Rumor: Paper Mario Wii U is in development by Intelligent System
Rumor: Is Retro Studio going to announce a new game?
It's been 5 years since the last Metroid game, is it time for a new one?
Yoshi's Woolly World is releasing in a week in Europe will NA get a release date?
Hyrule Warriors for 3DS leaked earlier last week.
Mario Maker is set to have a big presence at E3.
Blast Ball: A new Metroid Prime Hun... a sci-fi team-based soccer shooter game. Was revealed during the Nintendo World Championship. We might see more of it at the Digital Event.
Star Fox Wii U should have its grand reveal.
Where are the Project (Guard, Robot) games?



Coming soon!

Here's my prediction card. I'm not including anything that was already dealt with in the pre-E3 Micro Direct; we're not going to see the likes of Mario & Sonic Rio or Chibi-Robo at all, or as a two-second flash in a sizzle reel at most.

(I am cautiously understating my confidence that Metroid will indeed show up.)

Known and securely expected

- Star Fox title, details, footage, and release window
- Super Mario Maker release details (pre-included stages, sharing features)
- 8-bit Mario and Animal Crossing Amiibo
- Hyrule Warriors 3DS
- Blast Ball, whatever it is

Awaited information

- Xenoblade X release window and first localized footage
- Splatoon additional modes and DLC past August
- Fire Emblem If western release plan (i.e. single or multiple editions)
- Release plan for Happy Home Designer, Amiibo cards, and NFC peripheral

Reasonable guesses (pick four)

- Brief mention/teaser of Zelda to affirm it's still coming, possibly with a title
- Pokémon Z for n3DS (if not exclusive, then certainly optimized to push it)
- Pokken confirmed for Wii U (assuming it isn't too early in the arcade cycle)
- One forthcoming SSB4 fighter
- One unknown small-scale spinoff of a core IP
- One unexpected license of a first-party IP to a third party
- One n3DS-exclusive port of a GC/Wii title
- Whatever happened to Giant Robot/Guard

Outside possibilities (pick two)

- Animal Crossing U (assuming the Amiibo line hints at this and not Happy Home Designer)
- Metroid (this is the year!)
- Non-Olympic Mario sports title (please be Strikers)
- Paper Mario U
- SMTxFE (I very much doubt we'll get it in NA/EU until after E3 2016, but we might see another tease)
- SNES Remix
- One Splatoon-sized push for an original IP
- One revival of something very dead (Ice Climber?)
- One HD remaster for Wii U
- GameCube Virtual Console (not everything needs analogue L/R—cf. TTYD, Path of Radiance)

Anticipated but arguably too region-specific for the main show

- Yoshi's Woolly World (NA) release date and Amiibo bundles
- Virtual Console games already released in JP/EU (Zero Mission, Star Successor, etc.)
- Successor loyalty programme to Club Nintendo

Not holding my breath in the slightest

- Substantial Zelda gameplay (denied)
- NX, mobile games, or Iwata's QOL sleep monitor (denied)
- Wii U hardware revision
- Devil's Third (shoved under the rug)
- Mother 3 localization (it's coming, but not yet)
- Advance Wars
(sigh)
- A new exclusive from PlatinumGames
- F-Zero
- Clu Clu Land Uprising
- The goddamned 3D Mario that will finally get SM64 kids to shut up about 3D World not being "real"
