Well, it's finally happened . Nintendo has us on such exciting thoughts that the announcement of a announcement feels like an event in itself. Although here at NL Towers we avoid reporting on baseless rumors and idle forum speculation, now is the time to indulge our inner fanboys and girls.
The press release tells us that we need to prepare about 35 minutes of information about the upcoming Nintendo Switch title, including new details on Fire Emblem: Three Houses & # 39 ;. Although we are huge fans of the franchise, it is not the crowd pleaser that is Super Smash Bros. ̵
Let's take a quick look at what we I think Nintendo has in store for us tonight.
Info and dates for Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Daemon X Machina … and Everything Else In 2019
While Fire Emblem in Press Release Given a name, we expect most of the things planned for 2019 to get fixed release dates. Yoshi's Crafted World could get a check-in, even though March 29 sneaks quickly and we would be disappointed if it took more than a few minutes. Updates to known quantities such as Luigi's Mansion 3 Daemon X Machina and Animal Crossing would not hurt. If Bayonetta 3 is far enough to provide some material (or at least a teaser), we would be very happy if Platinum's witch progresses.
Persona 5 Announcement And Some Third-Party Ports
The upcoming joker appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate makes this a sure thing for Switch, and we can not wait for to see how the console handles Persona . Elsewhere, the rumors are that they are not rumors regarding Assassin's Creed III Remastered though Nintendo and Ubisoft would be super-BFFs if that were not the case. The dates of Dragon Quest XI S and Final Fantasy VII would be appealing. Spyro Reignited is rumored to be finally and it would not surprise us if a few other third-party games jump to Switch – Atlus Catherine for example.

Metroid Prime Trilogy HD Deluxe Apology Edition
Sure! No? Sure!
No, who does not want that? It's a breeze after this excuse video and Nintendo needs to keep the Metroid flame running. We would also switch to Metroid: Samus Returns – "available shortly after this presentation" would be nice, ta.
We're still a bit giddy at the prospect of a sincerely good, brand new Pokémon RPG that you can play on TV, making an update to the upcoming Switch Edition would be excellent. In truth, it will, of course, in due course get a bunch of your own directs – and we're not completely convinced that this will not slip in 2020 – but a quick visit to the Game Freak offices chatting to a mountain of Pokémon stuffed animals in front of a camera, he would be dandy . There is always room for other delicacies – a Pokémon Picross or such a side to bridge us while we wait for the big one.
Next round of smash amiibo, plus DLC News
We've seen them, we want them, we have to catch them all! It would not surprise us to hear fixed dates for the upcoming releases as well as some new ones. It is possible that we also get information on the second DLC character, although it is hard to say that Smash was not sentenced to death. Do not tell anyone, but we could probably live without it tomorrow.
SNES Games for Nintendo Switch Online
Nintendo's relative silence in January suggests that they've made something special. Also, SNES games on the Nintendo Switch online service are not a revolutionary idea but we would pick them up and it would be great to see the company's plans for the subscription service, whatever they mean
A Wii U Port
Choose your choice. Pikmin 3 Rumors have been circulating, as well as some other details from a poster on ResetEra that the directors have accurately predicted. Direct predictions always sound somewhat suspicious to us – there are only so many weeks of the year, and if you look at the pattern of the previous announcements, you are sometimes right. Given the election, we would prefer Super Mario 3D World to Pikmin 3 but we do not spit. The same source mentions Super Mario Maker 2 Boxboy a new 2D Zelda and Pokémon . As we said earlier, we would bet that Pokémon would come by Direct for hours, but none of the others sounds implausible.
We will not mention the game based on & # 39; brother & # 39; rhymes tree & # 39 ;, but there is usually something that can unbalance you. The tongues falter after Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto tweeted twice the director's messages. There is Whisper which Harmonix may have to announce. Reggie Fils-Amiibo rumors persist.
Okay, the last one is an idiot, but the gloves are out! Whether Nintendo Wargroove 's success and recalled his conceptions, how was really made with a new Advance Wars or it's time to reveal anything round switch Mini or something unimaginable like Microsoft Forza and Rare Replay to the switch – we'd bet there'll be a surprise nobody has thought of. And who does not love a surprise that is now available now on Nintendo eShop?
That's what we expect – nothing out of the ordinary. What do you want? Let us know in the comments and see you tomorrow at 22:00 GMT / 23:00 CET / 14:00 PTZ / 17:00 ET … and every hour in between for all sorts of adorable Nintendo Direct goodness. Finally!
