btw I'm so committed to having a raccoon avatar that if by some minuscule chance I lose the bet I'll change my avatar but request a two-month self-ban to get me to the next Nintendo Direct

Team Doom Guy for Smash.

I’ve been calling him since Smash was announced and I’m not changing my call now.

Through out the year, people have wised up, they have realized the void in their hearts and I am betting Sakurai has too.

Only problem is that I’m taking the loss of another bet, if I lose I will not change my avatar right away, I will change it after my previous bet wears off and hold it for the same length between the loss and the next direct.

But don’t worry, my gut is with me and that means 100% chance of victory.

Likely:
Bayonetta 3 (It's been ages and it resurfacing here would make sense)

BotW 2 (Zelda has a history of showing up here and the pattern of BotW's announcement cycle would fit here, too.)

Smash's 5th character (There's no better place to announce this. Imagine it being something as big as Minecraft Steve, you want an audience that goes beyond the core Nintendo one to announce that. Having the first and last announced there would also be like poetry, it rhymes.)

Hopefully but unlikely:
Give us Metroid Trilogy you cowards.

I‘m confident that they have more licensed games in production and TGA is the best place for those. Might not be this year tho but I‘m betting the farm regardless.

Botw 2 I think may be shown.
Atleast judging off the last trailer shown they made some progress in development and will show something minor.
I have a gut feeling this is a majoras mask situation all over again and we gonna get re used assets but just some tweaks here and there

I mean no need for a gut feeling because that's what will happen 100%. They are going to re-use a lot of assets because it would be stupid to start all over again, i.e. it would take longer to develop the game.

Smash newcomer 5 is guaranteed, they clearly didn't show it during Terry's presentation because TGA was close.

My bet for another Nintendo game is Bayo 3, now that Astral Chain has already been released for a while it's the best moment to show progress with the next Platinum game (unless they release the SE game before which I doubt). I can even see Kamiya working actively in the game, as we have not heard anything about him for a while.

I'm IN!

  • Breath of the wild 2
  • Smash DLC
Not expecting much more than that but would be happily surprised if more is shown (Pikmin 4!)

Okay, I'll bet on Crash Bandicoot as the 5th Smash DLC character. I hate him, but with his inclusion the big mascots would all be in the game: Mario, Pikachu, Pac-Man, Sonic, Mega Man and...Crash.

Jimmy Joe, what does ANITIQUE mean?
ANTIQUE means that a person was on Dark Cloud's list but has not identified themselves as wanting to be part of the avatar bet, and so will not be held accountable until such time as they say they're in on the bet.

I believe it's too soon to show BotW 2 again because people will then get impatient. It's better to stay silent, then people, stupid as they always are, will say "lol they haven't showed it yet therefore it won't release this year, everyone knows that a game's progress is directly related to the trailers released, no trailer means the game is 2 years away from release, I know cause I'm smart, I did an online IQ test once I got like 250". And then boom, coming E3 they show a trailer, announce November 2020 release and the aforementioned Einsteins will be confused and surprised.

For some reason I've got the feeling that we won't be seeing much of anything new. But I haven't really kept up with Nintendo's presence at this event, so it's a total asspull of a guess.
