Live: Nintendo Direct E3 Conference Finished

Happy Nintendo day! Now the shouting's done between Microsoft and Sony - with a little chorus on either side supplied by Ubisoft and EA - it's time to sink back and enjoy the relatively mellow charms of Nintendo's E3 slate. There's no conference this year, though the Nintendo Direct that's kicking off at 3pm BST this afternoon is pretty much a like for like replacement.

What will its stance on DRM and used games be? Oh wait, we already know that. As we do what it's likely to show, with a new 3D Mario and Mario Kart slated to make an appearance, as well as the first trailer for the new Smash Bros. game.

Beyond that, there's some hope that we'll see Bayonetta 2 in action, and a somewhat slimmer chance that Nintendo finally reveals what Retro Studios has been working on these past few years. Can we expect a Wii U price-cut as well, and are there any surprises in store for the Nintendo 3DS? The EG team will be taking you through the show from 3pm BST, so join us for reasoned commentary and a few overexcited yelps.

    William. although Sarah`s comment is super, last monday I got themselves a Bugatti Veyron after having made $6244 this-past/4 weeks and even more than $10k lass month. it's certainly the easiest job I have ever done. I started this three months/ago and practically straight away made myself more than $71... p/h. I follow the instructions here, Detail Here

    Rich. Colourful. Sexy. Fun.

    All presented by the most polite suit ever.

    The Japanese deserve to win this generation.

    Wish I didn't watch this, I might have to buy a Wii U now to tide me over until the PS4 comes out. argggg Damn you nintendo
  • iamnormal 2 years ago

    @memeroot - you have an Oculus Rift? That just seems unlikely.
  • iamnormal 2 years ago

    It just feels so much like the days of the dreamcast.
  • iamnormal 2 years ago

    Oh Nintendo. You poor old bean.
  • memeroot 2 years ago

    i have an occulus rift... as well as a wii u

    not realy living in the past

    I just think 350 is to much for a console.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    @memeroot

    You are living in the past. Get with the times or you will be forgotten. People buy iPads every year for £400-500 sight unseen. Similar passionate gamers will do the same for brand new consoles with decade lifespans. In the grand scheme of things £349-429 are not that bad.
  • memeroot 2 years ago

    ninty recognise that a console is a console and should be cheap

    150 quid!

    not 400 quid (or even 350)

    just give me the games

    reading through the comments....

    I'm clearly on the wrong website
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Don't make excuses for them. Big N made their own bed with Wii U. They could have afforded a stronger system that would attract more support, but saving a pretty penny was more important to them.

    Its pretty simple. Gaming is not a charity, its a business. If a company can't put their dukes up to attract customers, they need to reassess their business. This counts for MS as much as Nintendo.

    MS issues with Xbox will be their anvil weighing them down against Sony, so may change.
  • memeroot 2 years ago

    oh and bayonetta 2

    just take my money

    (and thanks for the frontal shot)
  • memeroot 2 years ago

    I want to play these games more than anything else Ive seen

    presentation was genius also :)
  • Pandy 2 years ago

    Also, at least Nintendo SHOWED SOME ACTUAL GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE!!! Which was nice.
  • Pandy 2 years ago

    Mario Kart 8 and X were the highlights for me. They looked like games that'll quite happily sit alongside the next-gen stuff on other consoles (read PS4). I look forward to seeing what the talented Miiverse people can do with those impressive looking drawing tools. Otherwise, a bit of a wash out. Don't forget though that Nintendo kept its best goodies for TGS last year, so we'll likely get more new announcements then.
  • hopelesswriter 2 years ago

    So disappointing - really regretting picking up the Wii U at launch...
  • electrolite 2 years ago

    Still a more likely purchase for me than the new XBox though, so it's not all bad!
  • MickleMackle 2 years ago

    man i have no idea why im seeing all these comments about boring yawn give us something new, i have never been so excited in my life! Pikmin ive been craving for years, same with pokemon and zelda, i love what their doing with donkey kong, Ive never understood this idea that Nintendo has to compete with Sony or Microsoft, nintendo games have always been a completely different experience than xbox/playstation, theyre not supposed to be the same as them! and i love all 3!
  • electrolite 2 years ago

    (runs in the door)

    "right, I've been in work all day, what did I miss?"

    (starts clicking)

    "I'm not going to early adopt with Sony or MS, so I'm really interested in a Wii U purchase if the games coming out this year are exciting"

    (looks confused)
    (clicks)

    "That can't be it? Where's the rest of it?"

  • Sid-Nice 2 years ago

    @Rodriguez
    I was thinking of holding off buying the PS4 until 2014 as there wasn't much in the launch line-up that tickled my fancy. This is "One hell of a drought Nintendo" I might start a campaign to save the Wii U; I?m busy composing the song as I type.

    It?s Christmas time
    There?s still no games for the Wii U
    At Christmas time
    When you?re twiddling you?re thumbs with fuck all to do
    And in our world of consoles we can spread a smile joy
    Develop some Wii U games this Christmas time
    But say a prayer pray for the other ones
    At Christmas time on the PS4 and Xbox One they will be having fun
    There?s a kid outside your window and it?s a kid that got a Wii U
    Where they only new game for his console came out in 2002
    And the only bells ringing with this game will be messages from Tingle
    Well tonight thank God it?s them instead of you
    And there won?t be games on the Wii U this Christmas time
    The greatest game they?ll get this year is Mario oh, oh, oh
    Where nothing will ever change same old IP?s same old games
    Do they know the Wii U exist at all?
    Here?s to you create a game for the Wii U
    Here?s to gamer?s with fuck all to do
    Do they know that Wii U exits at all?
    Chorus: Feed the Wii U let them know that it plays games
  • trebellk 2 years ago

    very very boring but still beats ms by virtue of not screwing consumers rights.
  • chriscourtois 2 years ago

    Mario, more Mario and an old Zelda game. Sigh... where's your courage gone, Nintendo?!
  • Resurrected-X460 2 years ago

    Even though I'm defo getting a ps4, but I wish the best for nintendo! A really great company, and if it wasn't for them we wouldn't have been here in gaming. they've transformed gaming into a culture. The only thing about them that I don't like is their policy with limiting demos and their super decisions as of late.
  • orle 2 years ago

    I thought it was great and I thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm also very excited now.
  • feeg86 2 years ago

    Christ, it's like living the same year over and over with Nintendo.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Star Fox V, 1080 Snowsports, a new Waverace. a new F Zero, new Pilotwings or Stunt Race 2 and some new brand spanking original games.

    It seems Wonderful 101 is as original as we get. That's sad.

