NINTENDO DIRECT - 11/12 PREDICTIONS
I wanted to kick things off with a list of predictions for today's Nintendo Direct at 5 pm EST. This Direct will be discussing Wii U and 3DS titles. This is my first list and these are just guesses. Feel free to comment with other predictions below! Thanks guys!
- •Remembering Satoru IwataThis is the first Nintendo Direct since President Satoru Iwata's passing this past July. Iwata played a huge role in these broadcasts, and Nintendo is ready to take the stage again.
- •Star Fox ZeroWhile the game has been under the radar, Star Fox Zero has an expected release for the first quarter. To be honest, I forgot that this game was still coming out considering I haven't heard of anything since the delay...
- •Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess HDI really don't know what to say. The leak is looking pretty accurate. I won't be surprised if they don't discuss it, but it's going to be hard covering this one up.
- •Super Smash Bros. DLCYAY MORE CHARACTERS AND STAGES! Those of you who watched the last broadcast probably voted for the next Nintendo character to show up on the roster (I still want the REAL Chrom btw...). I'll admit right now that I put in Paper Mario as a character. Before I get the CLONE crap, he is more unique than the 2 currently in the game. Could be interesting 😊 My big prediction for the next character is Shovel Knight. The amiibo rumors are all over the place and some have been confirmed.
- •Super Smash Bros. Amiibo WaveMight as well stick with the Smash Bros. topic! Releasing the Roy, Lucas, and Ryu amiibos will happen soon since the Super Smash Bros. collection is almost finished. Confirming the release of the next wave of amiibos should happen.
- •Mario and Luigi - Paper JamYes, the Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi series are crossing over. Oddly enough, we don't know much about the game, and Japan and Europe are getting an earlier release than North America. I love the idea of these series coming together, but I'm still on the sinking ship of hoping for a new Paper Mario title for the Wii U or 3DS.
- •SMT X Fire EmblemAnother crossover and another game releasing in Japan and Europe before the end of the year, I'm hoping for more information on the SMT X Fire Emblem title coming to the Wii U. This isn't just a crossover between game series, but also completely different companies. Because one of the titles is one of my all time favorites and the other I (literally) chucked the game out of my apartment, I'm really curious to see how these two will mesh.
- •Fire Emblem - FatesBased on the last topic, you'll figure out which series I'm absolutely in love with - I've been riding the Fates hype train since January and I'm not ashamed to admit that. Like many fans, I'll be perfectly content with just hearing a release date. The game itself is huge, so expect two separate games along with a DLC. Hopefully, the North American release will happen around February/March.
