As LA slumbers ahead of the first day of E3 2019, us Europeans are already up and hyped for this evening's Nintendo Direct. We've already seen some presentations, with big ones from Ubisoft and Square Enix last night providing some Switch-based announcements, as you can see from the main page of the site. After two years of Nintendo love and tie-in projects at their presentation, the Ubisoft show was curiously light on Switch content, although the Square Enix presentation offered plenty for Nintendo fans to chew on.
That's all peripheral though - tonight's the big one! For approximately 40 minutes we'll be getting proper introductions to previously announced games coming this year such as Animal Crossing, Pokémon Sword and Shield, Link's Awakening and Luigi's Mansion 3, plus a whole lot more (hopefully). We'll also get a proper introduction to NOA President Doug Bowser as he assumes the role previously occupied by another primed body, the now-retired Reggie Fils-Aime. The former President is being represented at the show by a familiar face, though:
Yep, cross promotion or not, we like to believe that Samuel L. Jackson and Reggie are besties.
So, there are plenty of known quantities in the show already, but what else are you hoping to see in this evening's presentation? Well, there's not much room for big names, but the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild team has been quiet for a couple of years now, and that game was teased in 2014, nearly three years before release. If we're expecting a new Zelda three years from now, a tiny little reveal seems plausible.
There are still a few low-hanging fruit to be plucked from the Wii U tree, too, and with the Super Mario 3D World 'skin' or 'style' appearing in Super Mario Maker 2, we wouldn't be surprised to see that game ported to Switch. Regardless, the plumber will undoubtedly feature in some capacity, whether he's golfing or karting or throwing pills around as a medical practitioner. Oh, how we'd love another round of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC...
With the final Splatfest having been announced for Splatoon 2, it's possible we might see the next entry in the series, although it would arguably need a fresh spin on the formula to avoid feeling like a retread - certainly more than the jump from the original game to the sequel. We'd love to see some truly fresh IP amongst the returning faves, and we're eager to see how Game Freak's Town is coming along.
There's also plenty of room for returning franchises that have yet to receive an airing on Switch (and that's besides all the dormant Nintendo franchises we looked at over the weekend). We'd love to see a Rhythm Heaven or WarioWare game on the console, for example. This writer has a particular love for Pocket Card Jockey, but there's a multitude of smaller possibilities in amongst the megatons.
Finally, even though we've got our SNES Classic Mini lined up next to our NES Mini, we'd still like to see Super Nintendo games debuting on the Nintendo Switch Online service. After all, it's tough to play a SNES Classic Mini on a train.
But that's enough wittering from us - what are you hoping for in today's Nintendo Direct? We took a look back at last year's presentation yesterday, and this year's is already shaping up to be a lot more varied. Share your Nintendo-related hopes and dreams below as we prepare for the Nintendo E3 2019 presentation. The E3 Hype Train is arriving at its destination! Join us later today at 17:00 BST / 18:00 CET (or 09:00 PT / 12:00 EST stateside)...
Honestly I'm expecting very little this year. There are already so many games we know coming that the Direct could easily be filled just by showing off those. If we just got some decent gameplay of all the upcoming titles with perhaps a sneaky Breath of the Wild sequel casually thrown in then I will be a very happy bunny indeed.
To be fair, I just want a flood of details for Luigi's Mansion and Animal Crossing, with confirmation that both are coming this year for sure. Everything else is just a bonus.
Give me a new IP. Prime 4 footage. Skyward Sword remaster. SNES, 64 and GC along with the handheld games on Switch. Bayonetta 3
I just want some good announcements and gameplay footage
I'm going in with zero expectations like I always do. I prefer to be excited about what does get announced rather than disappointed about what doesn't.
I just want a new Monster Hunter on Switch. But since Iceborne is coming I highly doubt an E3 reveal. Maybe TGS 2019 in November if they want to show something this year.
Realistically, I just want more news on Astral Chain, DxM, and maybe a MonolithSoft game tease.
