A recap of today’s Nintendo weirdness

Posted on January 10, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

The news cycle often goes by without anything out of the ordinary. Today was not one of those days. With a surge of hype surrounding an unconfirmed Nintendo Direct, fans are going crazy, and Nintendo even seems to be getting in on the fun.

Everything traces back to the end of November, when an internal EA email leaked. Marketing materials indicated that a Nintendo Direct would be held sometime in January, and Fe would be featured. Fast forward a few weeks later and the date thrown around was specifically January 11.

A couple of things have happened since the EA leak and the rumored January 11 date. Amazon placeholders appeared on the retailer’s website. The same thing happened with GameStop’s internal system this week.

While a new Nintendo Direct was never confirmed, January 11 is the day that everyone has been looking at. Nintendo has never said anything about this officially. Still, the rumor alone is enough to have fans on edge. If a Nintendo Direct were to happen tomorrow, based on precedent, the assumption is that there would be some sort announcement two days prior or one day beforehand at the very latest. Yet as of now, there hasn’t been a peep out of Nintendo… for the most part.

Probably the strangest thing was Nintendo posting this image of Chibi-Robo on fire via Twitter today:


That message has replies from the official Mega Man, Sonic, Doom, Assassin’s Creed, Resident Evil, Obsidian Entertainment, and NIS America Twitter accounts.

Nintendo also posted the following on January 5, which fans are digging for potential Nintendo Direct-related clues, and was re-tweeted this week:


And we can’t forget about this Nintendo Direct tweet from GameStop that was posted and removed on Twitter:


Nintendo NY posted this random message as well:


Nintendo seems to be having some fun with its fans. Again, people are going nuts over the idea of a possible Nintendo Direct happening very soon. This 500+ page thread on ResetERA should tell you that fans are extremely excited, for example.

As for the original rumored date of January 11 for a new Nintendo Direct, will we by some chance be seeing a new presentation tomorrow? Dropping that sort of video isn’t entirely unprecedented, as something similar has happened with Nintendo Direct Minis. However, we do tend to get advance notice from Nintendo these days.

For what it’s worth, those who claim to be in the know aren’t even sure what’s happening. IGN’s Alanah Pearce claims to have heard that a Nintendo Direct would be coming this week, but says that the situation is “weird.”


So… it’s been an interesting day. Fans going crazy, Nintendo tweeting out cryptic images, and insiders unsure about the current status of things. No one can say for sure what’s happening at this point. This week could finish without a Nintendo Direct, or Nintendo may have something to show within the next couple of days. Heck, next week is a possibility as well. We’ll just have to wait and see.

    Resident Evil replying is a promising thing. A RE7 port would be amazing.
    What I think the Mario Odyssey pic is hiding is the “New FE” at the bottom of the screen.
    I think they will reveal the next Fire Emblem on the Switch.

    I’m still crossing my fingers for Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts making a surprise appearance

    • Ailan Hidaz

      Hell yes to everything you said

    • hoteltuesday

      I’m not sure if I should read that “FE” as Fire Emblem or just Fe, since the leaked EA memo said Fe was coming to Switch. Maybe it’s both!

      • Icebergg

        EA will be handling the loot box system for Fire Emblem.

      • Paddy Alfan

        I read the steam garde as nintendo going multi with a few nintendo ip on steam?

    • Auragar

      Nope. Nope. And nope nope.

    • Waji Hemisphere

      That’s far too optimistic for the last 2 I’d say.

  • Blake Good

    I would die happy if these were announced during the Nintendo Direct:

    Folder support and/or the ability to sort icons on Switch home menu
    Virtual Console (All systems from 3DS and Wii U supported)
    Web browser, Netflix, and YouTube
    Animal Crossing Switch
    More indie games like Undertale and A Hat in Time

    • JasonBall

      Does it have to be all of them or would you die happy with just one of them

      • Blake Good

        VC or folder support, at least. Don’t really care about the VOD services and AC can wait until E3, same with the indie games.

        • JasonBall

          You’re gonna die unhappy

          • Blake Good

            Yeah it’s BS that Nintendo can’t do something simple like release an update for Switch that enables folder support or announce the VC service!

