I was not sure about a new FE bfore the announcement, seeing that they're still pumping out new FE13 merchandise even in 2015. I heard that FE9/10 will be getting soundtrack CDs though, so it's not like old games are excluded from getting those stuff.
The big thing is that the gap between Awakening and If is the largest gap between two Fire Emblem games since the Super Famicom era. That, and also knowing that 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the series made it extremely obvious that something was coming.

Whoa, it has been that long already? Their 20th (FE12) felt not too long ago...
I thought they'd like to keep Awakening's "latest game" status for a while, riding on its success (and wait for the potential surge of new players brought in by Smash). And I was expecting another Ylissean tale instead of this, which members of Serenes Forest speculate to be Elibe-related.
Huh. Did I not make any predictions for 2013? That's strange, I could have sworn I did. Ah well.
My gamer-psychic powers dictate that 2014 will see...
Something new on the Paper Mario front.
Tropical Freeze releases, of course. A certain krokodile makes a kameo.
Pokemon Z announced. Releases 2015.
Takamaru for SSB4! As a regular, ordinary trophy. =/
Nintendo releases a buttload of new games. One of us overbuys, and accidentally creates a black hole trying to make all the games fit on the shelf.
No new Paper Mario, no Kremling cameos in Tropical Freeze, no announcement for Pokemon Z...but I actually undershot Takamaru, given that he ended up an Assist Trophy in SSB4. And once again, the world is still a thing so clearly no one's overbought anything.
I don't really have any predictions this year, unfortunately. So I'll just sit this year's predicting out.
Not much longer to go, but still time for predictions!
- Star Fox with co-op are a Arwing Amiibo. - Animal Crossing Wii U with that could work with those leaked Amiibo figures. New feature includes ability to pan for gold using Gamepad. Possible other tool use/customization features using the Gamepad. - Another upcoming Smash Bros character reveal. - Diddy Kong Racing by Monster Games. - More Fatal Frame V details. - Blast Ball fully revealed to be some sort of multiplayer mode for a new Metroid. - Splatoon update, Tower Control mode details and more Amiibo cosmetics. - More new 3DS titles to make use of the new NFC scanner/Amiibo. - Roy DLC for Codename STEAM. - Some more info about Devil's Third and release for NA. - English voiced trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles X. - Zelda Wii U 2016 teaser. - Eternal Darkness with some sort of Vitality Sensor feature.

Huh? E3 prediction? I'm only 10 minutes from it....
Actually, I'm too excited for Fire Embelm if and Super Mario Maker that I don't really care about any potential new games. Just give me more Mario Maker showcase.
Anyway, a few quick predictions:
- Another Smash reveal, but not for immediate consumption - Additional Mario Maker feature, whatever that is (playable Luigi please) - They'll finally talk about what last year's Miyamoto games (Star Fox, Giant Robot, that other game whose name I forgot) are about - Blast Ball in details - Um... 2.5D Metroid?
Also, the inevitable: Nintendo-themed phone games. E3 is industry-oriented, after all.

This year's coming to a close, and unless some game company out there decide to make sudden announcements at this time, everything should be set in stone by now. Time to laugh at those "conservative" predictions.
-The final version of Star Fox Wii U announced at E3 and released in Q4. -Zelda Wii U released at that time as well. -Captain Toad gets DLC level packs. -Splatoon releases in May. -Metroid title for 3DS announced at E3.
-First half correct, second half incorrect (was originally correct at one point). -Nope. Delayed to the end of this year. -Nope, just some useless amiibo shit. -BINGO. -Not what I expected, but nailed it.