    @laughs at fightma5b2

    Really, you'd rather have system on dying legs that a new one to last another decade. Okay, next!
  • frazzl 2 years ago

    Rayman Legends is multi-platform and I have never liked the Pikmin games. It's been less than a year since Mario was released when the Wii U launched and we don't need another one so soon. Sonic does look nice though and I will be picking it up. But in my opinion there's far too little out there for the Wii U especially in terms of exclusives. Why would I buy a multi-platform on the Wii U when I can get it for my 360 and play it with my controller of choice?
  • fightman5b2 2 years ago

    Wii U may well be shite, but id still have one over Xbone any day of the week.
  • seeyoshirun 2 years ago

    @frazzl Oh. Yay. It's you again. I'm assuming you don't like playing video games with people. I'm getting Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, Mario, DK, 101 and Sonic before the end of the year, plus a number of interesting-looking indie games, by the look of things. Nearly all of them support what looks to be some really awesome local multi, which is one of the most important things to me by far.
  • SBandy 2 years ago

    I really, really wanted Starfox. Just hope Nintendo have a surprise or two in store.
  • deported 2 years ago

    youtube watch?v=nLgiSuosdNU
  • frazzl 2 years ago

    @seeyoshirun What exactly should we be happy about. Nintendo have only announced 3 (or 4) titles to be released this year in this presentation: a remake of a 10 year old game, another Mario (there've been too many released in the last few years), another DK Country title and Wonderful 101. Couple that with lack luster third party support and it's no wonder people are dsappointed.
  • telboy007 2 years ago

    Not enough FPSes
  • Mr-Writer 2 years ago

    WiiU

    *cringe
  • seeyoshirun 2 years ago

    Am I the only person on EG who was actually happy with that? Maybe I'm the only one who likes playing video games with other people. In the same room.

    The one thing I wasn't thrilled with was Wind Waker HD, although if they *do* include the lost dungeons that would completely change my mind.

    But seriously, what exactly did you people want from them? They had a few curveballs in with the titles they know will sell systems - people have been calling for Mario/Smash/etc. for ages.
  • Rhaegyr 2 years ago

    DamDai and Cobalt - who are you trying to convince here?
  • Cobalt_Jackal 2 years ago

    Same old shit year after year....Its the Nintendo way.
  • TheEarlOfZinger 2 years ago

    Mario/mariokart/zelda/smash bros/Donkey Kong

    It's the same old shit year after year.
  • Mikeeeboy1 2 years ago

    At least kiss me before you fuck me Nintendo!
    How utterly underwhelming and poor that was.
    Now I'm stuck with a paper weight for another six months until you release some more games.
    Nevermind bowing to me for my patience you should be down on your knees blowing me for your monumental fuck up that is Wii U!?!?
  • frazzl 2 years ago

    It worked for them last time and they foolishly thought it would work again. Once bitten, twice shy ;)
  • Kami 2 years ago

    Whole thing was lazy and sloppy really, very unlike Nintendo. Perhaps this Direct thing isn't a good idea, because if it encourages this level of sedate information drip-feeding, then it's only going to frustrate more than it appeases...
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Its true what some say which is that much of the true original games we used to get from Nintendo, now come from indie devs. They are brave enough to try new things and gamble on them, when not rich in money. Shocking to see Nintendo don't seem to care anymore. Pretty soon they might well be like Sega, pushing out Sonic on his wheelchair every now and then to sell (Sonic Lost World does look good mind, a shame it and Bayonetta are only on Wii U though.
  • Pacman8MyGhostkart 2 years ago

    Skip to 38:45
  • Pacman8MyGhostkart 2 years ago

    If you go to the link below of Nintendo's stream it has a brief booth walkthrough at the end.

    You can see the full title of the sequel to A Link to the Past; it is called "The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds".

    Also the new Yoshi's Island is called "Yoshi's New Island".

  • albo 2 years ago

    As a wii u owner that was underwhelming... especially given what we saw at yesterday's conferences
  • Cobalt_Jackal 2 years ago

    @DamDai they exist by playing on the nostalgia of old timers/man children and appealing to little kids.
  • Mister-Wario 2 years ago

    @Keresky I don't even think that it's the hardware: look at what they accomplished with Super Mario Galaxy. It just seems to be a mindset that the game designs of the 80s are the only ones worth preserving. Why is it so important that we get have a return to SMB 2? Why is it so important to have more linear Mario games?
  • Rhaegyr 2 years ago

    wow, a lot of hate on Nintendo here, some need to simmer down
  • peasoup 2 years ago

    Nintendo seem so apprehensive now days, unwilling to move away from key franchises. In this world of identikit fps we need Nintendo to be bold....makes me sad
  • Keresky 2 years ago

    @kinky_mong No need for valium. This stream was sleep-inducing enough already.
  • Keresky 2 years ago

    @simsini I'd rather have wall-to-wall grey textures than yet another goddamned Mario Kart. But given the half-assed hardware they have to work with, I guess you can't blame Nintendo for just re-heating the same old crap.

  • neoturfmaster 2 years ago

    Maybe I'll just dig out my SNES for xmas this year. No DRM! Healthy second hand market! Actual games available for purchase in 2013! *sigh*
  • simsini 2 years ago

    All games seem to be competing to be darker (in colour as well as gameplay) than they were before. Nintendo are the only ones being different, by being the same.

    New trailer and name for zelda 3DS EG, cant beleive thsi wasn't in the direct : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q

  • simsini 2 years ago

    I found it exicting to see some games being made that don't just feature various levels of grey textures.
  • Mister-Wario 2 years ago

    @simsini That's alright :)
  • frazzl 2 years ago

    @Damdai I am not disagreeing with you. I am disappointed as well. The 2 titles that interest me the most (Bayonetta 2 and the Monolith RPG) are due next year and have been shown before. I haven't bought a game for my Wii U since getting Mario and Zombie U at launch. It looks like I'll be adding Wind Waker (which I have already finished on the GC) and another Mario this year. Which sucks to be honest.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    @Lince

    Sorry dude, that's no excuse. They sit on billions of yen. They could by studios and get a wider selection of games, but they are addicted to looking at their high bank balance.

