This. E3 will happen, but just like it took until the holiday of the same year for more good games to come out again with the 3DS, there's a good chance that were probably gonna need to wait until then for whatever does get announced at the conference. At least this time we have more and better games to hold us over(last time we pretty much only had OOT3D which was an updated port of a Nintendo 64 game, but this time we have Monster Hunter, Rayman, Pikmin, etc.).

Ever heard of E3 ya dinguses? E3 announces AAA titles (Here's to Metroid Prime 4 & Super Smash Bros 4) and people go "welp I have no choice but to buy a Wii U!" like what happened with the 3DS.

Nintendo have recently adopted a policy of not announcing games until they're fairly close to release.

That being said, I think the main worry should be directed toward 3rd parties. We all know that Nintendo will release a ton of great games over the Wii U's life.

@pntjr - Yeah, that's what WILL happen. It happens all the time; people proclaim Nintendo 'dead' because their new console isn't flying off the shelves. Then, they all collectively soil their pants upon seeing the new Mario/Zelda/ Smash Bros./Metroid/whatever, before Nintendo's stock quadruples and their console begins to sell like hotcakes. Repeat ad nuseam.

Slightly off topic; I was thinking the other day...what would you guys think if Nintendo adopted a radical rule for their next console - that is, no Mario. No Zelda. No Smash Bros. No Metroid. Just new (or lesser) franchises being highlighted whilst giving those aforementioned series a 'break'. It'll never actually happen, obviously...

I think that's a bit extreme but "for a year or so" without any of that would be highly appreciated, if risky to the point of being ridiculous.

A crossover title where Samus crashes in Hyrule after chasing metal Ridley there. Ridley teams up with Ganon and Link and Samus have to work together. Nintendo will pour all their resources into this, it will have online play, DLC, and other character cameos.

So basically... Super Smash Bros 4?

One of the plot lines anyway. Another is Olimar with a Pikmin squad gathering pellets for the Onions, when a Emperor Bulblax shows up. Then Pit flies down out of nowhere and shoots the Bulblax in the face before landing. An epic battle ensues.

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.
