  • Kieran Sedgwick

    Zelda? Would make a /lot/ of sense.

  • BIG Franky

    It’ll be something SMASH…. new character reveal, perhaps….

    • jjbredesen

      I think we need to think even BIGGER :D

      The new Zelda is ready people :D it was to be shown at New york, but was delayed because of A link between worlds so now is the perfect time to show it, so the hard core zelda fans will buy a Wii U.

      • Tim van Broekhoven

        Oh yes! That makes sense :D It’d be so awesome… WII ♥ U NINTENDO!!!

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

    Nintendo could steal the Video Game world with an epic showing of Zelda U. If done right of course.

    • Zuxs13

      It should have Robin Williams and Kevin Butler playing Zelda U!

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

        And Robin Williams Daughter named Zelda after the game since he is a huge fan of the series. He did a commercial for Nintendo a while back

        • Zuxs13

          Exactly thats why he would be perfect for it, that and he is freaking funny.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      They could. I hope they are going all in on this one too.

  • Iván Enrique Garcerant Tafur

    Obviously Zelda. It is the only core franchise not yet announced.

    • Jeffrey Debris

      Metroid? :)

      • Suraj Alexander

        too early for metriod. have to wait 2 or 3 more years. development only started this year. I really hope it is an M rated zelda. Nintendo need to appeal to the older generations as well.
        Edit: I agree M might be too much. but what I meant was a Twilight sort of gameplay. Just a grim hyrule due to ganon summoning magical creatures that had overrun hyrule and zelda and link set out together with their friends to restore hyrule to its original glory. I mean its time nintendo catered a bit more to the older people.

        • HungryMetroid

          I highly doubt Nintendo would make an M rated game of any of their established franchises. A well deserved T rated Zelda would be much appreciated though.

          • Nicholas Warren

            twilight princess was teen

        • au8277

          M rated? Sorry, it’ll never happen.

        • Squid

          If you want a game to be mature it might as well be Metroid, the gore fits in.

          • Michael Hancock

            Still, I’ve heard no good reason why it should not be M rated. Metroid is totally different. How would making Zelda M rated make it Metroid-like? Gore also happens to fit into a medieval theme like Zelda.

          • Vile-Okami

            Yeah, because fuck kids. They don’t deserve to play our Zelda games.

          • asdfg

            In all honesty, I’d rather have a more serious Zelda that may alienate some younger players than have a happy-go-lucky game just so that everyone can play it. The majority of hardcore Zelda gamers are already 17 and up, and the franchise is already full of more childish games. I think that just for once, Nintendo should cater more to their older fans. The kids have Mario and whatnot. Not saying they should make it M rated, though. Gore doesn’t go along well with Zelda.

          • Michael Hancock

            I assume that was sarcasm. Kids play M rated games, all day every day.

          • gabe maldonado

            I havent heard a reason why it should be rated M. I dont see how gore and dismemberment improve anything. Zeldas are and have been amazing without it, why now should they add it? I can see if you want to speed up the action and add a combo /parry system to it that way combat has more depth, but gore and all that other stuff, no thank you.

          • Squid

            I don’t know if it would work. Zelda is supposed to be a game with Puzzles but also happens to have some action. But having it Metroid like would change it too much…

        • Andrew Gonzalez

          Hard to say if Zelda will become M rated. Nintendo is so keen on keeping the franchise as it is. It seems people want it to become like god of war. Dismemberment and gore don’t necessarily make a good game. I do agree is needs to be brought up a bit but not up to the point of it becoming soulless.

          • Michael Hancock

            “Dismemberment and gore don’t necessarily make a good game?”-No but it doesn’t take anything away from the experience either and can only improve it. As far as being soulless, well-there are no such things as souls.

        • asdfg

          I’m all in for a more dark and complex Zelda game, but M rated? That would ruin it.

          • Michael Hancock

            You prefer pastel colors and enemies that bounce off of your sword?

          • asdfg

            What part of “I’m all in for a more dark and complex Zelda game” you didn’t understand? Sexual themes and gore(which make a game “M” rated) have NEVER belonged on Zelda. That would be stupid. I’m not really a fan of pastel colors and enemies that bounce off my shield, but I also don’t want blood flying everywhere when Link kills an enemy.

          • Michael Hancock

            I don’t care about sexual themes. I am talking realistic gore. How is this “stupid”? Please, tell me. When I thrust my sword into an enemy I want it to stick inside of his body-instead of it bouncing off. So yeah, flying limbs, blood-all that-and more of it. Please tell me, how this would “ruin” it…without saying “Zelda has never been about that.”