Speaking personally, as exciting as new reveals would be, I have the most horrendous backlog and there’s so many promising upcoming games too. I’d just be happy with updates to previously announced games. Boring answer!
Nintendo is the only one of the main 3 that honestly has no excuse to not come out swinging. Nintendo's not biding their time for a new console release like MS and Sony clearly are, so I expect stuff to excite me on par with 2017's Switch releases. Already off to a good start by default as long as Luigi's Mansion is still 2019
X box pass. Would be an amazing addition for Switch.
Some SMT5 footage would be nice. Other than that I really dunno what I want to see, like Mario Maker comes in a few weeks, I'm getting Pokemon & Fire Emblem for sure and any and all they could reveal would just be spoilers at this point. I guess I'm hoping that the Smash DLC is something I like and in addition there is something that positively surprises me.
I want a upgraded Switch, so i can finally buy one.
Prime Trilogy would be awesome, but I think it's more realistic with Samus: Returns port 3ds.
A new F-Zero entry, it could be even a small arcadelike download title that brings for example the Snes Version with updated graphics.
And CADENCE OF HYRULE available NOW!
Also, starting 4 PM, I will evict myself from the internet until 9 PM, because I won't be able to tune in the direct when it's due and I want to be completely floored...
Honestly, I only care about Animal Crossing.
But I'm really excited for Luigi's Mansion 3 and I'm hoping for something Pikmin related. But that is probably not going to happen.
Mario Kart Maker
You can already make tracks in LABO racing, this should be easy for Nintendo.
Xenoblade Chronicles HD Remaster
Nintendo Pocket Football Club - Ported to Switch
need a big 2nd halve of a the year, i want 1 big game per month, till xmas then poke and some other monster hit, we need mkwt soon, maybe today, swithc lite/ pro soon, make more /cheaper accessories , like docks etc, where is n64 mini
Not gonna lie....fully expect...
Diddy Kong racing to launch new rare partnership.
Then Microsoft partnership announced...
Forza Horizon Switch
Forza Motorsport Switch
Mario Kart track maker announced as Free dlc for MK8
And free cash for us all...
Then I wake up.
This is what I want to see:
Luigi's Mansion 3
Mario Kart 9
Super Mario Party 2
Wind Waker HD
And some surprises
I'm hoping realistically for SNES games on Switch and the new fighter in Smash to be revealed (which has already been confirmed to be happening anyway). I'm not going in with much expectations..
A Spyro Trilogy announcement would be nice too.
More Luigi's Mansion footage, a new Donkey Kong platformer and a new F-zero would be great. Some first footage about MP4 would also be nice
Sadly I don't think there will be many surprises this direct.
I'm hoping for a new big Zelda teaser but I don't believe it will happen with Link Awakening's release coming soon.
I'm hoping to see more about Astral Chain, Luigi's mansion 3 and Town.
-A new Zelda but for well into 2020. I need to play many more games LOL
-Mario Kart 9, for 2020 is OK too
-New 3D Mario game, Holiday 2019
Not much else really
I want those first party release dates and I wanna see some third party support
Prime 4 footage plus trilogy (big if), curious about Town, release date Luigis Mansion, some Animal Crossing, Smash fighter announcement, Bayonetta, some more Pokemon perhaps, some ports and then I’m pretty satisfied already
Of course, hoping for MK8 DLC, but I don’t expect that tbh
Edit: And some Astral Chain
I don't expect anything big to be honest. I just want releasedates for Luigi's Mansion 3/Animal Crossing/Links Awakening. I believe LM3 will be out sooner than we think.
Animal Crossing (Open Road) will come in 2020
I really hope that SNES games will come to Nintendo online, but I don't think it will happen at all
New Zelda game
New Donkey Kong game
@nintendolie yes always wanted something like this.
@liljmoore How come Nintendo never brought GameCube games to the Wii U? Is it hard to emulate, like the Sega Saturn?
Nintendo Kart presented like it is more Smash DLC but instead of fighting they hop into Karts and start racing on a Metroid Stage.
