    Should we seriously expect any major announcements? I would think they would save that for E3?

    I am guessing some Bayo 2 footage, Pikmin and some nonsense about the Miiverse.

    Would love a new Metroid/Zelda announcement with gameplay but I am pretty sure there isnt a chance in hell of that happening.

    Valar morghulis.

    Realistic but disappointing expectations

    - Footage of previously seen games
    - Waffle


    Not likely but reasonably realistic but fantastic expectations

    - Bayonetta 2 Footage
    - Wonderful 101 Footage
    - Monolithsoft RPG unveiling
    - Yoshi's Island unveiling
    - Cool new OS Features

    Completely Unrealistic dreams

    As above but with
    - Metroid game from Retro
    - Mario 3d game footage

    They have done quite a few of these Nintendo Directs now and the size of announcements do vary from one to the next. At least now they hinting at what they are about before they start so you have a better idea of what to expect.
    The biggest announcements I can recall happining during previous Nintendo Directs are the 3DS XL, New Super Mario Bros 2 and the next pokemon games. Usually it is smaller stuff like eShop games, third party japanese games and release dates so I wouldn't get too excited.

    Bayonetta 2 was in the last one.

    DFawkes is right. It's something you often do. Moaning about 'their mod' is just asking for a sharting too.

    My particular reason for hating your bomb threads is that as soon as you stick the 'bomb' tag on *anything* from Nintendo, it is guaranteed to be a disappointing plop. Right now, I'm really looking forward to reading about the new Luigi's Mansion game, and I'm dreading that you might call it 'the bomb' and instantly turn it to slurry. Ditto Pikmin3. You have the Midarse touch.

    Well, they announced Pokemon via their Direct thing, and that's one of their biggest franchises - bigger than Metroid and Zelda combined - so I don't see why they can't announce more games that way. And they can't save everything for E3, or else they risk splitting the coverage/hype ("Weeey! Zelda! Weeeey! Metroid! WEEEEEEY!!! Smash Bros!!! Wait, what was the first one ag-WEEEEEEEEY!!! F-ZERO STARFOX!!!" )

    Since they announced their main 3DS release for 2013, perhaps they'll use this as an opportunity to announce their big name Wii U title.

    Lego City is looking good in the new trailer (gameplay wise, graphically it's a bit hit and miss)

    That looks great. If it comes out at the same time as Monster Hunter though, I don't know how much of it i'll get to play.

    Retro Studios Game Speculation


    Based on the information so far, here is what we have gathered.
    - Artist left Naughty Dog because he doesn’t enjoy working on realistic look games.
    - Prefers stylized graphics. Says Retro is a better fit for him.
    - The lead artist of Epic Mickey is involved on this project.
    - The game will have high quality hand painted 2D texture maps
    - High quality 3D geometry for game environments
    - According to Monty Goulet’s YouTube video from his official YouTube channel, he finished working on Retro’s game on August 2012. (Update: Video description now updated to say August 2010.)
    - A contract artist named Crystel Land started working on a Nintendo IP for Retro Studios on May 2012.
    - The game will have ambient, environmental and weather effects.
    - Not only will the game have enemies, but it will also have bosses.
    - The game will have cinematics/cutscenes.
    - Miyamoto says Retro is too busy for Zelda.
    - On March 2011, Tanabe says they don’t currently have a DKC2 planned at the moment.

    Another thing to consider are the large number of job openings at Retro in the last year. Is it possible that Retro might have more than one project going, or is this Wii U project really that big?

    I fully expect today to be a big steaming fart of disappointment, no bombs today I hope :-)
    Bayonetta 2 was a bit of a bomb, surely? .

    "Not only will the game have enemies it will also have bosses"

    "The game will have cinematics"

    "High quality 3D geometry for environments"

    Fuck me, that has to be the most pointless speculation ever. Basically, retro studios are working on a new game. Hold the press!

    "The game will have a menu screen"
    "The game will use ambient sound effects"
    "The game will have a save feature"

    Fucking pointless.

    If we do get GC games on the virtual console, i'd like Wind Waker, Super Mario Sunshine, Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door and the Viewtiful Joes please. They're all games I loved on the GC but never finished for one reason or another.

    I'm thinking that the best/ most exciting thing we see out of this is some new eshop game from Nintendo. Maybe based on an already existing franchise.
