Even thought I think the WiiU has had a lack lustre beginning, there is a part of me that is intrigued by what a new Mario will be like on the system. The Retro game will be Starfox

The first 3 are possible, not a chance that the fourth is going to happen.

Add me! :)

Well, they certainly sound possible, which is a good start!

Goku in SSB4? How lame, I can already play as him in Brawl :P

Now honestly, I really want these rumors to be true (and sice all of them are plausible - why shouldn't they) and expect Nintendo to blow me away this year. They definately have the potential. This is going to be the best E3 we've had in a loooong time^^

A first person Star Fox game? No chance. Star Fox is a 3rd person series, not a 1st person one.

Do! not! want! I would prefer that the Smash series would stick with characters that originated in videogames.



I really don't think Retro is working on a new IP, and I really doubt it's a first person shooter, something most Nintendo fans really don't care for in the first place.

I'd love Goku is Smash, but it's just not going to happen. He's not a video game character... it's really that simple.

No one said it would be an FPS. Remember, Metroid Prime also is first-person. Which makes me think the game by Retro is Metroid Prime 4. The ending of Mentroid Prime 3 already hinted at a successor.

Goku? Nope.

As for 3D Mario, we were all expecting this. May 30th is a longgg time.

 Nintendopie  Was obviously right and I was obviously wrong. I will forever be a lesser being than them. (6/16/13)