I just want to know if Pikmin 4 is real, Luigi Mansion details, and who's the next DLC fighter in Smash.
1. Animal Crossing
2. Luigi's Mansion 3 (already confirmed)
3. Astral Chain.
those are the only three i want to see.
Splatoon 3 please.
Finally get some sort of Mario Sunshine update, sequel or remake I just want it in some form.
Here we go.
I wish... (rubbing Genie's lamp)
1. Animal Crossing Switch will have gameplay like Dragon Quest Builders 2 in Full 360' angle.
2. Re:Legend on Nintendo Switch
3. The Sims 4 on Nintendo Switch
Luigi's Mansion 3
Some sort of Smash DLC
Something new about Pokemon Sw/Sh
Third party reel (expect a release date for A Hat in Time)
Cold drop for Cadence of Hyrule
New Wii U ports (Pikmin 3 is my guess)
A tease for Pikmin 4
You got a Sunshine costume in Odyssey That's all Nintendo is giving you when its about Sunshine on the Switch
Monster Hunter Stories 2! Do it Capcom!!
Metroid Prime Trilogy, Samus Returns, F-Zero, Star Fox, Mario Strikers, SNES/GB/GBC/GBA for Nintendo Online with the complete Mother trilogy available today, all Zelda games ported, Mario Kart 9, New Zelda announced, Mario Party DLC, original Retro project, No More Heroes 3 (along with 1 & 2), new Pikmin along with ports of 1-3, new Xenoblade (along with 1 & X), Microsoft ports with Rare Replay available today, all GTA games, Bully, new Monster Hunters, more Dark Souls
Did I miss anything?
A Banjo/Conker cross over where they fight together to save Kazooie. Conker gets drunk and can never understand Banjo because he can’t read his text boxes that appear in front of him.
I don’t know.
I honestly don’t know.
I want a new Monolithsoft fantasy game that's similar in gameplay to Xenoblade.
And a new Mariokart game.
Though I don't really expect to hear about those it would be nice. And let's be honest E3 has been a bust so far with the only real interesting news being that Halo will be day one with Scarlett. So whatever Nintendo does, assuming they announce one new thing, they'll win best of the show.
Pikmin 4 (or a Pikmin trilogy collection)
F-Zero GX HD
Although I wouldn't mind some MK8 dlc, im really holding out for a MK9! That and Pikmin 4 or a Pikmin rerelease on Switch and I'm happy. Otherwise, bringing back F Zero would go down well.
Super Mario Sunshine 2
Collection of Mana.
It wasn't shown at Square-Enix's conference, but I'm still believing!
New Pro Controller
Super Mario 3D World Remaster
Luigi's Mansion 3 is my main focus. Anything else is a bonus. And I really hope they don't spend 30+ minutes on Animal Crossing like they did with Smash last year. Because, while the game will be great (hopefully), we don't need more than enough time on it.
I want release date updates of games we already know about.
I want some new cool games.
I don't want ports.
I am hoping for, fingers crossed:
1. Mario Galaxy 3 + Remakes of Mario galaxy 1 and 2
2. The Witcher 3 at 1080 60fps
3. Last minute announcement that Mario Maker 2 is free of charge for everyone with a nintendo online subscription
4. Legend of Zelda: BotW 2
5. 2 versions of Metroid Prime like with pokemon: Metroid Prime No Clothes Samus and Metroid Prime Bikini Samus
6. Chrono Trigger 2 and why not also 3 since it's been so long since the first one
7. New Mother game with Father DLC next year
Pretty realistic list I might add..
system stability updates
To be totally honest I'm waiting for the Direct to end so I can grab the eShop sale.
Literally just Pikmin 4
I'm mainly hoping for some details on already announced games like Bayonetta 3 and Animal Crossing.
Animal Crossing specifically, I'm hoping we get something that builds on the previous games more than anything. I don't want to be the mayor again, but I do think having the player become the city planner would be an upgrade. Give the player more fine control over things. Let the player designate zoning for different purposes like residential to better control where new animals move in, and let us relocate animals for a fee. Let us place down actual paths made from stone or brick that blend into the environment. Bring over limited use tools like fishing nets and honey from Pocket Camp, but change them into a set and come back in a few hours sort of thing. I mainly just want an HD normal Animal Crossing with some quality of life changes.