          • ChuckyGuy98

            Or, they are busy doing something complex like making the games (which you know 0 knowledge about) to even do something like that and because they aren’t on their knees doing everything you want they are “lazy” people in your eyes because you are that self centered of a douchebag

          • JasonBall

            Folders I agree, but I kind of like the way they’re obviously rethinking how to best leverage their classic games.

    • JJ

      They’re not going to include DS, 3DS and WiiU Virtual Console as those all require a Dual Screen, but I could see an eventual revision to the Switch or its dock to allow the Switch and TV to function like a WiiU and make that possible..in the future.

      • awesomeparadise3

        I believe they were referring to systems on 3DS and Wii U VC. That does still include DS but there are some DS games that could work. Not a ton, but feasible someday. Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon could work for instance.

      • Blake Good

        I know that, I mean NES, SNES, N64, GBA, and possibly DS and Wii.

    • Rafael Bueno

      i just want all Square Enix SNES RPGs on New 3DS and all…

    • Auragar

      None of that will happen.

      • Blake Good

        Because Nintendo doesn’t know how to listen to people.

        • Auragar

          I mean yeah? Duh.

        • ChuckyGuy98

          Just because they won’t make your games after you whine like a little spoiled girl about them doesn’t mean they don’t listen to people. You just want the company to involve around you while it doesn’t.

  • peter

    Birds and sausages, there you have the official clues…

    • jimmy

      And flaming robot

  • Exposer

    Meanwhile at Nintendo…

    Trans; Heck yeah…The evil won
    I put it because the CR tweet looks like this meme.

  • JasonBall

    The replies from game companies never get old whenever there’s Twitter shenanigans. This “character on fire” thing was particularly good

  • GoldenTriforce

    This will be a day for the books for sure.

  • Lily Santos

    New Animal Crossing
    GTA
    Smash Bros

    • Ailan Hidaz

      Or maybe a GTA Animal Crossing cross over

      • Paddy Alfan

        I can finally run over that Tom nook the annoying bassa!

    • Auragar

      No

  • cloud36426

    I’m still not convinced it will be this week. I hope I am wrong, but there is a lot of press and focus on CES this week.

    • JacksonLOVESNintendo

      Yeah I thought that too, but then today happened and now I’m not so sure.

    • It just seems to me they improvised all this nonsense to cover up a mistake someone made, possibly with those leaks.

    • Auragar

      Gaming press and CES tech press are pretty separate. So that has no barring on anything, but no there will not be a direct this week.

  • Logan Wayman

    Let’s see…judging from the companies that replied to the burning Chibi-Robo tweet, I get the feeling we’ll see an update on Bayonetta 3 and some new Sega games, more information on Mega Man 11 and other Capcom games as well as a RE7 announcement, an update on Wolfenstein II and potentially the announcement of Fallout 4, Assassin’s Creed Origins and another Ubisoft game, a South Park double-game pack and Disgaea 6.

    • Auragar

      Don’t read into the replies or you will end up disappointed as they meant nothing.

  • Zeebor

    Clearly we must all rip our pants of and run screaming “Do the Mario!” through the streets.

  • FatAlbert1020

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Nintendo just goes live on all social media accounts without any warning tomorrow. The amount of hype they’ve built on speculation alone is amazing.

    • Auragar

      They won’t.

  • ««H3©TöR»»
    • Auragar

      Almost a guarantee.

  • What are they trying to cover up?

    • Auragar

      Nothing?

  • awng782

    This is the most attention Chibi-Robo has gotten in 20+ years lol

    • Auragar

      Would help if they made a good sequel.

  • GoldenTriforce

    What if we were the Nintendo Direct the whole time?

    • Ektoras Kalderis

      That matrix suff always confuse me. Plz don’t do this to me 🙁

    • Jacob

      the Nintendo Direct was in our hearts this entire time.

    • If by that they aborted a planned Direct because of multiple leaks and replaced it with us being the Direct, I’d believe it.

