I really want another proper Legend of Zelda game, after TotK; if they announce a third goddamn open-world game that doesn't respect the series whatsoever, outside of an ugly skin, I'm not gonna be happy.

Other than that...a new console would be surprising, but kinda needed now. Or, I dunno, new F-Zero game? Info on the next Xenoblade game? Or, since it's an annualised franchise now when it really should be two years, Pokémon - I wouldn't be surprised if we get at least the name of this November's entry. Kirby, perhaps.

Kid Icarus would be cool, too.

I'm still hoping they will add dungeons to TotK.
