E3 2016 isn't far away, and you can expect the usual pre-E3 articles where we focus on E3 memories, magical moments, and occasions when we wanted to curl up in a ball and cry. Of course our usual 'five things we expect' feature won't happen in quite the same form, for reasons that are clear. Nevertheless Nintendo has beefed up its E3 plans to include streams and broadcasts covering a small number of exciting games, while eShop fans will be eagerly awaiting the promised discount bonanza.

As fans we always want more, though, and that's abundantly clear on the freshly launched [email protected] 2016 Miiverse channel. Its comment posts are mostly asking for surprises, many of them unrealistic. All mentions of NX have clearly missed the many memos Nintendo's issued saying it won't be there, though some are hoping for relatively feasible surprises - sane suggestions include a surprise look at Paper Mario: Color Splash or perhaps the Mario Kart 8 DLC that may or may not have been teased recently.

Some can't get past a certain game with 3 in the title, meanwhile...

In any case, check it out if you have a lot of time and tolerance to spare.
