Sunday probably will be the best day, unless Nintendo pull out something really huge (likely they will not).

Anyway, It will be fun to see every streamer that I follow on twitch broadcasting the same video at the same time :P

Nintendo will just show one new game that will never see the light anytime soon, and the rest are just ports and everyone will go "yaaaaaay Nintendo".

Depends on the "one new game" and "just ports" they announce - if it's Twilight Princess HD or The Wind Waker HD or Majora's Mask 3D getting ported, that'd be brilliant. If it's, I dunno, Pikmin 1 and/or 2, then I'd be...more cautious? Less interested?

If the "one new game" is Oracle of Ages/Seasons remake, that'd be awesome too - if it's Odyssey 2 or progress on BotW2, not nearly as much.

That's the problem, I already played those games and I'm sick of ports, where is Bayonetta 3 and Metroid 4, not to mention BoTW2, they are busy firing law cases i guess.

Word is there might be an XCOM-style Marvel game revealed. I'd be happy about that, certainly can't turn out worse than the Avengers game.
Depends on the character roster - hopefully they won't put nobodies like Miss Marvel and Kate Bishop (literally who?) in before Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Captain Strange, the Fantastic 4, the X-Men, etc.

BotW2 would only be interesting if they get rid of the stupid equipment-fragility and limited-stamina mechanics, and make Hyrule less of a desolate wasteland - make it more lived-in and homely, instead of Fallout-y.

With an XCOM-style game I'd think it'd be possible to put in every single well-known character and a bunch of the lesser-knowns too. What would be really cool is if there are two separate campaigns to play as either the heroes or the villains. Depends on how much effort they put into it, I suppose.

I'm gonna assume you mean Metroid Prime 4; Metroid 4 is Fusion lol. I wouldn't mind a Fusion sequel or remake to be honest, though.
