Watch as this is the secret codename for the Switch 2 somehow.

There's a greater than zero chance they'd do that, knowing "M rated Nintendo game" rumors would grab people's attention.

What a cool surprise - I'd spend some platinum points on Emio Icons

The teaser reminds me of how they approached announcing Ring Fit Adventure.

  • September 5th 2019 - Small teaser with people exercising with the ring accessory (game wasn't shown at all)
  • September 12th 2019 - Full reveal
  • October 18th 2019 - Game released

Considering July 18th (Nintendo World Championships) - September 26th (Echoes of Wisdom) is quite a sizable gap compared to the norm for Switch 1st party releases, I'd guess a late August/early September release for Emio.

Maybe the Nintendo is making a M rated MiiVerse E-Mii-O?

Only current first party series I could see this being is Famicom Detective Club. I’m guessing it’s something brand new tho. Hope we get to learn more sooner rather than later

It's a Kirby game. Clearly that was just Kirby and friends stacked up and wearing a trenchcoat

We can rule this out in being a Nintendo system teaser, given the trailer has an ESRB rating. It seems moreso that this is going to be an actual new horror game published by Nintendo themselves- if not developed by Nintendo or a Nintendo-owned corporation. I doubt this is going to be a sole teaser for a switch 2 project either, given that we're super early out and a full reveal probably won't be too long away from now.

People have a theory that we already know the devs because of something that popped up in recent days with Bloober team, but I doubt they're the ones responsible for this project honestly. Their words say that while they partnered with companies that have worked with Nintendo platforms before, the game they're developing is going to be published under their Broken Mirror Games label. Emio on the other hand seems to be published under Nintendo itself, thus ruling out Bloober from being the developers- or at least ruling out that this game is the one that Bloober was talking about developing anyways.

My thinking is that this is either going to be a game developed by Monolithsoft- or a game developed by a Japanese production studio that Nintendo is working along-side. The reason I think Monolithsoft is a good pick for this is due to Takahashi's previous statements on a game he wanted to produce for a while now. He said a while back that he wanted to work on a game that pushed the boundaries of what it meant to be an M rated game. He wanted to make a "violent, erotic, and heavy" game, but it never really materialized. The only thing that makes me doubt that this could be that game he wanted to make is mainly due to it being a horror title- or being marketed as such. While there's a chance that this teaser isn't exactly going to depict the entire feeling of the game itself, Monolithsoft is usually the type to make games that are more geared towards RPGs.

I do think the company producing this is Japanese though, given the Japanese characters at the end of the trailer- which says "smiling man." We'll just have to wait and see if Nintendo is actually doing this on their own, or if this is something just being published by them.

THIS IS THE BEST OUTCOME FOR ME HOLY S*** THIS IS AWESOME!!!

I've been meaning to tackle the Famicom Detective Club games ever since they got their Switch remakes back in 2021; cannot BELIEVE they actually ended up leading to a brand new game!

Anyone here know what the recommended play order for the first two Famicom Detective Club games are? Figured I may as well prepare myself in advance for when I eventually get around to them (which'll probably Autumn next year if I had to take a guess).

@Fizza Best order might be 1st 1st and 2nd 2nd, even though the second is a prequel. The 2nd game has a stronger plot. It's also reasonable to play it the other way round, they're fairly stand-alone.

Truly I am mankind's natural foe! Evil Incarnate! A walking cataclysm! A shapeless insanity! GUNDHAM TANAKA!

@Scooby-Doo Which one is the first (in terms of release order) again? The titles kind of blend together for me right now XD

@Fizza Sorry about that. The first is The Missing Heir and the second is The Girl Who Stands Behind.

@Scooby-Doo Thanks, that's perfect! I'm a huge sucker for VNs myself so the FDC Switch trilogy alongside something like Another Code Recollection sounds like it'd be perfect Autumn/Halloween gaming for next year πŸ‘» (I would play it this year but Ace Attorney's taking priority in terms of my mystery games for 2024)

@Fizza I still need to get round to playing Another Code, I've been wanting it for a while but just don't have the money. Always a tragedy, that.
