I can’t post in a Nintendo thread without uttering something something MPT somewhere.

I’m broken and Nintendo knows it.

So King Zell said 3D Zelda 2020. I'm sure that's the internal goal atm, until they're confident it doesn't need to be delayed to 2021.

After the Sabi shit, and smash fans getting ready to pounce Shinobi after losing confidence in Banjo's inclusion, I'll be surprised if the resetera insiders continue to engage in discussions.

Prime Trilogy will be announced eventually. Just no reason for it now.

Prime 4 may not be ready until the Prime Series' 20th anniversary, as crazy as that sounds.

I simply have no update on MPT. That's why I answered the way I did.
That makes sense, honestly. Assuming it's real, they clearly have held it back for strategic reasons. I've been saying for a little while now that it doesn't make sense to sit on a game only to drop it in a crowded release schedule; I imagine they're waiting for either early 2020 or maybe even until they're ready to give an update on 4.

Nintendo still needs some pick up and go sports game like mario strikers, punchout, or mario golf. Also something like ssx, tony hawk, or skate would be nice.

I'd say that was a pretty dang good showcase guys. Mix of first party, third party, indies, mulitplats and exclusives

Combined with other E3 announcements prior:

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
Minecraft Dungeons
Just Dance 2020
Gods and Monsters
Elder Scrolls Blades
Final Fantasy 8 remaster

This is probably the most prominent third party showcase Nintendo has ever had in a decade
Throw in Wolfenstein Youngblood and Doom Eternal and I can’t believe how many Switch games I will buy this year alone.

From the Durect, there are three games I don’t want to play. Just three. Out of like, 20 lol.

I agree. Wave Race, 1080 and Excite need to be revived asap. And yes, Nintendo also add a skateboarding game to their extreme sports lineup. Activision and EA no longer care, so it's up to Nintendo to revive genre.

Lets wait for the September direct. The hilarious part about this E3 Direct is Nintendo only announced one new first party IP being Botw 2. They did the same last year with Mario Party.

Their general Directs they’re announcing 2-3 new first party IP’s though.

Most people will interpret that sentence as actual new IP. You mean new games, right?

I expect their September direct to be Microsoft show with Ori, Halo and potential Banjo HD ports but yes, there should be Q1 2020 first party games too. Expecting Wave Race there is not realistic thing to do but I'll wait for it anyway.

People aren't talking enough about how amazing the Link's Awakening sound track is going to be

Do we know who's handling the rearrangements? Whoever it is, I'm glad they're not shying away from having some electronic bleeps and bloops every now and then to give that Game Boy feeling .

I'm loving everything about this remake right now, and that's despite me thinking the original game being good enough not to ever need a remake in the first place. I hope tons of Zelda noobs will realize Link's Awakening's greatness thanks to this!

I mean, there's nothing to find out. Retro is making Prime 4 now, and for the last 5 years they've been doing nothing but BBQ.
Even MP4 will be called "Metroid Prime Rib."

The September Direct will definatly be the start of their 2020 marketing campaign... Just like last year's was for 2019. At this time last year, we only knew about Yoshi and Fire Emblem. I imagine we'll start seeing more Switch-games sequels, too.

September direct will most likely focus on Luigi's Mansion just like September 2017 Direct with Mario Odyssey.

September 2017 focused on four different games (4 minutes on Pokémon, 8 minutes on XBC2, 4 minutes on Octopath Traveler, 7 minutes on SMO), and had plenty of other announcements as well.
You're right! But it was marketed as Direct to get the latest news about SMO if I'm not wrong, I think we'll see something similar this year.

They used this announcement:
Nintendo said:
Tune in at midnight CEST on Thursday 14th September for nearly 45 minutes of information mainly focussed on what's heading to Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS family systems over the next few months, including new details about Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch.
This is similar to how they worded the February 2019 Direct, actually:
An all-new #NintendoDirect is almost here! Tune in at 10pm (UK time) on Wednesday, 13/02 for roughly 35 minutes of information on upcoming #NintendoSwitch titles, including new details on #FireEmblem: Three Houses.
As we know, that direct didn't have such a huge focus on Fire Emblem (5-6 minutes) and the major announcements were actually SMM2, Link's Awakening and Astral Chain (I find it a big announcement!). Luigi's Mansion is more on the level of Fire Emblem than of SMO, so I expect it to go the February 2019 route rather than the September 2017 route.

Yes, that's what I meant, a Direct to give us the final details on Luigi's Mansion plus new announcements.

Wow, Angry Joe's reaction was fucking terrible lol
I gotta say for a YouTube game journalist him and his group are pretty damn clueless. Like try watching their reaction to the Xbox briefing. Hilariously misinformed about almost everything and their hot takes are the worst.

They seem to only care about a very small amount of games/genres and disregard everything else as “filler” and nonsense like that. I just find it funny how people like to shit on ign or kotaku but then listen to these guys who have no idea what they are reporting on.

I was talking about it on Tuesday. It certainly is going for a small and cute feel musically. You can hear this with the way the instruments were recorded/mixed and the way the arrangements are crafted. For example, instead of a massive orchestra of strings, brass, percussion, etc. all playing at once, it seems like they've gone for smaller, almost chamber like arrangements. Not a lot of reverb is used as well. Could be due to the space the instruments were recorded in (for the organic instruments), but it's also certainly a stylistic choice in the mixing stage by the mixing engineer. Even the synthetic elements don't have a lot of reverb. It's very interesting.

I was originally not fully on board with what we heard when the game was first revealed but damn I think it's sounding great from what we've heard at E3. I love the way the overworld theme is sounding. The intro music while you go find your sword is great. The dungeon music also sounds nice. If I'm remembering correctly, Link's Awakening's dungeons all have unique themes. So that will be really cool to discover as we go through them.

That's exactly why they should release Prime Trilogy right now.
BOTW gets delayed three times so here’s Windwaker HD and Twilight Princess HD to hold you over until then.

Nintendo fucks over Metroid Prime 4 and restarts development. Sorry, nothing for you Metroid fans lol

Like seriously? 2D Metroid is happening but they won’t reveal it. MPT is ready and they won’t reveal it. It’s ridiculous

I don't think that's true of Luigi - Nintendo seem to be gearing up to treat it as a major release. It was the only title in the E3 Direct to get a detailed look rather than a 60 to 90 second trailer. On top of that, I've read some comments in Luigi's Mansion 3 previews which suggest Nintendo expect this to be a major seller. Fire Emblem games sell 500k to 2 million copies, whereas Luigi's Mansion 2 sold 6 million copies. Without Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion 3 is Nintendo's biggest end of year release after Pokemon. It's going to get a big push.

As much as I'd like to see Prime Trilogy HD soon, the release schedule is already busy and there may well be a 2D Metroid in the works for 2020. We had Samus Returns in 2017, too. And, to put it bluntly, Metroid is commercially much smaller than Zelda. Zelda has traditionally sold in the 3 to 8 million range, with Breath of the Wild the obvious outlier. Metroid sometimes struggles to break the million mark.