    If they like money and hate risk, might be a time to leave home consoles alone.
  • pooKy1979 2 years ago

    This makes me so sad. It's like they've just given up. Where was Metroid, F-Zero ANYTHING!! C'mon guys. :-(
  • Cobalt_Jackal 2 years ago

    Sony do what NintenDON'T...
  • Irvyne 2 years ago

    (sigh)
    Wildly disappointed. My stream skipped, and when it returned and I was watching footage of the new Mario, I thought, "Oh, okay. A new 3DS game. We didn't need ANOTHER Mario game, but oh well, looks pretty cool."
    When I found out it was actually the WiiU Mario, I saw red.
    I'm sure it will be fun, as will the new Donkey Kong, but WHERE'S THE NEW STUFF?? Smash Bros. looks exactly the same. (albeit with Mega Man - an awesome addition)
  • simsini 2 years ago

    @Mister-Wario Apologies. I guess I should have aimed that at everyone. I can't see how any console is worth the money when none of them bring anything new that is worthwhile.
  • SegaBlueSky 2 years ago

    Dammit Nintendo, you just had to put Mega Man in Smash Bros, didn't you? No interest in the Wii U whatsoever until I saw that trailer!
  • Mister-Wario 2 years ago

    @simsini I'm not interested in any of the consoles at this point. Don't be so quick to assume condemnation of one console is automatically praise for another.
  • Lince 2 years ago

    I will spend that money solely for the new Killzone game
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Oh well, that's Nintendo that will be largely bypassed by many soon.

    One day, Nintendo will be up for competition and progress but that'll probably be when I turn 50. I can't wait for them to get their act together. May buy a 3DS but other than that its all PC, iOS, MS and Sony.
  • Lince 2 years ago

    Wii U has nothing like Infamous or even The Last of Us / Uncharted, games people hype not only kids with cute graphics, this is, my daughter smiled watching the Mario gameplay, it's too cute for adults even if gameplay is somewhat fun.
  • simsini 2 years ago

    @Mister-Wario So what is there to get excited about? Why would anyone spend £349 or £429 on a new console this Christmas?
  • Lethally-Obese 2 years ago

    Nintendo: Always a disappointment.
  • abacabb 2 years ago

    @damdai nintendo are a wealthier company than nike
  • frazzl 2 years ago

    I wonder if Stanton would think his quote "This is not a new generation, but a lick of paint on the same old rope - except this time, the seller keeps hold of one end. It beggars belief that this can be sold as innovation." is as applicable to Nintendo as he thought it was to MS.
  • Cobalt_Jackal 2 years ago

    @albo Nintendo are re-defining gaming xD lol
  • Mister-Wario 2 years ago

    @simsini how do you know we were getting excited about shooters? I thought most of the games Sony was showing us looked pretty naff. My most anticipated Playstation game right now is Puppeteer.
  • SidiousCyanide 2 years ago

    @albo lol
  • Lince 2 years ago

    they could have had hardware similar to that of PS4 for the same money Wii U did cost at launch, they should have delayed the launch to compete with MS/Sony
  • simsini 2 years ago

    There were many, many great games on all of those consoles. Did you play any of them?
  • albo 2 years ago

    well look on the bright side, at least i can play as a fat Italian plumber midget dressed in a cat suit on my wii u. Happy days.
  • peasoup 2 years ago

    @simsini it's because we know what Nintendo are capable of. Yet they continue to insult us.
  • DacoitOne 2 years ago

    Nintendo was once the brother I looked up to and admired and couldn't wait to hang around with. Now he's the brother with no job and no aspirations who tells you he will leave the house next month, or maybe the month after that. :(
  • SidiousCyanide 2 years ago

    When you think about it, there was only really a handful of great games on the Wii, Gamecube, N64, I reckon it'll be the same for the Wii U.
  • frazzl 2 years ago

    @DamDai New as in a new release, not new as in not shown to the public before.
  • rmjo 2 years ago

    So did you guys forget about Earthbound already? ;) That'll keep me busy until the new Monolith RPG. But yeah...Wii U is kind of rushed.
  • Cobalt_Jackal 2 years ago

    Dissappointment at all that wasted potential & re-hashed repetitive crap they serve up.
  • Lince 2 years ago

    not taking back their DS and 3DS consoles are absolutely brilliant, but the Wii U is nothing but a dust magnet at this point.
  • simsini 2 years ago

    It just grates on me that everyone seemed so excited yesterday when all we got was yet another open world game or yet another shooter. When Nintendo do the same thing they always get criticised.
  • Pro_wrestler 2 years ago

    What do Nintendo even do with their money? Get those games out! Start up another studuo! Buy some exclusives!
  • Cobalt_Jackal 2 years ago

    @DamDai Too true man, too true
  • frazzl 2 years ago

    It's a shame the best titles they showed are due next year. The Wii U is really hurting for new titles

    So the Wii U is being released in 2014 then?
  • Lince 2 years ago

    that old Zelda is the only Wii U game for 2013 Holidays... a bit sad and of course Wii U will get trounced by PS4/Xbox One... what are they thinking ? are they going full portable gaming ?
  • albo 2 years ago

    i was hoping for more info and added content on zelda. what they showed people pretty much predicted
  • Keresky 2 years ago

    @darkmorgado Are you high? Literally every single goddamned game Nintendo showed was a rehash of an already ancient franchise.
  • Pro_wrestler 2 years ago

    This was just another Nintendo Direct. There was absolutely nothing that made this episode stand out from the others.

  • Sniper_007 2 years ago

    So disappointing. I wasn't even hoping for new IP, but just a relaunch of a few old IPs. F-Zero, Starfox, even Wave Race. Something to make us remember why we used to love our old Nintendo consoles rather than even more delays!
    I have never regretted buying a console before, but this time I can't feel anything but disappointment :(

    the only surprise (well somewhat) was DK tropical breeze.

  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    It just finished, but somewhere will have a playback of it.

    No wonder they didn't want to get on stage. Makes sense now. This makes me sad.
  • Mister-Wario 2 years ago

    @simsini No, we wanted either new games are established IPs that tried to shake up their older ideas. Like Super Mario Galaxy. Nothing about shooters at all.
  • Cobalt_Jackal 2 years ago

    im 18 actually and you can stop with your arrogant, condecending tone. Nintendo's line up was poor not much else there really..Only a fanboy(which you clearly are but deny)would say otherwise..
  • Lince 2 years ago

    so sad my most anticipated Wii U game is some old Zelda remake you can already play on Dolphin emulator @1440p... 2014 titles too far off, Nintendo and Microsoft are quitting gaming business, it's all Sony again.
  • TechnicPuppet 2 years ago

    In among the constant Xbox bashing you seem to have forgotten an article about the PS4 online being behind a paywall.

    It was like turning up for a medical with hamstring injury. Nintendo our now Ruud van Nistelrooy.
  • DacoitOne 2 years ago

    Anyone who says Nintendo's show was better than MS or Sony are of their trolleys. Seriously. Disappoint to the max.
  • albo 2 years ago

    Where can i watch the e3 coverage nintendo just mentioed at the end of the direct?
  • melnificent 2 years ago

    No new nintendo IP.
    Lots and lots of nostalgia game remakes.

