As I said in the Smash Bros thread, I'm just hoping for a release date.

COMMENCE BASELESS PREDICTIONS!

- Yoshi reveal, he'll be heavily revamped the way Bowser appears to be.

- One newcomer revealed, a special one like a third-party character or one with an interesting or complex play style like Rosalina.

- Walkthrough of a complex, moving stage.

-Online play details! Miiverse integration and examples of screenshot posts.

- Explanation of the vague "customization" elements previously mentioned regarding the handheld version.

- Short look at the new Arcade mode.

- No release date, "we need more time than we expected but are hoping to launch by the end of the year."

I think there will be a Smash version of Mario Kart T.V. for replays via Miiverse.

We are definitely gonna get a few character reveals, I'm excited! I doubt we will get an official title for the games, though. Secretly hoping for some information about Wii U - 3DS connectivity.

Awesome. Ballsy to do this AFTER the Mario Kart blowout.

How do they top that?

I love that Nintendo's keeping themselves busy like this, with Donkey Kong, the GBA Virtual Console, the Mario Kart 8 info and Smash Bros. I hope they'll manage to keep this pace up for the rest of the year.

Also: Doshin reveal for Smash!



Not the evil red Jashin, but the peaceful, yellow love giant! That'd be something!

Captain Falcon skin for every character in the game. Current voice "acting" for characters is applied to all Captain Falcon sayings. All stages have been reworked to be Big Blue from F-Zero, music is changed to Big Blue being played by the instruments in the original composition (Ocarina performs Big Blue in Zelda themed Big Blue).

Big Blue is officially changed to safe word for Captain Falcon bondage.

Iwata dresses up like Captain Falcon and is revealed as final smash for Captain Falcon. As the game is of Nintendo property, the entire screen sinks into a red pit with him saying he will not step down.

Samus is retconned to be Captain Falcon after final smash has taken away his memories.

Oh man, waking up to this news was the best. I can't imagine anything Nintendo could announce that'd hype me more, actually (within reason, anyway). ALL ABOOOOARD

@missypissy

Haha, nice.

A whole Direct on Smash is pretty exciting... here's hoping the character reveal is really big and surprising. Come on, Belmont!

Should be pretty good.

For serious, the character I want to see the most is Ness. The lack of Mother love so far is killing me.

Ditto? He'd probably be too similar to Kirby.

Nintendo desperately needs Wii U enthusiasm to start building. MK8 looks pretty amazing. If the new Smash Bros. is equally amazing, then they might have something.

And then at E3, show off Zelda Wii U. A trailer. Something.
