As for the "FAR too many games that we already know about" bit. What games? There's X, Bayonetta 2, Smash and what, Yarn Yoshi, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem? Maybe one or two 3DS tites if we happen to include Mario Golf? Maybe Zelda if we include that as a "not-new" game? Lets just ignore the fact that at an average E3 Nintendo will talk about ~20 Nintendo published games. If they only have one or two more games then this would be the lightest E3 for Nintendo since 2008. Somehow I doubt it.

If you expect 20 games in an era where Nintendo has been struggling to release new games in a reasonable time frame, you're completely delusional. Nintendo is not going to show off that many, they probably have their hands full with the games we already know about. Now what are those others you asked? The games that have not been formally announced, but hinted at. Zelda U is confirmed to be shown off, there's a Pikachu detective game being released in 2015, a new Mario game in development (Mario Galaxy 3, I guess?), possibly Miyamoto's IP and/or S.T.E.A.M., Pokken Fighters and Metroid if we're lucky. That's about 10 or so games, I don't think we'll get much more than that.

This has been doing the rounds online source code from the Nintendo E3 page, could be more announced then we first thought though this should remain rumor for now.

As others have said this is just there to get the site to show up in people's searches. It also has Wii at e3, you think they'll show new Wii content? Probably not. You think that Nintendo will want people searching for wii to land on that site? Definitely.

Yes I know it could very easily be that which is why I used the word rumor and speculated it could have something to do with QOL in a later post, the new Wii content could easily be the new Skylanders game just saying.

@Jazzer94 Why would Skylanders need a new game? They can just expand endlessly on the existing one. And I kinda doubt they'd show off new figurines at E3 when they have plenty of other things to talk about.

From wiki, notable (whatever that means) Nintendo games shown:
E3 2010: 24 shown, biggest games were probably Skyward Sword, DKCR
E3 2011: 14 shown, biggest game was probably 3D Land but they also announced Smash Bros
E3 2012: 10 shown but apparently 23 Wii U titles in total shown. (BTW, ZombiU? Rayman? Not Nintendo games )
E3 2013: 17 games shown, including Pokemon, Zelda 3DS, DK:TF, Kart 8, 3D World, Smash....

about 20 or so

It kinda isn't, if you add our lists together and maybe a little bit of a buffer for a couple of 3DS games we just listed about 15 or so games off the bat. After that you say that we're only expecting maybe one or two surprise announcements? Well there's your "around about" 20 games already.

EAD itself produces between 5 and 10 games itself each year. Then there's Retro, Intelligent Systems, Monolith Soft, Creatures who all average about one game a year +/-. Then when you consider the fact that they'll probably talk about all of the games for the next 12 months plus a few extra that could be a bit further away. Maybe about 3/4 of the games between E3 and 2 years after?

Then ontop of that the possibility for talking about some games from third parties. Third parties I think can and should count sometimes. Eg I would count the talk about Rayman Legends at E3 2012 as a "Nintendo game" but I wouldn't have counted Assassin's Creed. Plus we already know about Platinum with Bayonetta 2, that counts, but maybe we'll see something from Level 5, Capcom, Sega? Not unlikely.

I think it's delusional to think that it won't sit fairly close to ~20 games.

I quite like that Nintendo's deciding to do their own thing rather than just going along with what everyone else does.
Their online presentations work really well for showing off games and are really exciting to watch when the big announcements are there, and run a lot smoother than the stage shows (when there's no issues with the stream).
Also just the fact that they're calling it a "Digital Event" and not a "Direct" has me a little curious, it'll be interesting to see exactly how they go about it.

@UGXwolf They announced a new entry recently which will be on Wii so there is a.possibility that it could be shown in a highlight reel which is why Wii is listed.

meh, it's a bit of a stretch. Outside of Just Dance, Disney Infinity and Skylanders there hasn't been much of note on the Wii since ~2012. Mario Party 9 was the last Nintendo published title on the Wii that broke 1mill and that was two years ago.

Yarn Yoshi needs to be in E3. It's been more than a year since we last saw it. More than a year! Surely they have something new to show us in that length of time?

They kind of said that Yoshi will be there in the video. Look at around 4:00.

I've noticed lately that Nintendo likes to release news in the mornings.

I don't know about you, but I'm liking Nintendo's single-game Direct approach with surprise videos more and more with each one. I'm more interested than ever about what the Digital Event will be like.

@blast
I think it's likely Retro's new project will be shown because they said they already had it in development. We might not see the game itself for another year, but I think it's safe to say we'll at least get a quick trailer or a few screen shots.

@cookiex: I'm also hoping we get to know more about Monolith's 3DS game.

I can't wait to see what 3DS games get talked about/announced as well.

@Webhead definitely. What they should have done was have a wii u direct and a 3ds mini presentation at e3, that way they could try both mediums and see which one works better for future e3s.

I'm thinking the best has already come for the 3ds though. Awakening, x/y, ACNL, Uprising, 3d land, ALBW, and all those eshop games are going to be hard to top. However, there's probably a few really good titles left in them for this upcoming year. Maybe a 2d metroid game, a new game and watch gallery, or warioland. Starfox and F-Zero would be nice too, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
