Countdown time!

I missed being able to do this from last year.
Things are still a bit dicey in the world so E3 is going to be a digital only event.

I expect Nintendo to have a direct and character reveal now that they seem to have their development sorted out. What are you expecting?

If this theory based off URL identifiers holds any water perhaps we could get a double reveal even with a spring character reveal too.

It's officially confirmed that Nintendo will be at E3 2021

Along with Microsoft, Capcom, Ubisoft, Konami, Take Two, Warner Bros. and Koch.

No word form Sony. I think they're firmly in one of their "too cool for the rest of the kids" phases.

So I guess we'll likely see the next fighter at E3 this year. Who're you hoping for? I'm placing my bets on Cash Banooca.
E3 reveals are usually the biggest ones comparatively, along with TGA reveals. Especially if we consider that Steve would have likely been last year's E3 reveal.

Crash Bandicoot would be a pretty dang big reveal and Activision would want a big deal to be made of it. That said there's other characters it could be, ones that we're not even thinking of but will be blindingly obvious in hindsight like Sephiroth.

suprised that Capcom is there, wonder what they're gonna show.

I'm hoping for Crash as well, since Bandana Dee doesn't seem like an E3 type of character, but I think Master Chief has a pretty good shot too

So damn exciting to get an actual confirmation! Thanks for this! Now we just need the direct date...

My hopes are for Eggman in Smash, a new 3D DK game developed by Retro Studios, Megaman.EXE Legacy Collection and Mega Man X9, gameplay of BotW 2, and a new Last of Us game that is completely removed from Ellie and Joel's story, but still takes place in their universe. A tease of Spider-Man 2 would also be nice.
These aren't predictions though, I might write those out later.

BTW, I'd love some Sonic news but apparently Sega is not confirmed to be attending E3. They could still join later but with how quiet they've been recently, I think they'll do something seperate in June-may have something to do with that concert we've been hearing about (hopefully it holds more weight than the Smash one lol).

I think we'll hear of more details once we get in May.

As they say, hindsight is 20/20 (especially in this fandom). The last few characters are ones that I wound up forgetting about after vouching for them before, so I'm trying not to overlook anyone now.

That being said, I won't entirely be too sure about counting Crash until we know for sure that Acti is in the full list of participants. Normally they're not one to skip out on E3 unless there is no other choice and go for the closest equivalent (like Summer Game Fest).

Looks more like a "holding a childish grudge that everyone else forgot about" phase to me. :4pacman:

For the record, I never believed in the concert leak, since that was the typical low-effort text leak courtesy of 4chan's /v/.

My prediction.

Double reveal.

CP10: Swordfighter character (Adol Christin, Chosen Undead, Dovahkiin, Euden, Nightmare, Sol Badguy, Yuri, etc.)
CP11: Master Chief

Swordfighter character releases same month, Master Chief releases in September-October.

IMO the characters that I'd qualify as huge would be (separate of any likelihood or personal preference)
  • Crash Bandicoot
  • Doom Guy
  • Fortnite character
  • League of Legends character
  • Tracer/Overwatch character
  • Space Invader(s)
  • Agumon/Digimon character
  • The Sims
  • Grand Theft Auto character
  • Scorpion/Mortal Kombat Kharacter
  • Master Chief
  • Any Sony Character
  • Any non-gaming character
Then again, we could be surprised. Mega Man isn't that big a series technically speaking but it was the big reveal at Smash 4's debut.

I would throw in Waluigi and Eggman in there too

I'm talking more about general public perception but those two would be huge for the fanbases and the memes.

Nice


But seriously though, I'm very excited to have the E3 reveals back. Betting Nintendo has a good deal of stuff to show off after they didn't have much in the last year

I'm 98% certain we'll get a character that barely anyone expected.

Also, Pac-Man was revealed behind closed doors while Palutena and the Mii Fighters got the limelight.

That being said, Mega Man was the most expected character at the time, so it's probably different here.

I wonder when Nintendo's direct will be. They're usually the last in order of live shows, doing their live show on the first day of the floor display but there's no floor show so it could be any time.
