    1. i… think it means the central time of united states… take a map and see the times each zone has its own time for example: in LA is 2 hours less than in miami… ( sorry i hope you understand XD bad english)

  1. I’m intrested in seeing more Wii U details and third party support for the 3DS. Not to mention a release date for Paper Mario 3DS and Pikmin 3DS.

      1. well its me ofcourse

        itll be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        maybe they will give new features and maybe show mario and link showing them off!

  2. Yay! Time for another late-night E3 stream!
    I’ll get some snacks and it’ll be just like a movie! If a movie sporadically paused and skipped over large sections!
    Or I could just watch it on Youtube on the sixth…

  3. June 5th is fine by me. What I truly love to see at Nintendo’s conference is the Wii U and their lineup of games… especially game developers like Epic Games and Gearbox.

  4. I wish to see Fire Emblem 3DS North America Release Date

    And some Teaser or Trailer Whatever of New Smash bros

    Thats it nuff.

  5. The new Nintendo Network. It’ll make or break the system to most people. Honestly, I would buy Wii U even without online… but it’d have to be cheaper and most people wouldn’t Nintendo needs a huge win with Wii U.
    Of course, I want to hear about the new Zeldas, Retro’s project, and some new controls for Wii U.

      1. Sorry, but I hope most for another Metroid. It’s a good way to bring online multiplayer into a Nintendo title.
        I do remember DK 64 had that splitscreen though, lol

  6. theonewhowrotethis

    Maybe a Metroid game (as well as the other stuff mentioned up above)….

    Or a Fire Emblem Awakening US Release….

    Or some Smash 4 mentioning….

    Or Wii U details….

    Or a Youtube app….

    One could hope….

    1. More Wii U games will be show and lots more about the Wii U but however price and release date won’t be shown for Wii U at E3 12.

  7. While I’m all for seeing the continuing evolution of Nintendo’s classic franchises, I would like to see more to indicate that Nintendo is genuinely courting decent third-party developers. I don’t think they can survive much longer solely on fan enthusiasm for new versions of classic titles.

  9. There’s not a chance in Hell. But if they said ANYTHING about a port for MOTHER 3 in English, I could rest peacefully.

  10. Just as expected.

    Also, I think we might see Smash Bros. Think about it, the Project Sora announcement came in 2009, Kid Icarus was reveal in 2010 but didn’t got released until this year. That was an awful lot of time for a single game. KI did have a lot of content, but still. And what if they had Hall Laboratories start work on Smash based on a design they had already been placed. I know that Sakurai said that he had started work on it this year, but that doesn’t mean the game wasn’t in full development just yet.

  12. Pikmin 3. Though that is just what is at the top of the totem poll for what my body is ready to expect from their conference. Other games that are under Pikmin 3 on my Nintendo E3 2012 totem poll include: Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, Super Smash Bros Vs. Capcom, Majora’s Mask 3D, New Super Mario Bros Mii, New Super Mario Bros 2, Luigi’s Mansion 2, MOTHER 3 on Virtual Console for 3DS, Pandora’s Tower, New Play Control Pikmin 2, Wii U Sports, other Wii U launch games, Pokemon Conquest, Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles, and other joys Nintendo is going to steal the show with this year too.

  13. in order of interest i’m looking forward to:
    1: Pikmin 3 with a possible demonstration
    2: the announcement about a new character franchise for Nintendo
    3: Luigi’s mansion 2 in depth coverage
    4: the next metroid installment “crossed fingers on that one”
    5: monster hunter tri G U.S. release date possibly
    6: a look at the wii U’s list of confirmed launch titles
    7: Dragon Quest X trailers an footage

  14. Definitely looking forward to Nintendo’s participation in E3 and discussion of games such as Zelda, Mario Party, and possibly even a Chrono Trigger or Breath of Fire! Oh how I would love to play CT on the Wii U.

  15. Eternal Darkness 2 for Wii U would make me shit my pants, but I’m not gonna hold my breath. Another Other M style Metroid game would make me VERY happy.

  17. A Wii U / 3DS sequel to The World Ends With You, a release date for FF Versus XIII, Wii U info/demos and whatever else Sony and Microsoft have to say. Nintendo may easily steal the show again though.

  18. Looks like I’m going to have to allow myself a day off. Nintendo will have my undivided attention. That will be the day the A bomb drops.

    Leave luck to heaven.

        1. 9am isn’t that early ;)

          Just their workday in the morning. Can’t wait to stream it online! I had the opportunity to go, but I couldn’t afford it this year. Look to be going next year!

  19. 5PM is where it’s starting at where I am! =D

    Same as last year! It was on 9AM in LA.

    5PM is a perfect time so I can do what I want in the day and return in anticipation :)

  20. Etecoons and Dachoras

    I’m a bit concerned about their conference being only an hour long. Hopefully they’ll focus more on Wii U instead of 3DS. However, knowing they won’t announce price and launch date this E3 helps a ton, so hopefully they just focus on games and maybe some surprises about Wii U’s capabilities, like two camers for the DRC, one front facing and one back facing.

    For 3DS, I’d like to see these games announced:

    Golden Sun 3DS
    The World Ends With You 3DS
    Professor Layton 3DS localization
    Ace Attorney 5 3DS
    Trauma Center 3DS
    Castlevania 3DS
    Elite Beat Agents 3DS/Ouendan 3DS
    Zelda 3DS
    Metroid 3DS
    Dragon Quest VII 3DS remake
    Final Fantasy VI 3DS remake
    Radiant Historia II 3DS
    Mortal Kombat 3DS
    Street Fighter X Tekken 3DS

  21. I’d like to see Wii U versions of: Borderlands 2, Far Cry 3, GTAV and BioShock Infinite. Make Wii U versions of those games and I will buy the Wii U in the first day!