For other games I still have hopes for Banjo in Smash, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was someone else entirely. Pie in the sky wishes would be for a new Switch Monster Hunter and Nintendo working out some kind of deal with Microsoft to get some N54 era Rare made games like the Banjo-Kazooies and DK64 remastered and released on the Switch. Unlikely, but it'd be really cool.
Over all though I just want them to give me something to be excited about. So far this E3 has been very underwhelming for me. It wouldn't take much for Nintendo to "win E3" at this point. They could practically just show up and talk about the Smash DLC for 40 minutes and be good.
Prime 4 gameplay or hype CG trailer.
A new Zelda tease and the Metroid trilogy would be cool. Really though, any sort of unexpected ace would be fun, a new IP or some sort of twist or something. E3 has been mostly boring so far (though props to Squeenix for a decent show), and it's up to Nintendo to save it now.
Animal Crossing, with a hint of Animal Crossing, mixed in with Animal Crossing, and topped with a sprinkling of Animal Crossing.
Recipe for life.
I'm a bit hyped but not expecting much.
Apart from what we know of if they just stick to 2019 release window...
Retro Studios Secret Game. DK 3D?
Metroid Prime Trilogy HD.
Rare Replay Nintendo Edition.
Super Mario Party Free DLC featuring more boards and characters.
SNES for Online Service officially announced to launch in September.
And at end a quick teaser for something coming in 2020. Maybe Odyssey 2.
As soon as that PEGI 18 warning at the start pops up, you know it's going to be Bayonetta 3 related =0p
Hoping they share a little information about Animal Crossing then save an in depth look for a future focused Direct. I expect they will share the Smash Bros DLC info, a quick look at some new amiibos, a new trailer for Link's Awakening with firm release date, another look at Fire Emblem Three Houses (again with another focused Direct in early July), new Shovel Knight, Luigi's Mansion 3, a sprinkling of Indies and then a couple of surprises.
Why hope for a new IP, when there's so many great ones screaming for a revival? Like Eternal Darkness for instance.
On a more realistic front I hope for a Pikmin 4 announcement.
A newTimesplitters please!!
Spoiler alert: there’s not going to be any Metroid 4 gameplay. They just announced they were restarting development on the game a few months ago.
SNES on Switch Online and one surprise title immediately available.
Mother 3........ That's all
Mario Kart Ultimate
All I want is new 1080 wave race and rare games from n64 era.
I just want more Kid Icarus
Banjo is coming to switch and to smash bros
Just F-Zero. Please. Just F-Zero
Silksong, available today
Any Pikmin news, i mean, literally.
Mario Soccer would be a dream
Just give us MP Trilogy HD. That would do it for me for time being until MP4 releases. Maybe a dormant IP revival.... Eternal Darkness perhaps? Will never happen but would be a nice surprise 😲
Release dates for DQ XI, Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion 3, Link's Awakening, and Daemon X Machina. Everything else is gravy.
They need a 3rd party indie style game pass service that's cross platform with xbox,pc,playstation,and nintendo.
Some gameplay of Sword & Shield and the Link's Awakening remake would be great, but as always, I'm keeping my expectations low.
A new warriors game with a new nintendo franchise? Heck il take fire emblem warriors 2 or hyrule warriors 2. Both my favourite games on switch
I'd mostly be satisfied with more info and some release dates on the games that we do know about. We know that there are bound to be surprises though. I don't have a true wishlist, but that's because they're ticking most of the boxes already.
Conker's Bad Fur Day for Switch. Just you watch..
is there a way to download the show just after it ends ? want to watch it during a train journey and wifi is usually no good then...
As always, I expect some known games, some unknown games and many, many angry tears here.
I want Spyro on the Switch, and nothing announced to be delayed. That would make a good direct
Mario Strikers.. that is it.
