Talk: GameStop’s Latest Listings Suggest a January Nintendo Direct


This is theory based off Twitter client YuyuKamii referencing various strange SKUs have been added to GameStop’s framework. What makes this talk reasonable is two or three significant things.

Most importantly, it itself doesn’t contain anything publicity commendable. Where phony records may list things like Splatoon 3 or F-Zero Switch, it’s only a lot of things recorded as Available SKU. From that point, a ton of different things are propose this will occur past the new postings.

The greatest is the absence of data encompassing the fifth and last Super Smash Bros. Extreme contender pass character. The official posting says all characters will discharge by Feb. 2020, so whomever it winds up being should be uncovered and discharged at some point this month. At the present time the mainstream talk that this will be Phoenix Wright and Joker will get a Kasumi as an Echo contender. Before anybody says this is impossible, not just has Phoenix not been affirmed as bogus, he was playable in Ultimate Marvel versus Capcom 3 and has somewhat of an after on Nintendo stages.


In addition to Smash needing to be revealed in some capacity, we have a mysterious Splatoon tweet. What makes it mysterious is a couple things. The 2020 message is reflected as SOS (Save Our Ship), along with the icon for a fallen player in Salmon Run. Not only that, some keen players noticed that the SOS actually says Save Our Salmons. You can make out the remaining letters as part of the waves, a nice touch that seemingly has to mean something.

Some other hints include datamind content for Marvel Ultimate Alliance and supposedly Switch version 10 is set to release sometime next week or at least month. Recently we’ve also gotten some hints and information about Bayonetta 3, possibly leading to new information. Doing it now would also set Nintendo up to do a wide variety of reveals, giving us an idea of what 2020 has to offer, with E3 being the perfect time to do a follow up.


While this is a lot of speculation and it’s possible the Nintendo Direct could happen with most of these things being wrong, we’re past due for one and should get one in the foreseeable future regardless.
