In a about 10 hours, Nintendo will be having its keynote presentation at this year’s E3. There will be numerous places to watch it live online and even on TV. What’s even more amazing is that Nintendo has already gone ahead and done a pre-presentation to show off new features of the Wii U, its gamepad and new controllers, its built-in software and online/social features, and some news about the 3DS. They showed off all of this just so they wouldn’t distract from tomorrow’s presentation where they will talk exclusively about the new games.
Though I have not been keeping up with the latest leaks and rumors, what I have heard from various news sources is:
- Mario title at launch
- The Star Fox/Metroid crossover game was only proposed, but was not created
- Nintendo to show new Star Fox and F-Zero games
I’m going to be at work at 9AM (Pacific) when Nintendo has their presentation, but I will be able to watch it there. If there is any news about Star Fox and/or Krystal, I will post about it as soon as I can. I’m hoping for an epic Star Fox game in the pedigree of Star Fox 64, but with the newer crew of Fox, Falco, Slippy, and, of course, Krystal.
