So what do you think will be the Killer App this year?

This video thinks it will be Mario Kart, which has some very sound logic behind it, but given the rush to finish MK7 in 2011, I think they will be working on something else for a while. I'm fully expecting a 3D Mario reveal next E3, but do you think something else will come completely out of the left field and surprise us?
Metroid would be about right, but it is hardly a system seller. If they DON'T have a killer app out next year, Nintendo will seriously struggle to keep hype going. They have Miyamoto's new IP and whatever Retro is working on, and that's all we know. Personally, I'd go for Metroid or an F-Zero revival.

3D Mario seems the most likely.

I absolutely predict it will be revealed, but it would be really great if they can release it next year, too. If they have any sense, they'll put their resources into doing that.

what do you mean by app?

video games are not apps.
farmville is an app.
notepad is an app.

never relate video games as apps.

ever!

I know, but "Killer App" is a phrase that was in use long before phone gaming got popular.

they are apps, app stands for application. They just have no practical use and are for entertainment.

I kind of think it's Monster Hunter 3 Ult at the moment.

That is the reason I got the Wii U. It isn't out here yet so it counts as 2013.

As for Christmas, I have no idea. Maybe a 3D Mario is the safe bet.
