New crop of rumors for Nintendo’s E3 announcements surface

nintendo-e3-large

There’s been a lot of speculation about what’s going to come from Nintendo during this year’s E3 presentation, since the company bowed out of the traditional conference. Over on the IGN forums, a user by the name of 100 Year Old Gamer has been sharing some minor predictions with users who ask questions. The user claims to work for Nintendo in some capacity, though that can’t be verified. The important thing to note here is that in the past, his predictions have been more or less true.

So what’s some of the most interesting information revealed?

  • Nintendo will air three to five Nintendo Directs before and around E3, starting on May 30
  • 3D Mario will be “huge, bigger than any Mario game to date” and looks “unlike anything you’ve ever seen”
  • Retro’s new game will be first person, futuristic, and something everyone wants them to do
  • When asked if “a certain Super Saiyan” would join Smash Bros (since Namco is involved), he said it “hasn’t been decided yet, but there is a chance”

These are certainly interesting teases and the fact that several Nintendo Directs could be on the way will prove whether or not these other rumors are worth listening to. What do you think? Are you looking forward to any of these if they happen to be true? Let us know in the comments!

    • Colin Parks

      Mmmeettrrrooiiidddd mmaarriioooo yes!!!!!
      Now do cross chat via gamepad and everyone is happy!!!

  • DUNNY

    certain futuristic 3d hmmmm
    METRIOOOOOD!!!!

    • Magnus Eriksson

      That would be great. Ive got goose bumps <3

      • Magnus Eriksson

        On the other hand. Its probably Angry Birds in HD. Wouldnt surprise me…

        • Evang3los

          Hahaha. Just peed my pants

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      As long as it has multiplayer like hunters did, I’m set. That multiplayer kept me occupied for hundreds of hours.

      • Johny

        YEAH! so it wasnt only me ?? i LOVED the multiplayer. it was so awesome.. and every player had alittle different way of powers and GUI (the hud, touchscreen) .. i REALLY loved that.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          yeah, it was amazing

          • DUNNY

            the hunters where awesome
            sylux dont forget rip

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            Trace was my main man

      • Nintedward

        Proper multiplayer in a Metroid game would be fantastic.

        You could have customizable federation troopers as your character. And a mode where one plays as Samus and the rest try and hunt her down!
        hope these rumors come true !

        Edit- I always wanted a metroid spin-off where you play as the Galactic federation or something like that. imagine the possibilities ?
        Hope it is something like that. But I would equally like a New Samus based Metroid game.

        • AAAkabob

          And seeing as there’s the gamepad for the Wii you it could work. But they’d have to tread very careful less they anger and abandon the hardcore metro is fans to go for typical FPS

          • Nintedward

            Indeed. It would be hard to get right. Which is why they should use Federation troopers for the multiplayer and seperate it from the main game.

        • Wiita

          that would be too similar to something like the StarFox Assault multiplayer

        • Alex Damman

          okay, this is going to sound really weird at first, but what about an on-rails time-crisis style shooter using the wii u zapper (once it comes out) where you play as a soldier in a squad of troopers. there could be multiple maps and a detailed storyline. you could play solo with bots for your squadmates, but the game would encourage you to play online, and you could join someone else’s server or host one on your own console. the squads could vary in size depending on the stage of the storyline (maybe some troopers get killed off, or one squad merges with another) and there could be specific troopers with set loadouts, paths, and roles on the battlefield. the commander of the squad could be selected any number of ways (highest overall score on the worldwide leaderboards, whoever is hosting the server, completely random, popular vote, etc.). there wuold be points where the commander could choose from a variety of paths or formations for the troops to take, and even edit the path of a trooper mid-advance (if he’s given the chance), so it would be more interesting than the strictly on-rails time-crisis type stuff you get from most rail shooters. and since movement is automatic, that would leave the troopers free to concentrate on shooting and interacting with each other. i can see some very interesting situations where the wii u gamepad, mounted on the zapper, is used as a scope or ironsights, for inventory management, or for interacting with your squadmates by giving them status boosts, healing them, requesting help, or any other number of things depending on what your trooper’s abilities are.

          • Nintedward

            Yeah , that sounds really interesting. With the Wiiu zappers gyro scope capabilities and the Wiiu’s HD graphics , You could make AMAZING in rails games like that , for sure :)

          • Alex Damman

            also, the gamepad could be used for special abilities that are activated in certain segments of levels. like imagine if the “engineer class” troopers had to hack a database or door panel while the other troopers cover them; that hacking could be done on the gamepad. Or an assassination mission where the troops get into position, then the snipers have to weaken the target and cause chaos among the enemy while the assault troopers cover them, then the really powerful troops go in with the PED suit enhancements from MP3 and finish the job.

          • Shaise Mughal

            I want to see the release of many new Wii U accesories! Because every Nintendo console had many, especially the Wii!

      • Ugslick

        Star Fox Assault had better multiplayer =)
        And it kept me occupied for literally hundreds of hours.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          I LOVED STARFOX ASSAULT’S MULTIPLAYER WHY DID NO ONE ELSE BUT US? D:

      • shmuga9

        Never played Hunters, but my friend and I had a blast with the multiplayer in Prime 2.

      • AJ Chioino

        oh MAN, if the multiplayer is like hunters this is going to be a great year in gaming for me. i liked the ranking system too, grant it they can probably expand upon it a little more. also punish cheaters.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          Oh yes, the ranking system was awful. I remember cheating the system and resetting it after a loss though…. Wish I could find people to play with again. no one’s ever online..

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      “and something everyone wants them to do”

      Not that I’m saying people don’t want more Metroid by Retro, but I find it odd that a series that’s already had three games by Retro (in the last generation, no less), would be described as “something everyone wants them to do”. That’s like saying that the next 3D Mario platformer is “something everyone wants Nintendo to do”.

      • Fred

        What about Star Fox? Doesn’t everybody want them to do Star Fox?

        • Edward Dudley

          Sounds like Metroid to me. Hopefully after they complete this unannounced game they start on another one right away. So if its Metroid, then I hope they start on Starfox and Vice Versa.

