So finally, Super Smash Bros 4 will have its own Nintendo Direct. As you can see, it will take place on Tuesday, 6pm EST time/3PM PST. I guess for this it’ll be like 25-30 minutes long. Well it could be nearly an hour but I doubt it. So, of course I’ll have to jump in and predict what will be revealed in this direct…but with a Fire Emblem flavor!
1) Sigurd is a new character
AH HELL YEAH, MY MAIN MAN, MY AVATAR REP, HE NOW IS THE MAN, WOOHOO YEAH!!!
…Ok let me get more probable selections and stuff.
1) There won’t be a new Fire Emblem character announced in the Nintendo Direct
Don’t worry, I easily expect to be wrong on this. And of course, despite this being the case, I still expect there to be a new FE character announced for Smash. I just expect it at E3 believe it or not.
Why? Because conversely, that’s when I expect information on Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem. Might as well tie it in with that. Of course, hell if I know what other characters from other Nintendo franchises are being championed to be included in SSB4, but maybe they’ll take more of an importance than a new Fire Emblem character.
2) We will get a glimpse of the stage for the Wii U though.
Kind of like how we saw the stage for Super Smash Bros Brawl in the first trailer, I expect we’ll see that at some point. Whether we recognize it, who knows, but it’ll be there. You can count on it!!!
Non-FE related info
3) WE WILL FINALLY GET A RELEASE DATE
I’m still worried about this thing getting pushed back to 2015 (because that’d be so Nintendo & Sakurai), but if all the cards are right, Nintendo will announce the game’s gonna get here by Christmas. They will then say that demos will be available at E3, and many people will get to play it. Oh yeah.
4) There will be more veterans announced for the game!
I’d hazard a guess and say like 3 more veterans from prior SSB4 games get revealed, but whatever the case, I expect to see a few of the smash stalwarts that we’ve seen in prior games be included in the trailer.
Also, all the veterans who’ve appeared without trailers since will most likely be included in it too!
5) Three new challengers are approaching!
Could be more, but I’ll just stick to how many was announced at E3 last year, and that was three. What those three are…well, the more Nintendo savvy people can point that out.
Your Turn For Predictions
Ok, I’ve made my predictions for what’s gonna take place tomorrow. Oh, and I might even consider livetweeting it (maybe, if I’m not napping). But I assume some of you while also being FE fans are also into other games as well, so share what you think will take place in the direct.
…Why yes, Iwata farting is also a possibly too.
