    it seems nintendo will be releasing a big game for christmas here is the quote from the omn website:

    Mario Kart and Smash Bros. are two of this year's biggest games but Nintendo is set to make another 'fantastic announcement' at this year's E3 games show which will be hld in LA this July.

    Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo's US President, has told GameTrailers TV that "There's going to be big game for the holiday that every gamer will want"

    He refused to elaborate further, simply saying "All I can tell you is what we announce during E3 is gonna be fantastic. The gamer is gonna be excited and the expanded audience is gonna be excited."

    In the same interview, Fils Aime talked of "maximising all of our key franchises," so does that mean that an old favourite is set to return?​



    what do you guys reckon?

    I really hope it will be for DS since I play it more often than nearly anything DS ftw ^^.

    Or even better, for BOTH DS and wii ?

    Ah and... where can we find that interview ?

    It will be Animal Crossing, I can think of many many other games I'd rather have but that will be the one that comes out.

    I don't think they'll have much for the DS to be honest as it is doing too well, when sales for that drops then they'll maybe pull out some more big guns for that.

    Wasn't this mentioned weeks ago though?

    EDIT: Of course saying that would Animal Crossing be a game that "every gamer wants"?

    That sounds like a Smash bro could take until the DS's lifespans end... even though reggie stated that the DS was made for infinity.

    As long as they improve Animal Crossing, i'm all for it, Make it better than the DS version.
    This should be Nintendo's chance to improve Online play.

    but i have a hunch that it is going to be a complete surprise, something new

    Reckon you lot are right, it's got to be Animal Crossing. Hits the "expanded audience", and if the game's as big as they're making out then there's no way they could've kept a lid on it to be a title that no-one's heard of. They also cited Mario Kart as being a sucess of "this year", so they must be talking about the Wii, looks like the DS doesn't get a mention.

    Biggest Nintendo franchises imo are Mario, Zelda, Smash Bros and Pokemon.. those are the ones that sell more.. aside from stuff like Wiifit and Brain training of course, but Reggie said it would be something for gamers.. all those already have Wii games and I don't think Nintendo will make another one so soon..

    We all know that Animal Crossing is coming out.. but I don't think that Animal Crossing is something that "every gamer will want" like he stated.. of course, he's probably just hyping it [​IMG]

    I hope for a new Star Fox and/or FZero..

    Might be the new Kingdom Hearts game. Plans for a DS version are in the works, and there were rumors circulating where a wii version may be made. God, Kingdom Hearts would be so awsome on the wii

    God please let Nintendo make Animal Crossing into an MMO.But if they do but there going to have it so toned down on the communications/online part that it won't be much fun.

    a list of N franchises

    Animal Crossing
    Donkey Kong
    EarthBound
    F-Zero series
    Fire Emblem
    Kid Icarus
    Kirby
    The Legend of Zelda series
    Mario
    Metroid
    Nintendo Wars
    Pokémon
    Puzzle League games
    Star Fox
    Super Smash Bros.
    Wario games
    Yoshi games

    I probably thinks its going to be Animal Crossing, but i would much rather a new Donkey Kong 64 or Yoshi 64. Maybe after the release of Pit in smash bros we might even see a new Kid Icarus or with the amount of kirby characters we might see a new Kirby game.

    didn't they say a while ago that they were thinking of making a second zelda for the wii, it may be that, i mean 64 had 2 and so did gc, wii is bound to have at least two