          • asdfg

            A lot of people (myself included) feel uncomfortable with excessive gore and dismemberment. I don’t mind a violent game once in a while, but sometimes I just want to enjoy a game without blood dripping from my screen. Zelda isn’t meant to be violent. It should be more mature? Yes. People should die and suffer and whatever. I never felt like Hyrule was really in danger and that would be nice. But in a graphic way? God no. Extreme violence would feel forced and out of place in a game like Zelda.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Zelda is made for many ages. Blood and gore would eliminate the younger audience.

          • Michael Hancock

            I don’t know if it would. I mean, how young are we talking? Anyways, Nintendo would NEVER incorporate blood and gore into a Zelda game-so why can’t we dream?

        • Dez

          Zelda has no reason to be M rated. Besides, M rated games these days are the most immature things around, thank bad parenting for that bit as all the little kids play CoD, GTA, and just about anything where they can see some nudity/extreme violence. What I like about Zelda is that it doesn’t need those sad tropes, it establishes its own unique and memorable feel without being watered down like that.

          Besides, there already was a more mature Zelda, it was Twilight Princess. It was very dark compared to any other Zelda game and the most realistic one of all and personally it is one of my favorite Zelda games and it accomplishes all of this without blood and gore or any of the other tired tropes. Also, considering Zelda is started to get its formula tweaked first with A Link Between Worlds, then the upcoming Zelda is said to be widely different, and of course, Skyward Sword was the first step in that experimentation.

          • Jacob D. Taylor

            Amen! Why would blood, naked women and other horrendous violence make Zelda a better game? That is absolutely pathetic.

          • Suraj Alexander

            I don’t mean blood or naked women. I meant a bit more grim atmosphere like in twilight

          • Jacob D. Taylor

            But those things don’t make an ‘M’ rated game or mature. I agree with an “actual definition of mature” game in terms of emotional capability to understand and process with deep theme and response instead of just “Link YOU must save the PRINCESS!” as is most, that is agreeable but if we simply say M rated game then that’s not enough. Looking at your edit, yes I agree as it puts it all in context.

          • Michael Hancock

            B-Women! How could more realistic violence not improve the formula?

          • Jacob D. Taylor

            Well games by today’s standards with 3-10x the actual amount of blood in the human body spewing out in unnatural fashion I wouldn’t call realistic violence. I would like something better than just POOF and disappearing but would the world just magically think Zelda is better because blood comes out? I mean if we go get Windwaker and make some red pixels fly out of enemies will that really make critic scores go up? Absolutely not. Not even close, it may even detract from the charm that is Zelda. More importantly though, blood is just not a formula improver/game changer.

          • Suraj Alexander

            Twilight princes is what i basically had in mind. Just a grim hyrule due to ganon summoning magical creatures that had overrun hyrule and zelda and link set out together with their friends to restore hyrule to its original glory.

          • Sean Michael Davis

            *cough cough* Majoras Mask *Cough Cough*

        • DragonSilths

          M rated Zelda? GET YOUR FUCKING ASS OUT NOW AND NEVER RETURN. Your one of those idiots who wants a blood Zelda with blood dripping off Link’s sword, with HYPER REAL GRAPHICS and cutting limbs off and Link talking and swearing and such.
          Zelda SHOULD NEVER go rated M.

          • LeonFromAustralia

            Stfu Dragon. Everyone can have an opinion on what they want.

            He never said anything about gore you twat.

          • DragonSilths

            Oh this deserves a Youtube video. Further proof that EVERY Australian I come across is a total asshole lol. Seems like the last nice Australian was Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter.

          • Suraj Alexander

            I am sorry I did not make my self clear I edited my comment, but how about you learn how to have a civilised discussion.

          • DragonSilths

            Human beings having a civilized discussion? What dream world are you in? Humans are incapable of ever truly understanding one another.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Why not say that you are sorry for behaving that way instead of playing philosopher?

          • DragonSilths

            I would apologize if I was sorry for what I had said. But that is not the case. As I have stated a bunch of times. I can be a real fucking asshole. I like being one. Hell my friends are fine with me being one sometimes. However when it comes to Zelda, my favorite franchise, Mr. Troll (Yes I recognize you name you are a well known Nintendo hater and troll on this site.) anyway when it comes to Zelda I get defensive VERY EASILY.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            I could have respected what you said if it wasnt for your labelling at the end. That proves not that you are an asshole, but that you are a person unable to accept other peoples opinions. You are more of a whining kid than an asshole actually. A whining kid who gets mad as soon you dont get it the way you want. :)

          • DragonSilths

            I can accept others opinions. I just want nothing to do with them if they have such opinions.

