Pikmin 3 might have stirred my interest if I'd had played the previous two. Wind Waker HD is obviously a great opportunity to relive a classic, potentially with extras, but that alone is not enough to warrant purchasing the console. Smash Bros is probably a long way off, especially with Sakurai's recent health problems, not to mention it'll be available on 3DS. Zelda Wii U is similarly a long way away. Bayonetta 2 is actually a decent exclusive for the console, but again, I can't justify buying the console just for that.
Nintendo really need to announce/show off some impressive stuff at E3. Announce a new F-Zero and Star Fox and I'll buy one straight away.
The likes of Zelda, Animal Crossing, Pokémon, Metroid, Mario Galaxy, Paper Mario, Starfox, Smash Bros. and Pikmin are games I'm not interested in (quite a lot I know). Still waiting for all these new and amazing games from Nintendo, it didn't really happen with the Wii. Bayonetta 2 will be great, but I bet it comes out on other consoles (look at what happened to the Dreamcast exclusive of CODE: Veronica). Same thing will probably happen with ZombieU. From Nintendo, I wouldn't say no to a Wave Race 3 and a Stunt Race 2. I'd bet a new F-Zero is in the works. But you can't get away from the fact that most gamers have probably got sick of the same old Nintendo franchises.
