I wish we would get something around Animal Crossing anniversary, but it doesn’t look like that’s gonna happen. 😞
You will get A Blooming Announcement and you will like it.


Tbh the name of this event still sounds so weird to me, but maybe that's because English is not my first language. What's the announcement? Why call a 30-day long Spring event that without actually... announcing anything?

Without insiders the conversation is carried by the likes of Dark Cloud, the frog guy and Jigglypuff. Burn it all to the ground. Scorched earth.

No Home-Run Contest though. That's a shame, guess we'll have to wait even longer.
I mean, I don't know if I'd go that far yet. It could be in a different sub menu somewhere.

Home Run Contest stuff was datamined alongside Stage Builder stuff a few weeks ago after all.

A Direct has to be coming soon.

- Joker and the 3.0 update are coming before the end of April, so it's happening at some point in the next few weeks.
- Then we had the finished Joker render on the Best Buy website.
- Best Buy then lists a bunch of new Switch games in their internal database, indicating they're preparing for release.
- Now, Nintendo released a new ad for Smash, which (accidentally) reveals a new game mode, meaning this ad is designed to coincide with the 3.0 update. I can't see them releasing something like this 2-3 weeks before the update.

It could certainly happen next week, but given that this is also Reggie's last week at NoA, it just feels like it would be right.

Yup, but still I think it is kind of strict, sure leaks should have proof, but if I just say what I heard and automatically I'm getting message that I need to proof or their team will be forced to do something with my account, totally out of way in my opinion
I thought you claimed you had inside info and was going to be banned? How come you're still here? I'm not asking for you to be banned, but maybe there's truth to what you're saying.

Ok betting time! If there is no direct this week, then Dark Cloud is banned for 30 days. But if there is a direct this week, then Dark Cloud will be forbidden from Resetera for 30 days. Which side are you on?

Hey, so...

Some of you may have seen that I was on Kinda Funny Games saying I didn't think Persona 5 was coming to Switch. I'm afraid to tell you all that, despite Best Buy (lol), I still feel that way. I think Persona 5 Royale is a PS4 game, and I'm pretty sure that P5S is something else entirely.

I guess it's possible that a P5 Switch port is coming separately, and it's also possible that the people I talk to aren't omniscient, which is why I don't like to definitely declare "Persona 5 is not coming to Switch," but, look, don't let these "insiders" get your hopes up too much is all I'm saying.

I'm honestly more disappointed in the fact that Atlus seems to be milking P5 even more than 4.

Persona 5: The Sadness

Because that's what we're all going to feel when it's announced to be a gacha-style baseball spinoff releasing exclusively on the Vita.

I question who you’re talking to that makes you this confidant despite everything that’s happened.(obviously I know you can’t tell.)

Must have a lot of faith in them.

Out of curiosity if Royal or S does end up on Switch would that make you second guess your sources or would you just assume it was a one time hiccup?

Is there a reason why you think Persona 5 for Switch showed up on Best Buy?

Hello Mr. Schreier. do you have information about Retro studios ?
Im not asking about leaks or something like that, but it has been years since their last game came out, and the news have been almost non existant.
Not to mention the whole Starfox GP debacle.
Thank you for your hard work.

Ya forgot the P5 dancing game.
And when you factor in the inevitable fighting game, they're already pretty even with more to come (with the P5AG and P5M domain names).

What's happened, though? A Best Buy listing that anyone could have entered? A bunch of Twitter rumors getting everyone's hopes up? Persona 5 S having an S in it?

I'm very confident that P4 Royal is PS4-only and that P5S is something else entirely. (I've heard it's another genre but am not 100% sure. No idea what platforms.) I'm sharing this because I hate to see people getting their hopes up for something that I'm pretty sure isn't true, and it's frustrating to keep seeing "insiders" spread rumors that turn out to be false. It's possible that Persona 5 is coming to Switch separately, which would make me very happy, but it's not one of those two things, despite what Twitter insiders have been telling you.

Some people think the “A Link to the Past” entry could be a placeholder for Cadence of Hyrule, though I’m not sold on that theory myself.

As the Best Buy thing was happening, I thought it was leading to something but when A Link to the Past in the listing I dropped to 50/50 of it being something or nothing. Persona and Metroid Prime seem logical but I don't know what A Link the Past could be which makes me think it is all likely a mistake. My best guess it that they will bundle A Link to the Past with Link's Awakening or maybe have it as a pre-order bonus.