    When did they become so risk averse?
  • Pro_wrestler 2 years ago

    I can't believe that I am actually considering buying the hardware nightmare that is Xbox One. It seems to be the only console with games.
  • SidiousCyanide 2 years ago

    I bet those 2014 games will come late in the year.
  • Pacman8MyGhostkart 2 years ago

    @Hotcooler

    Nintendo is publishing Bayonetta 2, if it wasn't for them there wouldn't even be a sequel.
  • simsini 2 years ago

    It seems as if some people here just wanted the same generic shooters. Interesting to see some only coming in at the end with insults. I thought it was excellent overall, and although the delays are annoying, we know there are great things to come.
  • Rodriguez 2 years ago

    @Sid-Nice

    It starts in 2014.
  • seeyoshirun 2 years ago

    I'm gathering Eurogamer isn't Nintendo's crowd. Personally I want most of the games announced.

    And I don't see how making most of their games open-world/QTE/shooter makes the other companies more innovative.
  • harryisme 2 years ago

    Ustream sucks, can't watch anything because it's constantly buffering and and jumping all over the place, do we not have any other streaming providers? Sony conference was just as bad, though not as bad as this.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Did say it wasn't going to be much. That was a poor line up. They seem to think it s okay so good for them.

    No F Zero, Waverace, Blastcorps etc. Lacks imagination and too much safety.

    Some good stuff, still waiting for a true follow up to Mario 64.
  • Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago

    A bit too many mentions of 2014 but other than that pretty solid. Of course, as always, no real surprises but otherwise stellar line up. Also: MEGA MAN!!
  • Mister-Wario 2 years ago

    It was okay...nothing compelling to my mind. Very nostalgic and looking to the past for inspiration. I'm sure there's more to it than that, especially in stuff like Smash Bros, but as it stands I have no interest in Wii U whatsoever.
  • atomicjuicer 2 years ago

    No Metroid - well this makes my PS4 purchase decision even easier! Maybe a 3ds Metroid will come some day
  • Pro_wrestler 2 years ago

    How could Nintendo possibly have fucked up this generation more! They needed to come out with the big guns today. They announced nothing!

    Some of the games look decent, missed MK and 3D world, but 2014 release dates s too far off

    I missed the beginning so what exactly is due this year? Please don't tell me it's only Pikmin, Mario Kart and Zelda?
  • Lince 2 years ago

    no Metroid... whatever happened to this franchise, man this was alright, most titles are 2014 but oh well I can wait while playing PC & PS4, but no Metroid breaks my heart...

  • Pro_wrestler 2 years ago

    @vert1go Agreed. This looks so underwhelming.

    DK HD looked alright. Nothing new though. Hopefully the upcoming Bayonetta 2 trailer is more interesting.

    Bayonetta!

  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Miiverse Artist? Fun.
  • Lethally-Obese 2 years ago

    They should try to actual release some games. But they don't look like much at any rate, just ressed up Wii games. The assets and character models look nearly identical to the old Wii and 3DS versions.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Miiverse 3DS pleasepleaseplease
  • Thiral 2 years ago

    Awesome, better drawings :D
  • vizzini 2 years ago

    If they bring a pokemon game like the main series but with all the regions... I will be so damn happy, too bad it may not happen
  • javvyman 2 years ago

    Think people have got unrealistic expectations, we'll see Mario 3D, Mario Kart, Wind Waker HD, Smash Bros... maybe a a couple of new titles... wait a sec! that's a freaking awesome line-up!

    But im staying with Microsoft
  • tiffaneyplamondon 2 years ago

    @Danielleinberger You might think so. But no one else will uy it for those exact reasons. And its policies are what is going to kill it in the console war. It can't compare anymore. Sony offers the better game system right now. Microsoft can change those policies later, but it will be the point then and there that they failed the first time,a nd everyone would have already fell in with SOny

    Pokemon adventure on Wii U, like the old Gamecube ones :)
  • PeterAJTaylor 2 years ago

    @SpaceMonkey77 F-Zero to be honest, particularly if it is made in collaboration with Sega, an even better soundtrack than GX and has online play for 30 vehicles at once...
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Good luck with that Prismbox One then. Ripe for it.
  • Ziz0u 2 years ago

    I really hope they can turn this ship around. I would love to get a Wii U over a Xbox One.

    Well you know its on opion but, overall you pay for the availabilities on the xbox, sure it will have 24 hour check in online, but Microsoft has beaten Sony last time you know and I think Microsoft can still win this generatation, I love microsoft so yeah, I think Microsoft has more things on it thats why its 100 more dollars. @DamDai

    @vertigo lets hope so!
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    @Peter

    You could be right there. If you had to choose which would you prefer first, a new futuristic Waverace or another F Zero cut?

    I think I'd take Waverace. And maybe F zero later on.
  • ShiftBreaker 2 years ago

    Tea's ready, and I'm open minded to the Wii U. Impress me, Nintendo.
  • tiffaneyplamondon 2 years ago

    @DamDai There is cross game chat, party chat. The servers? We will have to wait and see
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Tom Phillips

    "The conference won't just be about Wii U, of course"

    So why have nintendo said it's all about the Wii U?
  • albo 2 years ago

    Maybe they cut out some stuff based on yesterdays conferences...
  • Skith666 2 years ago

    @Doonvas - Professional layabout so I'm fine - as you know mate ;-)
  • erp 2 years ago

    @Donlan Yup! It's called Globulous.
  • albo 2 years ago

    yeah, sucks that they told us weeks ago it would be one hour and then change it last minute
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Since Sony will be charging for PSN Plus as standard, that'll help pay for servers etc hopefully there should be less lag, stronger security etc. Fingers crossed that Lulz does knock at Sony's door again.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Not that worrying. Less pissing about with celebrities and "funny" material and CGI trailers.

  • ColdShoulder 2 years ago

    All I want is quality. Nintendo can take their sweet time with anything as long as it's worth the wait.
  • nathanherbener 2 years ago

    Okay awesome, I'm in Australia so I can watch it :D
  • PeterAJTaylor 2 years ago

    @SpaceMonkey77 Of course water is different, I just meant the settings. Can't see Nintendo putting out two futuristic racing games on a similar timescale.

    Yeah, hate it when they have different content in different regions for the direct. feels lkike im missing a lot of stuff from other directs
  • Thiral 2 years ago

    I usually buy all consoles. I got a Wii U (and love it) and I will get a PS4, but I wont get a xbox one for sure.

