I mean, what else would it be?


Outside of Dread, which has been getting info shoveled out hand over fist, Nintendo doesn't have any holiday titles to give their own presentation to.
Maybe its just a short Presentation of Game Boy on NSO?

Why they wouldn’t toss those in the Direct idk. But I don’t wanna make an assumption.

The day is saved!
I mean, considering the NSO anni is this week, I kinda doubt they'd push that off if that were the case.
Alright yeah I got nothing for that. Tbh I totally forgot the anniversary was this week.

That's a thing.? Bah extra steps mumble grumble
From what I've learned in my internet security class, Bluetooth works by searching for a Bluetooth signal, any Bluetooth signal, at all times (it may not search while it's currently linked to something, but don't quote me on that), so as long as you can produce a Bluetooth signal, you're in.

Unless something's changed about it, there's literally no security in Bluetooth.

EDIT: Since the feature is only supposed to be for audio, Nintendo could have made it so that Bluetooth can only do stuff with the intended audio functions, but I dunno if there's any way of knowing that, at least not right off the bat.

Okay, after looking it up.

The Respect the Elders day falls on every third Monday of September. That means the 20th.

Autumnal Equinox day celebrates when daytime gets shorter than nighttime. This falls on the 23rd, or Thursday.

So as far as I can tell only Monday and Thursday are occupied. Its not out of the question for a Presentation then.

That was basically what I was saying, minus the Autumn part. I am sure we could still get a Direct next week.

[Tournament event] "Call more and more! Assist figures" will be held for 3 days from 9/17 (Friday)! This is a tournament where many assist figures appear. The more you win, the more luxurious spirits you get. #Smash Bros SP

Dark Samus was better represented in the assist trophy than she is as an identical clone.
It's a shame Saki's gone.

That's about the extent of my opinions.

Wow
Waluigi isn't even in that picture
Toad pushed himself up from the ground. He was tired... He had already worked a full day plucking turnips. Now miles from home, his body starting to ease, he narrows his eyes.

"Aw, **** no," he exclaims!

Tune in next time for another episode of How Toad caught up with Waluigi and bodied him so hard he had to miss the photo op for the tournament.

I miss the Jill AT tbh. Drill Dozer was a lot of fun, and making a GBA game with rumble was a super interesting idea. She wasn't really a unique AT gameplay-wise in Brawl, but I miss having her as more than just a Spirit.

clearly she was removed so that she can be CP11

This late into the pass, I think this is the final nail in the coffin for any AT upgrade hopefuls.
How is having a tourney about an item proof that an assist trophy won't be playable? They're just showcasing something that's currently in the game. It's just as much of a leap in logic to say that Sakurai made this tournament because an assist trophy is being upgraded soon, so it made him think of this.

It's literally just an event where you can use an item, nothing more.

I'm just gonna say this


If a fanmade trailer for Waluigi in Smash can rack up 1.1 million views in only a couple of days. It would make me SERIOUSLY question the business decisions at Nintendo if they just decided not to add him to the game. I mean it's not like they are oblivious to the fact that he's a viral character/ are just going to ignore that a lot of people want him because "**** the fans"

Selling well isn't everything. The thing about choosing 3rd party characters is that it can improve relationships with 3rd party companies, like the way Joker does for Atlus or Hero does for Square-Enix(as well as the various IP owners of the DQ series). Both we clearly can see had a ton of games at the same time. There's definitely a lot more to business than sales alone.

There's no question he'd sell well. He's an iconic Nintendo character. But is that the whole thing they want? Maybe.

I want Waluigi as much as the next guy, but there's always a lot to think about for DLC.