          • Fred

            Hopefully Retro didn’t do Mario (nothing against Retro, but I don’t want a 1st person Mario)

          • Edward Dudley

            I highly doubt its another Mario game with the new 3D game coming, as well as Smash Bros and Mario Kart. At Launch they already had NSMBU so I think we can get our Mario Fix in with all those games. We need variety. Although after this year I hope they make another Mario RPG game.

          • Fred

            I was thinking more along the lines of what if they did the new 3D mario game.
            I’m just wondering what else it could be besides metroid.

          • Edward Dudley

            Just looked it up and Nintendo EAD Tokyo is making the 3d Mario game. The ones that made the galaxy games and 3ds’ Mario 3D Land. Maybe Retro is working on Donkey Kong in Space lol. Ok just kidding on DK lol

          • Fred

            The EAD Tokyo part is good to know

          • Edward Dudley

            Yeah I was just joking about the last part. It would be nice if this new game is Metroid then they do Starfox and then make a Donkey Kong 3d game.

          • Silent

            Donkey Kong riding on top of an arwing bounty hunting across the galaxy. In Space.Yeah

          • Edward Dudley

            They could call it Donkey Kong Galaxy lol. The plot: Someone put all the worlds bananas in Space and are holding them ransom.

          • Silent

            Genius.

          • Steve Anatala

            Its NOT Mario for a fact, not even a rumor. Its already been announced that Mario was coming, and Retro has NOT revealed what game they are working on.

          • Steve Anatala

            BUT they are revealing it soon

          • jcnba28

            EAD are making the new Mario! When has there ever been an FPS Mario game?!?

          • Fred

            That was my point I can’t imagine I’d like an FPS mario game

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          I thought that too, but FPS is not the first thing that comes to mind when I think Star Fox.

          Unless that Metroid x Star Fox rumor holds some water after all?

          • Fred

            That might be interesting!

          • ThunderGod_Cid

            Well…..Earthbound’s battle system was in first-person.
            Soooooo…..yeah, I’m still saying it’s Earthbound.

        • Guest

          Which ever one they are making, I hope they start on the next one ASAP. So if they are making Metroid, I hope they make Starfox next and vice versa.

        • DragonSilths

          Yes they do. I want Starfox over Smash Bros, HD Zelda, 3D Mario.

          • Steve Anatala

            I want in over them in the sense that I know we are getting those, no signs of Star Fox, and I REALLY want a good one, more like Star Fox 64 than the 2 after it

          • Silent

            To fight my urge of telling you ”THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU BRO!!!!” I will only say that I respect your opinion on what games you are expecting and I hope you are not disappointed. becauseyouknowyouwillbe.

          • DragonSilths

            I wont be disappointed. I have a insanely terrifying ability of guessing Nintendo related things. Retros game will be Starfox it is impossible for it to be anything else. Otherwise I will literally tear reality open and have every living thing cease to exsist.

          • Silent

            Ok, zeus.

          • Silent

            Very well, Zeussie.

        • jcnba28

          I’d rather Platinum Games do Starfox and leave Retro with the Metroid series since they’re so good at it! :D

          • DragonSilths

            What people dont get though is the Retro Studios Team that made Metroid Prime 1-3 no longer is fully at Retro Studios. The lead level designer from MP 1-3 works for 343i now and made Halo 4. So a Metroid Game from Retro nowadays wont be anything like the prime games.

        • Silent

          No

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Its Metroid, 100%. Remember Other M? Not made by Retro. Nobody liked it (I think it was ok, just not as great as the trilogy). Retro made the legendary trilogy, and everyone loved it. Everyone wants Retro to make Metroid.

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          Yeah, I know Other M wasn’t made by Retro. That doesn’t make it less odd to refer to another Retro Metroid game as “This is the thing you’ve REALLY wanted us to do and now we’re giving it to you!”

    • Ugslick

        “and something everyone wants them to do”

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Bingham/100000260255063 Chris Bingham

          Yeah… Star Fox

        • Steve Anatala

          Star Fox needs to come back properly FAR more than metroid. You had Prime 1-3 let Fox and the crew have a go. And I know some people love the Star Fox Adventures game and the other game after 64, but a lot of people truly want a traditional Star Fox in space, in an arwing, not running around on the ground.

          • I want Star Fox, but Star Fox is third person

          • Ugslick

            I wanted a TPS Star Fox, take the concepts from Assault, improve them, tweak the gameplay to perfection, expand the world and give it a scope never before seen in Star Fox games (something Halo-ish) and we have a great modern resurrection of a beloved franchise. An FPS could work, I would have thought they were going to stick to TPS in Starfox though… Im still convinced it IS Star Fox though.

          • Wiita

            Assault imo was as good as 64. it just needed a better onfoot-vehicle balance and truthfully most gameplay was actually either in a LandMaster or Arwing. SF Assault had the best concept in the series.

          • Ugslick

            Yeah, I used to play multiplayer with my cousins with no vehicles.. and it was pretty awesome. Its hard to get back into now, but just 2-4 years or so ago, that was all we played when we got together. Starfox Assault’s multiplayer..

      • http://twitter.com/Jamie_Clabon Jamie Clabon

        first person starfox? More likely metroid, or unlikelyer (shut up-that’s a word) Fzero. I’m excited for any of them though so
        HURRAY

          Unlikelyer :P

    • Alex

      It could be Metroid, Giest, or a new game. Looks like we have to wait and see.

    • jcnba28

      If you only knew how much I want a new Metroid first person game!!!

  • Zombie_Andrew

    YES!!!! 5 Nintendo Direct’s?!?!? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

      5 nintendo directs > 1 E3 conference and if you disagree you haven’t watched a nintendo direct am i right?

      • Nintedward

        The last big Wiiu direct was much more entertaining than Nintendo’s e3 2012. When they showed Monoliths soft X as well as the other stuff I nearly shat my pants with excitement.

      • Zombie_Andrew

        Wonder if each Direct focuses on different IPs, time periods (Summer 2013, Fall 2013, Winter 2013, 2014) or 3DS and Wii U

    • Guest

      I feel like a terrible Nintendo gamer by asking this but……..What”s a saiyan? Please be gentle. HA!

      • Relick

        Powered up versions of people in Dragon Ball.

      • Johny

        they’re like super strong versions of hmm fighters in one of most popular and well known anime of all time all around the world Dragon ball

      • Super Buu

        Saiyans are a proud warrior race from the planet Vegeta and Goku is one of them.

