I'd say ~30 minutes

4 min: Animal Crossing
3 min: Bayonetta 3 (2020) | Luigi's Mansion 3
2 min: Apex Legends | Astral Chain | Retro Studios (2020) | Mystery Game #4
1 min 30 sec: Fire Emblem: Three Houses | Pokémon Sword/Shield | The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
1 min: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order | Ori & the Blind Forest
30 sec: Daemon X Machina | Metroid Prime Trilogy HD | No More Heroes 1 & 2 | Pikmin 3 Deluxe

+1 min 30 of Doug Bowser and Shinya Takahashi talking (and maybe Reggie as a surprise guest?)

+2 min 2019 Software Lineup sizzle reel:
A Hat in Time | Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night | Cadence of Hyrule | Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled | CrossCode | Dead by Daylight | Devil May Cry | DOOM Eternal |
Dragon Quest Builders 2 | Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2 | Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition | FIFA 20 |
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition | Just Dance 2020 | Killer Queen Black | Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games | Ninjala | Oninaki |
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3 | Roller Champions | Stranger Things 3: The Game | Super Mario Maker 2 | Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Challenger Pack #2 |
TOWN | Wolfenstein: Youngblood (| Yo-kai Watch 4?)


I think Mystery Game #4 will be a multiplayer game maybe a new EPD IP or the return of an old Nintendo Sports IP like Wave Race, Pilotwings, 1080°
Challenger Pack #2 should be revealed at the Invitational, same for the remaining Super Mario Maker 2 news

I’m sure this was posted yesterday, but I just found it and it’s pretty interesting

How pissed would people have been in they actually called BotW “A New Legend of Zelda” and rebranded the future installments that way?
They always go through the same rumours :^3 twilight princess was the same way, and i believe Skyward Sword too ,they will never call A new Zelda Legend of Zelda we are stuck with new subtitles forever

Feels fucking great to go into this E3 with more than enough to get you by. Mario Maker 2, Link's Awakening, Pokemon, Luigi's Mansion, Smash DLC, Astral Chain. This is already a 10/10 E3 for me.
It will be one of the most packed E3 in years but honestly, those games do not excite me. I'll be skipping most of them.

Mario Maker 2... I'm not a creative guy and I'd rather play levels made by professionals rather than fans. Plus I've already played a 2D Mario this year. Skipping it.
Link's Awakening remake for $60 is really unfair. I've already finished the game 30+ something times (thanks to childhood transcontinental car rides). Maybe if price drops or Nintendo reveals some sweet extras for the game.
I'm on the fence for AC. Mortgage shit and limited space make me hate the game. If they remove Tortimer Island and the way to farm bells by catching Golden Beetles all year long I'm definitely skipping this.
Luigi's Mansion... I just hate this series.

But there are lots of other stuff to get excited about. Astral Chain, Pokémon, DQ11, Doom Eternal, whatever MS has, Square's new game, Retro... I don't need to beg you guys to sell my turnips to have fun with Switch this year.

What games do you guys think they'll feature in the Treehouse? That's my most anticipated part of E3 tbh.
Fire Emblem Three Houses will surely get quite a bit of screentime. It's releasing in July and has had relatively little marketing so far compared to Awakening/Fates. Still seen precious little battle gameplay, no full maps, only footage from the beginning of the game, etc.

The JP twitter has been doing bios and videos on each announced character, but the NA/EU ones have been comparatively lax, with no localized videos to match, just bios.

I'm asking because one of the scrapped logos for BotW shown in that artwork was literally "A New Legend of Zelda". Seems like it was a consideration at some point.

I think Animal Crossing and Mario Maker 2 will get the most segments. I’m thinking 3 segments. Links Awakening, Astral Chain, Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Fire Emblem I see getting 2 segments. Pokémon SWSH with one segment. Marvel with one, maybe 2 segments.
I'm really excited for Astral Chain and Pokemon gameplay among all of the possible games they'll show. Mario Maker I agree, is probably going to get the biggest chunk of gameplay of them all.

And 3 segments for Retro's next game. Call me a fool but I still believe
Jesus, if only...!
Now this is a bold pick.

Now that you mentioned it, seems like the logic choice. In past Treehouse conferences there's always been a particular game that's featured prominently. I think FE is going to be the one this year's.

Time flies, it's almost 3 weeks away

Edit: RE Length of the direct

We'll find out ahead of time how long it is and its going to be a 20 page debate thread between people who think its 30-40 minute of Animal Crossing vs. those who thing it will be more even after last year's direct/

I love the pre-e3 hype. I don’t so much like the post-e3 pessimism that follows soon after.
Honestly, only if people have insane expectations. We go through this 3-4 times a year now with the direct buld up. People need to be realistic, but I do feel this year's E3 will be more special than last year's.;

<- Also a fool then.

Pretty sure I just saw a Retro hiring advert on Twitter for a contract tester as recently as 2 days ago. I'd think it'd be way too early for MP4 testing :)
In-house tester is way different than the NOA Product Testing Dept testing which is near the end of the game's development. So yeah, it's for MP4.

I just played Bayonetta for the first time recently and after being charmed as hell I'm personally just excited to see more about Astral Chain. More specifically if the level/world design is going to be on linear side of things or have more open adventure elements in the mix. I can't seem to find a source and people seem conflicted on what it's going to be so it'll be nice to get some new information about it, especially since it's out in a few months.

I expect a new retro game and another 2019 surprise or two but time will tell

No MUA3 hype? It’s as much a Nintendo as. Team Ninja game according to the interviews

all Retro jobs are posted on that account. it's pretty explicit who it's for (Retro in Austin, not NOA in Washington)
Pretty sure Retro did a hiring post on their own account very recently tho

It's really impressive how they managed to keep the game a secret until less than a year from release, and will have the first real gameplay showing around two~ months from release. I didn't love what I played from bayo 1/2, but this game has me super excited

Is it too early to post E3 bingos? Anyway here's mine. Sorry for the shit quality, I still haven't figured out how to upload images with an iPad:


Let's see how many of them I guessed right.