      • GoldenTriforce

        Last night we were all secretly replaced with cyborgs made by Nintendo. We still have our memories, but our bodies are under their control. Soon we will activate, and the war will commence. This has been their plan since the 80s.

  • DrGreenthumb28

    The companies and pages who are responding to Nintendo has me hyped. Some Super Mario Odyssey DLC would be dope too. Also I want to hear some concrete info about the new online service. Hopefully Nintendo embraces system wide voice chat(with friends only of course).

    • Auragar

      The companies replying means nothing. DLC is possible but they have been announcing that stuff before release recently so I doubt it and the online service was delayed I don’t think we will hear about it officially until E3 at the earliest.

  • StrawhatEevee

    Honestly, I think this dude nailed what is happening right now: https://twitter.com/gravitytheghost/status/951213819480674306

    • Auragar

      Nope. The directs were announced beforehand like always.

      • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

        welp, he was right.

        • Auragar

          Yeah but technically it wasn’t a real but a mini which have been done like this before.

          • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

            It was done to announce chibi robot and tomodachi life in the past

          • Auragar

            I could’ve sworn those were announced in a real direct but sure.

  • Leonel

    Its still possible that either Nintendo randomly uploads the direct or it could happen Friday.

    I have a feeling that’s its possible that a direct was due tomorrow but maybe Nintendo decided to switch the day for it.

    I won’t lie of Nintendo keeps doing this type of things like the chibi-robo on fire type of thing ill be cracking up.

    Also seeing how the developers joined the convo its possible we will see their games during the direct

    • Auragar

      No it isn’t possible they will randomly upload it. And nope it won’t happen this week. As for it being set for one date then changed it is a possibility but I doubt it as there is no reason to do so. And nah I wouldn’t put any thought into the other devs posting replies as meaning anything.

      • Leonel

        I mean Nintendo can honestly do whatever they want if they wanted to post something important randomly then they will. Nintendo can make any changes if they like but we will see what tomorrow looks like. Well I just said that because I remember when Nintendo of America were having fun on Twitter with the erbs rating thing about dabbing and the doom team decided to join as well and a little while later doom for switch was announced

        • Auragar

          Nintendo Directs are always announced beforehand. Always. They won’t change that. And yeah don’t read into that.

          • Leonel

            Yep nintendo “always” announced beforehand and this time it was just released and isn’t the first time they do this.

          • Auragar

            This was not a direct it was a mini.

  • Tiso Spencer

    Those mystery Amazon games, at least for me were cancelled out of my order. Also, GameStop started adding games and had that jump the gun moment. A Direct has to be coming.

  • Tide

    If it’s suppose to be the Direct that lays out the whole year, it makes sense it could be delayed a little. I feel a tad silly but im excited for some more past gen gems. Red Dead Redemption and Evil Within would be great additions.

    • Auragar

      It really doesn’t make sense to be a delay and it isn’t.

      • Tide

        How doesnt it make sense? They were making a presentation that involves several studios. There are lots of different people and companies involve that it could EASILY lead to a mishap or two. If a major 3rd party such as Rockstar wanted to make a presentation and needed another day, they would get it.

        • Auragar

          Pre-recorded at least a few days ahead of time.

          • Tide

            How does that solve the problem? If a studio isn’t ready for the deadline then they delay the Direct or create it without them. It’s not like having a earlier deadline in the same amount of time somehow solves that problem.

            As a sidenote, every Nintendo Direct Mini has always been a precursor to a standard Nintendo Direct. We likely have a standard Nintendo Direct coming in the next few weeks.

          • Auragar

            Yeah after I said that I kind of thought it over and yeah I don’t know what I am talking about here. And eh I dunno about that, I don’t like hoping for things they aren’t confirmed, I mean the January Direct is one thing but that was basically confirmed.

  • nemo37

    I hope all of this hype does not back fire. People have all sorts of unrealistic expectations right now based on so-called leakers. I think it is best to keep expectations in check so as to not get disappointed and actually enjoy the announcements. This way things will not look overly bleak if they underdeliever on unrealistic expectations or, hopefully, we will get even more enjoyment if they do a superb job and overdeliver.

