Nintendo Direct Speculation |OT|

So something new has to be announced for the 3DS. Each direct since the beginning has had one new announcement.

What would you be OK with? What would make you the least mad?
Considering how much 3DS sales seem to have fallen off a cliff judging from the recent earnings, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is Switch only. Maybe some stuff like Persona Q2 that has yet to be localized.

I’d love more cross platform stuff like Sushi Striker and Captain Toad. Also Kirby Rainbow Curse is begging to be ported to 3DS, it’s baffling that it hasn’t been.

- Dragon Quest XI S coming also to the West.
- DQB2 as well.
- Dragon Quest III remake in the works. First worldwide simultaneous release in the making.
- Direct ends with Erdrick/Loto reveal trailer.
These would make it the best Direct of all time. Add a Mother 1/2/3 remake or compilation and it becomes the best Direct of any timeline.

Persona Q2 was recently announced to be releasing outside of Japan on June 4th!

I'm not feeling the Direct hype enough, needs more crazy predictions that will never happen. So I shall save this thread with mine:

- Opens with Joker reveal trailer
- Persona 5 coming this year. Persona 4 Golden coming as well.
- Fire Emblem Three Houses coming this summer. It's HUGE
- Animal Crossing in your VEINS this September. Big villages, more villagers, more personalities
- New top down Zelda, open world again. Similar art style to BotW.
- New 3D Zelda teaser trailer. 2020 baby. Will use assets from BotW
- Monolith Soft steals your heart with a new IP, coming this winter. Female protag, still fantasy with mechs.
- Xenoblade X port is coming and Mira needs to be seen. Sequel teased TBA.
- Monolith isn't done boys and girls. Beaten Kaitos collection coming to Switch including a reboot this summer.
- a trailer starts and you hear a train on rail tracks, including its interior. You hear several footsteps until this sound track starts playing. https://youtu.be/lMd6V1IOJ5k
Suddenly a train gets suplexed. Yes, prepare your Switch for Final Fantasy VI remake.
- Custom Robo revived. Nintendo's own mech series. Focuses on online gameplay and collecting robot parts. Action RPG launching this spring.
- Capcom brings Dante and some pizzas to the Switch and finally announces DMC collection, including DMC4SE.
- That's not all, MH5P is coming to the Switch. More monsters than even MHGU.
- Nintendo vs Capcom revealed. Aims for competitive scene and fan service.
- Okami 2 is also revealed, developed by Platinum.
- Platinum Games also working on a mysterious Murasame Castle game.
- Sakurai appears again and he bamboozles everyone by not talking about Smash, but revealing Kid Icarus Uprising 2.
- Super Mario Maker is announced. With slopes!
- Captain Falcon still doesn't get his own game.
- Sega finally snaps and announces Yakuza remaster 3-5 for Switch. Also both Kiwami and 0 coming.
- Dragon Quest XI S coming also to the West.
- DQB2 as well.
- Dragon Quest III remake in the works. First worldwide simultaneous release in the making.
- Direct ends with Erdrick/Loto reveal trailer.


This isn't much, I can see it really happen.
Persona 4 would be a dream, I want to play it so badly but I don't want to buy a Vita.

So are we not expecting a Zelda 2D announcement because it’s too early?

That, MPt, and the FFs already announced have basically already made my year. I don’t need anything else!

Yes, i think this Direct will be focused on games releasing between now and July, they will save the big fall announcements for the E3 Direct

Hmm, i don't think they'll show gameplay from Joker in Smash. If there is some sort of Persona 5 for Switch, i could see Atlus getting the first call on Joker gameplay for their March event.

Just hoping that AC 3 won't take too much time in the Direct ... given Ubi's slip yesterday that one's all but confirmed.

If there's no other general Direct till E3 then I'm expecting a tease of at least one of the 2D Zelda/Mario Maker tomorrow.

I guess for predictions I've got
  • DQB 2 and/or DQ 11 S western release date
  • MPT reveal and release date
  • Baba Is You release date (indie title)
  • Ultimate DLC reveal at the end
Either that or I think it could be focused on Animal Crossing. I think AC will come out in July right after E3 and their E3 presentation will rely on Pokémon (which will release in November of course). However, I think an April direct about AC is more likely.

Yeah, but is the direct on the 13th or will Nintendo announce it on the 13th?
Just in case you're serious I'll post what I said yesterday. John Harker came in this thread asking if we knew the date of the direct, we said yes the 13th, and he replied yes that's correct. There is no misunderstanding. If they say a direct is coming then it is.
