Frankly after their bad E3 Direct in 2018 i have No expectations

First half was great though, so I don't see why people must see each E3 edition as a simple duality of good/bad. The whole package was correct and even then if you're a fan of Smash, the 2nd part was useful in it's content even though th pace was strange.

But yeah, it's best to not go there with expectations cuz you could just hurt yourself even more.

I think it failed to cover the base.

I like Nintendo, but I happen to not enjoy Pokemon or Smash. So you can imagine how I felt watching that Direct. I felt ostracized.

It simply wasn't enough for me.

Too early for this, wait first for first Direct of year, and they will have more clear picture about potential E3 and 2nd half of year.



I just hope that it isnt as bad as last year. They couldve marketed it as a smash direct and saved me those 45 minutes.

 

edit: Pokemon always has a reveal in their own direct, and are never the star of E3. So I'm betting on Luigi's Mansion. 



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I voted Pokemon, because that is the game that Nintendo will try to push the most.  However, I don't think that will be the thing that stands out the most in their presentation.

Instead I think what will stand out is the huge amount of quality content coming to Switch.  Their E3 "Direct" will be a lot like their September 2018 Direct only better.  It will have at least as much content, but the third party games will be even more impressive.  Most the of the third party games will either be exclusives or multi-plat games that haven't been released yet on any system.  On top of that 2019 is going to have a better first party line-up than last year.  Put all of that together and you are going to see their best "Direct" yet.



I’m actually thing Luigi’s Mansion. It’s the most Nintendo-y game they’ve got coming in tye near future and Luigi is almost as recognizable as Mario himself.



Around the Network

Given we haven't had a Direct yet this year, it feels a little early to speculate, but my guess is we might actually see a slight change of emphasis. I think this thread is simplifying Nintendo's marketing strategy at E3 in the last few years. If you think about 2016 and 2018, both the showfloor and the digital broadcast were dominated by a single title (Zelda and Smash, respectively). That isn't true of 2017. While the showfloor was designed around Odyssey and pre-E3 material suggested Odyssey was the focus, Nintendo's digital broadcast was fairly wide in scope - it wasn't devoted entirely to Odyssey and didn't have 20 minutes of Odyssey coverage. 2016 is something of an outlier in terms of digital coverage, given Nintendo's position at the time, 2017 had Odyssey positioned as the major title on the showfloor but didn't overemphasise it during the broadcast, while Smash was the basis for the showfloor and took up half of the broadcast time.

My assumption is while the showfloor will be designed around Animal Crossing - effectively designed as an Animal Crossing village you can roam around with character models, trees and houses etc - that game won't receive the bulk of E3 coverage. So it'll be similar to 2017, wherein the pre-E3 material and Nintendo's showfloor emphasised Odyssey, but their digital broadcast was much broader in scope. By way of comparison, in 2016 and 2018, both the showfloor and the digital broadcast placed a heavy emphasis on a single title.

Really what I'd like to see from Nintendo is an emphasis on how strong their 2019 line-up is going to be - and a showfloor which is part Animal Crossing village, part Luigi's Mansion, part generation 8, but I think Animal Crossing, as a major EPD release, is the likeliest candidate for this year's showfloor design. I'd expect the broadcast to be much more balanced than 2016 or 2018, though.

Agreed mostly. I also have a feeling that their unified development team model will finally start to show fruits, as we haven't seen a lot, as of yet from my understanding, from the major 3ds teams on the Switch. I have a feeling that 2019 is going to have a ton of AA 1st party games from Nintendo, with a few major AAA. This is going to be the year of Layton and the like.



Nintendo might reveal a megaton for the holidays, but i think that's not going to happen.

So, based on what we know for sure, it's either AC or Pokémon that will a big representation in the showfloor.
AC's presentation would look cute but not really engaging.
Pokémon? Unless it's something mind blowing, i don't see it being the center of the showfloor.

Personally, and again, based on what we know, i don't see one of those two games taking center stage at the showfloor.
