At this point, I can very easily see a Direct or presentation of some sort announcing Doom, then a "surprise" ending with him being announced as the next Smash DLC character, with a "Sakurai will tell you more about him at a later date" thing. It achieves the goal of getting Smash fans to Doom, and Doom fans to Smash. Boost both at the same time, especially while people are still going to be holed up with rising COVID cases (not to make things political).Bethesda: "Doom Slayer is NOT coming to Smash! He's not, he's not, he's not!"
Nintendo Direct: "Doom Slayer is coming Smash!"
Bethesda: ".....didn't see that one coming, did ya?"
In which case, I'm sure you know where it all goes from there on this forum...
100%. I'm not saying it means Direct specifically...just something that could be akin to a Direct. A TGA presentation would fit that bill. All I'm saying is that the language of the statement indicates something other than a simple release date is coming. Unless they're employing sub-par PR people.Don't forget that this is Bethesda, creators of the critically acclaimed "The Elder Scrolls" franchise. On one hand, I was going to just leave this joke at that implication that they have no quality employees, but when I start to stack the books with how many times they've gotten away with murder in the past few years, we might have an argument that their PR people are the best in the business.
However, much more information could easily be shared at The Game Awards and we could equally easily be looking at absolutely nothing coming from Nintendo.
