Yeah I can't believe there was only 1 booth last time, with a 3 hour wait minimum.

And just for extra salt on the wound, the booth was shrouded too so you couldn't get a peek of it!

The queue at E3 2010 was 5-6 hours at one point and they had ~16 booths.

I like that Nintendo is bringing 3rd party content with them. They've been moving in the right direction lately so it good so they are sustaining it.

I didn't even have time to queue me and my friend had a train to take so when the said 3 hour wait we were like...ok no. As much as we want to try it we couldn't afford the wait!

I really hope I get to have a go this time. But in any case Skyward Sword is dated for November 18th so either way it won't be too long.
