  1. FE16 "leaks"

    I don't think you really understand what I'm saying here. FE Switch isn't the kind of game they'd want to announce so closely to its release and can't be compared to the latest Pokémon games. They're on different levels of marketability. Like, there's a reason why a game such as FE Echoes was announced and released in a shorter time frame than other games in the series. Because it's not a major title that was projected to sell as much. Same with Pokémon USUM. Fire Emblem making its debut on the latest Nintendo home console with a brand new title is a huge deal to them, so logically they should handle its marketing accordingly by showing it off sooner. Revealing the game during the summer then releasing it in the fall makes little sense in comparison.

    Thanks, I was actually not aware of this. I really don't think the FE Switch reveal will be at this E3 though, since I feel that would end up too close to when it's supposed to release. I find it makes a lot more sense logistically to reveal it earlier in the year, then show it at E3 again later.
  3. FE16 "leaks"

    FE Fates had already been shown off in two Nintendo Directs before being featured at E3. To say it was announced there is pretty misleading. There's never been precedent of Nintendo using E3 to reveal a Fire Emblem game, and I don't believe this will be different with FE Switch either.

    This is actually what I've been referring to, yes. Apologies for giving the impression it was a literal Direct or that this would be happening at a later time. Technically speaking my information is still right, as this is essentially a video presentation like a Direct and it happens on the 18th in Japan time (where I got my info from). This won't pertain to Fire Emblem and is more for casual audiences. You'll see what I mean soon. They'll provide another look at this next month.

    It'd be interesting to see them go over an entire year without providing a real update about FE Switch. I feel that alone sends the message that they're working really hard on it and know fans have high expectations. After all, it's the first Fire Emblem on home consoles in a decade. A lot has changed since then, so the jump is sure to be huge. The day they'll be ready to talk about it is going to be a very important one.

    Some of my information has recently been updated, so I thought it would be important to share that here. Feel free to relay this to other topics. In particular, what I'd like to provide a tip about is that, despite what I've been suggesting before, the next Nintendo Direct happening in a few days will not feature FE Switch either. It'll be for other things and is meant to be another small one. However, I did manage to find out that the next big Direct is due for February, and as an educated guess, I'd wager that's when they'll probably reveal FE Switch after all. It would mean that the trend of Fire Emblem games getting shown off in January would break, but oh well. Hopefully this information will be considered if or when any new rumors pop up soon.

    I personally don't keep track of this so I can't give a solid answer, but I have noticed a number of people regularly bring this up a few days before a Nintendo Direct happens. An example would be this post on Twitter which mentions the empty space, only to be confirmed a few days later when a Nintendo Direct for Dragon Quest XI debuted. So there is precedent.
  8. Nintendo Direct Mini 2018-01-11

    Thanks, it's appreciated. I did get involved here already knowing the risks it could entail, but even in the worst case scenario, I'm not particularly interested in concerning myself over what others think of me. I've been in the know for a while, but I think these blatantly false rumors that have popped up lately are getting a little out of hand, so I've chosen to step up to help elucidate what should actually be anticipated. To be clear, I honestly don't know that much about the new Fire Emblem, and I don't expect myself to learn much else in advance, but for the time being, I do think people should still be on their toes for news soon, and should try to be more dismissive about rumors in general.

    This is amazing, thanks so much for doing this. Looking forward to the future updates.

    I agree that the 2017 FE Direct being missing on the page may or may not mean anything. It could very well be just a mistake, but I also don't feel its significance can be ruled out for sure either. At the very least I think it's worth keeping in mind for now.

    To answer how I know, let's just say that I happen to live near the grapevine.
  12. Nintendo Direct Mini 2018-01-11

    There is another Nintendo Direct one week from today.
  13. Nintendo Direct Mini 2018-01-11

    I don't think the Wii U Mario Tennis will be ported, since a) it was poorly received (and rightfully so), and b) they've already announced a new Mario Tennis which can effectively replace it. There's not really anything for them to gain by releasing the Wii U one again. But yeah, it's safe to say you are indeed seeing their plan in motion.
  14. FE16 "leaks"

    To reiterate, the tweet is only really saying that news about FE Switch will come later. You're welcome to infer that it may be through a Fire Emblem Direct, but it is not an idea that the tweet is particularly pushing for. Also, I've not followed this thread enough to know who is Miss Leaker or what they've said, but what I can already say is that the only leak or rumor I'm acquainted with but am not able to denounce is the original one about the gothic/horror theme and everything else relating to that. I don't know enough about FE Switch to say for sure whether or not any of it is true. That said, I personally doubt that it is, but this is just my own take on it.
  15. Nintendo Direct Mini 2018-01-11

    It has indeed been a long while since the last Nintendo Direct in a Mini/Micro format, and I think it is a good observation to point out that they never actually serve as a major type of presentation that Nintendo regularly holds every few months. In other words, it would be correct to say that what was shown today does not appear to be that, and it is still due to happen.
