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.
