I'm looking forward to seeing The Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, Luigi's Mansion 2, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

All I really want, though, is some more Pokemon X/Y Gameplay... ho hum.

Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Is there gonna be a new demo of Pikmin 3, or is it just gonna be the same stuff we've seen before?

Looks like a good line up. First game event I went to was SXSW Gaming Expo in Ausin, TX. I was very disappointed. Looked like they had some game like DOTA on a big screen holding a tournament which took up half the expo. Looked incredibly boring and I didn't even bother with the small Nintendo section. About the only good to come from it was that I got a few street passes and saw some girls dressed up in little gaming outfits for character contest.

Aw, well. It'll only be a couple of months before the game releases anyway, right?

Right?



I could swear i heard that Indies were going to show something for Wii U aswell. Either that ot it is at GDC. Can`t tell.

If they are already showing The Wonderful 101, then the game must be close to releasing.
