New Mario Games

It's an obvious thing to hope for, but let's face facts: it's been a year and a half since Super Mario Galaxy came out, and it's still the best game on the Wii. If Nintendo is serious about re-engaging with its hardcore audience, it needs to give them some modern classics. A new Mario adventure could be a big step in the right direction, and it would give Nintendo a fine centrepiece for its presentation in LA. We're hoping for at least a trailer, or some sign that plumber-platforming is still on the company's to-do list. While we're at it, a new DS game would be nice too.

More Zelda

He's small, he wears green clothes and he's a bit of a metrosexual, but gamers everywhere love Link to bits. To an even greater extent than a new Mario game, the Wii is long overdue for a fresh Zelda adventure. We know that it's a question of "When" rather than "If", but if Nintendo keeps shtum next month then expect more than a few disgruntled grumbles. To be fair, we're almost certain to hear something - the real question is "What will it be like?". Miyamoto himself has said that the series needs new ideas, so with any luck we'll get a whiff of a new flavour or direction for the wandering adventurer. Hopefully he'll speak this time, and he'll be voiced by either Sir Ben Kingsley or Graham Norton. Oh, and though it goes without saying, we want more details of Spirit Tracks on the DS - the newly announced follow-up to Phantom Hourglass.

What do you want Nintendo to show at its E3 conference? Let us know in the comments section below.

AND PBLIVE, yes, Star Fox Adventure was a good game. I really liked it. I thought it was nice and colorful, and fun as well. If you could take out the part where you fly the ship at the end, the game would have been a 10...

More promise for the Wii, this is great news, Hey how about Sega Rally, or better yet, SHENMUE. Put the Shenmue series on Wii, and watch the units fly.

Pilot Wings series, Space Station Silicon Valley and Goldeneye on VC and a new Pilot Wings game.

A decent Star Fox game (though Adventure wasn't all that bad).

Pokemon Gold & Silver is the important one for me this year from Nintendo.

Mario and Zelda aside, I'd like to see a Lylat Wars sequel more than anything. It's absolutely perfect for Wii and motion sensing and I cannot believe Nintendo aren't working on something based on Starfox.

Lylat Wars was almost like a rail-shooter with a bit of added movement, your route was pre-defined, but you could still dodge stuff with analogue stick movement.

Wii controls would be the same but with the light gun rail-shooter style of shooting, aiming at the target with the wii remote. Shake the nunchuck in various directions to "do a barrel roll", a back flip, brake or "use the boost to chase" :laugh: whack view toggle on the c button, lasers on B, bombs on A, something special on Z... sorted.

Aside from my Lylat pipe dream, Galaxy 2 will sell systems and keep public interest in the game like Zelda wont, they might release Zelda this year as well, though. If they leave it to next year they might be releasing it at the end of a console's life again :P