          • asdfg

            Is all this rudeness really necessary?

          • Michael Hancock

            You have strong opinions-and even call someone an idiot. You do all of this without making 1 single point. You say you don’t want blood. Who gives a fuck? Explain why you don’t. You say Zelda should never be M rated and yet you fail to say why. You sir, are the idiot.

          • DragonSilths

            Oh yeah, big time. A lot of the times I can be a real idiot, a real mother fucking asshole. But I really don’t give a shit. When it comes to Zelda I know my shit. No reasons needed. To add blood and gore and rated M to Zelda makes it no longer Zelda, it makes it Skyrim. Which unlike most people. I thought was a hot steamy pile of shit.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            So unnecessary. Why do you call this guy those things just because he have a different opinion from yours?

        • Mohammad Badir

          yeah, Metroid Other M was sooo great, right?

        • jjbredesen

          Nah i agree with you, but i think Aounoma said that they wanted to reach out to a larger audince and that the game would be closer to skyward sword in terms of art. But at the same time something we have never seen before.

    • Zuxs13

      It’s been “announced” it just hasn’t been revealed!

      • Pikachief

        Has it been formally announced? I thought it was just assumed by all.

        • Zuxs13

          They announced it (a wii u title) during the Feb 2013 Nintendo Direct. They didn’t give it a title or show it but they said the game was officially in the works. Not to mention all the talk about it through out the year.

          • DragonSilths

            Well that E3 2011 Tech Demo basically showed that they were working on a Wii U Zelda game lol. They said this is what it could look like on Wii U. When Nintendo has a new system come out. They ALWAYS start work on certain games before the system is even out lol. Zelda and Mario is always in the situation.

      • Suraj Alexander

        Actually retrod studios said they had started planning for metriod as soon as the donkey kong game was annonced

        • DragonSilths

          Well they said they had ideas for both Donkey Kong and Metroid back when they got to chose what game they wanted to do.

          • Suraj Alexander

            oh kl i didn’t know that.

      • person

        I’m sure we’ll get at least one Metroid game for the Wii U at some point. I think this announcement will be about either Metroid, Zelda, or Star Fox…or it might be a Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze Trailer. With Nintendo, you honestly never know.

        • DragonSilths

          If its Starfox I will be so fired up I will need to go lay out in the snow to cool off. STARFOX FANBOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

    • Jack5221

      Mmm… Metroid?

    • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

      Perhaps… but i can’t say anything sorry.

      • Michael Rowlands

        if this is you then how do I get my money back for this shit Nintendo call a console

        • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

          If you don’t enjoy the Wii U, then please stay tuned for upcoming games that i am sure you will enjoy.

          Please tell us why you dont like the system, by contacting us here:

            how I hate Nintendo games…..I got my son a wii u for zomieu

          • DragonSilths

            ZombiU. Man I don’t know why even though I hated ZombiU I JUST CANT STAND PEOPLE SPELLING IT WRONG!!! lol.

          • Michael Rowlands

            I just want my money back

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Its him. Get him!

          • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

            Ja eg er Reggie ;)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Hehe, godt. Nynorsk til og med :)

          • jjbredesen

            Reggie er naboen min ;) hint hint

          • flovv

            hehe, lite fyndigt där ;)

    • Javy G

      Shigeru Miyamoto also confirmed he is working on a new IP, so maybe we’ll see something from that.

      • DragonSilths

        Damn it, I keep forgetting about Miyamoto’s new IP lol.

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      I agree that it will be Zelda or Metriod but I am not sure what. Truth is I except to not back down to Sony or Microsoft not while the 3ds is on top. Expect something mind blowing on spike awards at December 7. The reason is I believe Nintendo will do better next year is because Nintendo ha amazing franchise such as star fox or f zero for that. I am hoping that X comes soon enough because so far no next generation JRPG will come out on Ps4 or XBox One soon.

      • Michael Rowlands

        you are dreaming Nintendo will drop the wii u in 2yrs…all I can say is dream on

        • DragonSilths

          No that’s you. You will drop your Wii U in 2 years and it will break and you’ll be sad and have to cry about it on here.

        • Yousif Alromaithi

          Go dream you pathetic troll. I am done with you.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Urban Champion?

