  • I can't tell by the timing, but I guess this thread was started before the mini Direct posted today? Do we want to reboot the forum betting special in anticipation of Nintendo's next "full sized" Direct?



  • Yeah this was like an hour-ish before it shadow dropped (I guess? Does it count as a shadow drop if everyone's freaking out over it for days?)

    Also I totally forgot this was a little mini-direct and not a big boy if my grand predictions didn't make it obvious.



  • Yeah, I guess it doesn't count



  • If we're still doing this then maybe edit your first post with big bold text that the bet is for whatever big Nintendo Direct comes next, January or no.



  • Quanto Bets (1 point each)

    How many shadow drops during the Nintendo January Direct?
    One.

    How many games will finally feature a release date?
    Eleven. (I assume this includes "releasing in 2018" or such)
    I'll bet Four though if we are requiring the release month as well.

    How many times will Reggie say that they’re/we're listening?
    Zero.

    How many new games will be shown?
    Six. (I'm assuming this counts everything: remasters, ports, etc that are "new products to buy" but weren't known previously)

    How many new characters will speak?
    Zero. (I assume 'new' means the character can't even have existed before in previously known games.)

    How many double jumps?
    Zero.

    How many remasters?
    Two.

    How many more Switch games compared to 3DS will be shown.
    Nine more Switch than 3DS.

    How many Switch click noises?
    Two.

    The Brim to Brim Bomb Bets(1 point each, incorrect bet -1 point each)

    Yes.

    Which will we see more of third party games or indies?
    Third Party.

    Will there be a 3rd Party exclusive Nintendo property announced(A Nintendo property made by another company)?
    No new annoucements. (I assume this means something like Mario+Rabbids or Hyrule Warriors, and not more standard releases codeveloped by a 3rd party like Smash, Bayonetta 3 or even Other: M)

    Will they announce a new Super Smash Brothers game?
    Yes.

    Will Buckets be splashed(sporting or otherwise)?
    No.

    Will Retro reveal themselves?
    No.

    Final bet(4 points)
    A Brand new Kid Icarus will be shown.



  • The next 'big' Nintendo Direct is tomorrow, get your bets in now. (Since January Direct was a "mini" , it was decided to freeze this thread and have it apply to their next full sized direct).



  • "Including new details on #MarioTennis Aces!" Yeah that's what we want to hear about..



  • @fridge-man I actually do want to hear about that one :p

    but yeah definitively hoping for something more substantial than that.
