I'll keep my usual crap-colored glasses on and expect them to say very little beyond the recent list of quarter 1 release list. It's easier to deal with the pain! Having said that, I'd be so much happier to be wrong. Please, prove me wrong!

That pretty much sums up my feelings right now. I'll be happy if I'm pleasantly surprised, but at the moment my expectations are very low.

NEW new games? Awesome!

I'm not expecting anything major but it'll be neat to see whatever Nintendo has for us. Hopefully something on the eShop side too.

So is the NOA one first or will we know what happened in the Japanese and European ones ahead of time?

I believe those are all the same time.

@DeputyVanHalen Which is potentially even more exciting. It could mean big news. But I've been on this roller coaster before, so I'd better simmer down!

Well I'm conflicted. We presumably know Nintendo's first half of the year schedule and I'd be shocked if they announced anything huge coming in the second half or later before E3. At this point, what I'd actually like to see most is more confirmation that the big third parties are taking the Wii U seriously with games that aren't only on the eShop.

oh yay, what good news to return home too. It will probably give me an idea for a miiverse pic to do tomorrow too.

edit: naruto spoiler: And Juubi/Obito/Madara are going to get served too.

I hope we get some new footage of some upcoming games like Lego City, Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta too.

Perhaps the rumored Yoshi's Island game will make an appearance, developed by Good Feel.

Nintendo isn't exactly on my good graces (they haven't been for the better part of two years now). They will have to dig deep before I start giving a crap again.

Hopefully it's actual new stuff and not just confirmations of stuff we know about like Pikmin 3 or whatever else. Give me a reason to buy a Wii U Nintendo!

big reveals for me would be:

new Yoshi Island game
new mario kart
Mario Galaxy 3
Wii U Virtual console
lttp remake eshop exclusive
maybe a 4 swords online Zelda game
Retro's game
trailer for Smash bros (yea right)

I'd be happy with just the announcement for Retro's game.

If he said NEW games then I think he means NEW games. Guessing RE:R will make an appearance though, possibly highlighting platform exclusive features.

I just want ONE good game reveal we know nothing about. That's not a lot to ask for is it?? Something like the rumored Yoshi game would go a loooooong way for me. ONE. GAME. C'MON.

Confirmations of other games would be awesome too. But...that's probably asking for too much.

I really hope this is their beginning of ramping shit up for Wii U though. Seems like their last several systems have done this exact same thing.

Oh boy, I'm excited. Nothing can get me hyped more than upcoming Nintendo news. The Wii U Virtual Console and/or one new game announcement would be enough for me.