      • Iván Enrique Garcerant Tafur

        I will love it if the news is about Urban Champion :-) It’s the only 100% politically incorrect game of Nintendo. Beside I remember playing it in my NES a few decades back.

    • PS4/WiiU

      It can’t be zelda because they said they would be talking about it on e3 2013

      • DragonSilths

        Last E3??? lol

        • PS4/WiiU

          I meant e3 2013, my bad

          • DragonSilths

            Again you said 2013 lol.

          • PS4/WiiU

            AAAHHHH!!!! DAMN IT
            2014!!!

          • DragonSilths

            lol that’s better.

          • PS4/WiiU

            :)

    • The Clockwork Being

      Mother 4? :)

      • DragonSilths

        Never gonna happen.

        • The Clockwork Being

          Can’t a man dream!!

    • Zach Cruz

      Zelda, Metroid, F-Zero, A new Kirby? Yoshis Yarn? Theres so many things it can be, maybe even a classic none of us would be expecting. or Maybe from the success of Fire Emblem on the 3ds in the US they’ll have a console reveal of something… or that Pokemon wii u game that was teased for like 3 seconds.

    • kevin nun—-

      The Wii u price was messed up at 19:49! NOOOooo! The 50 dollars might make a difference. Crap.

    • DragonSilths

      Metroid, Starfox, F-Zero….

    • Starfoxguy

      Zelda was already announced but nothing was shown.

    • ICHI

      So when are metroid and f-zero out as i missed their announcements? Oh and zelda is known to be in production, and announced it would be shown at E3

  • BIG Franky

    omigosh… or maybe something Zelda U? (wishful thinking, probably)…

    • Sdudyoy

      I wish, but the problem with it being Zelda is that they just released Zelda a link between worlds, and Zelda U might still the spotlight from it.

  • Seth S. Scott

    I bet it will be either Smash or Mario Kart. Those are the next big things that are coming out for Nintendo and right now they have the two highest rated games across the board to come out this week, including PS4 and XBone. They are gonna keep this hype-train going and it seems Holiday 2013 and all year in 2014 might be the time when all the naysayers of Wii U will be proven wrong.

  • mrjoedawgbrother

    They flashed the wrong prices at the end of the video. (Note: I have to go wash my hands now. I felt like a typical internet troll. I apologize.)

  • Super Buu

    If it’s any of the following, Zelda, Metroid, Star Fox, F-Zero then I am freaking excited. And yes, the HAVE to be Wii U games, 3DS is doing well already.

  • Nintedward

    FZero UX mofo’s!!!!!!!

    What? Can’t a man dream anymore ? :P

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Unless you work for EA, then dreams come to die. :P

      • Kevin Malone

        Dreams make it to EA?!

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Well, the nightmares anyway. :)

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Would love that too. At the same time it would suck bigtime after Shin’ens F-Zero inspired game. I kind of want Shin’en to get the fruits for this after listening to the fans. A new F-Zero might overshadow their product. And that would be sad.

    • The Clockwork Being

      F-Zero naww man, obviously Mother 4!

  • Christopher Acuna

    EXCITEMENT!

  • uPadWatcher

    “Play… the… game!”

  • Zuxs13

    This would be an awesome opportunity for Nintendo to reveal a new Sizzle real of games or something like Zelda. i just hope they ‘Know’ their audience at this show. Its not little kids that watch it their reveal needs to be appropriate for the crowd to appeal to them and create enough buzz to get people interested back into Nintendo.

    They should use Kevin Butler and Robin Williams to make the announcement with Reggie!!

  • wober2

    wii music u !!!!! OMG!!!!

  • InterTreble

    Some details about Miyamoto’s new IP… Or something abut the new firmware in December… I don’t think we will be listening to any new Zelda news until next E3 (or a dedicated Direct which is more important in Nintendo’s view)…

  • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

    GTA V: Wii U Edition? Okay I know that is wishful thinking… maybe a new Metroid perhaps?

  • Pikachief

    Wind Waker HD releases -> Flood of A Link Between Worlds info and trailers
    A Link Between World releases -> ZELDA U TRAILER???

    They’ve only been saying they wanted to show something Zelda U but didn’t like after every event since E3 lol

    • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

      ;)

  • Shota

    he said maybe we will be do something special. its nothing about an announcement of a game.

  • Xavier Lopez Chabelo

    Well… I may not happen, but it would be nice and excellent if they reveal a teaser of Zelda U…. or Metroid… or Starfox?

