    You missed Warioware Touched! 2!
    Trying not to get my hopes up, but I think NoA's event will have titles like Fire Emblem DS, Captain Rainbow?, GTA Chinatown, DSi announcement etc. Hoping for something new though.

    Honestly, that Picross 3D I saw on the video looked fantabulous.

    Too bad the 3D engine of the DSi wasn't revamped. Sometimes, bigger screens ain't enough.
    Wonder when it'll get released at other places other than Japan.

    Some nice games there. Looking forward to Trace Memory and Mario & Luigi 3.

    Edit: Damn, just realized still no Kid Icarus or 2D-Matroid [​IMG]

    Wow, that is what I expected to see on the E3 showfloor. Way to go Nintendo. Some great games announced....

    I`m most excited for Trace Memory and Sin&Punishment2 (come on SEGA... I would be satisfied with an Orta-port [​IMG])

    Mario & Luigi 3
    3D Picross
    Warioware Touched! 2 (apparently you can create your own mini games!)
    Taiko no Tatsujin
    Sin & Punishment 2
    Punch-Out Wii

    Pleased that they're relaunching Cube games, though I have most of the good ones now, at least others game may get the recognition they deserve.

    Am I correct in assuming the DSI is not a totally new system and that all of these games will work on the Lite?

    Offtopic: as of this post, I am the devil. [​IMG] (look at post count)

    Yeah just a revision, every game should still work on Phat/Lite.

    Well ok maybe not the DSiWare or whatever they call it, I'm sure hackers will be able to do something for those without DSi, unless Nintendo release some hardware for old DS owners but then that would take away my only reason to get a DSi.

    New games that are coming to DS will be great....I wonder how much will this DS redesign, actually expand life of a DS...

    And 3D Picross looks so great....but it'll probably be a hard game...
    And let's hope that they don't mess up Mario & Luigi 3..

    Punch Out Wii, Sin and Punishment 2, Let's Tap (I guess this is the game that a penguin can play), Mario & Luigi 3, 3D Picross, Warioware Touched! 2...

    And they finally decided to go with the Gamecube Classic idea that they played around with ages ago starting with Pikmin.

    Re-releasing GCN games for Wii?
    So will they work with the wii-remote + nunchuck?

    Because there are several GCN games I would kill for with wii controls, plus the GCN's controller cable is retardedly short- doesn't even reach my couch


    btw, let me pick my face up off the floor because Another Code for the Wii just rocked it off

    Punch Out Wii!! Looks cool, but im worried about the controls... can make the game really awful... Motion Plus? And Trace Memory looks really good (visualy atleast), and FUCK YEAH! S&P2.
