Forums - Nintendo Discussion - RUMOUR: Possible Nintendo Direct on May 7th?

Even if you wanna read it like that, spot on still isn't correct. Even if it was 100% correct, that doesn't mean the rest of the rumor is anymore likely to be true. But fine, wont say the E3 part of the rumor is bust just because the online bit wasn't perfectly accurate. Will however still say it's a bust due to the E3 rumors being utter nonsense. I think it's clear that the original 4chan source got wind of the online service info dropping May 7th but knows nothing beyond that. They tried to put that one morsel of truth inside a sandwich of BS to make the whole thing believable and gain temporary fame. It's the March direct all over again.

Fact is he's got more right than some want to give him credit for even predicting the day online details would be revealed whether the rest is true remains to be seen but as it stands official events have backed his claims whether you want to dismiss the rest of what he says the rumour has shown to have some credibility.

No one is denying that they were right about the date, but again that isn't the end all. The E3 details aren't realistic and we've had leaks that got some things right but most everything else wrong before, these facts shouldn't be glossed over either.

Wow, this guy nailed it. He said that Nintendo would announce online details on May 7th and they did. He said that Virtual Console wouldn't come to Switch and he was right. Guessing his E3 leak is right as well then.

So, based on the name for Fire Emblem, Lustrous Daybreak, I'm guessing it's a remake of Radiant Dawn, or possibly a sequel to it? Lustrous Daybreak is just synonyms for Radiant Dawn afterall. 

Pokemon being a gen 1 remake wouldn't surprise me, matches with some earlier leaks as well as the leaked screenshot. Hopefully he's right about the graphics being midway between Sun/Moon and Pokken, because the leaked screenshot looked barely better than Sun/Moon, though maybe it was from an early build before they finished the graphics. 

That's exactly it, Lustrous Daybreak is the same name, which means it could only be a remake, but we already know Fire Emblem Switch is a brand new game. Even though the date turned out correct, this alone still debunks the E3 portion of the leak, especially when the rest of it is similarly flawed. The 3DS Pokemon games pushed the system to it's limits. Doesn't necessarily mean Pokemon will push the Switch in the same way, but it makes little sense that they suddenly cheap out on graphics for a series they know it's safe to put high production values into. Even Kirby got a huge step up from it's 3DS days, and they said Fire Emblem will aswell.

Im not saying youre wrong, i think the leak is fake as well.....but wouldnt being between S/M & Pokken be a huge visual leap?

I personally don't think the Fire Emblem name single-handedly debunks it, it could just be a direct sequel to Radiant Dawn.

I wouldn't use him saying Pokemon's graphics are only a half step for debunking purposes either, Gamefreak are frankly kind of lazy. There's a reason why the DS Pokemon games look pretty much the same as the Gameboy Advance Pokemon games even though DS was a good bit more powerful. Halfway between Sun/Moon and Pokken is actually better graphics than I'm personally expecting, though obviously I'm hoping for Pokken tier graphics. The recent leaked screenshot barely looked better than Sun/Moon, hopefully it was fake (though I do hope they replaced random encounters with visible Pokemon and allow you to have your lead Pokemon out of it's ball like the screenshot suggests):

In between S/M and Pokken is a very wide window, could mean it looks as good as PS3 game or only as good as a GCN game, but the big take away is that it doesn't look as good as Pokken. No way Pokemon Switch isn't on par with other 1st party releases I say.

A direct sequel using basically the same exact name, cmon who does that? Can't say Intelligent Systems does as Radiant Dawn while a bit similar isn't the same as Path of Radiance. Also logistics. Why make a sequel to a 10 year old game few have played and have to deal with whether or not it should be modernized?

Sure back then they might've been lazy in terms of graphics, but the more recent games are naturally more telling of their current plans, and the 3DS installments are among the best looking games on the system. On the flipside, content/quality/balancing have suffered a bit, so even if you still want to say they're lazy, it just means the little effort they do put in is focused on flash and style rather than substance. Also I've no doubt that screenshot is fake. It's just straight out of Sun/Moon with minor additions. Very easy to fake.

Sure but when i here something is in between two things i tend to assume that means like right in the middle.

Is it even possible for it to look as good as Pokken? Pokken is an arena fighter with a couple dozen characters vs a semi-open RPG with hundreds of characters.

I could be wrong but i just dont think Pokken level visuals is a realistic expectation.

Absolutely! Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, Xenoblade 2, and so ons look just as good as Pokken so mainline Pokemon can too especially since it doesn't need 60fps.

This sound far more like educated guess than anything else, I mean Nintendo itself 10 days ago said that online informations are coming in early May and last week was holiday in Japan so begining of this week made most sense for informations. Also we already know that something strange going on with VC, that NES games are coming and that launch will be in September.

While about more specific things that he mentioned like  24. September like release date for online, GBA games with August release and SNES and N64 games being made available late 2018/early 2019. and Discord like chat service, we didn't had nothing of that.

I mean he probably is right about some things about E3 from his list, but that again is most likly more educated guess based on informations we have than true informations.

Ugh, despite getting things wrong, the guy is still saying his leak is real.

I'd be happy for it looking much less like Pokken for 1080p docked/720p undocked graphics. Pokken can look a bit muddy at times (especially in the background), which normally I don't care about, but with the mainline series the overworld is a lot more important and I'm used to the games while sometimes not having the most impressive visuals still being pretty well polished. 

Anyway I've always considered the direction of the Pokemon games is towards the anime's style and not realistic visuals. So cell shading for the most part will help to achieve clean, polished visuals.

I hope to see him being "DENIED" after E3 :3