    • Suraj Alexander

      Metroid will only release in 2 or 3 more years. too early in the stage

      • Xavier Lopez Chabelo

        I know but maybe a teaser trailer of 40 seconds is much to ask? At least to know that they already started the game development? Sony, Microsoft and many other companies do that, so why Nintendo dont… just a little teaser of something like Metroid, with no gameplay, just a trailer to know that it exist would bring an anormous Hype

  • Fuzunga

    I don’t even care what it is. It’s Nintendo, so you know it’ll be awesome!

  • jjbredesen

    In other words we get to see Zelda or Miyamoto’s new IP :D

    • mar laguna

      exactly the new ip is my decision

    • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

      I can’t say anything, but your body will be ready ;)

  • mar laguna

    We have to expect the worst because if we do that and it gives us a suprise we will be happy but if we expect something big and it dosent come we will be sad and angry

  • Simon Stevens

    I hope it’s a jrpg >.<' please let it be a jrpg

    • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

      The game will be japanese, but i can’t tell you what genre sorry.

      • Simon Stevens

        Japanese is ALWAYS better than American ^^

        • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

          If that is what you think, you will enjoy our new game.

          Your body, will be ready ;)

          sincerely Reggie

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I know a lot of American made games that beat out Japanese games. You must not play many. :P

          • Simon Stevens

            I haven’t seen them on a Nintendo console……

    • Zuxs13

      They already revealed one, X. But it would be neat to see more of them, like “Last Story 2″ or something.

      • Simon Stevens

        I would be so happy to see Mistwalker make a return ^^

  • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

    Looking forward to Desember 7. what are you guys most excited for?

    My body is ready ;)

  • Jack5221

    December 7? Thats also the day of the MLS cup finals! What an exciting day for me. (Lol yeah Im a soccer fan too)

    • SomeFluffer64

      And a day that will live in infamy…

  • LevenThumps

    I can’t wait. I’m hoping for a trailer of Zelda U myself, especially since A Link Between Worlds is out now.

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    WOW reggie seems preatty confident, i really like it, it gets me really excited when wii u is gonna beat those other platforms, wich are also great, but nothing beats nintendo!

    • Zuxs13

      It’s his job to be confident, he is there to Sell his company and make his investors confident in the company. The reality though is he is nervous as hell and rightfully so, they will soon be outsold by the PS4 with in its first quarter of sales and that is terrible for Nintendo.

      • Alexander Kleinwechter

        Neahh, maybe in the first months, but the zelda is gonna kick everyones ass!

        • Zuxs13

          Love your confidence but unfortunately that will not happen, there is nothing showing that it will. They would have to come out with some games that will greatly appeal to a huge audience like never before and also miraculously gather 3rd party support that is unheard of.

          • Alexander Kleinwechter

            Well, thats your opinion, my prediction is that nintedo will be much popular upcoming months!

          • Zuxs13

            Yes its my opinion based on current sale projections, analyst predictions and historical data. Ill repeat there is currently NOTHING showing that the Wii U will “beat” out the other consoles. To be fair though it is still early for the PS4 to tell if its going to continue at its current selling pace.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Don’t be overconfident. PS4 has a good start and could continue to push out consoles. Zelda is awesome to Nintendo gamers, but one game doesn’t make a console. It’s going to be a bumpy ride for Nintendo this generation. It’s good to be optimistic about it, though. :P

          • ItzameyaToad

            “one game doesn’t make a console” Halo 3 was the one game that truely helped the 360 sell alot and while yes one game doesn’t define a console it does help the console sell alot. Metal Gear was PS3’s for awhile and Halo 3 was Xbox 360’s for awhile and the New Zelda will most likely be Nintendo’s gem that gets alot of people to buy a Wii U especially if the graphics/gameplay blow people away.

          • Zuxs13

            Zelda historically has not been a “system seller” the one that will “define” the wii U will most likely be Mario Kart.

          • ItzameyaToad

            I don’t know if I buy that. Zelda has been selling Wii U’s like crazy with the new bundle and in the past when the Wii launched alongside Twilight Princess that was one of the main reasons to get a Wii. Im not saying it will always be the Wii U’s system seller but alot of people buy Nintendo consoles for a great Zelda experience and I believe at least around the time it launches that it will be a system seller.