More info on Animal Crossing and the Marvel Alliance game. I’m sure Fire Emblem and that new game by Platinum Games will make an appearance. I’m not expecting any big surprises.
Indeed, bucking the trend of the other devs who were touting a lot of 2020 games this Direct should be all/mostly 2019 games(with gameplay and release dates) and some surprise DLC.
Obviously Zelda tease would be immense but think they will hold off until the Jan direct to separate from the Christmas marketing.
i know i am living in the past.
I'd really love it if Nintendo were to announce a compilation of Mario's previous 3D outings remastered for switch. 64, Galaxy 1 and 2, Sunshine and 3D World. I know I'm dreaming though
@Cyrax77 WE DEMAND A TIMESPLITTERS 2 REMAKE. OR A NEW TIMESPLITTERS. OR BOTH.
They already have bunch of great games coming that are more than enough for me for this year. That said, I wouldn't mind a surprise or two.
tbh I just want to play Mario Maker 2 now.
Really really really want Prime Trilogy. Although I’m keeping my expectations in check and I acknowledge that such an announcement isn’t likely. I just really want it.
Really really want it.
Xbox Game Pass streaming to Switch. A racing franchise return (F-ZERO, WAVERACE, EXCITEBIKE, 1080), remastered GCN games, OVERWATCH.
Oh, and what the heck has RETRO STUDIOS been working on!?!?
What I would like to see is release dates for Zelda,Luigi mansion 3 and AC switch. Some new trailers for Marvel ultimate alliance 3 ,Astral Chain and FE.
One or two games like Tetris 99 which are free for subscribers to NSO. Snes coming to the service and some 3rd party surprises.
Now I can suspect we are getting a wiiu port announcement during this. Still would love to see some returning franchises like kid icarus ,advance wars or golden sun be revealed.
Also whatever monolith and retro was/is working to be teased or or given a reveal trailer
Reading most of the responses on here, I may be alone in this but I'm hoping for:
-Rune Factory 5 details (Not too much, just a minute's worth)
-The next Switch iterations for Etrian Odyssey, Bravely series and Fantasy Life
-An answer for Monster Tale's magically invisible development (WHERE ART THOU)
-Next Monster Hunter game or maybe even FF Explorers
@Desrever I'm with you on that. It was one of my fav 3ds games.
The only thing that it would really hurt to not hear anything about is SNES online.
Other than that it's all about B-listers like you mentioned in the article - Warioware/land, Mario Golf, Kid Icarus, Pikmin, Rhythm Heaven, and so on.
All I want is Doug Bowser dressed up as King Bowser. That’s it.
Expectations breed disappointments. And somehow, I feel like Nintendo will be keeping some great reveals for a direct a few months after E3, when the public's attention isn't divided.
I'd like to see the prime trilogy, windwaker HD, Twilight Princess HD, or SKyward Sword ported to Swtich.
SNES games added today! That’s my only wish
I'm not too thrilled about the games that are already confirmed, but I'd be very happy with a Pikmin 4 of Prime trilogy announcement.
Every year I just wanna see some Hotel Dusk and Endless Ocean content; I’m hoping this will be my year.
Any Zelda HD ports
SNES games for online service
Any nice surprises are a bonus
Hoping they don’t spend too much time on already announced games as I’m not that interested in any of them
Oh I’d also love a switch pro announcement but 99% sure that’s not happening
1. Metroid Trilogy...for the love of god just release it already!
2. F-Zero...it is time.
3. Any Zelda or Mario remasters. Preferably all of them.
4. SNES or (dare we hope) Gamecube games
@zander_dale man, how that would be so freaking amazing....
@parasnail agreed bro.. i dont think there is a single game bigger than mario maker 2 this year, not even pokemon..
Civ vi Gathering Storm?
Just Mother 3 and that is all.
I do think we'll get Splatoon 3 next year, but I don't think they'll announce it here. A late-year Nintendo Direct seems more likely to me.
