I kind of hope Nintendo doesn't spill the beans on Wii U information when we are just a couple of weeks away from E3. At least with the 3DS, Nintendo has Paper Mario, Animal Crossing, Pokemon Black & White 2, Fire Emblem, Mario Tennis, Luigi's Mansion 2, and New Super Mario Brothers 2 to choose to reveal more news and trailers for. We also could hear which games will be included in Kirby's 20th anniversary complication title. There's like more than 10 platformer games and a handful of spin-off titles for Nintendo to choose from. Of course, most of the ones on the virtual console will be on it.

They're definitely not gonna "spill the beans" but at this point we need something to tide us over, more confirmation of Mario U, info on VC content transfer, NiN tidbits, a single screen, anything.

The presentations usually go up pretty quickly afterwards on the IR site (in Japanese, at least, but that's why you have people like me), followed by the Q&As.

Seriously though I expect them to focus on Nintendo's online and that you can now buy eShop games for 3DS from websites and and smartphones. Plus a logo or two of Wii U games that we already know about.

I actually predict another Weekly News Magazine feature on the new controller like they did with the Wii back in Time- May 2006.




Though, this time the controller isn't as new and interesting as the original Wii controller was.

Pretty much.

Exhibit A: Project CARS promo material has a WiiU logo one day, and the next day it's gone.

Exhibit B: Previously announced titles, such as Darksiders II, have ZERO WiiU-related media.

Exhibit C: What, you thought absolutely NO GAME ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR A YEAR was normal?!

Many games from e3 11 that've been announced for wii u have not been talked about again in detail since their initial announcements. There are other games in the past few months that have announced wii u support with logos in press releases, web pages (project cars), etc. that have been subsequently taken down. Lastly there have been a couple of developers, Ono, vigil, etc. that have even directly said or hinted that nintendo has been laying down heavy NDAs for the system and it's upcoming games.

Like, an Earthbound or MOTHER 1 remake? Because I think Itoi said the series is pretty much done. But I would take a remake if it allowed them to actually release it here.

They wouldn't save it for the big reveal though because nobody would know what it is. :(

No. If they do hold anything back, it would probably be an indepth look at the OS or NiN. No hardware stuff is going to remain secret months before launch. Also, corporate spying is common place. Microsoft and Sony know more about the wii U than we do.

Hence why there are various WiiU dev kits in the wild at the moment. The ones with the best kits are the ones smart enough to keep their mouths shut.

Not a remake an all new entry in the series I think if it starred Ness people would know I mean look at kid icarus one smash bros and people are all over him why not give Earthbound the same treatment it could work again....

Yes, it could work. But. The writer of the series (Itoi) has stated he's done with MOTHER, and chances are, even if he came back, it wouldn't get released over here.
The best chance are VC ports or remakes, but it's doubtful we'll get those, unless they either buy the rights for all the music and shit, or they change it. Option 2 is unlikely cause Itoi has expressed opposition of changing the sound design.

@Terrell:
By the way; I don't like parting on bad footing (or starting on it) - are we done with our little thing? Cause you seem like a cool guy. Don't want to put a potential buddy-ship in jeopardy cause of me misunderstanding.

No, I meant secret games and OS features like you described. For example, don't be surprised to hear nothing about Retro's new game.

If they retain the Wii brand, naming it anything but the Wii 2- which flat out denotes a generational leap- will be stupid. The audiences, as they have already amply demonstrated, are too dumb to recognize a generational leap when they see one, unless it is actually told to them in as many words that this is a new system they're dealing with, not a revision.
