Francis is a large chameleon and stereotypical nerdy gamer that would fit great in the world of Smash Bros. He has many interesting moves like going invisible and using his laptop, camera, and cat-themed gadgets like Meowbombs. His videogame collection could also be used as weapons. His final smash could trap the fighters in an anime dating-sim where the attack is chosen from an RPG-like menu. His stage could be his 8-bit themed Fort Francis.
Iwata apologizes again for the Zelda delay and announced a new title for Wii U, which will release in Winter 2015 instead:
Paper Mario (working title): first trailer shown, uses the best parts of the first four titles of the series, developed by Intelligent Systems, more infos at E3 2015.
Pokemon Rumble World will be presented, releases on April 17th 2015 in the Nintendo eShop for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The game supports the Pokemon amiibo from the Smash Bros. Collection.
SNES titles will be released in the 3DS eShop, the Wii U eShop will get GB und GBC titles. There will also be some cross-play for VC titles already bought and which are available on both systems. (My note: If you bought one game on the 3DS, you can also play it on your Wii U. No need to buy it twice.)
The SNES, GB and GBC titles will be released after the presentation.
The Web eShop will be presented. Developed by Nintendo and DeNA. You can log in with your NNID and use the normal eShop functions. If the console is in stand-by, games bought on the eShop will be automatically downloaded. The Web eShop will implemented both the Wii U and 3DS eShop. Planned launch: April 2015.
New functions for the eShop: Pre-orders. Customers will be able to buy games months in advance and will get a 10% discount. The amount will be charged on launch day or the day the pre-load starts. The first games will be available following the presentation:
SplatoonKirby and the Rainbow PaintbrushCode Name: S.T.E.A.M.Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition
amiibo Gallery will be presented. With this app, gamers can use their amiibo already used on the console, to look at them in a gallery. There you can take pictures of them and show them in Miiverse. There is also a mode called Origins. When you scan the amiibo via the NFC reader, you’ll be able to play a segment of the first game the amiibo appeared in. (My note: If you scan Link, you should be able to play a part of the first Legend of Zelda is my understanding of this.) This app will be available for free in May 2015 for Wii U and 3DS.
N64 games will be available in June 2015 in the Wii U eShop. Release list:
June 4th: Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (If you buy one of the games until June 11th 23:59 MEZ, you get the other for free.)June 11th: Kirby 64: The Crystal ShardsJune 18th: Super Smash Bros.June 25th: 1080° Snowboarding
The games support widescreen and upscaling to 720p, support all controllers and off-tv-play. Price: 9,99 € per game. Owners who already bought the game on the Wii Shop can upgrade for 1,99 €.

Masahiro Sakurai says thanks to the fans for their patience and says good bye.
I'm a little concerned that Nintendo is outsourcing this... I'm afraid it will just be the same ole iphone games but with a Mario skin. When instead we could have a port of Professor Layton or something like Kirby Mass Attack

It took a little longer than expected, but I finally got this thing up and running. I don't plan on renewing unless you guys keep playing, so it's currently set up to run over the next month. Though I don't think I can enforce it, everyone starting fresh so we're all at the same point would probably add to the effect.
a 4-stock match with Smash Balls (medium) on any stage.
a 5-minute time match with no items on battlefield, smashville (Wii U), Town and City (Wii U), or Yoshi's Island (3DS).
a 3-stock match with no items on any omega stage.
Character: Use a different 1 of your 3 chosen characters for each match.
Reward for Victory: 5 points per match.
This *crag*ing tourney is finally going to end! The top 3 contestants are Ph1zzl3, Viddd and myself, and so to decide the winner of the tourney we will be having a 3-player set of 3 matches with each of our mains. If I win the tourney, whoever comes second will get the $15 steam game prize. If anyone else wins, I’ll bump their prize up to ~$20-25. In the event of a tie, the winner will be settled via a ‘for glory’ style match (2-stock, 5 minutes, final destination, with any of your 3 mains).
The other matches are included solely so people can determine their overall rank if they want, but nobody’s been doing their matches recently so I can’t see this being any different.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE, I HOPE THE TOURNEY GAVE YOU AT LEAST SOME GOOD TIMES AND
BUT that might mean that Gamepad/Pro-controller support may be coming to Wii disc games in the future that use the Classic Controller.
EDIT: It's technically not identical to Wii discs... because Wii discs send you to the Wii home screen where you have to select the Disc Channel. SMG2 digital skips that step and boots you straight into the game. Hopefully that feature comes to Wii discs too.
Because goddamn it I need to catch up on the Smash tourney and a lot of you guys need to do that too