    @Skith666 So am I, Balls to it :-)
  • KuningasDon 2 years ago

    @Skith666 Totally worth it.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    For me, PS4 first then XboxOne when Kinect isn't compulsory and they drop their used game stance and that dirty price tag. £429 indeed?
  • Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago

    @Eldritch Gargoyle's Quest 2 was released on the NES. And #3 more or less on the SNES as Demon's Crest :)
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    A Pokemon X/Y direct is planned for later.
  • Skith666 2 years ago

    I'm certain I'm going to get fired for this! Watching whilst at work
  • Mr.Spo 2 years ago

    Apparently the Direct is roughly 40 minutes long, so I wouldn't have unrealistic expectations.
  • melstevenson 2 years ago

    ps4- but i wanna see whats happening on the 3ds side- I mean I wanna see pokemon X and Y and Zelda :D

  • simsini 2 years ago

    Can't wait for this. Yesterday was just the starter, this is the main course, dessert, cheese and biscuits and coffee and mints.
  • Eldritch 2 years ago

    Gargoyle's Quest 2.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    No, not really. Racing on water has different positive/negative effects on a race, that's one of the things that made Waverace so good. F Zero on the other hand is pretty clear tracks and few obstacles.
  • danielleinberger 2 years ago

    Hey guys tell me what system everyone in here is going to get the Xbox one or Ps4
  • Raiko101 2 years ago

    Online multiplayer Pilotwings please! I've only been waiting for it for the best part of two decades!
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    I think they'll have enough trouble squeezing in just the games we already know of.
  • albo 2 years ago

    Reggie, Iwata, Miyamoto and eiji Aonuma are all at e3 right now. Should be interesting to see what they present at the press event after the direct...
  • PeterAJTaylor 2 years ago

    @SpaceMonkey77 Doesn't/Wouldn't F-Zero U fill that particular niche?
  • melstevenson 2 years ago

    Oh great I made it on time :D
  • Daryoon 2 years ago

    Pokemon Snap for Wii U and I'm sold.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Super Pang Mii U
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    @Peter

    No, a better option for Waverace would be for Nintendo to give us the futuristic Waverace they once demoed prior to the N64 launch. Like Wipeoout but on water, it looked cool.

    @Der

    yeah, Planet Puzzle League is a class DS game, very addictive. Copies are tricky to find but worth it.

    @Donlan There's a Tetrisphere knockoff on Android (of course!). No idea if it's any good though.
  • MikkyX 2 years ago

    @joelstinton Super Pang U!
  • Eldritch 2 years ago

    I'd actually buy a Wii U for Advance Wars.
  • Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago

    @SpaceMonkey77 Haven't tried that yet. The only puzzle game I spent more time with than Tetrisphere would be Super Puzzle Fighter.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Gamecube VC news would be nice - expect we'll hear more of the Summer Update too.

    I like to see an new e-shop version of PANG!

    @joelstinton What if a new Wave Race game was set to a rave soundtrack? That would be an insta-buy!
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    @Der_tolle_Emil

    No I didn't, because Planet Puzzle League is a better game. Love that on DS.
  • roz123 2 years ago

  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    All I want to see is new Waverace and F Zero, both with online play.

    A Pilotwings game, Stunt Race 2 and Blast Corps 2, but they don't have the vision or passion for them anymore. These would convince me to buy a Wii U.
  • albo 2 years ago

    F Zero UX, Metroid U, Super Mario
    U-niverse. Please understand
  • telboy007 2 years ago

    I'm lubbin' my 3DS but very unlikely to buy the Wii U. There is quite contrasting success between their handhelds and consoles post SNES era. Except the Wii which sold like hot cakes obviously.

  • Mozz-eyes 2 years ago

    I have my Doritos and Mountain Dew ready for this.

    Stunt Race FX would result in more money being thrown at screens than Wiimotes allegedly were.

  • Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago

    I never played Star Tropics :(
  • tiffaneyplamondon 2 years ago

    It's also been stated that Pokemon X/Y news will be given to us consectibly. Supposedly an appearence on the Direct, The CoroCoro scans, and that Tv show Pokemon Smash is supposed to all have new information.
  • Mr.Spo 2 years ago

    Also, Star Tropics revival from Retro Studio. kthxbai.
  • Mr.Spo 2 years ago

    Fair enough, but I'd be surprised if they bothered with 3DS in any depth. It's doing absolutely fine and has a full line up to the end of the year. They could quite easily broadcast another Direct tomorrow about 3DS.

    Fingers crossed for F Zero Wii U.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    I hope Nintendo took Ellie's idea from yesterday and Mario will have a Quaver rifle.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    @Mr.Spo Nintendo have previously said Direct presentations were for a specific platform and had stuff for the other. No guarantee.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    No, leave Ellie alone. A bit of Snarky McQuipanquote is good. Its nothing you don't get on Giant Bomb etc, so on EG she's welcome.
  • Eldritch 2 years ago

    Axelay 2.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    And it isn't as if the games aren't different each time. Even in those cases.
  • Pacman8MyGhostkart 2 years ago

    The all nighter crew are back with a vengeance I see :)
  • Mr.Spo 2 years ago

    Don't expect anything for 3DS: Nintendo have been completely clear that this Direct is Wii U only. So Tom, this Direct WILL be Wii U only. 3DS has had lots of love since February, with a Direct every month and everything from Pokemon X&Y to Link to the Past 2 announced.

    From Nintendo's website:

    "Welcome to our Nintendo Direct@E3 2013 broadcast! Watch the presentation for the latest news on future Wii U software!"
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Metal Gear Solid... fifty? Franchise usage isn't limited to Nintendo.

  • kinky_mong 2 years ago

    Have EG done the right thing and slipped a couple of Valium into Ellie's coffee so we're spared her snarky attempts at comedy?
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    If only there was some way I could continue playing Mass Effect 3 with the TV showing Nintendo Direct... wait... I have a gamepad that can do that.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    On a better more positive note, I'd like to see some new games (not existing stuff) from them in their video, but that seems like asking too much of them these days.
  • Eldritch 2 years ago

    Pretty sure, that is.
  • Eldritch 2 years ago

    I'm pretty Ninty will kick everybdy's arse next year. They've always been full of surprises. And, yes, they're totally loaded.

  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    @joel

    I hear you, but didn't we just see MS more or less run their Xbox ship aground after eight years of plain sailing. Just goes to show, things change all the time.

    We all know Nintendo stuff sells loads, no doubt. But its like one bank making all the money, while others are like whatever, money to make elsewhere.

    Wouldn't have to doom and gloom anything if they sorted themselves out.

  • Ignatius_Cheese 2 years ago

    Ah! Welcome Christian! :) Good to have you here for added comedic effect.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    The doom and gloom is nothing new. Happened with the Wii, the DS, and even more with the 3DS for over a year.
    A little over 6 months the Wii U has had so far - and it sold better at launch than anything except the previous best selling launch console.
  • Ignatius_Cheese 2 years ago

    Are you the only staffer covering this, Tom? Is everyone else still in bed?
  • TonyHarrison 2 years ago

    Nintendo's recovery job has been made easier by Microsoft.

