RUMOR - Early details on tomorrow's European Nintendo Direct (UPDATE 2)

You have been warned! If you don't want to see potential spoilers for tomorrow's European Nintendo Direct, do NOT hit the jump! If you do click through, I'm guessing you're okay with some spoilers!

Well, it looks like we have some interesting tidbits here for tomorrow's European Nintendo Direct. That is, if these rumors are to be believed. I mean, let's really think about things for a minute. Do you believe an outlet would be so starved for attention that they would create a fake Nintendo Direct lineup just hours before the event takes place? Also, the outlet in question (n1ntendo.nl) has been very good with leaks in the past, so they have some credit to their name. With all that out of the way, let's look at the more interesting tidbits.

The list includes mentions of Lost Reavers, Monster Hunter Generations, Monster Hunter Generations X Fire Emblem and SNES VC games on New 3DS. As far as I can tell, those are the new tidbits of information. Certainly some nice surprises in there! Could Monster Hunter Generations end up being the localized version of Monster Hunter X? I guess we'll find out tomorrow!

UPDATE - Here's a little more discussion that adds some validity to the rumor.

UPDATE 2 - NerdLeaks has discovered that Monster Hunter Generations is listed on the EU trademark site.

Hmm @ SNES games on the 3DS.

Will we have to rebuy them or will we be able to download the ones we already have? My Nintendo Account is launching this month, right?

Exactly the questions I have. Unified VC please!

I want Metroid x Fire Emblem.

What I wanted was the StarFox/Metroid rumor that was floating around years ago.

The lack of Mother 3 is sad. It'll have made the Direct for me. Sad

Still looking forward for the Federation Force reactions. I'll have to prepare my own replies.

If I were Nintendo, I would be holding that one close to my chest for an E3 reveal. They know how much good will it will get them, and they want the widest possible audience present.

That said, I'm with you... I want it ASAP, but from a business perspective, it just makes sense to hold onto it.

More than that, I'm just wondering if they'll mess with the code to support the Mother Amiibo. That's a possibility. Also one how it has become tradition giving Itoi some words at each E3.

I'd love it. Itoi is a personal hero, and every piece of his work that can get to a wider audience is something I'm all-in for.

What I think makes the most sense is a "World of Mother" Collection that has all three games on the same media and includes some token Amiibo interactions. That would be a total home run for me, and I'd gladly pay $40 for it. What's more, if it were an NX handheld launch title, that would all but assure an NX sale for me, too.

Monster Hunter X Fire Emblem? ...I'm guessing that's DLC, right? Not a new game?

Most likely costumes ,i think
Monster hunter already had quite a few costumes crossovers

I think he meant Monster Hunter X, AND Fire Emblem, rather than them being the same. ^^

Anyways, I hope this is fake, if only because I prefer Directs to be a surprise.

... yet I read this. I am weak.

Nothing too interesting for me.
I do wonder how federation force will show up

Pretty unexciting.

Kinda hope it's fake to be quite honest, the only things that interest me are Lost Reavers, Fates Special Edition and Monster Hunter

Even if the website can be trusted (never heard of them), doesn't mean the source can, or where the source got the information from.

This looks fake as fake. Anyone could make files and screenshot them just like those "offishul nein10doh e-three pahyper leests".

I feel the same, one thing that bothers me greatly is how nothing was truly shown, no thumbnails, no file sizes, etc. not even a folder preview.

It's playing it very safe, so I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of this is actually correct, but it just seems off.

Still the fact that it looks so mundane feels like it's real. Also ending with the Yokai Watch sequel seems something Nintendo would do.

Actually, Yo-Kai watch isn't out in Europe yet, so it'll be the first one.
I do agree it feels a bit mundane though, so yeah, regardless of this being real or fake, I feel a lot of this will probably still happen.

There's been so many Nintendo Direct/E3 lists and they've all been fake because it takes zero effort to make. It's just some person/kid trying to get attention. Some of those things are likely to happen, but not because "they leaked it" but because they're incredibly safe things to bet on/assume.

