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.

That's all for me this year. I'm tempted to do a bonus prediction, but I don't think I can take a -50 hit if I guess wrong, and I've been pretty good about ending up in the positive score range for the past two or three years.

We lose points if we do a bonus prediction and get it wrong, correct?

I think Non-Specific Action Figure's improbable return is going to be a "bananas at the superbowl" moment. Gah, I can't risk it.

Yes, it's a big risk. Even bigger if you parlay and pick two or three.
