Livestream and then maybe a character release right after.

If that happens, I want y'all to know that I called this back in October.

Including how to use the fighter? That could mean they are releasing the fighter on the same day!

an early-by-a-day birthday present for me

Also it’ll be funny if we get Smash in January but no direct for a month still

Just the presentation, no general Direct... so I guess that means the DMC news are not Switch related.

Well, either that or Dante's in and we all got BTFO'd, but my guess is the former.

This is probably the funniest way Sakurai could have handled things. No big Nintendo Direct, just, hey tune in Thursday morning for a new fighter lol.

Also, I can't wait to be playing as ??? 2 days from now.

Been waiting so long to play as him since he first debuted in Gold & Silver.

I'm betting right now, if this final character is a first-party, I'm wearing the Eiscue of shame for a whole month:

It's also just one character... which means people are going to immediately freak out over no additional news lol.

Clearly by saying "Oracles," we're getting Futaba. Color theory confirmed. Spirit promotions confirmed.

Obviously.

I'm going to die of laughter if next week comes around and we have a Animal Crossing Direct.

No it's just one character, which means people are going to immediately speculate he'll reveal two characters.

Real gamers get up when Sakurai tells them to and LIKE IT.

Nintendo is just going out of their way now to give us everything other than a Direct, lol.

Not complaining, I love Sakurai’s presentations, and it’s perfectly timed for me :dkmelee:

Time to overanalyze the implications of not announcing the character at some event beforehand.