    • DeltaPeng

      I really hope they detail the Nintendo Online Service along with either VC and/or some videogame rental/streaming service

    • GoldenTriforce

      I’m hyped for just the announcement at this point, I couldn’t care less about the actual Direct 😉

    • Auragar

      They will never overdeliver. Though they will definitely underdeliver and I am sure this whole bs will not help with the backlash.

  • Mark

    Yeah, sorry about that. Look, all the fuel drained out of the tank and there wasn’t any gasoline in frontier 1885. We think we’ve got a solution, but it might take a few days until the train comes through. In the meantime, hang tight; it’ll be here before you know it.

  • DeltaPeng

    Based on the Mario Odyssey bird image, you know what be really wild?

    If Nintendo -already- released the Nintendo Direct somewhere into the wild (i.e. youtube or something) from some random username, and it’s up to the fans to find the clues and find the Direct….

    Hmm…wait…could it be..?!?!?

    • Auragar

      Nope.

  • Randolph

    I got an email from Amazon about my prime 4 pre order. It just said that the release date was pending. I pre ordered it in June I think.

  • Roto Prime

    My money is on a new Chibi-Robo amiibo that is fireproof…..or a new Chibi-Robo game for Nintendo Switch that takes place in new Donk city…..

    • Auragar

      No and no.

  • Stuart

    Thanks for the recap, Nintendo is well aware of those stupid rumors and fake leaks and took the chance to go into full troll mode today.

  • Sir Dippingsauce
    • Auragar

      Pikmin 4 was Hey! Pikmin. And nah AC seems like an E3 thing.

      • Lance Devon

        Hey! Pikmin was debunked as being Pikmin 4.

        • Auragar

          No, no it hasn’t.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Yes, in an interview Miyamoto (after Hey Pikmin was announced) reiterated that Pikmin 4 is in development. I don’t have time to look for it right now but if someone else did that would be great, it should have been covered on this site somewhere.

          • Auragar

            It was only posted on fake news Eurogamer.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Yeah no this isn’t worth my time.

          • Lance Devon

            Prove otherwise.

          • Auragar

            Miyamoto: Pikmin 4 is basically done y’all.
            *Couple months later Hey! Pikmin releases.*

            Done.

          • Lance Devon

            Someone you paraphrases in an online forum.

            Clearly not trolling and definately not fake news.

            You must be a riot at parties.

          • Auragar

            I don’t go to parties.

  • I can’t begin to guess what’s going on on Nintendo’s end, but the pic of what looks like Chibi Robo lighting itself on fire cracks me up. XD

    • Auragar

      Trolling.

  • Crimson Hat

    Nintendos Twitter account says they’re listening and they clearly are. They’re sending us on a wild goose chase and sitting back laughing at our ravings.

    • Jack Red

      Must be Masahiro Sakurai’s doing.

  • Auragar

    They aren’t “having fun” they are trolling. Anyways no no direct will happen this week. And “insiders” are basically useless. The direct if there actually is one which everything says there will be and Nintendo would be shooting themselves in the foot if they didn’t will be next week. My thought about all this nonsense is Fire Emblem. The Chibi-Robo is him on FIRE the Mario Odyssey pic has the “FE” in the corner. Heck even the EA thing could be a hint with Fe while, Fe is an actual EA published game it is also the same initials as Fire Emblem. Fire Emblem is also a give me for a Nintendo Direct whenever the next one happens so that wouldn’t be all that weird to be honest. At this point though I don’t even know. Nintendo is definitely handling this very poorly.

    • GoldenTriforce

      The vibe I’m getting is that either A. there is no Direct tomorrow and this is all making fun of the leaks, B. There was but it got delayed and so they are having some fun in the mean time, or C. They saw leaks and/or the overreaction to said leaks and decided (specifically the social media people decided) to have some fun with people as a repercussion. Either way, I find this all hilarious. Nintendo normally doesn’t do stuff like this, even though they are lighthearted. I wish more companies would do stuff like this every once in a while, it helps to show that yes, human run these things, especially their social media accounts. People seem to forget that actual people are reading those posts, and this will certainly help people remember.