          • Zuxs13

            Actually it hasn’t been selling the Wii U like crazy. It gave it a modest bump. What is selling the WiiU right now is the price drop, multiple bundles, and release of many many games. It has only sold like 200k around the globe. Not bad for a low install base and a 10 year old game but hardly a system seller.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Actually Zelda might be the game that can do it. But they need to both do something new, and make something better than before. Also keep it 3D, open world and take full utility of what the Wii U can do. Not doing something stupid like 4 swords, cartoon cell shading, top perspective etc. They must do what N64, GCN and Wii couldnt do in terms of graphics. Make a good online part, and a more huge world than ever. Dont fool around to much, removing central themes as Hyrule, dungeons , Ganon etc.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Takes more than one game to help the Wii U out. Zelda can at the very least, give it a big boost in sales. I still stand by the Skyrim type of Zelda idea. It’s about time Nintendo does something they wouldn’t normally do. Doesn’t hurt to take a risk from time to time.

      • ItzameyaToad

        I really don’t see why he would be nervous really. I mean Nintendo has the best/most lineup of exclusive AAA games coming in the next few months as well as one of the highest rated games of the year on there console and Japan all to themselves until February and 95% of PS4’s and Xbox Ones hard hitting games aren’t coming until months from now… Fact is is Nintendo has a much more solid lineup of games coming to the console than either the PS4 or Xbox One at least when it comes to exclusive games that will pull people in to buy there console.

        • Zuxs13

          Why wouldn’t he be nervous. Nintendo has failed to meat its projections over and over. Their stock has tanked in the last 2-3 years and hasn’t recovered. They may have a lot of games coming or just launcher (today) but only thing any game is taking off on is the 3DS while the Wii U is still bleeding cash.

          • ItzameyaToad

            Lets flip the script real quick, if Sony was in Nintendo’s shoes, had alot of there hard hitting first party games coming out in the next few months before Nintendo or Microsofts big games where coming out lets say a new God of War, Infamous Second Son, Little Big Planet, Sly Cooper and Uncharted would you think they would need to be nervous regardless of the past years poor sales and the new consoles selling well? I sure as hell wouldn’t. Fact is is Nintendo has always turned shit around and just like the 3DS the Wii U is slowly starting to pick up sales and with a larger amount of first party big hitters coming to Wii U in the next few months I see sales picking up alot.

          • Zuxs13

            If the PS4 was selling as bad as the WiiU currently is and announced those games, yes they would be nervous. That would be the reason why they would be announcing so many “great” games at once, because they are nervous and need to turn the PS4 around.

          • ItzameyaToad

            Just because your console does bad and you release alot of games at once doesn’t mean you are nervous it means you are being competitive.

          • Zuxs13

            No it means they are nervous. Stop being so narrow minded.

          • ItzameyaToad

            Haha im not being narrow minded I am being real. If you are trying to compete you are going to bring in the big guns doesn’t mean your nervous.

          • Zuxs13

            They are trying to make up for how terrible they are doing, because they are nervous its not going to get better. When the Wii Was doing well then began to slow they did’t bring out the big guns over and over, because they had already made a ton and were not nervous, despite getting out sold over and over in the later years of the wii u.

  • GameBoy1979

    PUUUUUHHHHLLLEEEASSSSEEEEEE BE ZELDA U!!!!!!!

  • Suraj Alexander

    wait.. what was that title shown at 3:39?

    • Zuxs13

      Saw that too, not sure it might be “X” or something.

      • Suraj Alexander

        Nah, it can’t be. X doesn’t have that art style

    • Petri

      Not sure, but the kid looked like the one from Kingdom Hearts, 3DS game maybe?

    • The Clockwork Being

      It’s Bravely Default for Nintendo 3DS

      • Suraj Alexander

        oh nice. makes me wish i has a 3ds. i soo want to get the pokemon game as well. i have been waiting for ever for a 3d pokemon instead of the traditional 2d overhead versions.

  • Michael Rowlands

    reggie needs to get fired….the wii u is shit and that is not coming from a fanboy its coming from someone that has a wii u ……reggie is a fucking prick and I would love my money back for this fucking shit Nintendo call a game console

    • Zuxs13

      so despite your ignorant comment and fan rage, what exactly is so “terrible” about your Wii U?

      • Michael Rowlands

        where do I start having to buy another console to play third party games

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Why Reggie and not Iwata?

    • NkoSekirei

      we didnt realize u eat $hit oh wait thats wat trolls eat

  • dforce79

    I know I’m dreaming but a Star Fox announcement would be EPIC!!!

  • Satoru Iwata

    We will be showing Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix 2. Please stay tuned.

    • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

      Sir,you must wait for Desember the 7.

