That's a large list.
I'm hoping this means they have many announcement tomorrow. And that lack of Nintendo directs makes me think that.



Jayvir said:

Persona Q is really the only one that catches my interest here. We've seen most of these before also...



Hikingguy said:

Pier Solar on the Wii U would be nice! The copy of the game I have has always been called Pier Solar and the great architects. The "and the great architects" has just been a sub title. I think the HD just indicated that it was not the Genesis/Mega Drive version. But I don't think Watermelon ever officially dropped the subtitle.



Spoony_Tech said:

Teslagrad looks sooo good! Persona Q will also be mine. More look interesting but I'll wait till they get released and reviewed.



AVahne said:

Whoa, hoping this is Nintendo getting all the old stuff out of the way so they can show the new stuff and the more highly anticipated stuff.



Troggy said:

Starwhal and One Piece are my picks. Starwhal seems like a really frantic multiplayer game and One Piece seems to be a combination of Monster Hunter and Castle Crashers. Colour me excited.



Kryce said:

I'm too exited for Yu gi oh! zexal WDC I was awaiting for a localization for ages !
armillo, tengami and persona Q looks interesting also .



schizor said:

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth LOOKS AWESOME! The soundtrack for the trailer is superb!



AlexSora89 said:

And this doesn't even cover the whole first-party retail releases.
This is gonna be a good E3.



Kaze_Memaryu said:

Chronosphere looks really beautifull, but I'm still holding out for PierSolar!

The rest didn't really catch me.



Varoennauraa said:

Most of them look amazing, but:
A.N.N.E (not in this list, don't miss it)
Pier Solar

Are absolutely must have games for me



NintyMan said:

What's this 30-minute Digital Event rumor nonsense I've been reading about? I've never heard of it before. I think Nintendo has much more in store than that. It has to be close to an hour long, not counting the Nintendo Minute video that gives even more details.

And about these trailers, Tengami sounds interesting, though Gunman Clive 2 is my most interested indie game right now.



CanisWolfred said:

Two Brothers still looks like it needs some work on a technical level, and the autotune song was grating (and I like autotune when done well). Shame, since I'm really digging the look of it, and the story has potential.

Teslagrad looks awesome as always, Just wish they had some sort of date set for it...

Pier Solar Looks cool, and I really do hope the HD version irons out the flaws of the Genesis version.

Persona Q Has me excited, of course.

Citzens of Earth...showed off the old's a good one, though.

Phoenix Wright Trilogy Looks great, I can't wait to play it!

Tengami Looks more interesting every time I see it.



dumedum said:

lovely. Seem like a lot of console exclusives for Nintendo. eShop looking rad.



Dexter2015 said:

Bah ID filler games, sorry pass I want real developers games not this 5th party junk most of this games also came out for other systems!



Anguspuss said:

seriously lots of games on e shop so either release a mk2 with built in hdd or a totally crazy suggestion an official hdd with some games pre installed or with a DL Code.



DarkCoolEdge said:

My picks: Teslagrad, Nihilumbra, Tengami, Phoenix Wright trilogy and Pier Solar.

In the maybe column, Two brothers and Persona Q. The rest don't interest me even a bit.

Too bad exclusives don't abound. Or even first on WiiU/3DS.




Looking forward to Starwhals and One Piece.
Use to be excited for Two Brothers but I've heard the PC version at least has a lot of problems. I'll wait for a review.



Theober555 said:

Nihilumbra looks brilliant, Starwhal looks hilarious and Tengami looks beautiful! I'll keep an eye on all 3!



Gorlokk said:


Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal and Armillo also look pretty neat.



Dizzard said:

I'd so get Pier Solar if I had a Wii U.

Citizens of Earth and Persona Q look nifty too. (The narwhal game looks bonkers)

Of course Ace Attorney too, but I already have the games.



WaveGhoul said:

I'll take Woa Dave!, Wooden Sen'Say! and Maybe Teslegrad.
Don't really care for the rest.



MadAdam81 said:

Three words - Pheonix Wright Trilogy.
That is all.
Also, Citizens of Earth seems interesting.



TwilightAngel said:

tengami,teslegrad,nihilumbra, are absolutely gorgeous and citizens of earth looks hilarious. Now cubemen 2 cant wait for that game.



SleepyCrossing said:

Extremely excited for these. The quality of titles on the eshop justifies a Wii U purchase to be honest.



StarDust4Ever said:

The Bunny shooting game sonunds interesting. Raymond and the Raving Rabbids had a mode where you shot rabbid rabbits with a plunger gun. The idea of an FPS featuring killing bunnies sounds like a perfect balance between sadistic and hilareous.



ChessboardMan said:

How is the Phoenix Wright Trilogy exclusively remastered for 3DS? Isn't it just using the sprites from the HD iOS version? Or is it including just a touch of 3D too?



ModestFan93 said:

Persona Q and One Piece Unlimited Red for me. They be the obvious choices people should really look at those trailers again.



Lobster said:

Phoenix Wright looks to be good!

I hope they don't show off too much of this tomorrow, oh dear... This would take too much time away from the big guns.



XCWarrior said:

Yu-Gi-Oh and Cubemen 2 are the 2 biggest games for me on that list. And Pier Solar. Lots of good vareity, many genres covered for many types of gamers.



andrea987 said:

Wooden sen sey, tislagrad, pier solar and pac man 2 are very tempting. That starwahl, though, seems like something that could really catch on...



GougeMan said:

Nintendo is about to drop the atomic bomb today. They will come out guns blazing with huge titles coming forth! The return of the King is now.



BertoFlyingFox said:

I'm excited for a lot of these but the Phoenix Wright trilogy is my most anticipated. I would like release windows for everything though, a lot of these indie games have been shown off for way too long with no release dates.



Pod said:

Citizens of Earth has me intrigued.

Looks like it borrows quite a bit of tone and play-style from Earthbound, but with a satirical twist to it.



Genesaur said:

Oh, yeah. I totally forgot about Wooden Sen'Sey.

Teslagrad, Nihilumbra, and Tengami have held my interest since I first laid eyes on them.

Speaking of, that isn't a new trailer for Nihilumbra. That one's been around. I've watched it enough times to know.



Poketendo said:

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy looks simply amazing. May pick it up (don't own any of the original). But I have to mention Woah Dave! What the heck? Woah Block (Pow Block), coins, jumping around, it's just too similair. But it looks a lot of fun. I can't describe it, but I love it and hate it at the same time.
