Posts 1 to 20 of 39


". You’ll be able to try out four unreleased Wii U games, exclusively at participating Best Buy locations."

From Nintendo's E3 site:

What 4 games do you think we will see @ Best Buy?

There's a Pikmin silhouette below the sentence so I'm going to go out on a limb and guess Pikmin 3 is the first one.

The other three? Hmm... I'll guess the new 3D Mario, Mario Kart U, and... The last one is tricky, but maybe Yarn Yoshi?

Definitely Pikmin and Mario U. Possibly MK8 and and maybe Wind Waker? Definitely not Smash Bros.

My realistic guess is The Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, New Super Luigi U, and a 3rd Party Title(maybe Rayman Legends).

I think it is going to be some more expected titles and no so much of those hidden titles we are all waiting for. I hope I am wrong but trying to stay realistic. My optimistic side says:

Mario Kart U, The Wonderful 101, Retro Studio's Game, and Sonic Lost World

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Bavkwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Meh. I'm interested to see what the games are, but any guess is really farfetched.
They might not even have Pikmin 3, W101, or Zelda WW since those are coming out sooner than later, and we've already seen SOME of what the games are.
The best case, IMO, would be Mario Kart, 3D Mario, Retro's game, and a surprise, or maybe Smash Bros. Yup, one of my possible guesses is a surprise.

Toon Link was a silhouette in the background when I went to the site so I'm pretty sure we'll see that. 100% sure actually. @ShadJV said he saw a Pikmin silhouette so I'm pretty sure we can pretty much confirm those two.

I'm going to take a wild guess here and say that Smash will make an appearance. Maybe we'll see 3D Mario U/Mario Kart U but neither have been announced yet so it's hard to say. But it IS e3 after all so it'll probably be more likely than not that the fourth game will be an unannounced one.

So my guesses are
1. Pikmin 3 (almost positive)
2. Wind Waker HD (also almost positive)
3. Smash Bros. U (and 3DS I guess)
4. Unannounced game (Mario Kart, 3D Mario, maybe even something from another series like Metroid or Donkey Kong..who knows)

Mario characters are plastered all over the Best Buy webpage for the Nintendo E3 experience, Mario Kart and 3D Mario are playable at E3 itself, and they're going to be giving away Luigi freebies at the Best Buy events, so I say it should be guaranteed they'll be there. Plus, what sense is there to not allow demos of games from two proven best-selling series to be at such grand opportunities?


Idk what games!!! I live in Australia but I can't wait for windwaker HD I've actually never played a legend of Zelda game so I'm really excited!

I think Wind Waker is likely given how hard they are pushing it already

Other three will probably be Pikmin 3, Mario Kart and the 3D Mario. As people have said. I'm skeptical about it being something entirely unexpected given how much more or a risk leaking would be for something unexpected. Best Buy dude says "saw the demos for Wind Waker, Mario Kart, Mario U and Pikmin 3" people shrug with it being small-ish news. Best Buy dude says "saw the demos for Metroid Prime 4, F-Zero U, Kid Icarus and Star Fox" interwebs implode and they just spoiled E3

I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually push these demos out to the Wii U demo kiosk things. What they announced was US only but that doesn't necessarily mean we won't get it. It just means that's the way the US are getting it

The silhouettes that appear are:
A yellow Pikmin
A flying Pikmin
A Rock Pikmin
The main hero from The Wonderful 101
Luigi on a Yoshi
Toon Link
and Mario, Luigi, and Starlow.

That last one makes me doubt that these are hints to the demoes; rather games that are already announced that will be shown off more during E3.
I'm hoping each demo is a game that is announced AT E3.

Pikmin 3, 3D Mario, Mario Kart, and either Wind Waker HD or Wonderful 101 are my best guesses.

I'm secretly hoping for Smash Bros., but know better since it'd be far too early. Always up for a surprise though.

Biggest Pikmin fan on NL!

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

Pikmin 3
Super Mario U
Mario Kart U
Windwaker HD

I also wouldn't mind there being demos of The Wonderful 101, Yoshi's Yarn, New Super Luigi or Sonic Lost World though.



I'd rather they just give us the Demos to play on our Wii U's, but whatever. I guess I'll take the hour drive...

My favorite part about gamecube games were the sunshine and clear water on super Mario sunshine! windwaker remake looks really nice the grass, sky everything but I was wondering my favorite part about games is the water so will the water be crystal clear and have coral reefs I know it's a weird question but do you guys think it will?

Ooooooo, it's a mystery! xD Gotta love it, can't wait to see the Nintendo Direct and what games will be available at Bestbuy, regardless of what's available i'll still be going.