    Had both Sony and Microsoft knocked it out of the park this week, things would have been very different, but MS are intent on enforcing policies even more "draconian" than those Nintendo used to drag the industry out of the gaming crash.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @SpaceMonkey77 The Wii U flopping wouldn't be anywhere near enough to kill off Nintendo.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Feel free to look up the top selling Wii games from those franchises vs any big PS3 or 360 franchise you care to name. Go on. Go right ahead. The difference is TENS OF MILLIONS more in some cases. So yeah, there's demand for those games. More than for any others. By a long way. On that "casual" console.
  • Ignatius_Cheese 2 years ago

    @Skowhegan Some of us are having to wait til Friday to sample the delights of Animal Crossing... :(
  • joelstinton 2 years ago

    @spacemonkey Ahh the logic of when nintendo do well its pure luck, when they do bad its entirely down to each minute detail and decision by nintendo.

    Don't forgot the wii u comes of the back of 3 very succesful products. If they can turn it around, they can
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Then more the fool you are. November is five month out, then Wii U is going to get tag teamed by both MS and Sony.

    Underestimating Nintendo? They've done nothing to show why I shouldn't of late. Doesn't matter if Nintendo have all the money in Japan, if their Wii U isn't selling, its nothing but a door stop flop.
  • skowhegan 2 years ago

    @Ignatius_Cheese Got it. Nintendo has fumbled Wii U so far, but Animal Crossing and the recent 3DS renaissance is making me very happy.

  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Spacemonkey77

    You forget the absolute shit-tonne of money that Nintendo get from Pokemon licensing and their merchandise.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Underestimating how big Mario Kart, SSB and Mario sells - always a good idea.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Yes. I do.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Lol, was only a matter of time til some fanboy wheels out the numbers, while selectively forgetting that Wii U is selling at a snails pace after six months.

    Do you really, really think that's going to improve in the next six months? 3DS and certain Wii U games aside, overall I seriously doubt it.
  • joelstinton 2 years ago

    Looking forward to this!
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    I bet on Miiverse for 3DS "after this ends." (More wishful)
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Yeah they're screwed. Guaranteed system sellers and multimillion sellers like those, on top of that 99.06M selling previous console and the 3DS.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @SpaceMonkey77

    How are they screwed? They're rolling in cash.
  • Ignatius_Cheese 2 years ago

  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Nintendo are screwed on the home console front. Their suits must be sweating bullets.

    And probably Yarn Yoshi.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Along with the new Retro game which may or may not be Metroid.

    I'm getting the distinct impression that Tom really bloody hates Nintendo. Hardly the sort of person I'd trust to provide open-minded commentary on this.
  • vert1go 2 years ago

    Games we know are to be at E3; Mario Kart. Zelda WW HD. New 3D Mario. Expect alongside Bayonetta 2, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, NSLU.
  • Ignatius_Cheese 2 years ago

    Given that Nintendo Direct is pre-recorded, unless they intersperse it with some live comments from the top bods, a reaction to the PS4 price is unlikely :(
  • introiboad 2 years ago

    Nintendo need to make a big game splash here. At this point their project Cafe feels more diluted than what you get in German motorway rest stops.

  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Der_tolle_Emil

    Miyamoto has said he has absolutely no plans at all for F-Zero anymore as he can't think of anything new to do with it that would justify a new entry.
  • Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago

    @bradking: If you had a system restore from a backup thats +-2 months old you might want to check your DST settings.
  • Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago

    Regarding price cuts: I don't see a direct price cut as something Nintendo would want to do - bundles, however, especially with their upcoming 1st party lineup sound much more likely though.
  • mentalabhoration 2 years ago

    Will the stream work? don't make me listen to that awful waffling on IGN again please.
  • bradking 2 years ago

    Yeah. My phone has the countdown correctly . i did have to change the time a few days ago as had system restore could that have affected the js ?

    I'm hoping that Nintendo don't botch this up. The console desperately needs some first-party class acts to build on the goodwill that it has garnered after the disaster that was the Xbox One.

    If Nintendo get it right this done and they don't let Reggie's hubris get in the way of things, they have an ideal opportunity to become second-placed in this race.
  • kassmageant 2 years ago

    Sold xbox' was going to buy ps 3 for the last of us, but since itlooks like gaikai for ps 4 will take care of that - you actually have a chance at grabbing my attention ninny, show watcha got gurl!

    Why is e3.nintendo.com countdown stopped yet UK has to wait till 3pm ?

    Because you have set your time wrong on your computer (countdown is javascript and reacts to your local time)

    Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing is very much on my youngest's birthday wish list. But the household still hasn't seen any reason to want a Wii U yet ? perhaps the big N can change that this afternoon?
  • Darren 2 years ago

    I think I will give this one a miss, just like I did the Wii U! :p
  • patriot 2 years ago

  • Xboned 2 years ago

    Wii U , this is your chance to make a name for yourself, after all the kids laughed at you and called you ginger, go out there and let them know you won't be pushed around anymore.
  • Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago

    @ShiftBreaker
    So, what are the chances of Nintendo finally setting up an account system?
    That has already been announced and confirmed quite a while ago. Of course, they haven't introduced it yet but they said that the WiiU/3DS shop will merge in every way possible by the end of 2013 (I think?)
  • TechnicPuppet 2 years ago

    @Arsecake_Baker

    I was non stop on Fire Emblem Awakening at the weekend. Never thought I would like a game like that but i'm a bit obsessed.

  • ollyn 2 years ago

    I should have said Console showing because 3Ds showing has been top notch.
  • Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago

    If they show even the slightest bit of F-Zero they've "won" E3 as far as I am concerned.
  • ollyn 2 years ago

    Not been really that hyped about nintendo but the closer it comes the more intrigued i become. Come on Nintendo get your arses in gear your showing in the last 12 months has been embarrassing heres your chance to set the record straight.
  • Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago

    Finally, some games! Also, Reggie is awesome.
  • Xboned 2 years ago

    My wish list, Metroid, F-Zero, Starfox , and a glimpse of a new Zelda for Wii U.

    I now instead I will get Mario Party 10, but I can dream
  • StooMonster 2 years ago

    Nintendo have got an E3 conference? Wow, with all the Apple, Microsoft and Sony news yesterday I'd completely forgotten about the big N.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    I'm really excited to see what they're cooking up for the new 3D Mario.
  • KuningasDon 2 years ago

    Same here, just recently bought back into handhelds with a 3DSXL and Monster Hunter, not been on the pc or console since!
  • smoothpete 2 years ago

    I could do with a laugh
  • Psiloc 2 years ago

    Don't see why they can't easily take second place. Good luck Ninty, my old friend.
  • Pacman8MyGhostkart 2 years ago

    Price cut for Wii-U or early adopters plan.

