  1. I hope my body is ready for this!
    I must say, it will be tough to wait a week. Smash Bros. 5, maybe Metroid Prime 4 and Star Fox Grand Prix, hopefully Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Pikmin 4. And I’m even excited to see what is coming out on the 3DS! Hopefully Nintendo has some big announcements.
    And finally, I’m really hopeful for “and you can download a demo of Smash Bros right after this Presentation!”

    1. You listed off my exact guesses for e3 this year!! I really want a Luigi’s mansion 3 and Pikmin 4! And an animal crossing that allows couch co-op.

      Luigi’s mansion is the one I want most though!

      1. Speaking of Luigi’s Mansion 3 (which I want it to be in E3), I think they will reveal a new 2D Mario game and if they give it the Breath of the Wild treatment, we will have the best 2D Mario game ever created. Imagine having levels where you can go to either right for the classic goal or left to reach a new goal and then discover that you can go up for a secret goal and then find out that there’s a way to go down to find a second secret goal! That would be epic!

      2. True, after all World was one of the best Super Mario games. The last three New Super Mario Bros games have been a disappointment in my opinion.

    2. A Pikmin 4 release date would definitely be nice. It’s been a long time coming. Maybe if the Wii U wasn’t such a failure, we would have gotten Pikmin 4 a lot sooner but it’s clear they shifted it to be a Switch game since Miyamoto at one point said it was very close to being finished & that was about 2-3 years ago if memory serves me right.

  2. E3 is gonna be jam packed for me. Expanding my video game interest beyond Nintendo & Sony will be both a gift & a curse when the games start piling up once I have a better computer for Steam & an Xbox One S. Only way I’m getting the X is if I see it being sold for a damn good deal or if I by some chance win a free one. First thing first, though. Gotta get a new Switch. lol