      • Auragar

        There is no direct tomorrow I 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000% guarantee it. And I mean sure it shows they are human but it also shows that humans are trash.

        • GoldenTriforce

          I know, I said there might not be a direct. Think what ever you like about it, but personally I find it funny. This is all based on a leak which no one should have believed without evidence. People really need to take things like this less seriously. There was never any official statement that there would be a direct tomorrow. Could there be one, sure, but until then people need to relax. I’ve just been finding all of this insanity pretty hilarious.

          • Auragar

            I wouldn’t mind there being no direct tomorrow because yeah it was never said officially that there would be my problem is how Nintendo is telling everybody to go f*** themselves and trolling them.

          • GoldenTriforce

            That never happened, they just posted a picture. If anything they did that mock people who are overreacting. Could they be doing this to undermine leakers? Maybe, but until that is officially confirmed or unconfirmed, don’t jump the gun. This was done as a joke, and almost everyone realized that. You can complain tomorrow but there is no reason to worry about something as stupid as an image until tomorrow.

          • Auragar

            Why do I have to wait until tomorrow for trolling they’ve been doing since the beginning of the year.

          • GoldenTriforce

            What trolling have they done since the beginning of the year?
            I meant to wait to see if the leaks were real or not. Until then, if you don’t like the trolling, just do something else, its better than worrying over a dumb image of chibi-robo.

          • Auragar

            They posted the stupid a bird pic on the 5th. And I already know the rumours are fake. Even if they weren’t trolling is just not how you handle your pr.

          • GoldenTriforce

            That was for national bird day. The reason they retweeted it was people on ResetERA specifically asked for it to be retweeted as a joke. Its well known that people from Nintendo browse boards such as ResetERA and reddit.

          • Auragar

            It was for trolling as well with the tweet text and now being retweeted.

          • Lance Devon

            Everything from Twitter is trolling.

            Get used to it, puddin’.

          • Auragar

            Nah. I will not get used to it.

          • Lance Devon

            Then stomp your feet and complain that people should be fired (ironically within theme) because you cannot take some fun from a post which has more than a few devs hopped on the wagon.

            Guess they too need to be fired for bad PR.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Also, a large number of major gaming twitter accounts responded jokingly to the tweet, so either the entire industry is bad at PR, or what Nintendo is doing is fine. I’m not going to be the one to judge, I don’t do PR, but I’m leaning to it just being a dumb joke. If you take it so seriously that it offends you, then thats kind of what they are making fun of. Relax and see what happens tomorrow, and stop worrying about the tweet if it annoys you so much.

          • Auragar

            The entire industry is bad at pr that isn’t a secret. And no need to wait for NOTHING to happen tomorrow.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Okay. Then just stop worrying about the tweet. If it doesn’t affect you, and it won’t have a dramatic effect on the world (it won’t) then worrying about it will just cause stress. And also don’t worry about what people comment here. That is also unnecessary.

          • Auragar

            I am not going to stop worrying over a COMPANY who is supposed to be PROFESSIONAL acting like a stupid troll.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Well then I give up. Do what you want, I really shouldn’t be concerned.

          • Auragar

            I will thank you.

          • Auragar

            Yes yes they do. A company should not be using pr to tell people to f*ck themselves.

          • Lance Devon

            Wendy’s would be immediately boring.

          • Auragar

            Don’t care.

          • Lance Devon

            Wouldn’t those who allowed them to exercise bad PR should also be fired for enabling such tragic and belittling circumstances upon the consumer at large be fired too?

          • Auragar

            I mean maybe. They could always just be blissfully unaware a lot of higher ups don’t even really know about social media which is one of the reasons they have other people do stuff like that for them.

          • Lance Devon

            They hired them, that would be grounds for their responsibility is it not?

          • Auragar

            I don’t believe that somebody should be responsible for another’s actions unless they are directly involved with said person’s actions.

          • Lance Devon

            Hiring them is essentially directly responsible for their actions. It’s why they ha e such tiered work positions. Overseers.

          • Auragar

            Unless they were actively monitoring what the person was doing I see no reason to involve others.

