Sakurai: I loved Persona 5 and gushed about it in Famitsu and was so excited about adding Joker I literally went to Atlus HQ and hugged Morgana. So I decided to not talk about the Smash update and just dump it on social media. (Laughs)
For me it's less that I absolutely don't think there will be a Smash Direct, it's that I won't find one worth watching. None of the stuff they have in the pipeline besides "Brave" (who is Erdrick) interests me.
Make a prediction, if your prediction doesn't come to pass then you have to change your avatar to the avatar of the organizer's choice for some period of time. I'm rainbow Wolf for three days because I bet on a Direct for last week.
Could an "out of nowhere" game announcement happen at a possible April direct? I'm guessing not first party but third party maybe? My guess would be Devil may Cry HD Collection for August release. From Namco we could get Code Vein announcement after God Eater 3. Code Vein is being delayed for undisclosed reason, maybe they're doing a Switch port?
Took long enough for us to get sorting options, zooming is a neat accessibility feature (especially for a potential Switch Mini), transferring specific game saves to another system is cool, being able to dig up older news articles is neat and the Parental options for VR implies we might see a lot more use for it.
But they messed up by not adding a Poochy avatar, so the entire thing is a 0/10