I'm more curious than excited this year, since all I REALLY want is Fire Emblem Three Houses - and that's coming in July - so I guess if I HAD to hope for a single game... It'd be Etrian Odyssey 6 (or well, Etrian Odyssey Switch).
The Etrian Odyssey team has been quiet for a long time, but have teased a "next step" in the franchise, so I'm hoping we soon get some kind of announcement.
Well as they will not have to devote half of the direct to Smash bros and do not have the 3DS to offer token support,we should be in for some good Switch action with the games we know about,with a few surprises thrown in.
i know everyone else wants SNES games on NSO, but i grew up during the gameboy era. i only ever owned, like, three games, but i’m hoping some of the great ones i never got a chance to play come to NSO. but i know that SNES will come first.
@Arbor I think the ones wanting SNES and other REALLY old games are just a vocal minority. Personally I'm happy we don't have it yet, though it's sad we've got NES games.
Just my opinion though.
Really hoping for Nintendo to have some new first party IP although I doubt it will happen
i’m also hoping for some zelda ports (ya know, twilight princess, windwaker, skyward sword, and also minish cap). other than that i’m happy with what we already know.
I'm hoping we'll finally get to see what Shinen has been working on. Whatever it is, they've been making it for more than 2 years and the last time they spoke about it, they said it's something completely different to anything they've done before.
@immensechicken xenoblade warriors
pokemon sword and shield gameplay
a new dk game
A port of gale of darkness
Luigismansion 3 gameplay
what the heck is town i need more
MUA3 iceman and cyclops confirmed
kid icuarus in some capacity
Hoping for a new IP or bring back an old forgotten IP. More info on Astral Chain and the new Smash fighter/s. Also would love HD ports of the 64 Zelda games. My wish would be a Super Mario RPG remake or Crono in Smash Bros but it won’t happen lol
and a new mario RPG also wario world 2 or remake of 1 and an online free to play Pokemon stadium a man can dream right lol
also lets go 2 or lets go DLC
Expectations are low. Mainly hoping for release dates for games already announced and perhaps an update on a few titles not releasing (Bayonetta 3).
My only real hope for excitement is a surprise announcement that releases soon. Last year they revealed Super Mario Party and then released it about 4 months later. This year, I'd love to see that done with something like Mario Golf.
Other than that....I'm sure it will be a fine Direct. Will watch it when I wake up. Hope everyone isn't too disappointed or anything. After all...you know there will be a new Direct in September. We don't have to wait all year kinda thing.
I'm expecting surprises akin to last year's Daemon X Machina. And no-shows from things people expect the most.
As far as expectations go, I’m trying to be very conservative - I’m thinking we’ll see more info on Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion, Pokemon, Link’s Awakening, Fire Emblem, Town and Astral Chain (hopefully all with solid release dates for 2019 and no delays), a short segment on Mario Maker 2, a new Smash character or two, and sizzle reels for 3rd parties and indies (including maybe a shadow drop for Cadence of Hyrule).
If I had to make a wild wish list by throwing away all semblance of reason, though, I would LOVE to see Switch remasters/ports of Fantasy Life (because that game is awesome and deserves a second lease of life on an HD console), Samus Returns, Skyward Sword/Twilight Princess/Wind Waker, Super Mario 3D World and Metroid Prime Trilogy, and maybe a reveal of the games that Retro Studios and Monolith Soft have been working on for the past few years. These are all unlikely, but a girl can dream...
In spite of that, the hype is REAL! All aboard!
I am insanely hyped for Animal Crossing. If Nintendo delivers Animal Crossing with launch this year, I will be happy. In that case, there will be no complaints from me, even if they spend 20 minutes talking about the next smash character.
Metroid Prime Trilogy, snes online announced along with a virtual consoleesque for those that don't sub to play, shantae or Asuka for smash, a new star tropics!
Something is going to be left out, even of the things we rightly expect to be there. It wouldn't be Nintendo if they didn't completely miss something out.
In all seriousness, 40 minutes doesn't seem that long, I hope they give Animal Crossing a good 15 minutes and no longer, and spend the rest of the time in 1-2 minute trailers/reveals. I cannot sit for 40 minutes watching the one game like last year!
