Maybe the motion control capturing is why Pokemon Let's Go is missing.

Dark Souls Remastered eh?

Well last time they had it playable at a trade show it got delayed to the following season so...

Here's the thing though...

Gamescom is the 21st of August. Summer ends in September. Dark Souls needs to hurry up and come out, because I hate being right.

Pretty cool to see Nintendo flexing a bit at Gamescon. I can't wait to find out more about the Daemon game

@Knuckles-Fajita It being part of the Gamescom list tells me that it's not coming out in August, that seems very clear.

@Grumblevolcano What is with their promotion of Killer Queen Black. They spent a whole segment of E3 on that and skipped over Fighter Z and a dozen other things. It looks thoroughly budget and they're trying to make it like it's GTAVI.

@Grumblevolcano Which means, and I honestly figured this would be the case given their lack of clarity, that it's missing the summer window entirely. Which puts it into the September/October rush season of games on PS4 and after that against Pokemon and Smash.

They really missed their chances there, unless its in 2019.

@NEStalgia Killer Queen Black is the first console release of a limited availability arcade game. Nintendo is going to be shouting about that like you wouldn't believe.

I wonder how long we'll have to wait for the next Direct? The recent rumors suggested July, but clearly that didn't come through. And now we're less than a couple months away from the online service going live. Nintendo has to be (HAS TO BE) airing a Direct sometime between now and before then.

Right?

Anywho, I'm always eager to hear news more news on third party support, since the rest of 2018 is pretty locked up exclusive-games-wise. August, Monster Hunter. September, Labo Vehicle Kit. October, Super Mario Party. November, Pokémon Lets Go. And December, Super Smash Bros.

@Knuckles-Fajita Oh jeez, arcades are going 8-bit indie retro now too? Even when the arcades were seriously big the whole thrill was they looked better than the 8-bit NES

I find it more interesting now after finding that out (if it has arcade stick support to match the cabinet), and I looked it up but it still seems....but this isn't exactly street fighter. There's 40 of them, moreso bar/arcade-bar settings than actual arcades, and it seems oriented around party play 5v5. Yeah, perfect for Switch, so I get it on the 1-2-Switch level of marketing now. Fun if you have a big group and a lot of controllers.

We'll all know roughly 2-3 days before it happens lol

I know, ain't that the truth.

I just hope Labo Vehicle Kit isn't the beginning and the end of Nintendo's announcements for Q2 and Q3.

@Knuckles-Fajita Pretty sure Nintendo's using the definition of summer which ends on September 23rd.

@Grumblevolcano Yeah, colloquially we have some messed up months. We consider June "summer" and September "Fall" and December Winter, with March alternately being spring or fall depending on how the weather goes. It's largely based on meteorological seasons, but calendar seasons are another thing. I recall in the past Nintendo counts Summer by the calendar, Jul, Aug, Sep, and Spring as Apr, May, Jun.

I’m predicting the next Direct on either the 14th, 15th, 17th or 24th as they’re the weekdays I’m on Afternoons and won’t be able to watch. It’s as scientific as you can get.

Amazon Italy says Dark Souls Remastered is launching October 1st, outside of the Summer window given.

Probably is, as a Nintendo published game in Europe, it aint releasing on a Monday

If we get a Direct it'll be either close to gamescom or TGS. Leaning more towards the latter myself, cause they aren't gonna have livestreams for that and to get any potential announcements/trailers to an international audience

What a beautiful signature.

Twitter, not like there's anything interesting on there

A Nintendo direct is always coming up within the next week.

Unless it doesn't, then it's definitely the week after for sure.

Unless it isn't, but then the rumors will definitely be right , direct next month definitely

A broken clock is right twice per day
