Nintendo Spotlight E3 2017: Predictions & Live Stream

After what many are calling lackluster conferences by both Microsoft and Sony, Nintendo is getting the chance to really shine with their now annual E3 Spotlight.  Will they show us a bunch of unannounced games, or will they just show us already announced titles?  Will we get release dates for games like Super Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles 2?  What games will be pushed back?  We will find out in less than an hour, at 12:00 PM EST!

Personally, this is what I think will happen and what I would love to see (but probably won't happen):

Most Likely:
  • New info on Splatoon 2
  • Showing off ARMS one last time (before it drops later this week)
  • Super Mario Odyssey release date and new info
  • Hey! Pikmin new footage
  • Fire Emblem Warriors
  • Monster Hunter Stories
  • Kirby's Blowout Blast
  • Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
  • NBA 2K18
  • Skyrim
  • Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC 1 & 2 information 
  • Virtual Console for Switch
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 2 delayed to 2018

Wishful Thinking:
  • New Metroid
  • Smash Bros. Deluxe for Switch
  • Breath of the Wild DLC 1 releases TODAY
  • Breath of the Wild DLC 2 new story is the alien invasion pitched during the game's concept phase
  • Switch Online service gets a better name and releases the free version THIS WEEK with ARMS
  • WWE 2K18 announced
  • Mother 3 in English
  • Grand Theft Auto announced
So, let's dive in and see what's actually going to happen!
