It's nearly E3 time! Are you hype? We're hype. We've seen what the other publishers have had to offer over the past three days and now it's Nintendo's turn to showcase its hot new games — finally!
And what would an E3 Nintendo Direct be without some crazy surprises and even crazier predictions crammed onto a bingo card, eh? Below you'll find our very own E3 2021 Nintendo Direct Bingo Card, courtesy of our lovely video producer Zion (AKA Zion-From-Nintendo-Life).
If you're on mobile, give it a sneaky screengrab (cropping off all the rubbish above and below, if you like) and save it to your phone to tick off the megatons as they're announced later today:
Let us know which of these predictions you think is most likely to get ticked off in the comments below. And definitely let Alex know when you spot a certain giant hidden on the card, too.
Here we go guys, only about two hours away, My body is ready!
Heh, good luck getting a Bingo.
Already made mine.
Nobody is getting a bingo with this board.
It missed Zelda Anniversary and NSO N64
Too easy everyone will bingo in first 5 minutes.
I need more Mother. C'mon Nintendo make it happen!!
Metroid V doesn’t sound like a right title because no canonically (not including the Prime games), there are already 5 games being Metroid > Return of Samus > Super > Other M > Fusion in terms of story progression.
Isn't the point of bingo that you might eventually get all of them? Cos there are definitely not gonna be that many major announcements.
That Doshin jab, tho.
May as well add insult to injury; Custom Robo.
I think the rest will be 3rd party updates because Nintendo was slammed by covid. Not expecting any 1st party reveals.
Yes. All of those things please.
Yeah surely they'll get us Mother 3 in the West eventually. Pretty sure that Earthbound and Earthbound Origins were a big hit for them on Wii U Virtual Console. Oh well.
@Dezzy I'm fairly sure in Bingo you just have to get a row. Horizontal, Vertical or Diagonal, so long as it's one side to the other.
@Snow-Dust fusion says Metroid 4 when it boots up, I think other M is its own thing
I think the free space will be ticked off but idk
made my own
Doubt i get much right
Not counting the games already announced, I think WarioWare has the highest chance of appearing. Monolith Soft are probably assisting in the development of BotW2, so I don't know if they'll show anything. And if the rumour about the DK game developed by the Odyssey team isn't true, then I think there's a high chance of Odyssey 2 being revealed.
That's right, it should be Metroid VI (Metroid VIII if the two remakes, Metroid Zero Mission and Samus Returns, are counted separatedly).
A nintendo e3 bingo card with no mention of Mario at all?
My body ISN'T ready. But I'll be watching, and hoping it's amazing.
I only need:
Mario Odyssey 2
A new Donkey Kong
Another Zelda remake (hopefully Wind Waker and Twilight Princess)
And a Game Boy, GBA or N64 switch online.
I don't think I'm asking for too much.
A new Mario game is really need at this point after many ports. A DK game is being rumored and its hopefully happening. A Zelda remake is something natural since it's its 35th anniversary.
And some new console addition to the Switch Online os basically free for Nintendo to do, so I dont think is really nuts what I'm asking for.
We're really hoping for Metroid news, I guess XD
Why is Doshin The Giant in the sub headline but not in the bingo card itself?
My picks would be:
SMT V (very sure)
BOTW 2 (pretty sure)
New IP (just maybe)
Bayonetta 3 (wishful thinking)
Skyward Sword (very sure)
Not expecting the following:
Anything Metroid (they make a special direct for that one when the time is ripe)
Splatoon 3 (not ready yet)
Warioware (nope, just not expecting it)
I am not expecting anything about a new Switch.
For some reason I think the focus on that would be so huge, that nobody would care about any of the games.
Simple I expect them to announce that later this summer.
Rusty Slugger in the "FREE" space is inspired.
Wait, you think Satellaview NSO is more likely than N64 NSO?
TIL. Punchout!! does not exist.
2nd column or 2nd row are the most likely for the win.
Y’all forgot N64 Classic Mini and umm Warioland? Any takers? 😁
Satellaview NSO would be awesome!
my bingo card is better.
We play comment bingo around here...
Does anyone really believe that we’ll see anything related to Deltarune? We still have 96 years left on development.
This is my board: https://bingobaker.com/view/4248668
I highly doubt I'll get more than 3 in a row, but hey, let's do this anyway!
My body is ready....
For missing this. Canadian schools (or mine, at least) don't get out until the 25th.
@Snow-Dust The core Metroids (I, Return of Samus, Super and Fusion) are called I, II, III, and IV in Japan. Other M isn't included as a main series title and is officially considered a spin-off like the Prime games.
Says who? In the official Japanese website for Samus Returns, Other M is included alongside the other main Metroid games in the "History" section.
Other M is a main installment. It's part of the main storyline.
That card is completely unwinnable.
That looks like a really hopeless bingo card.
I feel like the 4th row has a shot.
Classic Revival could be used for so many games yet, sadly, will probably remain open.
Edit: I admit I was wrong. Who saw Advance Wars coming? Surprisingly, Cruis'n Blast was leaked but true.
@Snow-Dust Well, you were proven wrong
@Snow-Dust @link3710 @Stubborn_Monkey
And it turns out Metroid Dread is Metroid 5, but I'd say Other M is still a main installment, dammit. Someone ask Yoshio Sakamoto to confirm or deny.
@Stubborn_Monkey yea, guess it’s Metroid 5 it is. I’m going to call Other M as 3.5 then since it’s place between Super and Fusion in terms of lore.
I had Mario Kart, Pilotwings, Starfox, WaveRace, F-Zero, 3D Mario, 2D Mario and Donkey Kong on my bingo card…..guess what, I’m sat here like a chump whilst people are calling ‘Bingo’ with garbage like Mario Party!
Looks like no Bingo for anyone.
Official sources do treat it as a main installment, unlike the Prime games. And Nintendo did hype it up back in the day. I don't know if they're trying to downplay its importance because of the backlash it got or something like that, but personally, I still consider it a main Metroid game.
Well that was boring. About the only unusual reveal was Metroid and maybe SMT. Other than that it was super...meh
Ya know, 6 spaces was better than I was expecting
