Nintendo fans all over the universe have been waiting for 2019’s first Nintendo Direct. Thankfully, the anticipation is almost over. A Direct was recently announced for tomorrow, February 13, 2:00 p.m. PT/5:00 p.m. ET. Fire Emblem: Three Houses news is a given, but what else? Interestingly, a retweet from Square Enix has gamers speculating on tidbits from the RPG maker, as well.
Drop a news bomb, Square!
Shinji Hashimoto, Japanese Executive Producer at Square Enix, retweeted two separate outlets revealing the Direct:
New Nintendo Direct coming tomorrow! What would you like to see announced? ?? https://t.co/cFMpLP5ggl

Famitsu and The Game Awards? What are you up to, Square?
I don’t believe a Square Enix producer would retweet a Nintendo Direct without having his company represented during the stream. But what to reveal?
Perhaps a character for Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC, from Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, or Dragon Quest? Conversely, Square might share more information regarding the FF Switch ports that do not have release dates, like FF VII and FF IX. Maybe some light will be shed on those FF Adventure and Secret of Mana trademarks? Hell, who is to say it isn’t an announcement of a new IP?! The possibilities are endless!
