It's nice to see Nintendo doing so well again though it sucks that they're doing the minimum and barely addressing the issues they've had for years with the new system so I doubt they'll learn anything from the Wii U failure.

Any predictions for E3? I'm expecting a rather boring Nintendo conference, it'll be cool but no earth shattering announcements, basically the best scenario I can hope for is that all the rumors for the Switch announcement will finally be announced and shown they were real. But there's no way they'll be announcing big stuff when they have Mario Odyssey and they don't want to take the spotlight out of their big holiday title.

The surprises will include Rabbids + Mario, and other smaller stuff that we don't know about, what we can hope for is maybe the rumored Smash Switch port and Pokemon Stars. I'm guessing there'll be a big title for the 3DS line for the holidays and of course Animal Crossing mobile,

Sadly we won't get much news about the online, VC, apps and other issues that people have with the switch. They've never really used E3 for those in recent years, they'll leave those for a direct down the line.

I feel like there's got to be a Metroid announcement. With no Wii U game, my hope is that they held it back when they realize they couldn't save the console. I'm not even a Metroid fan, I'm just tired of hearing people talk about it. I have to think there's at least one big game they've saved for E3.

Same thing for Animal Crossing, except I want that.

Everyone talks about Pokémon Stars, but I just can't imagine The Pokémon Company not putting that game on 3DS. Too much money.

Every year I hope for some kind of Earthbound related reveal at E3, but there's never anything.
I'll still keep on hoping though.

Atleast we will always have Ness in Smash. I especially love the music on the Earthbound stages in Melee.

Yeah, his and Lucas' inclusions are great. Starman and Jeff as assist trophies is really cool too. That Mother music remix is amazing too. But would it kill them to make Ninten a playable character?

That would be entirely unnecessary

I know there are so many similarities between Ninten and Ness, but the original Mother doesn't get much representation.

If not Ninten, Giegue would be epic.

some of MyNintendo gold coins are expiring this month and i don't know what to spend them on, I have 90 total.

I can get all of the Pikmin 3 DLC, I never played Pikmin 3 but I do own it and I wonder if it's worth it, if I do that I would spend 80 coins but there is a really cute 3DS theme for Yoshi and it's 20 coins so I would be 10 coins off if I get the Pikmin DLC..


I knew it wasn't going to happen but I still hopelessly wished that we would get some type of announcement at E3 regarding the VC and maybe a MyNintendo overhaul, but I guess the best we can hope for is an update in the fall but more likely not until next year..

I'm honestly relieved there isn't a Smash 4 Switch port. We already have a lot of great titles coming out. Don't need Smash stealing their thunder.

The only reason I'd want a Smash port instead of a sequel is in case we didn't get Pac-Man and Mega Man together again... Other than that I would prefer a sequel even if it takes another 5 years. I guess Nintendo understands Smash is their biggest game and if they release a port they would blow their big franchise in a game that wouldn't sell as well.


I do wish we would get more Wii U ports, as long as Wii U owners had some sort of discount, I still think it's BS what they did with MK8 deluxe, barely any new features, same game, no discount for previous owners, full price.

Good thing about Smash not shown at E3 is it's now less likely just to get a quick port like Mario Kart 8 did and now far more likely to be a sequel with a lot more characters.

What they should do is still port the base Wii-U game to Switch, then just add like 10 new characters and new stages. There's no reason to start from scratch all over again and have to throw everything away now that it's in HD. That way there will no longer be any cuts in the character roster and all the old levels can return.

Really, Mario Kart is Nintendo's best seller. Then New Super Mario Bros.

I would like to think that Smash is being ported over, but I don't know why they would take so long to announce it. I suppose they could've been afraid of it stepping on ARMS. Or they're taking their time so they can add things. The roster is so big that I don't care about adding to it. But it would be nice if they put all the modes in one game.

If they're making a new game, it'll take forever. Can they even get Sakurai to do another one?

The series can survive without Sakurai. All he does is whine about how overworked he is all the time, even though he refuses to delegate.

That and the fact that the Switch not only has enough fighters (Street Fighter, Arms, Pokken) but enough good games going for it this year. Super Mario Odyssey and Mario+Rabbids look amazing! While it may be too soon for a Smash Bros 5, a port of Smash 4 just doesn't sound all that appealing anymore.

I really liked the idea those fake leaks had with combining the Wii U version of Smash with the 3DS version. Remastering all the 3DS content to match the console version and maybe add a few new characters like the Inklings, ARMS Fighters, and even Captain Toad, and I'd say it'd be a worthwhile port.

I'd still prefer a brand new version, however, if they don't have any plans for a Smash game anytime soon, why not just give it the "Deluxe" treatment and give some new life to it? Especially since they still have amiibos being released for the game.

So, all the launch problems of the Switch seem to be isolated incidents right? The few cases made the blog rounds and people thought it was a large problem but ever since then you don't really hear about it which means it was never that common to begin with right? The joycon sync/screen scracting / switch bending/ etc

I've bought many things on launch and only had slightly bad experiences with my Wii and Wii U. My Wii stopped reading doubled layer discs and would crash from time to time. My Wii U crashes even more often than my WIi but besides that things have been fine, maybe a stuck pixel in my DS but got that taken care of.

I almost bought a Switch a few days ago because I found it a little over retail price but I stopped myself. What can I say, I love Nintendo even if they haven't released anything I need to get and are still lacking all the basic features I've complained about before.

ARMS just came out. It's fun as hell. And Nintendo will be updating it with free DLC fighters and stages for it's entire run.

What other fighter out there gives you free DLC characters? Not even Smash Bros. did that.

I just bought ARMS yesterday and yes it is super fun.

I really believe the Switch is a worthwhile and unique console. I own a PS4 but I often don't use it that much. Could be because I'm burnt out on consoles trying to come close to becoming PC or multimedia machines.
