Wii U:
A camera/sensor to support head/controller tracking like Johnny Lee's old idea: 
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd3-eiid-Uw" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd3-eiid-Uw</a>

Or something like the vitality sensor built into the Wii U controller:


3DS:
A new model with dual sliders and at least one 3D classic like something from Super Mario or The Legend of Zelda.




But who knows.  Not me.  E3 is too far way and I haven't had that second glass of wine yet.

Still waiting for F-Zero U.

This seems likely, especially if it just ends up being a digital-only version of the 360 with Kinect built in rather than being a completely new console. I'm hoping it's that so I don't have to look at potential new games I'll never own. Hmm.

I hope Square Enix announces a US release date for Final Fantasy Type-0. I also hope it's not download-exclusive, and for the sake of Vita owners (not that there are a lot of them!), I hope it's not retail-exclusive like some previous releases.

I hope Skullgirls, Fez (lol), and Spelunky! HD (loooool) are out before E3 so I won't be taunted by their existence if any of them are displayed at the show.

A sequel to Super Mario 3D Land will be announced/shown, despite being previously mentioned that it would be difficult to make a sequel.
Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

I'd love to see Yoshi and true flight (instead of hovering and floating) in Super Mario 3D Land 2.

Actual flight would kind of screw up stage design though, considering that past attempts at flying Mario in a 3D game were not involved (for the most part) in levels that are of the point-A-to-point-B type.
Gently push a piece of the tube containing the intersection along the fourth dimension, out of the original three dimensional space.

Actual flight would mean Nintendo letting go of the leash a little. Flight was always a gamebreaker. Raccoon flight was at least a little limited and a little integrated into gameplay, but the Cape and the P-Wing just let you skip entire levels instead of going through them the way they're meant to be played. And that's why they're fun.

Modern Nintendo is afraid to let go of the player at any point. They could have made the Red Star usable on any level in Galaxy; made it into a P-Wing that just lets you do whatever you want, completely skip over entire sections, go to places you weren't supposed to in ways you weren't supposed to and probably run into glitches, just like you could with a P-Wing or a Cape, but some players might get confused and frustrated at the glitches. But that's what made it fun.

Ultimately, you can't design a game as fun and timeless as SMB3 because, as expertly crafted a game as it is, so much of what makes it perfect wasn't designed at all.

I'd put the Minecraft logo here, but that would definitely get me banned from the Mario forum.