      • Michael Jurado

        a super saiyan is what super sonic ripped off XD

        • Steve Anatala

          haha very true

      • Off.Sh

        Its a human-like race that have monkey tails, where Goku and Vegeta , from Dragon Ball Z, belongs. They have some abilities like turning into a Giant Gorilla called Oozarus. This only happens when they see the full moon light and have their tails (because it can be cutted off). They have another state called supersaiyan that is exactly the same as SONIC does: Turning into gold. This state enhances their abilities, physical strength and stamina.

      • Revolution5268

        you don’t have to be a N gamer to know whats a saiyan. Its a race of fighter form dbz.

    • Super Buu

      I will turn him into candy anyways

      • Steve Anatala

        Vegetto will slap you around :p

      • Revolution5268

        bitch please you got beat up by candy.

    • Steve Anatala

      Vegetto and I would die but I know it ain’t him :p

  • liamdawe

    If smash bros has “a certain super saiyan” it will be a insta-buy for me :D

    • Jeffery02

      I’d prefer Monkey D. Luffy, but this is an insta-buy for me regardless! :-D

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=640298366 Timothy Smith

        idk, as much as I love Luffy (I’m dressing up as him this comic-con lol) I don’t think he would fit. He’s not a nintendo character. Yes, Snake and Sonic aren’t really either, but they have games on Nintendo systems.

        • Steven

          That’s more or less my logic lol. There’s probably been a DBZ or DB game (I’ve never owned one since my parents didn’t like the show), but Goku and Luffy don’t seem to fit in this game.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=640298366 Timothy Smith

            exactly my point. And there’s been a few on the portable Nintendo systems, but none on the wii or gamecube that I can remember. I could be wrong though

        • RandomInternetDude

          There are one piece games on the wii too if you want to go with that logic

          • Steve Anatala

            My friend and roomate watches one piece but to be quite honest I don’t think One Piece is big enough and popular enough to really be an attraction. To anime fans yes. But even non anime fans love Goku and he has been around way longer. Most people know goku, most don’t know this luffy you speak of, myself included. I realize just cause I don’t watch or know doesn’t mean nobody else does, but you can’t deny DBZ is way more famous and well known. And I’m not saying One Piece isn’t good or anything, my friend loves it and hes my anime friend who knows about stuff way before most people in america do and has good taste so I trust his opinion. I just don’t think as stated above that luffy or anyone from the show would turn as many heads as you think.

          • RandomInternetDude

            Many gamers are tired of dbz as its a franchise thats been milked so much while One piece is still somewhat fresh in the gaming department. Looking at the recent success of the One Piece: Pirate Warriors franchise, I’d say one piece is a big enough and popular enough attraction. The fact that you’ve at least heard about it should give you an idea of how much influence and attention it already has. I’d argue Dbz doesnt have as much pull for many gamers to go out and make a purchase because of it because most gamers have already had their full of dbz whereas theres a hotter demand for one piece characters that could make gamers want to make a purchase because of a featured character from the series.

          • RandomInternetDude

            Goku has been around way longer so people already tired of it as its been rehashed many times. Kinda like the same way people complain about mario being rehashed. So even though Goku may turn heads because hes popular, most of the heads turned arent too motivated to buy a title because he’s included. One piece on the other hand, turns enough heads that actually will go buy a title because he’s included. If you dont think one piece is big/popular enough just go look at the recent pirate warrior series success. Even the fact that you are at least aware of this character called luffy even though you havent watched the anime should tell you something about its popularity.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=640298366 Timothy Smith

            I did not know that. And I guess I just don’t see Luffy in the mix. He’s my favorite anime character, but I just can’t see him fighting mario

        • Jeffery02

          One Piece has shown up on the Wii, especially in Japan. Regardless though, there is no reason why it COULDN’T happen, even if it is doubtful. I don’t disagree with you overall though.

      • http://www.facebook.com/captainmarvelousdatpirate.gokaired.9 Captain-Marvelous AllForgotten

  • Noel Canales

    Never before seen Mario that is different. Wow so they must have heared my idea about mario finally being able to use a plunger as a weapon that he can swing, shoot and even jump on like a bouncey trampeline when he shoots it on walls. Finally Mario will use toold other than fireballs and same old same old, Right?

  • Benjamin Blaine West

    Something to be noted is 100 year old gamer has made predictions in the past that have indeed, came true. The details he gives are more likely than not most of the time.

    • Fred

      What other predictions has he given?

    • Revolution5268

      like what, i never heard of this person before.

  • Morits Lian

    Goku in Smash Bros.
    Wow.

    • Steven

      As awesome as Goku is, I don’t think he should be in Smash Bros. :/ They would be better off to simply make a DB fighting game IMO.

      • Jeffery02

        Ever heard of Battle Stadium D.O.N.? I think Namco should remake it and launch it in America on the Wii U. As long as it doesn’t coincide with the SSB launch window. Lol!

        • Ernie Sanguyo

          D.O.N is awesome and remake for wii u would be nice.

        • That Guy

          are you serious having Goku in super smash brothers would be awesome.Plus i don’t know if you noticed but the DBZ games nowadays basically play themselves.The last good game IMO was Boudaki Tenkaichi 3

          • Jeffery02

            I’m just Saiyan that if Goku doesn’t end up in SSB, then they could always remake D.O.N., or better yet, make a D.O.N. DLC pack for SSB.

          • Steven

            I still disagree. He fits in as much as snake did. Which is not a lot :P they should simply make a DBz fighting game and leave Smash Bros to be Smash Bros.

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      I thought all 3rd party characters considered for SSB had to meet the following requirement:

      a) must have originated as a video game character

      b) must have appeared on a Nintendo console

      Goku doesn’t meet the first point, so doesn’t that shoot down any chances he has?

      • Guest

        Actually, he does because there have been several games in the Famicom and a few on the Super Famicom.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Dragon_Ball_video_games

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          “a) must have originated as a video game character”

          As in “he must be primarily a video game character and must have made his first main appearance in a video game.”