          • Lance Devon

            Then it is their own lack of concern for their responsibilities that they were not monitored or reviewed before the posts went up is it not?

          • Auragar

            If they were supposed to monitor and review the posts yeah.

          • Lance Devon

            Then why are you not upset with them as well?

          • Auragar

            We don’t know that Nintendo monitors the moron who posts that stupid crap.

          • Lance Devon

            So you wish to feign ignorance to their responsibilities? Isn’t that just as bad as allowing them to post said stupid crap?

          • Auragar

            Not as far as I am concerned.

          • Lance Devon

            So their irresponsible actions don’t bother you?

          • Auragar

            Nope. That is not something for me to be concerned about.

          • Lance Devon

            Then wouldn’t the one’s Twitter a tions shouldn’t be something of concern? Even though they garner nearly 300 new followers?

  • Aiddon

    What’s happening: Nintendo is trolling because journos jump the gun way too often

    • GoldenTriforce

      *leakers, these were people posting on forums, not journalists working for actual companies.

    • Auragar

      Well I agree they are trolling but I don’t think it is because of any outside thing, the person in charge of their Twitter is just a c**t. I would fire them if I were in charge because that is NOT how you do pr.

  • Auragar

    You are thinking wrong.

  • Kyoshilonehearted

    Or Nintendo could just say something and clear up any and all confusion. All of this ‘fun’ kinda comes across as arrogant to me. “We are Nintendo, we are so good that we don’t need to announce any date for anything ever!” Almost like the Switch success is already going to their ego.

  • Lance Devon
    • Auragar

      Your not Nintendo’s pr so I mean I guess you could be fired from posting anywhere?

      • Lance Devon

        I mean, I did troll. And that seems to be a broad blanket to warrant a removal of someone’s position.

        • Auragar

          Seems like a perfectly viable reason to me when a company is supposed to be professional and not literally tell their fans to f*ck off.

          • Lance Devon

            What part of their post dictates they can bugger off? Where is your outrage for trolling in general?

          • Auragar

            The entire thing. My outrage for trolling comes from the fact that trolling is god awful and it is worse that a company who is supposed to be professional is pulling it.

          • Lance Devon

            So where is your outrage for my trolling? Why haven’t you asked for my job on a platter? Have you asked for people’s accounts to be reprimanded, such as Smashified, for their own trolling (like Smashified’s Rayman?)

          • Auragar

            You don’t work for Nintendo.

          • Lance Devon

            So it’s only an outrage if Nintendo trolls?

          • Auragar

            If somebody acting as the mouthpiece for a major company trolls.

          • Lance Devon

            But did you just not say that all trolling is despicable? What makes mine less so than Nintendo’s mouthpiece?

          • Auragar

            Your aren’t a professional speaking to fans. Trolling in general shouldn’t happen but it is far worse when a professional does it.

          • Lance Devon

            So it is apparently only offensive when Nintendo does it?

          • Auragar

            No any professional.

          • Lance Devon

            I am a professional in my field (13 years) and I trolled, our field just doesn’t have “fans.” So where is my reprimand?

          • Auragar

            *shrug*

  • James Fox

    Look fellas, As much as i REALLY do want a Nintendo Direct to happen this week, It’s likely not to happen.. at this point we’re griping, whining, sulking and whinging over virtually nothing

    That doesn’t mean there won’t be A Nintendo Direct this month
    It could be next week, Mid-January or before the month is over – who knows?

    Patience is the key when Directs are concerned
    Don’t get me wrong, It’s fun to speculate with rumors but when you rely on them too much to the point that you think it’s real than find out (far too late) that it’s not – then it’s no longer fun anymore isn’t it? Don’t you think?

    Now let’s be good sports and let’s use some patience and common sense rather than be worked up over some troll tweets and rubbish rumors

    For patience sake, there’s 2 budget Switch eShop game coming next week (both of decent quality i might add)… those are: Oh…Sir!! The Insult Simulator ($1.99) and Oh…Sir!! The Hollywood Roast ($2.99)
    Those will tide ya over until the eventual January Direct that does happen

    And to conclude, Here’s a fine fellow with some advice

    • Auragar

      There definitely won’t be one this week there isn’t any “likely” about it. Though yes there could still be one this month, but if nothing is announced by Tuesday next week it is over, there won’t be a direct in the last week of the month. Rumours are never to be believed. Patience and common sense don’t factor into the sh*tiness of Nintendo’s trolling. Who cares about those trash games? And hahaha no no they won’t. And to conclude rumours are trash but Nintendo is being sh*tty and that has nothing to do with rumours but them being unprofessional.