      Mario Mix is not ready to be shown yet, we will be showing projekt Z15U

    • Michael Rowlands

      your console is shit and I have one….how can I get my money back

      • Zuxs13

        you can sell it like anyone else who didn’t want to keep it.

        • Michael Rowlands

          sad….sad ….man

          • Zuxs13

            Well its not my fault you don’t understand what to do..

          • Michael Rowlands

            Again sad pathetic man

          • Zuxs13

            Yes I agree. You are.

      • NkoSekirei

        troll will be troll seriously ur talking to someone thats posing as iwata for the fun of it

    • Simon Stevens

      Now there both at it:D love it, love you Iwata

    • Bomberman

      Excuse Mr. Iwata,

      Hello it’s me Bomberman from Konami (formerly Hudson). I hate to talk like this announced but can you please purchase me from Konami. I’m just sitting here doing nothing. I have no news games being developed, Planet Bomber is boring me, I sent my application many times to Sakurai to be in the upcoming Smash Bros. and they have not yet to contact me.

      • DragonSilths

        Bomberman in Smash Bros!!! Make it happen lol. I want a Bomberman game on Wii U that’s like Bomberman Hero on the N64. LOVED THAT GAME.

        • Sean Michael Davis

          ^YES!

        • Bomberman

          Yes! Yes! My dream would be to get a sequel to 2nd Attack! I want to vs. Regulus again.

      • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

        Thank you for contacting us, we will get back to you before desember 7. ;)

  • Starfoxguy

    Starfox… anybody… no… okay :(

    • SomeFluffer64

      The remake of Starfox 64 probably shows that they’re gonna reboot Starfox. No more Krystal or Pigma leaving Starwolf bullcrap.

      • Starfoxguy

        I would leave Krystal in but keep all the relationship stuff out. She is only one of the 4 or 5 females in the game. I could care less with what they do to Pigma

  • Stephen Macneil

    Where in the video does he mention the reveal? I just watched it and apparently missed it… Anyways, it would be smart to reveal Zelda then because it’s hard to make a splash at E3 with anything. I hope it’s zelda…

  • Kevin Malone

    “He states that Nintendo plans on having a different pace of games for Wii U and 3DS filling out the catalogue all year” This is the most encouraging claim of the bunch, as I believe this is the big mistake all the console companies made. There was a slew of releases at launch then a really long waiting time for more notable releases, and enthusiasm has petered out. A steady release of games throughout the year over the next few years would help keep people thinking positively about the console instead of lamenting long wait times for news of anything notable and new.

  • Joseph Parsons

    im happy to see Nintendo come out for war

  • au8277

    My gut tells me it will be a shiny new trailer for Monolith’s “X”.

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    I’d love to see something like Final Fantasy on the Wii U, but I don’t think that will happen.

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    Or wait… A 3D platforming game with the Nintendo staff as playable characters! :O

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      Reggies body would be ready for that…

      • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

        My body is ready for anything! Just working on my smash mov…. I mean see you desember 7.

    • SomeFluffer64

      Naw, Reggie in Super Smash Bros!

      • Tim van Broekhoven

        That’d be great too! :D

        • SomeFluffer64

          His moveset would consist of him using wii peripherals.
          Neutral B- swing wii remote
          Side B- throw wii wheel like a ninja star
          Down B- swing nun chuck around him (like metaknight)
          Up B- Uses nun chuck to grab ledge (like Olimar and Pikmin
          Final Smash :MY BODY IS READY *uses Wii Balance board to flip entire level upside down so all enemy players will fall to their doom*

  • Ricky__Spanish

    Donkey Kong meh

  • mojack411

    Watch it be the freeware Steel Diver game announced a while back :/

  • Jamborlee

    I may be wrong. But isn’t the title that Reggie is talking about for the VGX awards Super Mario 3d World? I remember voting for that game on some site. lol

  • Jamborlee

    Good to know that Geoff toned down his douche-baggery in this interview vs his last one with the Regster <3

  • ACE

    Wii U! this is going to be my last console from Nintendo

    • Michael Rowlands

      me too………

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Its likely its Nintendos last console too. Seems like they are jumping to tablet and phone business.

      • Jelle Knibbe

        Yeah, right……………..

    • Xavier Lopez Chabelo

      Me too but the Big N will always release something thats going to force us to buy their consoles LOL

  • ACE

    Wii Music 2 HD

  • Andrew W Garttmeyer

    meh, he also said THIS year was going to be great. How about letting me play some of those SWEET 3DS games on my Wii U? C’moooon, I want ‘A Link Between Worlds’, and I am NOT buying a 3DS to play it.