          Banjo is a legit (yet impossible due to being owned by a competitor) candidate because he is and always has been a video game character, and he has appeared in a game on a Nintendo console. Ezio is a legit candidate because he first appeared in a video game and has appeared in a Nintendo console game (Assassin’s Creed 2: Discovery for the Nintendo DS). That Hong Kong guy from Sleeping Dogs is not a legit candidate because while he is and always has been a video game character, he has not appeared on a Nintendo console. James Bond is not a legit candidate because while he has appeared in several Nintendo console games, he originally appeared in novels written by Ian Fleming.

          Goku would fall under the James Bond case: Appeared in a Nintendo game, but originally started out as a manga character.

      • Guest

        Also he appeared on the GameCube as well as the Wii so he could be allowed in Super Smash Bros.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Bingham/100000260255063 Chris Bingham

        I think the 2nd Rule is the only one a character must do.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Bingham/100000260255063 Chris Bingham

        Remember Robo from Super Smash Bros Brawl? He was never in any game and didn’t originate as a game character yet he was allowed in so really the second rule is the only one rule

        • Steve Anatala

          Are you talking about ROB the character? OR is Robo one of the trophies or something? If you mean the actual fighter ROB, then although he isn’t a video game character he is a Nintendo character and it was a throw back to people from the 80s who have been with Nintendo since and remember old ROB. I give him the pass plus if you know how to use him you can wreck house do to his delayed timing. Really throws people off.

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          He was a Nintendo-owned peripheral used exclusively for video games. NINTENDO-OWNED. As in FIRST-PARTY.

      If they put Goku in Smash bros, I would actually get it, and become godly at his character.

    • ronin4life

      If Goku is a playable character before Issac or Lyndis, I will vomit an endless sea of blood.

      Unless the game turns out to be a Jump Ultimate/Smash Bros. crossover, with the best of Gamings Nintendo and the best of manga’s shonen jump in mortal conflict…

    What About Grand Theft Auto On Wii U That Would Be Awesome But Chances Are It Won’t : (
    Oh Well Still Gotta Love Nintendo Im Still Enjoying My Wii U : )

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Bingham/100000260255063 Chris Bingham

      We are still getting Watch Dogs which is sort of like a Futuristic version of GTA

      • Parish Gilliam

        Yea At least Right? Lol looks promising.

    • Johny

      in my honest opinion Watch_dogs look more interesting to me than GTA V … it looks much more unique and fresh

      • Parish Gilliam

        Idk I Been Always A Fan of GTA Games And They Always Prove me wrong when a new game comes out but Watch Dogs looks cool too im more excited for GTAV Than Dogs Honestly.

        • Johny

          yeah gta games have pretty much been pretty amazing.. all of them. but…. idk.. call this gamers intuition but… to me, it looks alike the franchise is getting alittle dull..
          Look at San Andreas.. .that game was a masterpiece… and still one of best games ever. and it brought so much new to the franchise.
          Then IV was… hmm.. some say its amazing.. i just find it…. good i dont know.. it didnt impress me as much, as it didnt really show much innovation but it was still great. If GTA V will be as good as IV, then its fine… but i have a feeling it wont be much more than greatly improved physics, crash physics, vehicle mechanics, graphics engine, new world and more vehicles and weapons and overall “more” stuff you can allaround do. and wel… thats it… i see it more as “expansion” and not a revolutionary sequel/new innovative game and a “whole new” experience.
          I hope im wrong, and i hope im just being a negative looking fanboy who is slightly dissapointed V isn’t coming to wii u :)

          • Parish Gilliam

            Yea. I just Can’t Get Enough GTA Lol And Their Campaign Stories are pretty damn good as well.. Lol I hope you’re wrong too johny lol but you’re most likely speaking truth.. I wish GTAV Came to Wii U It would help Sells At least.

          • Johny

            well im not worried about wii u sales :) sure they would be larger if gta was on wii u, but wii u is going to do more than fine without it. trust me :)

          • Parish Gilliam

            I Trust You Johnny.

    • Nintedward

      GTA has that certain style which keeps us all coming back to it. Watchdogs looks a bit more Sinister and gritty which could either be a good thing or it could end up all bland like AC3….

      I don’t anticipate Watchdogs will be better than GTAV but i think Watchdogs will be an excellent game and great for Wiiu owners to get. GTAV will most likely be a masterpiece…

      • Parish Gilliam

        Can’t Say It Better Than That Nintendward : )

      • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

        I hope GTA5 is good as I enjoyed the series in the past but Watch Dogs looks like something fresh in that game type. I have put watch dogs on my wishlist for the fall which seems to be growing and may be a bigger list depending on what Nintendo has slated for the fall/christmas season.

        • Nintedward

          Absolutely! I’ll be getting both,

  • Wayne Beck

    3D Mario will be “huge, bigger than any Mario game to date” and looks “unlike anything you’ve ever seen”

    They said the same thing about the next Zelda. Sounds like Nintendo is taking up the Go Big or Go Home philosophy..

    I’m in..

    • Jeffery02

      I hope that Nintendo isn’t focused on 1st party so much that 3rd party support suffers on the Wii U. Nintendo is great, but it wouldn’t be fair if they have to keep the Wii U floating by themselves.

      • TheAverageGuyTAG

        “I hope that Nintendo isn’t focused on 1st party so much that 3rd party support suffers on the Wii U.”

        No offense, but 3rd party had their chance to keep the Wii U floating these past few months; they completely blew it.

        • Jeffery02

          Sounds like 3rd party support is between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, they do not want to release anything on the Wii U now because they think the Wii U is sinking. But, on the other hand, they won’t want to release games later because Nintendo’s first party games will eclipse the third party games. Maybe Nintendo’s games are just too good for third party support to have a chance. Lol

          • Elem187

            By ignoring the Wii U now, they are only hurting their future games elsewhere.

            i personally wont buy anything from EA on any of my other platforms, because of their attitude…. So F EA.

            If you want people on Nintendo consoles to purchase your games, you are going to have to put your games on the system even if it sells like poop, because you need to foster and build an audience for your games… Ubisoft gets it. By Ubisoft putting their games on the Wii U no matter what, they are teaching that audience to look for their games in the future.

            EA by not putting their games on the system, is forever forcing Nintendo gamers not to look for their titles in the future.

            For all we know, Nintendo’s next console might be a super big hit, and those customers will only recognize Ubisoft and Activision titles, while EA wont find any success on it.