    • Kyoshilonehearted

      Even if a Direct happens at all, it is going to be nothing but a disappointment anyways. Nintendo doesn’t know how to think of the bigger picture.

      • James Fox

        Gamers themselves to blame for that just plainly on believing such rumors without any lick of skepticism or common sense

  • Auragar
    • Jack Red

      That is fake.

      • Auragar

        No it is totally real. My uncle works at Nintendo.

        • Jack Red

          You complain that Nintendo is being unprofessional just with trolling their fans all in good fun, yet you create a fake Nintendo tweet that drops the S bomb and the tweet itself sounds even less professional than their own tweets considering that Nintendo aren’t known for actually dropping swears out of their own people.

          • Auragar

            Reggie has swore at events. But anyways. I didn’t make anything. This is a real tweet. They must’ve deleted it.

          • Jack Red

            You seriously expect me to believe that?

          • Auragar

            You don’t have to believe anything if you don’t want to but the truth is what the truth is.

          • Kyoshilonehearted

            Oh but it is suppose to be ‘fun’ right? Oh wait, nobody likes it if we do that, but if the big N does it, it is somehow comedic genius.

          • Auragar

            Hrm?

          • Jack Red
          • Auragar

            Must be why they took down the previous one.

          • Jack Red

            You are aware that tweet I posted is a fake right?

          • Auragar

            What? No way. That is impossible. It says Nintendo and has the little icon with the check and everything. D:

          • Jack Red

            I did the same thing you did. Took a Nintendo of America tweet used Google Chrome’s “Inspect Element” feature to edit the text and remove the image linked to it.

          • Auragar

            But I didn’t do anything like that, mine was a real tweet.

          • Jack Red

            Sure it was. And so is mine. Do you honestly expect me to believe that you posted a legit tweet from Nintendo dropping the S bomb and literally saying the exact same thing you’ve pretty much spammed on this? “Nintendo is being unprofessional by being a troll.” And “The employee should be fired.”

          • Auragar

            You just said yours was fake though, how can I trust you if you keep flip flopping like this. And I mean like I said you can believe what you want but it is the truth so you do what you want.

          • Jack Red

            Seriously? Have you never heard of sarcasm Aura? Now I know for a fact that you’re being a troll yourself.

          • Auragar

            Sure I’ve heard of sarcasm but it is hard to tell over the internet, and nah I never troll.

          • Jack Red

            Really now? Okay then Mr. Hypocrite.

          • Auragar

            I’m not a hypocrite.

          • Jack Red

            Oh really? Complain about a company being a troll, and then you suddenly start being a troll yourself.

          • Auragar

            I haven’t trolled though.

          • Jack Red

            Then what do you call what you’re doing?

          • Auragar

            Replying to somebody?

  • Wolverine442

    I’m gonna guess A donkey Kong in development, news on VC, cloud saving SMO dlc. Updates on Metroid, yoshi and Kirby.

    • Auragar

      No. No. No. No. Yes. Yes.

  • Padre

    There wont be new things from Nintendo 2018. 2017 was a busy year, so they take one year off.

    • Auragar

      Wouldn’t surprise me if that was Nintendo’s brain dead thought process.

      • ronin4life

        They aren’t Sony lol

        • Auragar

          Whaddya mean?

  • キロ

    Are people okay?

  • Locky Mavo

    What a frustratingly, fun time it’s been. Love how they’ve been messing with everybody, especially the usual “I have leaked info from a reliable source” people. But seriously, when is the direct and what’s January’s “big game” if it’s going even have one

  • MagcargoMan

    Seeing LKD trying to get attention after being completely wrong about the Switch Presentation is just sad.
