Care to explain how it was obvious?

I wouldn't even say it's a prank and more of a troll.

@arronishere: Very Funny! >:<

I got seriously shocked there!!!!! Do you realize that Fire Emblem is one of my personal favorite franchises out there since I got Awakening?!?!?

This April fools joke can't be taken as a joke. Firstly, NoA hasn't done a proper instruction manual for Fates. It doesn't even have the more detailed information unlike Awakening ( and even that game doesn't have much detail for the instructions) A game like Fates needs to sell well and NoA didn't make any attempt to provide proper instructions for the game!

Also, what the hell? Why is it they can't do it on something like Metroid? a series that's just now more niche than Fire Emblem? What the hell was NoA thinking off putting a stunt like that angering the userbase like that?

And the worst part is that I can't even find the damn tweet! >:<

It'd be better if they'd remember twitter only allows 140 character tweets, dead give away.

Is that the real Nintendo of America Twitter account? I'm surprised they went along with things in this way, as much as it is obviously April Fools stuff. Imagine if this was about Metroid Federation Force

Is Artwark really actually pissed or going with the joke? I honestly cannot tell.

If it's the former that's a little sad.

If you add me, I need to at least know you or I won't add you back.

It's photoshopped, twitter only allows 140 characters (letters, numbers, spaces, apostrophes etc) tweets. Before I even read it I realised it was a fake because of long it was.

This is no laughing matter, there's no instructions on how to play Fire Emblem AND for some reason Metroid?!?!!?!?

@arronishere: that explains it then. I'm not active on Twitter if that wasn't already obvious. 8/10 for the prank.

It was obvious (a) because Fates has sold really well so only an ignoramus would get suckered in by the thread title, especially on 01/04, and (b) the English in that fake Tweet is of poor quality - Nintendo's quality control is better than that.

If you're going to bother mocking up a fake, at least pay enough attention to the details to make it worth your while.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

The fact that you posted in a previous thread about whether you were able to post April Fools day threads or not was a big clue. Alongside the obviously fake tweet that was too long, and was also nowhere to be found on the Nintendo of America twitter page.

Yes, I like bears.

@Detective_TeeJay: @arronishere: Yeah, screw me for not being able to take things as a joke right? After all, NoA is partly the reason why Fire Emblem or even to the likes of niche games like Xenoblade can't sell that huge compared to Japan in the first place. I mean if Fates could sell half a million in Japan, then how is it a problem getting that same amount in US?

Different counties have different tastes, Fates has sold well and you actively look for things to get worked up over regardless of how minor it maybe.

That is too bad. I enjoyed the series. I thought things were getting better for the series

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

I know, right, well what you gonna do I guess, I noticed a large quality drop in the series so maybe it was for the best for Nintendo to put the series out of it's misery. Hopefully Nintendo has more time to worry with F-U-Zero now. Untitled

Maybe they can put that effort towards a new Advance Wars, that series has more guns and so more Western appeal.