            IT doesn’t cost very much money to port a game over, at least not more than 250,000, and you only need to sell 8 or 9 thousand copies to break even. Which even the worse selling software on the Wii U at least sold twice that (Injustice sold 20k)

            Although Criterion probably put ALOT more work into their port of NFS that it probably cost ALOT more than then a quarter million, and with only 20k sales worldwide, that particular game probably didn’t make its money back, but the rest of the ports on the Wii U more than made back their money.

      • Edward Dudley

        In order for most of the 3rd developers to stop making excuses such as “They haven’t sold enough home consoles”. They had to make the games that most people want.

      • Fred

        Considering that 70% of the video games I own were published by Nintendo it’s not difficult for me to imagine Nintendo floating the Wii U by themselves

        • Jeffery02

          I know Nintendo CAN and I know that they will. My point is though that it’s not fair to Nintendo to have third party support to blow up in their face like this. Nintendo will do it themselves, but they shouldn’t HAVE to. Third party devs really dropped the ball (make it the whole sportsdom) on this.

          • Fred

            How is that unfair to Nintendo, IT’S THEIR PRODUCT! If other companies want to work with them then great, but nobody has any obligation to put games on the 3DS and Wii U except Nintendo.
            Granted we all love it (and certainly Nintendo loves it even more) when other companies decide to make games for these systems, but it has nothing to do with fairness and they have no obligation to do it.

          • Jeffery02

            I’m just saying that Nintendo tried to get third party support. Sure they could have done a better job, but they still tried. They didn’t deserve for it to blow up in their face like that is all I’m saying. Ubisoft is the only company that is even trying, hopefully it pays off massively so we (Wii U owners) can give a big F-U to all the developers that didn’t make it onto the Wii U ship.

          • Fred

            You and I and every other Wii U owner is in control of that. If you want Ubisoft to make out like a bandit so that the other companies with they would have also been “all-in” buy Zombie U, Rabbids Land, Rayman Legends, My Shape Fitness, Assassins Creed, Just Dance, Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth, ESPN Sports Connection.
            Honestly, I can’t in good conscience buy all those games. I will buy Rayman Legends, and I’ll consider Rabbids Land and My Shape Fitness, but the others don’t interest me.

      • Ugslick

        The big third party devs are backing out BECAUSE they see the Wii U in a position of weakness. Nintendo needs to show their strong hand to get people on board. On the other side of the spectrum we have tons of indies excited about the eShop on both 3DS and Wii U, and its only going to get better on that front.

        • ThunderGod_Cid

          Third-parties back out even when Nintendo is in a strong position, which was the case for the Wii and to certain extent every Nintendo system since the N64.

          Citing reasons that Nintendo’s 1st party titles were their biggest competition on the system, that they would completely overshadow their releases by a very large margin.

          So Nintendo is damned if they do, damned if they don’t.

          If Nintendo wants the WiiU to do well, then they’re gonna have to do it all themselves(again).

          • Elem187

            You are acting like there is zero 3rd party support…. Ubisoft and Capcom is supporting the Wii U quite aggressively, and Activision, WB, SEGA, Squeeenix are at least bringing some titles over.

            Just because EA decided to bow out, doesn’t mean shiite…. I mean come on, EA isn’t the only mega publisher in the world.

            Nintendo is at least getting support from 6 of the largest publishers in the business (Ubisoft/Acitivision/WB/SEGA/Capcom/SquareEnix), so its not like there is ZERO support… One major publisher and a few smaller devs wont mean anything. Nintendo will never get parity of 3rd party support, but that is more than made up with the MASSIVE 1st party output that Nintendo can squeeze out… I’m not losing any sleep over EA.

        • Jeffery02

          Too bad that the first party games will intimidate third parties more than encourage them. That’s how it happened on other Nintendo systems.

    • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

      They can do that now since they have essentially tripled the capacity their game discs can hold. Always thought that Zelda series even on the Wii/gamecube era had a pretty decent amount of content and hours of gameplay. Of course I am the type of player that will overturn every rock, break every pot, cut every piece of grass, and check every tree, wall and corner for secrets.

      • Steve Anatala

        Me too lol

      • Nintedward

        lool. I’m like that with everything. ESPECIALLY Zelda games. Slowly clear through the game. Sometimes I use a notepad to write down things I have to come back to :) . Tha’s how I 100% metroid prime without a guide!

    • Elem187

      They said the same thing about the Galaxy games, but they just happened to be right.
      I really cannot imagine anything beyond the galaxy games. I think thats going to be EAD’s peak.

    • beerkin

      Ya. I blew a figurative wad when I read that. Also very excited that they are doing a brand new 3D Mario. Sunshine 2 would have been great but I would rather have an HD remaster of that. Something new that we have never seen before sounds extremely promising.

  • indirect76

    What is a saiyan?

    • beerkin

      Something from Dragonball Z I think. Had to google it.

    • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

      It’s a high lvl super powered character from the Dragon Ball Anime series, they have a super high “power lvl” as it was referred to in the anime, pretty much like a PS4 compared to a playstation 2, I guess that’s a good comparision.

      http://m.youtube.com/index?gl=NL&hl=nl&desktop_uri=%2F%3Fgl%3DNL%26hl%3Dnl#/watch?v=yeW1CF_T3WA

      This video shows a super saiyan transformation from the Dragonball Anime.

    • Adrian

      It’s an alien “warrior” race in the dragon ball Z Universe.

    • indirect76

      Oh, well let’s hope they don’t include that. I’ve never really cared for Dragonball.

  • Jeffery02

    I vote DLC! So much potential to be the best SSB ever! They have
    stated that they don’t want to have more characters than what was in
    Brawl, but hopefully they will eventually release a Melee and Brawl DLC
    to give us all of the characters and stages from the previous games that do not make it into the launch release. They should also allow other companies to submit their own characters and stages to Nintendo so that Nintendo can balance them, release them, and make money for the company that submitted it. Anyone else agree?

  • CharmanderRulz

    Sorry to be a downer but most of this sounds like the obvious. Other than the metroid hint platformers (and most any type of game) will tend to get bigger maps latter on and “hasn’t been decided yet” can’t be proved wrong even it it was or wasn’t true. I’m just happy it’s looking like the pre E3 event will be on the Wii U !

