Well assuming we only get 5 Thursday I think at least 1 fighter for the direct is all but guaranteed. Even fatman's prediction would only tally up to 2-1.5 reveals now and 2 was what I was already predicting in the first place. Very exited to see things unfold we might be at the end here pretty soon.

Hmmm... Where could the General Direct be? Seems odd to do a totally separate Smash presentation unless... There's enough Smash info to split between two presentations. This just keeps getting better and better.
So you are still confident in a double reveal at least?

I was actually just about to ask you your thoughts on this because I thought this meant we'll only get one reveal. Maybe that's ironic to think due to it now being a Smash Direct so the likelihood of another character is somewhat more plausible, but... idk man, remember the Terry Direct when people said it "couldn't be that long for one fighter"? Well, the wording implies one fighter here, so I'm not getting my hopes up.

Hey everyone remember when several people **** on Fatman for saying that his source sent him a dm referencing a specific Resetera post specifically stating today at 6 AM pst as to when the next direct would be announced? I wonder how many of them are going to apologize?

spoilers: none of them are going to apologize and at most will just move goalposts

Hey, been hiding offline for a while. Needless to say, I'm looking into this and I'm going to be honest: we're probably getting just one fighter... and possibly a Mewtwo-styled announcement. I highly doubt they'll be anything outside of that but one can imagine...
Yeah, I can imagine that, except I personally believe that Sakurai will say something about DLC coming, not announce anyone, and that is it.

Fatmanonice Fatmanonice what do you think? I know you renounced your triple reveal theory, but what about a double reveal? Your contacts say anything?

Edit: You answered right when I sent this.


Yeah, my firm prediction is only 1 Fighter. Again, for the Terry presentation people were like "it CAN'T be that long for just Terry," and it was. So I really think we ought to just expect 1 Fighter and be pleased if there is another.

Well, all my contacts have supported a double since November and I was the one that went ham to predict a triple. No worries though. I'm actually very happy about this outcome and you'll see if and when things come to pass.

I agree. He may allude to future ideas but definitely not a second reveal...
I can imagine that and see that happening.

Have they done this before? Man, those guys at ResetERA are cheap if they do that, if you ask me.

My dear friends, the presentation will be 35 minutes long, which is 15 minutes longer than Hero and 10 minutes longer than Banjo. Terry's was as long as it was because of multiple history lessons and a literal Let's Play. I doubt that will happen again. Thursday should be a good day, perhaps not for Geno specifically, but a good day in general.

I came here to say I’m willing to give credit where credit is due. Fatman’s sources comments lined up with this announcement. I will keep an eye out for Dragonborn now.

While I won't put faith in a second reveal I think there is a very good chance we get info on non fp5 things. Amiibo plans moving forward, how new dlc will be structured. It's going to be a good day.

Don't forget, even though I don't think you are expecting a new character aside from Fighter 5, though I don't think there will be anything about that in there, Sakurai could still do something new with the presentation that could make it that long, like how he added that Let's Play in Terry's presentation, along with a few other things. Just saying.

Even if we don't see Geno Thursday, we'll be one step away from him probably. Geno might be next/#77 like you predicted Fatman. :bluejump:

So you ARE still confident in a double reveal, eh? (I'm not attempting to grill you, it's just that, again, sometimes us fans don't take stuff Nintendo say at face value and then it blows up in our faces, so I don't really want people to get hyped for the possibility of a double reveal when Nintendo specifically alluded to one fighter. True, you did give reason to it being longer than others and Terry's being a history lesson, but still, there is a way to have it be longer with no double reveal. Again, not grilling you at all, just genuinely talking through it.)


(Also, are Dragonborn and Waluigi your next two PREDICTIONS still?)

Nothing has really happened to change those predictions at all (which, it should be emphasized, are still predictions at the end of the day), so I would assume so.

The only things I want from this presentation:
- No leaks
- To be a livestream and not a video, so people don't spoil a new character/anything new in the end of the video right at the moment the video is up (if it doesn't, watch out for it guys)

Tbh, if your theory of a bonus for this Fighters Pass / Extra Pack is true, then it can really happen, leaving the first Fighter Pass 2 Character (which could possibly be Geno) to the next General Direct (and we don't overkill with 2 possible fan favorites in the same Direct). They may reveal the second pass the same way as the first one, only talking about the type of content.
