The questionnaire had several topic listed, including one question that asked which E3 2017 announcements they were most looking forward to.
This included a range of known consoles such as the Nintendo Switch, as well as the SNES Classic Mini.
It should be noted that this isn’t exactly confirmation of anything being announced at E3 2017, although other reported suggests something is brewing.