    One of those with Bayonetta 2 and the Wonderful 101 coming this Xmas may make me finally bite!
  • Pacman8MyGhostkart 2 years ago

    It's that time again people.

    Get hype for a presser that will (hopefully) be more in-game than CGI!
  • TechnicPuppet 2 years ago

    Woop Woop. As a new 3DS owner(first time with Nintendo console) I have no idea what I want to see. But show me something good anyways.
  • Lethally-Obese 2 years ago

    They'd better hit extremely hard on this one, or it's going to be an even more difficult story for them.

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

13:55 By Tom Phillips

Welcome to another E3 showing from Nintendo! This year we get a more low key pre-recorded Nintendo Direct broadcast rather than the usual fancypants conference.

13:57 By Tom Phillips

After Microsoft and Sony's squabbling we'll hopefully get to the main event - a chance to see Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto cosplay as Link.

13:58 By Tom Phillips

13:59 By Tom Phillips

Nintendo of America ass-kicker Reggie will also surely make an appearance. If you don't watch he'll know.

13:59 By Tom Phillips

14:01 By Tom Phillips

A pre-recorded event will hopefully mean a showing without any Wii Remote technical problems or endless 4-player demos of Pac-Man Versus (remember that year?)

14:01 By Tom Phillips

14:04 By Tom Phillips

What will Nintendo call its next 3D Mario, then? Mario Galaxy 3 - no, wait, that's Sega's new Sonic game.

14:06 By Tom Phillips

14:08 By Tom Phillips

That's your man Reggie, Nintendo of America's Bill Trinen, European boss Satoru Shibata, Miyamoto and Iwata, there. Aonuma obviously had trouble getting his Black Widow costume on.

MPuzzlemanLives says:

I think a price cut is a sure thing after Sony's PS4 price release.

14:11 By Tom Phillips

Retailers are already selling the Wii U at huge discount in the UK, some as low as £199. Will Nintendo make this official, or throw in a couple of extra games?

14:13 By Tom Phillips

Hey Nintendo, announce a new Retro Studios-developed Metroid game and I'll let you off the £300 I spent back last November.

14:14 By Tom Phillips

Ignatius_Cheese says:

Given that Nintendo Direct is pre-recorded, unless they intersperse it with some live comments from the top bods, a reaction to the PS4 price is unlikely :(

14:25 By Tom Phillips

The conference won't just be about Wii U, of course. 3DS has lots to look forward to, including a new Zelda: Link to the Past sequel, Pokémon X/Y and its own version of Smash Bros.

14:25 By Christian Donlan

Advance Wars. Please?

14:25 By Tom Phillips

Perhaps even a 3DS XXL with an integrated Circle Pad, too?

14:34 By Martin Robinson

Dare to dream...

Eldritch says:

Axelay 2.

14:37 By Christian Donlan

What are the chances of a Retro-made Stunt Race FX?

14:42 By Martin Robinson

I paid £80 for Stunt Race FX when it came out. Such a mug.

14:44 By Christian Donlan

Tetrisphere. Now there is a game.

14:44 By Christian Donlan

No regrets.

14:46 By Christian Donlan

@Erp - REALLY?! That is genuinely exciting to hear.

14:46 By Christian Donlan

Surely Tetrisphere would be amazing in 3D, too.

14:51 By Christian Donlan

@Skith666 - as long as you aren't a surgeon, I think you'll be okay.

14:52 By Christian Donlan

Or a pilot.

14:55 By Christian Donlan

@Erp - I'm on it. Thanks so much!

15:01 By Christian Donlan

We're in! Pokemon X and Y.

15:02 By Christian Donlan

My favourite chromosomes.

15:02 By Christian Donlan

The leaks were true! Fairy Pokemon.

15:02 By Christian Donlan

Take that Dragon Pokemon.

15:03 By Christian Donlan

I saw a man eating a bag of Walkers with a pair of chopsticks the other day.

15:05 By Christian Donlan

New 3D Mario.

15:05 By Christian Donlan

Looks 3D Landish.

15:06 By Christian Donlan

Super Mario 3D World for Wii U.

15:07 By Christian Donlan

Four players in a 3D world. Mario Luigi Toad and Princess Peach.

15:07 By Christian Donlan

Toad is faster, for example.

15:07 By Christian Donlan

Co-op or competition.

15:08 By Christian Donlan

New power-up: Cat Mario. He is sick everywhere and ruins armchairs.

15:08 By Christian Donlan

Not really - can climb walls and scratch enemies.

15:08 By Christian Donlan

Out in December.

15:08 By Tom Phillips

Mario Kart for Wii U next!

15:09 By Tom Phillips

Looks like it has vertical walls, and wheels which can turn round to grab different surfaces.

15:10 By Tom Phillips

Of course there's a Princess Peach's Castle level.

15:10 By Tom Phillips

And it's called... Mario Kart 8!

15:11 By Martin Robinson

Mario Kart 8's coming out in Spring 2014.

15:11 By Robert Purchese

It's not just racing other players but sharing the fun with other people around the world. Mario Kart 8 will launch in spring 2014.

15:12 By Martin Robinson

And, in far less exciting news, it's a new Mario Party.

15:12 By Martin Robinson

Wii Party U a mix of party games, naturally - it's at least a good workout for the GamePad.

15:12 By Martin Robinson

It was intended for release this summer - but it's being pushed back to an undisclosed date.

15:12 By Martin Robinson

ALSO DELAYED! Wii Fit U.

15:13 By Martin Robinson

Being delayed for new features.

15:13 By Martin Robinson

And another apology from Iwata. Maybe they should announce that you can play used games on the Wii U seeing as that's a feature now?

15:14 By Martin Robinson

On to the Miiverse now.

15:14 By Martin Robinson

There's a new instalment of Art Academy but - this is a trend here - it's not near completion.

15:15 By Martin Robinson

But the drawing tool developed for it will be available on the eShop this summer.

15:15 By Martin Robinson

Giving Miiverse creations another boost.

15:15 By Martin Robinson

I'm already in awe of what's on the Miiverse. This is actually quite exciting.

15:16 By Martin Robinson

Also Dan in the office has just noticed how intense Iwata's eyebrows are.

15:16 By Martin Robinson

Running through third-party offerings now - there's Batman: Arkham Origins, on Wii U and 3DS.

15:17 By Martin Robinson

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut, Just Dance and Disney Infinity.

15:17 By Martin Robinson

Scribblenauts DC, again on Wii U and 3DS, and Disney's Planes.

15:18 By Martin Robinson

Blacklist is coming on August 21st, and Sonic Galaxy - sorry, Sonic Lost World - is due this year.

15:18 By Martin Robinson

All stuff we knew about, but it's a sizeable list nevertheless.

15:19 By Martin Robinson

This could be an announcement of sorts - Nintendo's support of indies, which is already fairly strong, is rumoured to be bolstered soon.

15:19 By Martin Robinson

There's DuckTales, Dungeons and Dragons. Wait, these aren't indies? Sorry, they're digital downloads.

15:20 By Martin Robinson

Scram Kitty and Shovel Knight and Spin the Bottle - now they're proper indies.

15:20 By Martin Robinson

Legend of Zelda Wind Waker now.

15:21 By Martin Robinson

There's a new video. It's HD, obviously. Some of the purity of the original's cel-shading's been lost, though, and I can't help but feel sad about that.

15:21 By Martin Robinson

The bloom that we saw in our first look's been toned down, mind, and this looks a lot more convincing.

15:22 By Martin Robinson

Will they be restoring the infamous missing dungeons?

15:22 By Martin Robinson

The Wii U version runs at 1080p.

15:23 By Martin Robinson

And there have been adjustments to the game....

15:24 By Martin Robinson

Right now, they're just announcing that the Tingle Tuner - previously accessed by hooking up a GBA to the GameCube - is aped by the GamePad. Kind of - you can now post to MiiVerse with the Tingle Tuner.

15:24 By Martin Robinson

Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD is due in October.

15:24 By Martin Robinson

Wonderful 101 now, which is out before then.

15:24 By Christian Donlan

Ohhh BOY. Back in time for WOnderful 101.

15:25 By Christian Donlan

Lovely hit-pause in this one. It feels like you're chewing through baddies.

15:25 By Martin Robinson

Which is out on August 23rd over here. Not long to wait!

15:25 By Christian Donlan

Do go on Twitter and ask Kamiya if Bayonetta's going to end up in Smash Bros, BTW. That always turns out well.

15:26 By Christian Donlan

The spirit of Viewtiful Joe is alive and well.

15:26 By Martin Robinson

There'll be a Wonderful 101 dedicated Direct soon.

15:27 By Martin Robinson

A new Kong game. Exciting, but please tell me this isn't what Retro's been up to all this time.

15:27 By Christian Donlan

Is this what Retro's been up to? Adding jelly to Donkey Kong?

15:28 By Christian Donlan

Donkey Kong's island has been over-run by vikings.

15:28 By Martin Robinson

It'll be the first Donkey Kong in HD.

15:28 By Martin Robinson

And you can see his fur flowing! I don't want to see the Retro logo anywhere near this, though.

15:29 By Martin Robinson

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, coming out later this year.

15:29 By Martin Robinson

Oh well, we're about to see Bayonetta from the... front? Say what Iwata?

15:30 By Martin Robinson

She's got shorter hair. The camera's still a total perv too.

15:31 By Christian Donlan

Ulp. Looks like Donkey Kong is being made by Retro.

15:31 By Martin Robinson

Yeah, short hair is a feature.

15:31 By Martin Robinson

Just heard that Donkey Kong is being developed by Retro....

15:31 By Christian Donlan

Maybe Nintendo has asked Double Helix to make the new Metroid.

15:31 By Martin Robinson

Oh well. Bayonetta 2 looks great in action.

15:32 By Christian Donlan

Topical.

15:32 By Martin Robinson

It's dead. As is my heart right now.

Progguitarist says:

Where is METROID

15:33 By Martin Robinson

On the plus side, Monolithsoft's RPG looks absolutely marvellous.

15:33 By Martin Robinson

The goal's to create a large scale open world, says Iwata.

15:34 By Martin Robinson

Leaning on the experience from Xenoblade.

15:34 By Christian Donlan

Monolithsoft's working on a large-scale open world. Wii U. Robots and dinosaurs.

15:34 By Christian Donlan

2014. Please stay tuned.

15:34 By Martin Robinson

Robots, big arse monsters and an amazing open world. A 2014 release.

15:34 By Christian Donlan

ONE FINAL GAME.

15:34 By Martin Robinson

Smash Bros. to take us home.

15:35 By Christian Donlan

Tell me that Nook Jerk is in Smash Bros.

15:35 By Martin Robinson

If you could smackdown Nook that would indeed be a thing.

15:35 By Christian Donlan

Can you hit someone with Link's train?

15:36 By Christian Donlan

Metroid. Too soon, Nintendo. Too soon.

15:36 By Christian Donlan

VILLAGER!

15:36 By Martin Robinson

Alright, you can play as the villager from Animal Crossing.

15:36 By Christian Donlan

Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U. Knock over trees!

15:36 By Martin Robinson

Mega Man's in it this time.

15:37 By Christian Donlan

Lordy, and Mega Man's in it too.

15:37 By Martin Robinson

But yeah, the villager from Animal Crossing! Exciting, right?

15:38 By Christian Donlan

Smash Bros website and Miiverse community opening today by the sounds of it.

15:38 By Martin Robinson

Being released in 2014.

15:38 By Christian Donlan

Sorry Martin!

15:39 By Martin Robinson

Don't forget that Retro's making a new game! Oh, and it's a new Donkey Kong. Yeah, that wasn't all that.

Pro_wrestler says:

This was underwhelming. Hardly a single game announced that we didn't already know about and everything is delayed.

15:39 By Christian Donlan

Hmm. Some lovely stuff in there, but some real disappointments too.

15:39 By Christian Donlan

Mario looks great, but I think a lot of us were hoping for a Galaxy follow-up of some kind.

15:40 By Christian Donlan

And no Metroid.

15:40 By Christian Donlan

There's always Gamescom?

15:40 By Martin Robinson

That's the end of the conferences. There's plenty more to come from E3, of course.

15:40 By Martin Robinson

Oli's going to be checking out Nintendo's games later today, and will be giving you his impressions soon.

15:40 By Christian Donlan

By this point, Nintendo might as well call its E3 press event: There's Always Gamescom.

15:41 By Martin Robinson

Plus there's plenty more to discover from Sony and Microsoft et al.

Sid-Nice says:

When does this start?

15:42 By Martin Robinson

@Sid-Nice come back in 12 months and maybe they'll have something?

15:45 By Martin Robinson

Well, that old Zelda game looked nice, didn't it?

15:49 By Martin Robinson

It's not looking like a great Christmas for Nintendo - going up against two new consoles with a ten-year-old Zelda and a Mario that, quite honestly, looks rushed.

15:54 By Martin Robinson

Sorry, just had to go and wipe away the tears, which seems to be something of a tradition when it comes to Nintendo at E3 lately. Anyway, that's a wrap. Hope you can join us here for the rest of the show!

16:01 By Christian Donlan

Still! At least we learned there's a Tetrisphere clone on Android, right?