I'm keeping expectations in check. They'll probably just give updates on first party games we already know about like Luigi's Mansion 3, Link's Awakening, Fire Emblem, etc. There will be the Smash character reveal. Probably a few surprises from third parties and a shadow drop for Cadence of Hyrule. They'll save the 2020 announcements for a Direct later this year. Why hype games for next year when you still have a ton of great games coming this year that you need to sell hardware?
Besides of the obvious footage of Zelda Link's Awakening and Luigi Mansion 3, I'm hoping for a special announcement, hopefully Mario Odyssey 2, or maybe a Mario Galaxy Collection, o Mario 3D World 2, or something on the like.
And of course, SNES games for the Nintendo Online.
I'll be happy if everything keeps it's release date for this year. I'm worried something will slip.
Other than that: Pikmin of some sort- 4 or the old games to download, a new IP would be great, Waverace would be awesome, and Skies of Arcadia plus shows a sequel (yes they are Sega games but I can dream).
As many said before, I think there will be more details about known upcoming games, rather the real news/surprises.
Obviously it would be very nice to see some unexpected Annunciations, I won't hold my breath but let's cross fingers
More on Banjo/Conker game.
Conker is hungover in Banjo’s backpack.
He shoots vomit instead of eggs.
Does copter tail for double jump.
Can be sobered up for two player experience.
1. A proper voice chat.
2. Non-NES games for Nintendo Switch Online.
3. A better look/shopping experience for the e-shop.
Unrealistic, I know. 🤞🤞
Smash kart DLC for Mario kart 8.
@NorseGamerTommy How about Super Mario Party DLC? I'm surprised there hasn't been any yet!
I don't want to see games that are already out, or coming out soon that we know all about.
I don't want Mario Maker or Pokemon to show up. We just got a lot of info on both of those.
The SquareEnix show felt like a rerun, nearly all the games we already knew about, and some have been out in at least japan since last year!
@BenAV well said
@MrBlacky Some people are going to lose the plot....
Details and dates for what’s supposed to be coming this year.
Something new from Nintendo for next year
A couple of big third party ports
@Wildvine53 It so happens that I've just bought the first Endless Ocean. Missed it back in the day but looking forward to relaxing in the sea!
I can't think of anything I'm hoping for in particular. It'll probably just be more on games we already know are coming and a handful of new indie titles.
I'll give my realistic expectations of what's going to be shown:
1- Luigi's Mansion 3 gameplay.
2- Mario and Sonic at 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
3- More Astral Chains gameplay
4- More Pokemon Sword/Shield Gameplay (Because Wynaut?)
5- Fire Emblem: The Three Houses (To fill the direct time).
6- New features for Super Mario Maker 2.
7- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Challenger Pack 2.
8- Animal Crossing 2019 gameplay and release date.
9- Daemon X Machina gameplay and release date.
10- Marvel Ultimate Alliance short gameplay.
11- New Nindie games.
Anything other than that, is a bonus. I expect new IPs to be shown, but I won't hold my breath on that.
Skyward Sword HD for Switch. I’ve tried going back and playing it on my Wii U, but between waggling that archaic Wiimote, and the muddy SD graphic mess that looks like a gorgeous painting that got left in the rain.....I just can’t seem to play it.
Map the sword swinging to joy cons and just HD-ify the game. I will buy it in a heartbeat.
Oh...and Metroid Prime Trilogy Switch please. 🤗
We'll get gameplay for previously mentioned titles.
But I'm keen to see some SNES, N64 and/or NGC announcements.
Ports, Persona series, and localized Secret of Mana.
I fully expect nothing on my wish list to be granted, but I’ll share it anyway, because a man can dream.
1)Skies of Arcadia remastered
2)Skies of Arcadia 2
3)Wind Waker HD Switch port
4)Twilight Princess Switch port
5)BotW DLC/Sequel akin to Majora’s Mask (reused assets)
6)Luigi’s Mansion 1 & 2 Switch ports...out NOW!
