No thread for the One Piece news? Romance Dawn ported to 3DS, Unlimited World Red heading to 3DS, and speculation of an Unlimited World Blue coming to Wii U.

How long do you guys think it will be?
45 minutes at least and 1 hour long at the most. I hope we're surprised and it's more then an hour. The media or retailer conference is at 9:30am PDT. So that gives them 2 and half hours to work with if they chose to. Maybe just 2 hours as they want to give people at least a half hour to get from their hotels and then to E3 to take advantage of the media event before people start being let in.

Treasure's 3DS game and that Dragon Marked for Death 3DS game by Marvelous and Inti Creates.
I think he was talking about Nintendo published titles... Needless to say, I'm pretty hyped for both of these. Hope Inti Creates' game is side-view. And for the record, I wouldn't be surprised if Treasure's game is published by Nintendo.

Would be an inferior product?

I wouldn't mind. It means I wouldn't have to be late for work :p

I hope they avoid any talks in regards to their summer releases.
I fully expect to see the multiplayer of Pikmin 3 and more footage of Wonderful 101. Pikmin 3 is going to bring the meltdowns if they show it again.

I'd expect this Nintendo Direct to last as long as their usual E3 conference or close to it. Remember: Nintendo is holding an event for media at the same time this year as their usual conference.

June 11th is my birthday. Nintendo better not fuck up my day.
Reggie: "We here at Nintendo understand it is not only a special day because of e3, but we are also aware many fans out there are celebrating their Birthdays. To let these fans celebrate early, we've decided to split our hour long direct into two 30 minute directs. We are excited to say we will announce the second half in the not so distant future to get a glimpse of Mario kart, 3d Mario and our very special super smash brothers trailer."

How many directs are they gonna have during E3. Is it just this one?
My understanding this particular Direct would be week after next, early that week. That was the plan for this particular direct, so evidently they moved it so it can be during E3 itself...interesting. I'm still thinking there may be a smaller Mini direct week after next though. So as to not spill the beans, ill share what I believe will be the contents of this Dorect along with a few tidbits about each thing. It's going to be a largely Wii U Direct. These aren't in any particular order of actual showing, rather its going by what things people want to hear the most about.

1. Retro: Finally after at least a few years development, their game is finally ready to be unveiled. What is it? It's an old Nintendo IP that people have wanted them to do for a while, but no one thought they had the guts to do it-but they did. I'm very happy with the one they chose to do. It'll definitely fall into that "Wooooo helllll yeah!!!" category for a vast majority I think. Trailer set to be shown at the Direct.

2. Mario....wow is everyone in for a really huge treat with this!!! I know the exact title of the latest adventure. Everything's been so vague hint wise so ill say something a little more exact about it. That 100 Year Guy is right on one thing-it's an enormously large, grand adventure in scope and size. Development began on Wii, not too long after Galaxy 2 was done. This adventure brings together a lot of levels, concepts, ideas, level types, mechanics and characters people have been begging for a long time for. Maybe you'll finally see Wart again this time ;) it makes very clever, imaginative use of the game pad but its definitely not forced. You can certainly play with traditional controls. Trailer and a giid look at game play on the Direct. Release set for late October. This October.

3. Zelda. First the bad news..it's a mid 2015 title at the soonest. They are debating between middle and Thanksgiving/Christmas 2015. Aim is to have most of if not all the game to look like that tech demo from 2 years ago. Story is the longest and grandest in the series. You MAY see some brief concept art at this E3 but they're looking more to fully unveil it early next year. They're debating between a few ideas as well as concepts and which they want to use. They want a familiar yet really fresh take on this for everyone. How soon you'll get it depends on that. They may again make a brief mention at this direct with the understanding it's still too early to show. No exact title yet. Just Zelda Wii U ATM.

4. Mario Kart U....this mighta changed but last impression I got from it is its basically a souped up Mario Kart 7...literally. Think that, online play if course and Miiverse integration slapped in. It should be out in time for this Christmas 2013. Aim was to bring out something for the U that's on the safe side that's guaranteed to help jump start the U. Some added tweaks and whistles here and there. Trailer plus some gameplay at the Direct.

5. Super Smash Bros. 4...As promised by Mr. Iwata and Reggie, it will finally be unveiled during this Direct. What you're about to see is...odd. How to describe...there will be an unveil trailer, and during this trailer a few characters in the. Roster will be announced. All the others are black shadowy silhouettes. You should get a good idea who some of them are, others will be "Who the hell's that supposed to be!?" The full roster will be gradually unveiled from now till release. Release is aiming for Thanksgiving 2014. It might slip to closer to Christmas though. The aim is to launch both the 3DS and U games same day, so they'll do what it takes to get that to happen. This is the big 2014 game for Nintendo. 3DS version is further along than the U one. That one will also be shown on th Direct. Some parts of U version done, others still cooking. Coding, etc set to start in earnest this fall. It looks great ;)

6. General Wii U...possibly price cut, they really would rather not but they understand this nay be the only way to re jump start it. Possible Ambassador Program 2, looking at a few neat ideas for that. They will attempt one last time to very clearly communicate what the U is and isn't. They want to get people excited again and show good value.

X and Yarn Yoshi will have trailers. Both 2014 games. SMT x Fire Emblem is still too soon to show, but it's a really weird ass collaboration project-will be in a good way for fans of both,

One final huge surprise.,.its both a oh hell this makes sense and with kind of thing rolled into one. The aim is to introduce it fully in Fall of Winter. Timing still being decided. May or may not be announced at the Direct.

That's all for your Nintendo stockings, see you all after E3 ;)

Huh? Is this your hopes and dreams post? That would be horrible if that was true of Mario Kart.

For what it's worth:

Last year's Pre-E3 Nintendo Direct was 30 minutes.

January's Megaton Wii U Direct was 36 minutes.

Last year's E3 Press Conference was 70 minutes.


I'm going to predict... this year's Nintendo Direct will be 50 minutes. Hopefully dedicated entirely to first party games, considering Wii U has no third party support.

The lack of conference has really killed my hype, unfortunately. I know we'll still get some great announcements, but it's really not the same. :(

Plus their conference last year pretty much killed my interest in Wii U.
