    The world that never was
    Again, this is NOT just a rumour compilation thread, it's also a thread for you to speculate and discuss the latest Nintendo E3 news. So feel free not to read the rumours if you don't want to and just speculate to your heart content.

    It's this crazy time of the year! E3 is just upon us!​

    With E3 coming, the internet is, as usual, going crazy with speculation and rumours, but us fans are almost always confused on what to believe, but the beauty of confusion is speculation. So, here in this thread, I will post all rumours since we're very close to E3 and the Tempers can go all wild on speculation and voice out what you think is true and what's unlikely. But wait a second there, pal, it's not for ONLY talking about the rumours, no, you can speculate on whatever you desire. And after every E3 Nintendo Direct (supposing there are several) you can share your thoughts here. In other words, it's an all in one Nintendo E3 discussion thread.

    Confirmed:
    • Nintendo Direct on the first day of E3 (June 11th)
    • Nintendo showing Mario Kart, 3D Mario and Super Smash Bros.
    • Retro's project will be revealed soon (aka in E3)
    • Pokemon 90 minutes presentation on the first day of E3

    The world that never was
    (PLACE HOLDER. This post will be dedicated for actual Nintendo E3 news.)
    Thanks to KingVamp for suggesting this awesome hype video ^_^

    Countdown to E3/(first) E3 Nintendo Direct​
    [​IMG]
    HYPING IT UP WITH A COUNTDOWN! 8D​



    Just so if you missed the time of the Nintendo Direct above, here they are:
    3pm UK time
    4pm European Central time
    10am Eastern
    7am Pacific

    NA stream link:
    http://e3.nintendo.com/

    European stream link:
    http://www.ustream.tv/NintendoUK


    NOTE:
    1) I did not make a Sony or Microsoft threads because I don't follow their news that much, so it's not fair that way towards respective fans. If someone would make similar threads other than me, it would be great.
    2) I didn't know where to put this as it belongs to both he 3DS and Wii U sections at the same time so I posted it here. If it's the wrong section, forgive me. If any mod feels it belong elsewhere, feel free to move it.

    The world that never was
    What I hope they talk about in the Wii U Direct:
    3D Mario (confirmed)
    Yarn Yoshi
    SSB4 (confirmed)
    Bayonetta 2
    Wonderful 101
    Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem
    Mario Kart 8 (confirmed)
    Pikmin 3
    Wind Waker HD
    Soic Lost World
    A new Pokemon game similar to Colosseum or XD Gale of Darkness
    Retro's project (whether new IP, Metroid, Star Fox or F-Zero) (confirmed)
    Miyamato's new IP
    GameCube VC
    Summer system update
    GBA VC
    Monolith Soft's X

    What do you think/hope they talk about? I actually placed a net with my brother with this list XD I get a point for each correct one and so does he then we compare it by the end of E3. Quite fun for family bragging rights XD

    Interesting talk about the achievement system, it's been long overdue.
    Here's hoping if they do implement one, older 3DS games will be supported as well.

    That's true, but it can improved upon. Like maybe unify 3DS and Wii U accounts?
    EDIT: :ph34r:

    I'm personally glad there are no achievements. I'm tired of everyone always making a big stink about it. Hell, on the PS3, I just play the game now and unlock achievements along the way without trying to do anything.

    The press release said they'd have my state, but now it's not on there...retarded wankers.

    If they want more people to come to these promo events, they need to add locations not remove. There are thousands and thousands of Nintendo fans in my state. Dicks. :angry:

    Rhythm Heaven Fever came out last year. Why would they make another one so soon?

    Those are all rumours and none of them have credibility, so hold on, you might just get what you wish for XD (albeit unlikely >.<)

    The news was just barely released, it hasn't even been finalized yet, so I guess I'll wait :huh:

    Personally, I just want to see more of the Wii Vitality sensor.

    Come on, Nintendo, it's been years since you showed it last. What's the big hold up?
