Good news. Although I didn't exactly expect them to be sitting around the office, just hanging out, or catching up on admin. They are game developers after all!

Ah but you can't take anything for granted with Ninty these days! :). Looking forward to the 30th!

You'd better announce something before E3, otherwise the Wii U will be facing a massive uphill battle after Christmas.

I dunno, I think there will be Bayonetta 2 and Pikmin 3 after Christmas - which isn't too shabby - I don't think there's confirmation on the release dates of The Wonderful 101 or Lego City so they may be 2013 too. And isn't Monster Hunter coming in March? I think a lot of it might depend on the quality, and number, of bigger multiplatform games coming out, although I don't really know what is scheduled for Jan-April 2013.

I hope the God it's new adventures of Starfox or even some completely new IP. Metroid could be good too if only it's 3D this time (unlike Other M)

I would like Nintendo to make a new IP in the FPS genre. I know first person shooter are old but Nintendo take on them is always a bit different and moves away from the standalone bad ass or the military inspired shooter that is so prevalent in games today. I also would like to see them take advantage of the microphone more in games than they are doing now, also less wagging the wiimote not a fan and hope dual tablet support come quickly after launch; also as I have said before they must allow third party peripherals to work with the Wii u so the price of accessories is not so high like on the vita.

No thank you. We have the Metroid Prime series as is.

That said, I'd really like another MP game, although I'd want it to return to the style of the original: solitude, exploration of a variety of environments and suit upgrades over annoying NPCs, Halo-aping gunplay and MOAR STRONGER WEPONZ. I have no doubt that we will see another Prime game, but whether it returns to what made the original great is yet to be seen.
