Anyone else hoping for a Zelda 3DS reveal tomorrow?

I was very disappointed. I think, for once, Nintendo misread the E3 audience. The fitness and singing games should have been left for the roundtable and other announcements — very few people watching E3 care about those games. They could have been announced via a press release. I just didn't see a single unexpected thing other than Nintendo Land, which, frankly, is a "meh" title for me. Worse, they merely announced (afterward, no less) that all of these titles will release within the "launch window." That could mean we get one or two good games and then wait months for the rest. I needed to hear, "Wii U will be out in five months, with three killer first-party titles available on day one, including one unexpected title." And, other than in Pikmin, I didn't see a single thing that led me to believe that the game pad will provide anything that can't be accomplished via a traditional menu or overworld screen. Granted, I know it has the potential for great uses, but the bottom line is, I saw nothing that made me feel like I HAVE to have this on launch day so as not to miss out on a minute of fun.

Well it was upgrade my pc in a few months or buy a wii U at launch now even though nintendo direct was impressive its going to be a while after launch before I pick it up and I dont like the family playing with others concept that the wii u is heavily centered around.

You want a model E3? Nintendo keep checking back to your 2010 presentation. It was amazing.


This. 2010 was thee' ultimate Nintendo E3. The way they presented everything was just so exciting. SOOO many suprises like Kirby's Epic Yarn, DKCR, Golden Eye 007, Miyamoto playing skyward ect ect, coupled with the insanely hyped reveal of the 3DS. Nintendo's 06' E3 was fantastic as well where they came out full blazing with their major introduction to the Wii.

Yet their 11 and 12' E3 offerings have been completely dissapointing....Where's that fun nintendo magic or spark? Not here folk! It's like Microsoft or apple took over and decided to make everything genreic, calm and too buisness-like.

I agree WaveBoy. I didn't mind 2011's E3 conference, it was far more interesting, especially with the whole Zelda orchestra. However this year was all 3rd party... why? This is Nintendo's presentation, not Warner Bros., Ubisoft's etc.

You third parties, p*** off, if I want to see your games I'll see your presentation.

Pretty bad, this actually make me lost even more confidence in the industry in a whole.

Almost all of this E3 is movie/corridor shooters, easy and basic games, sequels without any innovation.

Is there anyone making games anymore, I mean one where you lose and die, one where you have a challenge?



I can't see the problem.

They showed us pikmin mario and even a "super smash" minigame collection.
And they seem to be expanding their audience from "just fans and casuals" to "everyone"... Which is good.

Also, I can't wait to see the 3DS one tomorrow.

I'm pretty sure its happening...anxious to see what they're gonna do here.

I hope it's a new Zelda (but no touch screen movement please) but I'll take Majora's Mask if I have to. I dislike Zelda but there are a few gems in the series so I look forward to seeing if a new Zelda turns out to be a gem.

I'm not holding out for the 3DS press conference but we'll have to wait and see... maybe, just maybe, they'll show us something that will spring us out of our chairs, launch us into our screens and stare in amazement that Nintendo have made something truly wonderful.

But after Nintendo's fiasco yesterday, I highly doubt that...

I'm not deflated. E3 wasn't a disappointment. We learned that we can use two GamePads with the system, that Pikmin 3 is coming out, we've got a new Super Mario coming our way, incredible last-gen titles such as Mass Effect are making their way over to Nintendo, NintendoLand (a possible in-box title) is going to teach us how the GamePad can be used, Lego City Undercover is coming out (and it looks incredible), and Nintendo is still Nintendo.

Amongst all of the cheesy jokes and violent titles, Nintendo remains the company that tries to give everyone something they want. Some people just can't be pleased, I guess. I mean really. For the past 6 years, YOU ALL have been saying NIntendo should do EXACTLY what they did at E3. Now that they have actually done it, you would rather them have another "underpowered" system that has all of your favorite Nintendo titles and nothing from third-party developers that isn't shovelware? No, we haven't heard of a Metroid, StarFox, or Zelda yet. It isn't like the few games we've heard of are going to be the only games that come out for the Wii U! That's another area where you guys messed up. You whined and complained when 3DS didn't launch with a good Nintendo title. Well now we've got New Super Mario Bros. U and Pikmin 3. "OH, BUT THAT'S NOTHING UNLESS WE ALSO GET THAT METROID-STARFOX CROSSOVER THAT PROBABLY DOESN'T EXIST!!"

Not to mention, while all this was going on, you seem to have forgotten about the NIntendo DIrect. They talked about so much with that! Our new GamePad, Nintendo's next voyage into online, and even a more traditional controller!

I'm still pumped for the Wii U. I might even get it DAY 1. Who cares if launch titles are ports? That just opens them up to a wider audience. Who cares that we didn't see Metroid? It's coming later.

I own a PS1, GBA, GBA SP, Wii (GCN), 360, 3DS, PC (Laptop), Wii U, and PS4.

Nintendo had a lot of stuff to show, and they still do so I can see why they did how they did it. A lot of you complained earlier, not giving any specific names but were disappointed (from the previous E3) because they reveled a few first party titles that were not going to be coming out at launch or near it. I specifically herd someone say, "why reveal them now if there not going to give us a release date, or release it way later". Well all the games they showed were launch titles, or near launch. There's a right time to show a game.

hopefully tonights 3ds confrence will be better

i am hades true leader of the underworld. i must bid you ado


Before the show I was excited about the Wii U because we already knew about Pikmin 3 and New SMB and that they were probably going to be launch titles. Games like Rayman Legends, what is now ZombiU and Wii U versions of things like Arkham City and Assassin's Creed 3 are all things that I was interested in but I knew about them before the show also.

My complaint, and I'm sure it's everyone else's complaint who is complaining, is that there was nothing else. To quote myself from April in another thread:

Get realistic, people.

  • Lego City Stories
  • Rayman Legends
  • 2D Mario
  • Pikmin 3
  • Built-in Chase Mii and Battle Mii

The title of the thread is "perfect launch lineup?" not "what do you think the launch lineup will be?". Quite frankly your list is far from "perfect" and if it was just that I'd be struggling to find a reason to get it at launch. That makes it less than perfect given that... there have been launches where I HAVE wanted to get the console at launch. The Wii's launch lineup was more perfect than that because Wii Sports was interesting and Twilight Princess is Zelda.

If you want realistic then here goes:

  • Lego City Stories
  • New SMB Wii U
  • Pikmin 3
  • Bundled software including a couple of new ideas
  • Darksiders 2
  • Assassin's Creed 3
  • Arkham City
  • Metroid Prime 4
  • Battalion Wars 3 (done like a proper RTS)
  • A huge third party surprise... like GTAV or something

While I wouldn't call that perfect I think that's both realistic and enough to make me want to get a Wii U. If the best game is New SMB? It's going to have to be doing something pretty damn amazing to convince me.

and that is why I am disappoint

Even if right at the end they said "here's a trailer for insert bombshell and you can expect it some time next year" I would have been a lot happier...... but I think I've said enough on this. I just don't understand why people are trying to defend the absence of any real new announcements. :S