  • Baconfat23

    I doubt it would be such a big announcement, maybe Metroid or Star Fox being announced but I reckon Nintendo will be revealing the forth character for DK Tropical Freeze via a new trailer.

    • majora :D

      You call Metroid a small anouncment? Sir, you have made a very weak enemy!

  • alex toschi

    I think you all are getting your hopes WAY to far up right now. Let’s be reasonable, Super Smash Bros. U doesn’t even have a release date as of yet, neither does Mario Kart 8 (Spring, I know but not an exact date). It’s probably going to be either of those two, maybe I’m wrong but it’s better to have realistic expectations. You all expect a lot from Nintendo, and frankly right now they aren’t racing to surpass those. They are meeting mine because I am happy to play the 3DS and Wii U games that I have, and am looking forward to. Stop assuming it’s Metroid, or Star Fox. Those games will come when they do, and they probably haven’t even started production on those two titles yet.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Nintendo expects to little of themselves.

      • alex toschi

        I don’t think that’s really quite fair. Unfortunately Nintendo doesn’t have a true company to compete with anymore. Gaming has changed a lot, but they still have given me hundreds of hours of entertainment this year.

  • GermGerm

    They will probably show a new trailer for Super Mario 3D World :)

  • Rman94

    Please, for the love of mario let it be that mysterious “X” game.

  • Spike Ashford

    Maybe a sequel to Pandora’s Tower or The Last Story? Maybe a new RPG all together?

  • DragonSilths

    Its going to be a typical Nintendo thing to do. Hype us up, then its just a new Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze trailer or Mario Kart 8 trailer…which actually wouldn’t be a bad thing.
    ZELDA WONT BE THERE. Best case for Zelda HD is a big surprise Nintendo Direct in January like this past January one. And that will just be a teaser trailer. No real info and such till E3. Don’t get me wrong. Zelda is my #1 favorite Nintendo franchise. Hell video game franchise. But I wont get hyped up and disappointed from Nintendo on this one lol.
    Honestly I think best case scenario is a Bayonetta 2 trailer with launch date revealed. Or a new X trailer…with a full name reveal and launch month revealed. Not launch date.

  • Rinslowe

    3DS; A billion dollar business in North America alone…
    Sweet mother of money!

  • Sarin Marino

    I’m hoping the new LOZ will just blow people away. LOZ SS was just a bore fest with motion controls.

  • SomeFluffer64

    Starfox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • SomeFluffer64

    Earthbound Zero and Mother 3 being localized? Gamecube and/or GBA on Virtual Console? 3DS player for Wii U? New Metroid, Starfox, F-Zero, or even Miyamoto’s new IP? Super Mario RPG for Wii U?

  • Legendarystatus Munchie

    wii u need more sports games …………..

  • Jeovany

    I really hope there plan is to go for the casual market

  • Jeovany

    Of course reggie would say these things he work for nintendo he’s talking out his ass

  • Nintengoth

    Lets see something good! that new IP, or Zelda or (please) new Metroid lol

  • ICHI

    I’m quite happy not to hope for too much. so far this year whenever I have gotten my hopes up I have taken it way too far from what actually gets shown.

  • Wiiluigi

    Metroid U!!!!!!!!

  • Nigga

    Just know that it ISN’T going to be Zelda related. Expect a new version of the Wii U, a new Mario game, something from Nintendo’s Forgotten IPs, or Miyamoto’s new IP. Nintendo does not specialize in Zelda anymore despite ALBW being a fantastic game.

    But, if it is indeed ZeldaU, feel free to shoot me in the foot. ^^

  • Aaron

    I hope it’s the announcement that Megaman Legends 3 is back and will be on the 3ds and Wii U. But a trailer for the new Zelda would also be awesome.

  • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

    Don’t worry,I can confirm that there will be something there, but i can’t tell you what.

  • Fred

    March? Can you explain why March?

  • Fred

    Wow, you really think they’re going to kill in after March? I sincerely hope you’re wrong. I love my Wii U and I’d hate to have them quit developing games for it, but I can’t tell you it won’t happen. However, I don’t think it will. I think they’ll keep at it.

  • Michael Rowlands

    can i ask what is Nintendo doing about getting third party support

  • Michael Rowlands

    so is ea coming back to the wii u

  • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

    I can sadly not tell you what EA is planning, that is up to them to announce.
