, as always, is a remake of Mother 3 (HD2D Octopath style?), or even just an EarthBound trilogy. Maybe one of these years it'll happen.

    In terms of what I think is actually gonna happen, I'm not expecting too many huge new things. We already have Luigi's Mansion, Link's Awakening, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem, and Town as far as I can remember. Of those, Animal Crossing is what I'm most excited about. I'll most likely be happy with whatever they show, but I really hope we can see some change in the scale of the series. If we're stuck with the same sized maps as New Leaf and we still can't move the camera, I'll be a little disappointed.

    If we do get any reveals for new big things, an Odyssey 2 is becoming less of a longshot to me as time goes on, Pikmin wouldn't shock me, I think adding SNES games to Online is likely, and I also don't think a Zelda tease is totally out of the realm of possibility. Even though they're primarily only announcing games that will release within the year, I think Nintendo is also fine with have one or two long-term announcements at a time. I'm still trying to figure out what I'd want from the new big Zelda, but in general, I'm hoping for something similar to what Majora's Mask was to Ocarina of Time in relation to Breath of the Wild.

    Oh yeah, and Sora for Smash please

  • They better do Luigi's Mansion 3 justice by showing some gameplay or something after that flat announcement trailer.

  • @bam541 Definitely needs another trailer, but I also hope they don't show too much. Those games are kind of small, and anything they show is ruining that content for when you play it. Might close my eyes if the trailer goes on too long.

  • I'm honestly surprised we haven't gotten a remaster of Kid Icarus Uprising.

  • @dmcmaster I'm not, because Sakurai is busy killing himself for Smash. That remaster really needs to happen though.

  • @mbun
    Not like Nintendo couldn't hand it off to that studio that did Twilight Princess HD or something.
    Although I'm sure Smash is the reason we haven't seen a sequel.

  • @dmcmaster said:

    Not like Nintendo couldn't hand it off to that studio that did Twilight Princess HD or something.

    DO NOT hand that game's port job off to the studio that did the absolute worst Zelda port to date.

  • Will Doug Bowser bring the heat to this E3? probably not, but here are my long shot predictions anyway:

    25% Chance:
    Super Mario Odyssey 2
    Monster Hunter Stories 2
    Sonic Mania 2
    Tomodachi Life 2
    new Ace Attorney game
    Bravely Third

    1% Chance:
    Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars 2
    Donkey Kong 64 Remake
    Super Bowser Odyssey

  • I'm not a fan of ports but I think the only thing I hate more is mandatory motion controls. So I'd be very cool with Metroid Prime trilogy, Galaxy 1 and 2 and Skyward Sword ports with the option to use a regular controller.

  • @e_zed_eh_intern Some of those would have to be reworked completely for that. I think of playing Wii games on Dolphin where you have to hold a trigger to enter pointer mode to drag it around with analog. That level of goofy.

  • My final set of predictions were fun to come up with as I think Nintendo can do a LOT of things, but these are what I settled on. Again, from least to most confident:

    Bayonetta 3 will have a gameplay trailer
    Luigi's Mansion 3 will get a subtitle & an October date
    Link's Awakening Remake dated for September
    Animal Crossing will be the primary focus, both for the Direct & booth design
    The next Smash Bros. DLC fighter revealed & shadow-dropped. I'll go so bold as to say it'll be Dante from Devil May Cry

  • Direct is rumored to be about 45-50 minutes long.
    If true this is gonna be a meaty direct.

  • I'm just super happy for Damiani right now. The way that Zelda reveal got him pretty much shocked and hyped at the same time was great to witness. :)

  • And that Duck Hunt troll was just brilliant, man it took me by surprise. Laughed out loud. :D

  • Wow. What a show! Nintendo has come along way since the Wii U days.

  • Okay Nintendo. You win.
    Still waiting on that F-Zero tho.

  • So that Dragon Quest Smash trailer had me hyped as hell, like seriously bravo on bringing in multiple hero's.
    The Banjo reveal will go into memedom soon enough (especially the Duck Hunt bit)
    Breath of the Wild 2 HYPE LEVELS INTENSIFYING, also Gannondorf?
    No More Heroes 3 Fucking Excited, especially if it continues building on the Suda-verse that Travis Strikes Again was building (also it would be a damn shame to not have the Killer 7 be a boss battle)
    Resident Evil 5 and 6 on Switch, not all that exciting but hey it's more RE on Switch, and maybe it's my imagination but maybe the trailer was sorta building up to RE7 on Switch (like a proper port, not the streaming version)
    I am damn curious to see how Witcher 3 runs on Switch, at the same time I can now play Witcher 3 in my bathtub while Gearlt is in a bathtub.
    Spyro on Switch is an awesome addition.
    Another MS owned title popped up on Switch (Super Lucky's Tale) very interesting to say the least
    Also Expansion Pass for Ultimate Alliance 3, so all the X-Men stuff we've been seeing is from the DLC or are we getting a handful of essential X-Men and more via DLC?