    1. Enjoy your 720p inferior versions with inferior controls, while we Nintendo gamers will enjoy the superior versions with 1080p, 60fps and superior controls.

  22. Nintendo e3 coverage:animal crossing,lugi mansion,pokemon black 2 and wii u xbox ported games wow how intresting…NOT! Damn why ya repeat games ya all ready covered whatever am sure the kids will be surprise they the same idiots who dont know bou pcs

    1. At first I thought this site needed some comic relief..but you need new material, kid. Hahaha BOOOOO. anyways what are YOU most excited to see at nintendo’s conference?

  23. ^this nintendo sucks and i already heard about the wii u it shouldnt been out but whatevas ill act surprise. Take notes from xbox each year we cover new NeW games not games we shown last year smh wow you guys suck. Durango destroy them miyamoto cry broke

    1. hahaa xbox e3 was a joke last year! WITH KINNECT! seriously grow up watch the video on youtube to remind you how bad it was… disney kinect games!

  24. Here’s my predictions for E3 2012 Nintendo Press Conference:

    -Miyamoto will show up first, and talk about 4 games, Luigi’s Mansion 2, Pikmin 3, the new Mario game for Wii U, and the new IP.
    -Reggie will appear after that, to talk about some final Wii games, like Epic Mickey 2, The Last Story, and also confirms that Pandora’s Tower will come to North America. He’ll also talk about 3DS games like Fire Emblem: Awakening, Paper Mario, Animal Crossing, New Super Mario Bros. 2, and some surprises. He’ll also show a video made by third parties to show their own games, like Heroes of Ruin, Theathrythm Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, and Monster Hunter Tri 3G.
    -Iwata will show up last, and give some final details about the Wii U. He’ll reveal the launch games confirmed so far, like Miyamoto’s games, and as well as third-party outings like Darksiders II and Ninja Gaiden III: Razor’s Edge. He’ll end the press conference with a teaser for Super Smash Bros. 4.

    This is my prediction.

    1. I’m guessing it will have a Kirby themed opening, as they had a Zelda themed one last year. My prediction:

      After Kirby Opening,
      – coverage of Wii U (final specs, launch titles, launch window titles, info of controller)
      – 3DS coverage (probably pretty close to your list of games, with those unannounced titles included.
      – Any new IPs/characters not mentioned above.

  25. Yeah…. it’s gonna be so much more than everyonne is expecting. Whenever Nintendo is this quiet, E3 bombs are always nuclear. I have medium/ high hopes for this years show. It’s going to be awesome. So, let the trolls troll, let the haters hate, and let the analysts analyze, because I believe that Nnintendo is going to revolutionize the way we play. Oh, I just can’t wait for E3!!!!

        1. This year is all Nintendo. I’ll watch all the conferences as usual, but I don’t think Sony and MS have any way to compete with Nintendo this year.

          1. Nintendo has owned e3 the past 2 years. Making it 3 in a row is going to make them look awesome!

            1. That’s right. Going for the hat trick. Nintendo can’t be touched this year. I dying of anticipation here. What will the Wii u bring to the table? I really think it’s going to change the way we play games on a console forever.

  26. People hoping for SSB4 news or a trailer need to realize the game literally went into development the week after Kid Icarus was released. They’re probably still just planning it.

    As for what I’m hoping to see, I just want more WiiU.


  28. This is a year of Nintendo. Last year they had many great announcements such as (I’ll just list what came out since it’s hard to have an opinion on what isn’t out yet):

    LoZ:OoT 3D – great
    Star Fox 64 3D- very good
    LoZ:SS – awesome
    Kirby’s Return to Dreamland- awesome
    Mario Kart 7- awesome
    Super Mario 3D Land- great
    Kid Icarus Uprising- HA-MAZIIIING! (ingame reference) aka awesome

    Then there were the Wii U tech demos, which looked great. The Zelda demo still amazes me. Now this year, with more information about the Wii U and with the current success of the 3DS (especially compared to last summer), Nintendo is bound to show up and blow up (in a good way) once again! It’s already known that between E3 and the end of the year we’ll have the releases of Pokémon Black/White 2, Paper Mario, Luigi’s Mansion 2, New Super Mario Bros. 2, and Pikmin 3 among whatever other Wii U launch titles there will be.

    Sony’s probably going to announce a few games, but their biggest announcement will be a Vita price cut. If it doesn’t happen, I fear on-stage lynchings may occur, or at the very least Sony will be pretty much overshadowed by Nintendo and perhaps Microsoft if they announce their new console.

    Speaking of Microsoft’s new console, I can’t remember if they’re announcing the Durango/XBox720 or if they said they weren’t going to. If they do, they’ll get a good bit of attention as one would expect and if not, it’ll probably mostly involve maybe some more footage or information of Halo 4 and a few other games and perhaps more ramblings about the Kinect. So without the Durango/XBox720, Microsoft’s conference will probably be as much in the background as it was last year.

  29. well its me ofcourse

    I Think it will all go like this

    first sakurai comes and shows of the kirby anivversary games and maybe some coulor for the original and he says he has a secret later on

    then miyamoto comes and shows off all the new games coming this year and some new games for wii u and the new IP

    iwata and shows lots of stuff and the 3rd party wii u titles

    then sakurai comes back and shows of SSB4
