OH SHIT!

Nintendo have been doing these interviews with various voice actors from the Fire Emblem series for some time now... that's not the important part.  The important part is that this particular interview contains something very interesting... ENGLISH LANGUAGE FOOTAGE OF THE ORIGINAL SNES FE: GENOLOGY OF THE HOLY WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!

Time stamped for your convinence

Roll on the September Nintendo Direct!!! :bouncy::bouncy::bouncy:

"Not Actual Game Footage"

Cool your jets. It's not the first time Fire Emblem has mocked up some English conversations for the sake of these interviews.

It's certainly suspicious, but it's not hard confirmation.

Would be neat though!

Heads up. Got LEGO Brawl the other day as it looked fun (for review). It isn't Don't buy it. My 5 year old found it fun for an hour and then he wanted to play something else. There is some fun in creating your own minifigures but it's more fun with real LEGO.

The rumoured Direct next week is perhaps delayed due to the death of the queen. Convenient for the leakers if it doesn't come next week.

I don't buy it, it was never announced, first of all. Also, it's like 3am in Japan, the decision makers will be asleep.

This is a convenient "out".

Sounds like they tricking people to join their stream. Poor show.

Using a real life death as an excuse for a "leak" not coming true is definitely a crass low for these rumour-mongers.

It’s not like predicting a September Direct is anything praiseworthy to begin with.

I mean, we’ve literally had a September Direct every single year since 2016 (that’s 5 years and counting) without fail.  Real Herlock Shlomes this guy is :heh:

He did more than predict a September Direct, he predicted the content as well.

Maybe he should have predicted the Queen dying too.

The Snitch has started teasing game announcements, whether this is related to the Direct or not is unknown. Given that his info seems to come from recently uploaded YouTube videos at the backend of the site, it's fair to say that there's a good chance this is Direct related.

I'm reading that Switch hardware achieved a 98% market share in Japan last week. That's absolutely insane. Nintendo has had that country on lock for a while but this is something else. It's fair to say that standard console gaming is well and truly dead over there. It's probably why so many Japanese devs are still making PS4 games because they know PS5 isn't going to make a dent over there.

Yeah, Japanese devs are kind of stuck if they refuse to make Switch versions of their games and want to maintain any semblance of domestic sales.

The really frightning thing isn't even the PS5's hardware sales (which are still behind Wii U launch-alligned), it's the software attach rate.  I believe it's around 0.3 games per hardware purchase right now... Meaning that at least 2/3's of all PS5 consoles are being sold to scalpers and flipped to be resold overseas! So the real PS5 userbase is actually just a fraction of its hardware sales!

I'm sure them raising the price of the console will help with that.

Oh wait.

Reggie is a guest on Kit and Krystas YouTube channel. I’ve not had a chance to watch it fully but it should be interesting:
