Konami + Nintendo crossover - they've made an entire game out of the Mario Sunshine Pachinko style levels.

Haha, exactly!

The other great one was 2006, where Sony showed off Genji.

Apparently, this was set within an authentic version of Japanese history.

And featured GIANT ENEMY CRABS!

Hit it's weak point for MASSIVE DAMAGE!

I just hope we get the switch pro reveal and zelda collection (obviously removed from sale after 6 months).

I dont think they'll reveal the Pro. Production rumours don't suggest the release is that imminent.

The problem is if you reveal hardware you kill sales of the existing model while people wait for the new one to come out. If they're planning to release it in say October for the holiday period, they'll likely reveal it in September.

Yes, you’re right and nintendo are one of the best at maximising sales of their products. I hope mario golf and skyward sword are decent enough for the summer month, although am hoping for a zelda collection too. Replaying wind waker on a hand held would be nice, but nicer in 4k!