    • Ace J

      so Goku in smash was obvious to you? yeah right…

      • CharmanderRulz

        I take it you can read? yeah right… (sorry if you didn’t mean it this way but you sounded cocky) “hasn’t been decided yet” and this “chance” sounds like a ‘it’s just as likely as anyone’ and not a “IT’S OVER 9,000% CONFIRMED SO RUN WITH IT!!!”

        • Ace J

          uhh……..what?? lol

          • CharmanderRulz

            I will put it simply for you. Even if we pretend this rumor was true (despite it coming from someone who just makes comments on websites like you or I) the quote “hasn’t been decided yet” means they haven’t decided the playable characters. Do you follow this basic logic? if so you will see why he just said mostly obvious or vague things.

    • Ice Climbers

      That pre-E3 event IS about the Wii U. Its a Wii U Software Showcase. The official E3 Facebook page said so.

  • DemonRoach

    Lame. and FPS for retro is a fail waiting to happen.

      all 1st person are not shooter kid. go back to CoD

    • CharmanderRulz

      Who even said it was a shooter? Some how a game being “first person” makes it a fail? Even if it is an FPS multiple FPS’s can play totally different from each other. The most common (and easy to understand) example would be COD to Portal AKA kids camping to intensely puzzling platform game.

    • Michael Jurado

      dude you are so trolling retro made the prime squeals and in case you haven’t played them they are games that hold up even too this very date and they were made for the gamecube so too say its a fail waiting to happen just shows that you are trolling … this is the last time i respond to a troll seriously -_- this comment was a waste of time everyone already knows what i said >_<

    Can’t wait to see what Nintendo plans for this next conference. Lights are on MS and Sony, so Big N has do something special to grab a bit of attention (other than hardcores). I think they are smart enough to pull this off. Sony and MS are investing hugely on their specs and a few super shiny games…most likely to turn out into super crap in the end with nothing new, just more graphics – hurrayy that’s revolution in gaming!! (sarcasm) so, in the end, Big N could turn the whole place upside down with a few decent innovations. they really are the only ones to bring something new on the table.

    I don’t believe it just because of the super saiyan thing… Nintendo has a said that the only way for characters to be in smash bros is that they must have STARTED as a videogame character… Not an anime. And that they must have appeared on a nintendo console at some point. But man… if they have goku in this…. This generation of gaming will be over and Sony/microsoft will start working on their next system

    • sup3rnoah

    WHAT?! Goku in Super Smash Bros?! There’s no way that can be right!

    • Michael Jurado

      Masahiro Sakurai (lead developer for super smash bros) has stated he wants to include characters from the realm of capcom the only issue is balancing their powers too nintendos standards of super smash. Sakurai also said he has looked back at super smash bros dojo (official ssb website) looking at past development and wants to introduce old school nintendo characters. Along with that he knows 3rd party characters need to be introduced to broaden the audience of super smash bros but, he knows he cant include so many all willy nilly since it will lose focus of the game. Bottom line is Sakurai knows what he is doing, expect a super smash bros like no other but, retains the same frantic gameplay as previous installments. Sooooooo yes, there is a slim chance of Goku making it too the new smash bros after all Goku is Namcos mario and is more popular than superman (one of the worlds most iconic characters)

    Goku in a ssb game………………….AWESOME!!

  • Michael Jurado

    articles years ago about super smash brothers brawl said no anime characters EVER… But, thanks to Roy and Marth and the demand to include them in SSBB + the team up with Namco. There is a huge chance that these feelings have changed, look at all the japanese rpg support (isn’t there like 6 Jrpgs coming to wii u i’m sure I red that some where) nintendo is basically inviting them to develop and making it cheap. Another factor to consider is namco’s go too hero is son goku and they are teaming up with nintendo in a fighting game so it would be logical to include him in the series. Especially, since they stated months ago that the new super smash bros will have no clones (thank god) In all honesty nintendo + namco + a new super smash bros = victory for nintendo vs all other consoles and everything else that comes for nintendo = over kill which is why nintendo will dominate this gen’s war plain and simple :)

  • Geoffrey Tasker

    I said this somewhere else but it fits better here.

    I would personally love to see nintendo break the mold and make their next handheld a Tablet device with updated versions of the 3ds sliders and can function as a Wii U controller. it also should be able to access android market, its too perfect of an idea not to use.

    and bring back the game boy brand while you’re at it, since it would only be one screen.

    One thing that Nintendo could do to really blow the top off of E3 would be to offer demos of the games they present via the eShop channel. Could you imagine the reactions if folks were watching an E3 Nintendo Direct that showed the new Mario and Reggie says “Come try out our demo. It’ll be available for download on the eShop right after this Nintendo Direct.” Can’t speak for the rest of you guys, but I’d go Nucking Futs with excitement if that happened.

    It’s cool to get hyped and all but a healthy dose of skepticism is needed too. The important thing is that we’re only three weeks or so away from the authentic reveals so we don’t have to get geeked for what could be total fake outs much longer.

    looking forward to see the new 3d mario game !!! IN HD!!!!!!!!

  • Oum’Bushay

    I doubt Goku would ever be in super smash bros, he doesn’t fit…

      Play super smash bros Flash 2

      • Oum’Bushay

        Are you Fuccking stupid… That is non-canon you stupid idiot

        • Silent

          To state your point, you have to rely on insulting. If Im stupid then im sorry but you must be a butthurt douche.

          • Oum’Bushay

            Wow, I was jking… Why do you take it so hard, just because he is on a fan-made flash game doesn’t mean he would be in the legit thing, sorry for insulting you though.

          • Silent

            Hmmm…Im sorry but I could not perceive that you were actually joking. I apologize

    They should have 4 directs. One for 3DS news, one for Wii U news, one for the eshop new, and ,a shorter, one for exclusive 3rd party games. 3DS should be more about barely talked about (Yoshi/Legend of Zelda) and unannounced games (Metroid,F-Zero?) rather than announced ones. Wii U must focused on all the games, announced and not) and should be the longest. They need to talk about the games like Yoshi and Fire Emblem. eShop would be app/virtual console (gamecube games), and new games. And 3rd party is obvious. Footage of Bayonetta, and talk about X. And throw in some multi plats, like talk about exclusive features and get the word out that it is on Wii U. If done like this, Wii U will have chance against 720, and PS4.

