Huh, how many extra conferences are they going to have pre and post E3? :P

Also kind of curious to see it's not focusing on the Wii U, considering how confused a lot of the market seems to be towards it. Will be interesting to see what it's about, no less!

I think it depends on whether or not there's a North American version of the conference, or if it's just a subtitled version of the Japanese one. I suppose that in the U.S., they have things to talk about on all three platforms (Pokemon Conquest on the DS, The Last Story on Wii, and whatever 3DS games they decide to trot out). Not sure what's on the DS specifically in Japan at this point, but the Wii will be seeing Dragon Quest X in a matter of months.

If we're still asking about Pre E3 then it has to be a lot because there's a long time to E3 o.O

Alright, cool. Hoping for some 3DS news to put me over the edge on buying one.

#6 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7612 posts) -

Hopefully they're announcing some more 3DS games, there's literally nothing I want to play on that system for the rest of the year. I'll be pretty annoyed if it's yet more hype for NSMB and Paper Mario.

Nothing? Really? No Luigis Mansion, Castlevania, Fire Emblem, Code Princess, or Kingdom Hearts?

Can´t wait for tonights conference, just bought a 3DS and I can´t be happier with it.

#10 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7612 posts) -

@Deusx: I'm somewhat interested in Luigi's Mansion, the first game was pretty fun, it's just not something I'd feel like paying full retail price for. Castlevania could be interesting, but without the Metroidvania game design it loses a lot of the appeal.

No interest in the Fire Emblem series and I'd rather gouge my eyes out than play Kingdom Hearts. I'd be happy with just Animal Crossing, dammit.

#11 Posted by Deusx (1879 posts) -

@WinterSnowblind: Yeah, if you don´t like those kinds of games theres nothing to look forward, I understand.

Btw, EVERYONE is going to be happy with a new Animal Crossing. Me included, maybe they anounce it today? Who knows, that would be awesome.

#12 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Animal Crossing, Earthbound remake and a new sidescrolling Metroid please.

#13 Posted by Chop (1964 posts) -

I'd assume they'll give at least a tidbit of information on AC. That and Fire Emblem seemed to be the games everyone was bitching about after E3.

Personally, I just want some dates on those 3DS games.

#14 Posted by Hizang (8534 posts) -

All I care about are 3DS games, I suppose I'll take a cool Wii game though. Finally there going to get a new F-Zero on Wii!

What? For realz? Another conference? Jeez, how desperate are they?

It's not desperation. It just seems to be a new PR tactic they've adopted.

This is the behaviour of a company that knows it's in trouble.... desperation

In trouble? Oh you would be surprised. Right now they have the best selling handheld on the market and are about to release a new console, I don´t see a company in trouble. They just want people to have a new perspective on their way of doing things, I think it´s great.

They're announcing their new tablet, the Nurface.

They're doing these Nintendo Direct things every two months or so. It's been a thing for a while.

So, uh, I'm hoping this turns into monthly fireside chats with Iwata. He could even have a segment where he reads one selected piece of fanfiction!

Animal Crossing 3DS is all I really want from this event. Or maybe a Majora's Mask remake for 3DS.

Animal Crossing is probably a safe bet since they didn't talk about it at E3 other than confirming it still is being made in an interview. They'll announce a Fire Emblem date or more details and HOPEFULLY have a few new games to announce (really hoping for a new handheld Zelda ...of any kind - or something totally new!)

All joking aside, I want that Professor Layton X Ace Attorney crossover to come to the US.

The Japanese focused one just finished, the US one started about 15 minutes ago. Here's the link if anyone needs it, and here's a summary of the Japanese one if anyone is interested

E3: Nintendo Land 
2 Weeks after E3: Super Smash Bros. and 3DS redesign 
 
What?

#45 Posted by Video_Game_King (34613 posts) -

I love how they commit five minutes to Mario's ability to gather coins and then say, "Oh, right, Fire Emblem. 2013."

#46 Edited by jewunit (1051 posts) -

@L1GHTN1N: @Fawkes: Cool! Thanks for the heads-up!

Edit: It seems that E.X. Troopers is not being prepped for an international release at this point on the 3DS. It looks like I will have to keep my eyes on the PS3 version for now.

#47 Posted by Artigkar (189 posts) -

So I am watching the europe stream of the nintendo conference and there is this trailer for a 3DS game called Heroes of ruin. The trailer has dubstep music...

#48 Posted by AngelN7 (2959 posts) -

So... Nintendo said "hey how about we show the things people wanted from us like info on the new Smash Brothers and some DS/3DS games in our E3 event" because E3 is not about the games is about ...showmanship!.

#49 Edited by RecSpec (3681 posts) -

Namco Bandai working on Smash Bros? 10-hit combos and Kirby jiggle physics confirmed. 
 
A really good showing though. Layton news made the night for me. 
 
Edit: At least we got some new Animal Crossing info...from the Japan stream.
