Wondering which games Nintendo will be featuring at their booth during this week? Well, a few rumors have popped up that tell us which titles they might be. A NeoGAF member claims to have had a quick look at Nintendo’s booth. According to the user, there were huge Sin and Punishment 2/Endless Ocean 2 banners. The Sin and Punishment 2 rumor is not the first time it has appeared. Another member also claimed to have seen the banner. Last but not least, Luigi, a Mario brick square, and a coin were also located in the area.

Here’s one last rumor, but please let me stress that yes, this is speculation and should only be taken as a rumor – for now. According to “Annoying Old Party Man” on NeoGAF, it was said in more or less words that Zelda Wii will be announced tomorrow. Of course, I wouldn’t be posting this if I didn’t believe in the user at all. Believe it or not, “Annoying Old Party Man” predicted last night that Halo Reach would be revealed – And we all know what happened at Microsoft’s conference today. But again, this is by no means a confirmation. It was additionally stressed that the user’s source does not have concrete information about Nintendo’s conference, seeing as how Nintendo is unpredictable. At the same time, however, “Annoying Old Party Man” said that his source “knows about the new Zelda.”

I mentioned this a big yesterday, but I wanted to reiterate that we will indeed be covering conferences for both EA and Ubisoft today. I’m pretty sure that Ubisoft will be focusing on at least Red Steel 2 and Rabbids Go Home. EA will definitely have some Nintendo news as well.

Anyways, here are the times for both conferences:
