Wasn't there an accurate leak of ARMS where the leaker (wrongly) speculated that it looked Platinum-esque?

I'm not saying the S&P thing is even remotely credible, but even real information can be interspersed with educated guessing.

That post also feels like it's just trying to replicate the pre-Switch conference leak, even down to saying there's a game that looks like Platinum.

Or this.

Seems like they're going all in on Mario. Probably a good idea, just hope they still have surprises for the fans.

I mean, is that surprising given this?

If that leak is true. No Metroid is the disappointment that never fails to deliver. Everything else seems cool though! Gonna be a fun year and beyond with the Switch.

So the leak is true, now my only hope is that pilotwings is not a complete disaster and empty of content.

Pilotwings? Leak? Please?!

Leak is here:

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=239597109&postcount=1482

This doesn't necessarily confirm its veracity yet, though.

If that leak is true. No Metroid is the disappointment that never fails to deliver. Everything else seems cool though! Gonna be a fun year and beyond with the Switch.

The leak even if fully true would not at necessarily discount the possibility of Metroid. It is entirely possible that some announcements and teasers at the Spotlight, in PR and at Treehouse will be for games that do not have a presence on the show floor (in playable or video form).

What's the probability of Mario outshining BOTW this year? commercially I would say it's a given since... well it's Mario, but critically... I think it's going to put up a fight as well.

I really hope it does, only because that would mean it would be an amazing game.

I think it depends very much on how people 3D Mario in this form. Open world action adventure is I believe the most highly regarded genre in general by critics these days. Mario isn't exactly action adventure and the more akin to 90's 3D platformers it is the more polarizing it may be since platforming as the focus in an open world hasn't been a popular genre in a long time. The last game Nintendo made with open world platforming was Sunshine. Galaxy has more in common with the 3DL/W games with its mainly linear levels. I hope for it to be received with great success, though.

(I expect to love the game, though, don't get me wrong.)

"Take me down to The New Donk City
Where shooms are red and the princesses pretty.
Oh won't you please take a waaaaarrrrrp zoonnnnne"

4chan leak sounds super plausible if it wasn't for the timing. Never liked Wave Race or Pilotwings enough to buy separately....together though....hmmm. Also, Octopath Traveler is my most anticipated Switch game (outside of Mario). Hope we see it!

Thanks for the link.

That leaks seems pretty plausible (Sin and Punishment would be pretty dope), but if it IS true, I hope Pilotwings and Waverace isn't a half-assed outing. I love Pilotwings 64 and Wave Race 64 + Blue Storm.

Leak or not, it being focused on Mario was expected and obvious so it don't confirm anything.
New S&P made by Platinum Games is too good to be true. Any new S&P is, even.

If that rumored Pilotwings is like the 3DS one but with more content, I'm going to be happy.
Anyway, E3 will be focused on Mario as Nintendo said and the booth just confirms it. This won't stop Gaf from being disappointed by something.

Not a big fan of 3D Mario (except for 3D Land and World) but I have to admit I'm starting to feel the hype. I've been watching the reveal trailer over and over again today.
I feel like this game could end up being something really special just like BOTW

NP. There isn't a great indication yet that it's true, though, and these leaks are more often wrong than not, so I would temper your expectations. Just a few days to go...!

Instead of the DK that we know, I'm expecting a photo realistic gorilla (with a red tie) making an appearance in the New Donk City level.

New Donk has lots of ads and only the already shown levels are featured and there didn't seem to be any other spots for ads, but I guess this is the same as "BotW won't have NPCs/towns" so I shouldn't be worried.
This just in, Super Mario Odyssey has literally no worlds.

But hasn't the booth just started being put up today? How would this leaker know of all the other booths mentioned in that leak from 2 days ago?

He probably knew what it was going to look like before it was going up. It's not like they decide what these booths look like while they set them up. All the planning and content is usually done in advance.

He framed the entire beginning of the leak as saying he was doing general set up work and not actually working for Nintendo. He also framed that while not everything is set up, the Odyssey set up was a lot more finished from his description and he listed several IPs as having no chance to show up despite saying that the entirety of the booths weren't finish yet and he had no way of knowing if there were more.

Never trust a Nintendo leak, if it doesn't include some wired new IP. Games like a fighter, where the characters have stretchy arms, a Mario and Rabbits strategy-combat games with guns or Kids, who are also squids, shooting with color.

My uncle said something about a game where youre a robot kangaroo stay tuned

New S&P isn't happening, as much as I'd love it too. Also I highly doubt Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be playable on the showfloor on the grounds that I'm pretty sure the most that's ever happened for them before is a trailer being played on loop at e3

For Sun and Moon there was some live gameplay and Masuda had to unveil surprise new Pokémon encountered in the wild.

Doing a full sprint to that Mario Odyssey section first thing Tuesday morning. Can't wait. I've barely given any thought as to the order I'm going to check out the other booths in.