    • Ice Climbers

      X isn’t a 3rd party game. It’s 1st party.

      • Kaihaku

        Heh, I thought Monolith Soft was second party but it looks like they are first party now. Thanks, learned something new.

    Goku in Super Smash Bros! I’m IN! KAMEHAMEHA!

    I hope both Namco and Nintendo know how the world will shake if Goku is put on Super Smash Bros. This should be the best selling Smash bros to date if Nintendo plays their cards right. And with Smash Bros., you just can’t run out of cards.

  • http://www.facebook.com/BenTheDemon Ben Holt

    I knew this was fake as soon as Goku was mentioned. He doesn’t fit Sakurai’s criteria, and anyone that even remotely keeps up with Smash Bros. news knows that any mention of Goku is complete and utter bullshit.

    • smashbrolink

      A lot of people said that about Snake and Sonic, too, though, before they were both announced.
      Besides….Earthbound is coming to Wii U.
      If something like that, which used to be literally considered IMPOSSIBLE by legal and many other standards, can happen, then Goku joining Smash Bros is not anywhere near being far-fetched.

      • Patrick Francis

        Except the fact that the character must FIRST appear in a video game.
        Since I am pretty sure Goku started in a Manga and/or cartoon it doesn’t meet the requirements for a “Brawl of all Video Game Characters” which is the point of super smash bros.

        I wouldn’t mind seeing Earth Worm Jim, or Banjo Kazooie though.

        • phaedruss

        • smashbrolink

          Actually, I believe the term is that they just have to have had their own game on a Nintendo system to be eligible.
          They didn’t have to appear as a character in a game first.

  • Silent

    ”Retro’s new game will be first person, futuristic, and something everyone wants them to do”

    Metroid.

    ”When asked if “a certain Super Saiyan” would join Smash Bros (since Namco is involved), he said it “hasn’t been decided yet, but there is a chance”

    OMG GOKUUU!!!

    of course the new 3d mario will be unlike anything weve ever seen. galaxy was unlike anything weve ever seen, and this one has to top it, otherwise itll be a failure.
    also i hope to god they dont have goku in ssb.

  • LonDonE247

    Metroid is by far my all time best franchise,and i only went out and bought my wii-u at launch for over £350 for a metroid prime 4,or maybe metroid dredd on wii-u, i can think of no other developer better suited to make a hd first person game on wii-u which runs at a blazing 60fps and shows everyone that wii u IS NOT UNDER POWERED! an that wii-u can deliver a true next gen experience, hell even to this day playing metroid prime trilogy on my wii in 480p looks amazing, the art,the crisp graphics, the silky smooth 60fps frame rate is a testament to retro talent,please lord let the secret retro game be a metroid prime game! i wish this rumour is true,the game pad and wiimote plus are perfect for a metroid prime game, and Nintendo needs a first person game, to appeal to the masses, i just want it to be more like prime 1, that game had the best atmosphere and immersion i have ever experienced! also i would love it if it had a fully fleshed out multi player mode, that would be mind blowing!

    >During an investors meeting of Nintendo:
    Recently
    some publisher have shown interest to bring their game to Nintendo
    WiiU, and as a company, we would like to provide a wide range of
    experience to our costumers, but, after much debating, we reached to the
    conclusion that some of this publishers policies dont fit with Nintendo
    long standing tradition to delivery quality products above anything
    else. We regret this choice, but we will not betray our costumers trust
    on providing just the best of the best instead of some half baked
    product, After all we are Nintendo, and not the Worst Company of
    America.

  • heavenshitman1

    If they reveal a new Metroid. And I’m sure they will, because I’ve heard of squat about what Retro’s has been doing for a home console in ages (they must have had a lot of time to work on their premiere game)
    ; this will blow WiiUs popularity into possibly the stratosphere. And the WiiUs future may possibly be secured 100%
    Then Sony n M’soft will be stuck on the back foot trying to convince half the populace why the next Killzone and Halo will be so important

  • Scott

    I find it hard to believe that 3D Mario is going to be “huge, better than any Mario game to date” and “unlike anything you’ve ever seen” if they really are going down the rushed-to-release path like they did with 3D Land.

    • Scott

      He didn’t originate in a Video Game, he should not be allowed in Smash Bros.

      That’s my opinion.

        sakurai can choose if he wanted to, look at snake he end up in smash bros due to creator request.

  • http://www.facebook.com/eric.degrechie.3 Eric DeGrechie

    This sounds too good to be true. Imagine what a new Metroid Prime could be like on better hardware, not to mention with the gamepad.

    I hope they make the new Mario an open world of the entire Mushroom Kingdom and fill it with side missions, but keep the gameplay true to a 3d Mario experience.

    StarFox needs another game, the franchise hit the floor after one TRULY bad game, Command was bad but it wasn’t so bad it would kill it off forever. Nintendo Cmon.

    Another… ANOTHER Metroid?! As if butchering the series three times then setting it on fire with Other M wasn’t enough. Give the poor girl a vacation.

    That alone I call the new rumors bunk.

    • RicardJulianti

      The artists they have hired seem to make Raven Blade more likely imo. I mean….look at this: http://beastofoblivion.deviantart.com/gallery/

    I don’t believe any rumors…. its a bunch of crap.
    I wouldn’t let this guy get our hopes up… I know how talented EAD Tokyo is, but do you really think they could possibly make a game any better than Super Mario Galaxy 2? It was easily the highest rated game of , well forever, so how do you make a game better than the best game every created?
    The idea EAD can make something we haven’t seen before makes it sound too unbelievable… so I’ll hold judgement until I see some gameplay of the next 3D Mario.

  • stealth20k

    so vague they are true hes a hack

  • MujuraNoKamen

    Awesome, I hope this is true but I won’t get my hopes up too high, although it does sound pretty believable.
    While I’m here, why’s there so much hate going on down here? so many people bashing 3D Metroid, as great as Super Metroid and the 2D ones are the prime games are so atmospheric, and well made and just amazing, let’s not forget they have been more successful critically and commercially than other Metroids so if you prefer 3D fine but all signs show that FPS was a good move for the franchise.
    Why the hate for Goku in SSB? sure he isn’t really a game character but he’d a great piece of fan-service to DBZ lovers out there and as long as they can make his moves work in the game then why the hell not!?

