The Electronic Entertainment Expo is less than two weeks away, and as such, gamers all around the world are preparing for the big unveil of some of their favorite franchises and announcements by their favorite developers. However, Nintendo has decided to take a different approach. They will be revealing all of their games through the use of a E3 dedicated Nintendo Direct. Because of this, Nintendo will be able to spend more of their E3 panel getting the announced games in the hands of the consumers.
These are a few games that I hope to be announced at this upcoming Nintendo Direct.
The Next Super Smash Bros
Considered one of the best fighting games by many, Super Smash Bros 4 was said to be in development after last year’s lackluster E3. Despite this announcement, we have yet to receive any images or information regarding the game. It will, if history repeats itself, most likely feature more characters, improved graphics, and many new collectibles.
The probability of this game being featured is high do to the fact that we know of its existence.
A Pokemon Game For The Wii U
A few months ago Nintendo announced Pokemon X and Y for the 3DS. These games are unique in that they will be the first in the series to be fully 3d. Like every announcement of a Pokemon game, it has lead to some speculation to the announcement of a Wii U version. However due to the now 3d nature of the series, The likelihood of a console version is a little bit more plausible. After all, there is still Z.
This announcement is rather unlikely do to it simply being a theory.
A New Zelda
Being announced along side the Wind Waker HD edition. The Next Legend of Zelda is said to most likely release some time in 2014-2015. As such, now is the perfect time to finally unveil it to the gamer masses. It would be unlikely that a playable build will be running at E3. However, It would still be nice to finally get a glimpse of the game that so many are waiting for.
Due to the number of Legend of Zelda announcements over the last few months. The liklyhood of its unveil is abit more likely.
Mario Kart is one of the most well known racing games among both casual and core gamers alike. Now would be the best time to unveil it. Many of the series’ fans have refrained from purchasing a Wii U on accords to the absence of Mario Kart. Like the previous games in the series, the next Mario Kart will most likely feature a larger library of characters, levels, and items
Despite the desire of the fans for its unveiling, there has not been much of any information about the game. As such the possibility its announcement may be low.
The Return of Metroid
With the potential that the Wii U Gamepad could offer, a new Metroid game may turn out to be just what the Wii U needs to get back on track. Considering the considerably different style of Metroid compared to the other Nintendo IPs, a new game would be a nice relief from the cartoonish, child-friendly styles that Nintendo are known for.
With any luck a Metroid title will be unveiled at the E3 Direct.
