E3 2014 Hype: Nintendo


As I’ve mentioned in a previous news article, Nintendo is once again taking a different approach to E3 this year and will not be taking part in the traditional glitz and glamour of a massive conference.

While that decision is a little disappointing, Nintendo seems to have something about them that can excite people and get people breaking forums across the Internet from the smallest of slice of news.

With that we fully expect them to have people aboard the hype train and no doubt disappoint people again after the dust settles.

Here i’ll compile a list of predictions, dead certs and fantasy ideas.

Dead Certs:

* Bayonetta 2 Trailer & Release date
* X Trailer and information
* Hyrule Warriors information & date
* Smash Bros 3DS & Wii U footage & additional character reveals
* Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire remakes footage
* Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem Trailer & Information


* Legend of Zelda: Wii U revealed
* Bayonetta 1 Port confirmed for Wii U
* Nintendo HD remakes revealed for Wii U (Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Pikmin 1 & 2)
* Majora’s Mask 3DS confirmed
* Retro reveal next game
* Mario Kart 8 Tracks via DLC
* Hint of the QOL format that Nintendo are working on
* Pokemon title for Wii U (along the lines of battle revolution)


* Retro reveals next game turns out to be Metroid game for Wii U
* A Metroid game is also revealed for 3DS
* F Zero U is revealed
* Star Fox Universe is revealed
* Animal Crossing Wii U revealed
* Advance Wars 3DS
* Miyamoto new IP revealed

I also think that the title revealed in a Nintendo Direct way over a year ago “Yoshi Yarn” will not feature. I just have a feeling it’s been canned. Or maybe perhaps canned from Wii U anyway and pushed towards 3DS.

Perhaps too much wishful thinking there in the fantasy section, but at this point with apparent bridges burned with 3rd party support, It’s looking likely that only Nintendo will be spitting out quality games for the Wii U this year. So they really need to hit the ground running this e3 with big game announcements for the Nintendo faithful that took the dive and picked up a Wii U. At this point it seems certain only die hard Nintendo fans have gone and picked up the Wii U, so please reward us for our faith Nintendo.


I’m on board the hype train