I love how you imply that kids aren't people xD (sorry, couldn't resist).

Especially since Liam's rep took a hit after the Devil's Third fiasco

I don't recall, what did he report and get wrong about it? That Nintendo wasn't going to publish it? Because for the longest time Nintendo wasn't, and then a bunch of people complained and then they did publish it.

This list gave me that disappointed feeling I usually get after a Nintendo Direct. This has to be legit.

Wow, I'd love for this to be true, if only because it seems we'd be getting Monster Hunter X localized? And apparently with Fire Emblem crossover gear, that's awesome.

SNES games on 3DS is cool I guess. If there was cross-buy I'd be more hyped for it.

Nothing too surprising outside of that, but I'd be satisfied with this Direct if this was all we got.

If this isn't fake, then I'm not sure why they're putting out a Direct with so little to show.

That list can get a good 30-45 mins of content

Of course, but the actual content isn't worthy of a direct. It's like bragging about being the skinniest kid on the first day of fat camp.

I'm going to wait till tomorrow. I don't believe the rumors until Nintendo speaks out. If they don't, the rumor is fake; if they do, the rumor is true. I'm not hype on rumors.

All these info & rumors coming out has been way outta hand to handle. How can someone leak all these stuff & not get caught? The only way we are getting all these rumors is I feel Nin got hacked no doubt. Mdave must know a hacker that is feeding him all this stuff. But Monster Hunter news omfg!!!!!!!!! Yes yes yes! That's all I need to know & the rest is dismissed!

You're assuming that any of those "leaks" are real. The patents you can't get away from but something like this can easily be faked. It's no different than the numerous "lists" where someone describes the games we'll see in an E3 or normal Nintendo Direct. And none of them are real. The only difference here is that instead of a word document someone just represented it with folder, that don't show video files, images, or even file sizes.

True, fanboys at their best trying to get some of us going, fk! But what makes this real for me is that both SF game editions, one SD & CE were both on the list printed out on paper from GameStop when I asked to see upcoming games for Wii U/3DS.

Why are they using Excell 1997?

Also why would they reveal a first edition if the game is probably going to delayed again?

Maybe they'll adapt the Battlefront model and release a bit of the game and everything else a season pass. *ba dum tss*

Well people DO say Nintendo has been stuck in the 90's...

Consider me bored by this possibility.

Excited for Metroid, Lost Reavers & Star Fox news, don't care about the rest.

I don't have an N3DS, so SNES VC means nothing to me, and Fates/Yo-Kai are already out here in NA.

Really doubt there won't be amiibo, even if just Cloud/Corrin/Bayonetta dates.

Still, there's a chance they could add something at the last minute. I mean...

Now that I think about it probably the Miitomo and account plant is of that presentation folder.

There's no mobile stuff in tomorrow's presentation.

How boring... It must be real.

This look so fake it's giving me cancer... LOL.

I'm gonna say this is fake.

Why would Capcom change the name of Monster Hunter X to Monster Hunter Generations? Plus the Fire Emblem crossover sounds really fishy.

Lost Reavers is a free to play game and has been out for a few months in Japan and Scamco have been doing worldwide launches for thier f2p games.

SNES Virtual Console exclusively on New 3DS is laughable.

Maybe CC has had more then one MH in development that they are keeping under warps. Gen does make sense as X is the same thing so I believe they will call it that.

RMC, are you...okay? this is the most fake looking leak so far. Lol.

Most exciting thing is getting a release date for Fire Emblem Fates.

Not gonna read this today, but will definitely come back to it tomorrow. Directs/Digital Events are so much more boring when the reveals are already known.

Pokemon Direct from last week is a terrific example of that.

Trademark was filed for Monster Hunter Generations.

I expected nothing, it is nothing. Back to waiting for Zelda and NX.

Nothing for me here if true.

I'm expecting a slight turn-around on MP:FF with it's re-reveal, though, which will be amusing to see.

Sounds so lame and underwhelming it MUST be true! Given how the 3DS and Wii U are on their way out.
