This year's E3 is sure to be full of surprises, especially with the announcement of the Wii successor. So keeping true to this, I decided to keep my predictions to a minimum this time around. Well, relatively-speaking anyway. Here's a list of a couple things I'm expecting on the Nintendo front:

  • A new set of 3DS colours will be announced and make their way onto shelves before year-end.
  • The 4th Professor Layton title gets confirmed for NA.
  • In discussing the eShop's launch on Monday, Nintendo will reveal that Flipnote Studio is in development for the service.
  • Kirby makes an appearance in some form during the conference, either through an announcement of an upcoming eShop title or via a confirmation of Gather! Kirby’s localization.
  • Line Attack Heroes finally gets confirmed for WiiWare release in North America.
  • New WarioWare title is revealed for Project Café or 3DS.
  • Nintendo will announce a revamp for the Wii & DSi Shop Channels.
  • Yoshi will be making his way to the 3DS in some fashion.
  • A new Pokémon game is announced for Project Café or 3DS.
  • Nintendo will reveal that work is underway for a second Zelda project.
  • Nintendo confirms when we can expect additional platforms to be represented on the eShop, including the Game Boy Advance.
  • Cosmic Walker re-surfaces.
  • Nintendo will announce a Picross game for the 3DS.
  • Q-Games announces a game for the eShop.
  • Nintendo will have something to show on the Vitality Sensor's progress but will only briefly mention it.

Third-Party Developers:
  • A continuation of the Sonic 20th Anniversary will follow with another franchise announcement.
  • SEGA reveals their eShop line-up.
  • The next Rabbids game will be set in space once again.
  • Paper World gets officially announced for the Wii.
  • Magic Pixel Games (ex-Boom Blox devs) announces a new game for Project Café.
  • More info on Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance will surface.
  • The once-cancelled Bomberman 3DS will re-surface.
  • SQUARE ENIX announces a Final Fantasy spin-off title for the 3DS.

And here’s one more prediction just for kicks... Billy thinks Nintendo will end their conference with a montage of Cammie's highlights over the years, resulting in a tear-filled auditorium.
(Obviously he’s kidding.)

Let the E3 surprises begin!
