Drop the bomb, Iwata!

June 11th marks the first E3 show for Nintendo that doesn't come from the stage of an LA theatre. Instead, at 7am PST / 3pm BST / 11pm Japan time, a new Nintendo Direct will be livestreamed to the world and while there may not be fireworks (or attempted fireworks), there will also be no charts, no PR waffle, just games.


Think you know what Nintendo has in store for the Wii U's most important holiday season? Will the 3DS continue to have 'So Many Games'? Will there be megatons?

It's prediction time!

-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-



To Play:
======

Here are four sets of statements. Simply pick whichever ones you think will come true. (choose as many as you like eg. A01, A03, A13, B02, B03, C5... etc.).

But choose wisely! These predictions are increasingly valuable and increasingly unlikely. Correct picks win you points, incorrect picks lose you points. Will you manage to score more than zero this year? Last year's winner was Smerd with a perhaps unassailable 14 points.


Please post your predictions by the end of June 10th.


No editing.


We will gray out any statements that are officially confirmed in advance of the main ND and you won't be able to pick them after that, so it might help to get your guesses in early!


For the purposes of this challenge, all information that comes out during the course of E3 will be taken into account. That includes the Japan, NOA and NOE directs, press meetings, interviews, online news, and additional Nintendo Directs.

I just read "everything you pick MUST be announced".
*sigh*

Is there a wooden spoon for the worst score? Right here. Me.

@Mr_M, as always we wait until E3 has finished to tally the scores, because more info often comes out of interviews and online media


Posted by 
 on: 06/12/13, 01:07:05
Man, I every year I try to be reasonable, and every year I pick way, way too many things.


Posted by 
 on: 06/12/13, 01:07:56
If my calculation is correct, I'm sitting at 20 points right now. I thought a new Yoshi Yarn trailer would be shown, and I got that wrong, but everything else is correct so far!

I'll have a perfect set of predictions if a NFC game pops up. Even without I'm at +18. :3

@canonj Wonderful. I might be second place third year running. !@#%^

If we get a Yoshi's Epic Yarn trailer, all of my predictions will have been true.


Posted by 
 on: 06/12/13, 01:45:05
That puts secret at 20 too. Obviously I can't get something besides second even with two people beating me.

@Secret_Tunnel

BUT..did you get all of the predictions?


Posted by 
 on: 06/12/13, 01:50:14
Sigh. For the first time I made a positive points total.

Then my wishful thinking for Metroid in the bonus sent me crashing back down to familiar negative territory. Doh.


Posted by 
 on: 06/12/13, 01:50:19
I counted up my total earlier today... I had either 24 or 26 points, I forget which. But even still, infinitywave had me beat... Darn you Infinitywave!!
