    It's kind of impressive how they've shown absolutely nothing of Smash, yet it's apparently completely ready to go for a tournament and a public demo. I do hope they have some more to show in the presentation, but it's not like last year's presentation was just Mario.

    Lets hope they announce a new Zelda game
    Just an announcement, no need to have big trailer
    But a teaser would be welcome :)

    It's a smash Bros invitational. Even if you were joking, only people invited by Nintendo directly will get to play it on stage

    I so totally expected this... even tho there are 1st party 3DS games announced/coming, it's going the way of the dodo. Unfortunate.

    I would like to see new info about Mario Kart Tour, but looking at the graphic, it seems that won't be the case.
    Also, RIP 3DS annoumcements :( though there may be more in the future, just not in E3, but in Directs.

    I don't really care about Smash so it looks like there isn't going to be much reason to watch it. The last Smash game was so wildly boring in comparison to Melee and Brawl.

    Wow. I think the complete opposite. Melee was too technical and was to hard to get into, and brawl's gameplay was flat out dull

    My own opinion. What I hope for in this new Smash is more focus on beloved Nintendo franchises and doing interesting things with the combat system. Just a standard brawl mode is ok if you have friends to play with 24/7, but otherwise the game collects dust. I feel the additional modes, exciting maps, and collecting strengthens the game.

    Melee had an amazing announcer, trophy collection, and lots of odd minigames with it that made it super entertaining. It expanded the game from n64. Brawl took it a step further with the cinematic story mode (super fun), stickers, assists, and game demos.

    SSB4 had zero charm. The interface was poorly designed as if it was made in MS Paint (even though it was apparently designed by the same person since melee?), the announcer sounded weird (or maybe Mobus just isn't as ridiculous as the Melee guy), the amiibos contributed absolutely nothing of value, I don't care for omega maps at all, the maps weren't exciting, the split of zelda removed what was interesting about her (something something "engine limitations"), and character removals only to reimplement them felt like the developers don't understand what people want.

    What was once a celebration of Nintendo, now tries to include any popular video game character like Sonic and Pacman (seriously, wat?). Too many sword Fire Emblem characters (surprised Ephraim wasn't chosen!). This iteration felt completely sloppy and misguided.

    Fed up of waiting for even the smallest animal crossing announcement. Looks like they won't announce it.

    Their E3 booth will also have a demo playable. It'll also probably be the most ridiculous lineup there, which is what I was referencing. Derp?

    I was thinking Autumn anyway, but yeah that makes sense. Even if it is the case, nothing to whine about for $20/year.

    So is it confirmed Smash is a new title and not a port?I keep thinking they are trolling with that trailer and its just a port with new characters. :unsure:
