Yet we wonder what's on Nintendo's plans this year for Fall (Legend of Zelda! Oh, PLEASE be Legend of Zelda!).

E3. These are coming out before it with the Other M already coming a bit after. So Nintendo might have a big bang or a splash at E3. High hopes for Zelda News, PIKMIN 3, that Kirby game announced for the Wii, and I'm expecting StarFox or F-Zero. They'd have to bring a franchise onto the Wii.

What core game secrets does Nintendo have for second half 2010/11? Other wm+ games as well as Zelda and vitality sensor casual offerings. It could be a very strong 2010 for Wii. I'm sure there's more than Zelda plus the 3rd party support.