7)Mario Odyssey DLC
8)Super Mario 3D World Switch port
9)Bayonetta release date
10)Vanquish Switch port and sequel announced
11)Game Cube, SNES, and WiiU games on the eshop
So, all in all, a pretty disappointing direct for me no matter what they announce. 😂
Buck Bumble 2
Something about Xenoblade Chronicles (X) would be great for me
I'm keeping my expectations low and my mind open. Frankly, Pokemon has already set me to believe Nintendo can perform very well this year and, while Square Enix did amazing, I'm only really interested in one or two of their games. Same with Xbox. Nintendo just need to bring 2-3 more and I'll consider their showing that much more impressive than others this year.
The only hope I have for a new Nintendo IP is for them to maybe jump into the MOBA space. Arena of Valor hasn't turned out too well but its made me realize that it's very addictive in terms of gameplay. If Nintendo went into it with their own twists and unique characters, I frankly couldn't be happier.
And I suppose since we're never getting PSO now (thanks Sega...) I'm hoping something like that would be the knockout I need.
Luigi’s Mansion 2 needs a re-release to add check points and Amiibo compatibility.
I wish dearly that Luigi’s Mansion 3, Link’s Awakening and Animal Crossing are showcased well and look great. Anything else is bonus!
Some nice surprises are always welcome. Wouldn’t mind Xbox Gamepass streaming on Switch.
My modest (?) wishes for E3...
PSO2 for Switch
(Hey, Xbox is getting it)
Persona 5 (not Royale)
SNES Service for NSO
Reggie and Miyamoto cameos
Somehow avoid spoilers until I can see the Direct tonight, after work!
Something new. If Fire Emblem footage takes longer than 5 minutes, I'm going to throw something.
What I would really like to see and would probably buy day 1, in no particular order.
I thought their e3 last year was pretty bad, they spent WAY too much time on Smash (felt like almost half their direct) and really didn't show much of the other games like Astral Chain and Luigi's Mansion 3 which should receive decent exposure this year.
Showing Pokemon again after just having a direct worries me a bit as when you have a mere 40 minute presentation a part of me is wondering if they don't have much to show again even though they should have plenty with Luigi's Mansion 3, Bayonetta 3, Fire Emblem, Astral Chain and that mech game (name escapes me).
I'd like a surprise reveal like Metroid Prime 4 even if it's coming in 2020. Also what the hell happened to Shin Megami Tensei V? I NEEEEEEDDDD ITTTTTT
Luigi's mansion and links awakening obviously. Probably some on animal crossing. I hope we will see OOT hd (3ds version), and maybe a teaser for the next 3d zelda and mario. I dont think we'll see metroid prime 4 since they rebooted the project.
Super Mario Party add-on content or DLC. (In a perfect world they'd add a Koopa's Tycoon Town level). Also a massive price cut on Wii U titles (Twilight Princess!) would be nice.
Donkey Kong Country with K. Rool’s return
Instead of holding my breath, waiting for it's older IPs to make come backs, I'd love to see new IPs. At least one that will blow away it's rivals games. I want a monster hit that will have us all salivating for months. I can wait on all the remakes and all that. Just a new IP please.
All I'm predicting from this upcoming Direct is more info for already-announced games like Link's Awakening, as well as the next DLC fighter for Smash Ultimate. Other than that, I'm not expecting too much. Though I would be a very happy man if they announced SNES games for Switch Online (more retro Nintendo platforms would be even better), Mario Kart 9, the next F-Zero (though I admit, that's a very slim chance), DLC kingdoms for Super Mario Odyssey, or the next Donkey Kong Country. Not expecting those though, just my wishful thinking.
Bring in the announcements, Ninty!
Super mario bros 3d world 2
Grab your bags, the hype train is almost at the station.
Retro did a great job on their versions of DKC, but it’s just not the same without the Kremlins and King K. Rool.
@ShaiHulud you’re in for a treat, it’s a wonderful experience!