    • MujuraNoKamen

      I’m disappointed to hear no word on Starfox though, I’ve said for ages now I’d rather a new Metroid than a Starfox so I’m glad to hear the Retro rumours point towards Metroid but Starfox really needs a reboot. It’s been so long since we’ve hand an SF game, even longer since we’ve had a true SF game but they could surely do it.
      I hope retro are working on both Metroid and Starfox, I’m aware the
      chances are slim but Retro have done some expanding recently and they’ve
      proven with Metroid and Donkey Kong that they have a knack for reviving old series and setting the standard for them too.
      I really hope Retro or some other part of Ninty becomes like Rareware in
      the good days (before Microsoft executed them) Rare were great at making
      new IPs (Banjo, Conker, Perfect Dark) and reviving old series (with the
      original DKC game – bit like retro in this respect) and Ninty needs
      that. Series like F-Zero, Starfox and to a lesser extent; Metroid and DK
      have been quiet for a while now and are crying out for more attention
      and although I’m not going to start on the whole “Ninty rehash the same
      IPs” crap, a new franchise couldn’t hurt, correct me if I’m wrong but
      wasn’t their last “big” IP Pikmin in 2001.

  • RicardJulianti

    Why not include instances where his predictions came true? You can’t just say something like that without providing proof.

    I’m not doubting his claims….but saying “Oh he’s right because he’s been right before” without providing the info hurts both his and your credibility.

    I too have heard rumors about Metroid. I was talking with a gent that claimed to work for Retro, claims that were backed up by others from that site who said he’s been a good informant in the past. He said that he REALLY wanted to answer our questions about what Retro is working on, but Nintendo would probably kill him in his sleep. He did say that they would probably announce it at E3, and that we should probably be wearing adult diapers when we see it.

  • HerosLight

    Laughed at the 4th bullet point, even if its just a rumor. There is absolutely no way that is happening.

    The only fitting Namco Representatives to join SSB is Tales Of series. Mainly Symphonia, Original Graces, Hearts, Innocence, Phantasia, and Dawn of the New World as they were originally on Nintendo Consoles/Handhelds.

    Still hoping Lloyd Irving gets a chance to join.

    • gkhornung

      Or you know, Pac-Man. A character that is actually iconic.

    • TalesOfBS

      Did you already forgot what NAMCO did in the past years?

      Wii:
      Tales of Graces= They didn’t gave a single fuck about Wii owners and only released a incomplete game in Japan (they didn’t even attempted to use motion controls) just to make some money to fund a “PS3 complete version”.

      ToS: Dawn of the New World = Shit. Cliché story. Bad graphics. Bad use of motion controls. This bad game was a attempt to milk the Wii fan base.

      3DS:
      Tales of The Abyss: “3DS? Nintendo? fuck it! Lets just give it a crappy PS2 port!”

      DS:
      Tales of Innocence = “It was a nice DS game… but fuck it. LETS REMAKE IT FOR OUR LOVELY PSVITA!” (yes, it doesn’t mater that the system had a install base even smaller than the Wii U)

      Tales of Hearts = “LOLOL PSVITA PERFECT VERSION AGAIN!”

      Tales of the Tempest = A shitty spinoff game made to milk the DS fan base.

      GameCube:
      Tales of Symphonia: What a nice game. Also, did you know that, despite the fact that the GameCube install base was so tiny when compared to the huge PS2 install base, this game managed to sell 1.1 million copies on the system, beating ALL the other Tales Of games till today? Incredible huh? Wouldn’t it be awesome if NAMCO at least re-released the game in HD for the Wii U? yes, it would but…. LOLOL SORRY, HD REMAKE OF SYMPHONIA 1 AND 2 ALREADY ON THE WAY EXCLUSIVELY FOR OUR LOVELY PS3!

      *Also, apply everything above to the Xbox 360 Tales Of BETA games.

      ALSO, despite the fact that Tales Of games always had sold good in Nintendo ( and Microsoft) consoles, Hideo Baba said a few months ago that the Tales Of fan base “IS ONLY ON PS3 and Vita” (WUT? yeah, i don’t get him too, maybe he is just retarted), so they sticking to those systems from now. They finally admitted that they don’t give a single fuck about fans in other systems.

      See? I can’t see how NAMCO could include a Tales Of representative there. They have been only licking Sony’s ass in the past years and don’t give a single fuck about Tales Of fans.

      • HerosLight

        > “…Don’t give a single fuck about Tales Of fans”

        By seeing your username “TalesOf(BS)” you probably wouldn’t care about what I I’m going to say and assume you’ve been seeing them negatively and not positively.

        Hideo Baba isn’t “retarded”, he does care about the fans. That’s why MOST of the fanbase is on the PS3/Vita, just like you said. Yes, that may be hard to accept if you don’t own those systems, but its for the good if they want to profit. If they had it for other systems, it wouldn’t sell as much as they do on other consoles/handhelds.

        You’re probably the only person I’ve seen that sees Hideo Baba as “retarded”. You should at least be glad that Hearts/Innocence/Graces got a upgrade and soon Symphonia (Still no confirmation if its true). I didn’t care much about Tales of the Tempest or the port of Abyss (As I already played Abyss on the PS2). And yes, everyone knows how bad Dawn of the New World ended up being.

        I bet you didn’t think Snake would join SSBB. Most of his games has been on Sony systems.

        Besides, I have a PS3 and I can enjoy their games. Even if it means I have to import them in case it doesn’t get a localization. If I didn’t have a PS3, I would still be grateful that they got an upgrade and hope I will play them someday in the future.

        This was an interview in August last year with Yoshizumi about including Tales Of characters in SSB4, read it:
        http://nintendoeverything.com/93862/yoshizumi-on-including-tales-characters-in-next-smash-bros-more/

        They said it will be difficult, but there is a small small chance.

        • TalesOfBS

          Sorry but no. That statement made him a complete retard. He completely ignored millions of fans who bought their games in other systems. The PS3/Vita fan base is shit against that.
