"Obligatory “Take it with a grain of salt”

Chrom (trusted insider from ResetEra) says as following:

Hey guys. As the author of those peculiar Fire Emblem tweets from a few pages back, I'd like to step up and provide a follow-up to them here that should help temper expectations a little bit.

Yes, I've been hearing for a while that another Nintendo Direct is in fact happening later this week, but the new Fire Emblem apparently won't be featured there either. I know nothing of its exact contents, but I've learned that it won't be the one to reveal Fire Emblem. It sounds like another small Nintendo Direct from my understanding, no idea how they'll announce it. A more feature-length Nintendo Direct is supposedly planned for sometime in February, and, in my opinion, that's probably when we may see Fire Emblem after all. Here's hoping, I'm really excited for it. At this point I'm not thinking there'll be another Fire Emblem Direct though, sadly.

Apologies for the commotion. I do actually hear things from time to time, but I also realize it's important to not give people false hope if I can help it, so that's why I'm here to clarify. I hope you guys can forgive me. Either way, I think we can all agree it'd be best to wait until Nintendo says something before we can get all excited again.

Thursday is named later in the thread.

Yup, to be clear it's been my understanding that this Direct will be on Thursday the 18th. Was really sure it was supposed to be the next big one but unfortunately that doesn't seem like the case to me anymore.

About the theme of the direct this Thursday Chrom had to say:

As for the theme of the Direct this week, what I have about it is rather broad, which makes it hard for me to say what you should expect from it. I think it was something like 'games and accessories'? That's all I can really say about it from what I remember. And given the very short length of it, I just don't get the impression it'll be all that exciting.

** For people chiming in right now**

The next post below was made by Emily Rogers (Another ResetEra trusted industry insider) Shines some light on 2018 in general, also some extra comments on what Chrom had already stated above.

I just want to offer some food for thought. What I'm about to say might not make much sense today. But hopefully this post will make more sense as the year progresses. I apologize for sounding cryptic or vague. I'm trying to point everyone's hopes and expectations for 2018 in the right direction without spoiling announcements.....
