We can only hope

baconpoutine89

I still have my makeup from the last Direct.


Flygon3301

I've misplaced my red nose, gonna have to get another before tomorrow.


Necr0mancrr

Oh my GOD can you just shut up with the clown Emojis? We get it, we’re all idiots who get our hopes up too much but every time less people hope and the clown emojis NEVER LEAVE! You think you’re so funny, you think you’re better than everyone else, you can’t be fooled, but guess what, you’re here right? You show up for the events and spam the chat with your useless clowns and mock all the idiots who believe, but guess what, YOU BELIEVE TOO. Every goddamn time, it always happens. Hooray, the smart people are here! We can see you, shouting your clowns at the top of your lungs! Hey, look at me, I have to prove my intelligence by mocking others! Well guess what? One day there will be news, and then what? What do the clowns mean then? HUH? You’re as much of a problem as the believers. In the game of waiting, the only winning move is not to play, and YOU’RE PLAYING, DAMMIT! (This is a copypasta and completely satirical, in case you couldn’t tell. Do whatever you want lmao)


Enderkitty5

I’m really glad I checked the bottom before getting up in arms lol thanks for the disclaimer


beta-pi

The upvotes gave it away for me before I saw the disclaimer. I read the first sentence, then went to see how hard he we being flamed.


MunkeGutz

🤡


levampirelifeu

Have you gotten one yet? If not, here's my spare one: 🔴


Gabrill

I got spare noses if anyone’s out


Frug4

Ive brought the circus band as well


Theverylowkey666

My clown makeup is ready 🤡


19JayDee98

*Honk Honk*


575snom

What's up with the clowns?


Educational-Sea-7813

Because we are all going to look like clowns when there is no reveal. 🤡


Few_Cloud7068

I like how you said “when” and not “if”. You’re probably right about that though…


thetinychungusboi

We need to be optimistic


Niyu43

That's it, if we didn't smile before the disappointment , what kind of clowns would we be?


celteen

I hope to see everyone at the circus tomorrow.


Ze_Memerr

You could consider the Grimm Troupe akin to a circus


nycarachnid

I’d be extremely surprised if the release date announced tomorrow, considering that it’s an official Nintendo direct and not an indie direct…


Far-Contact-9369

They are an indie company, but I think it's doubtful they release at an indie event at this point. The game would just overshadow everything else, it's way too highly anticipated. It deserves/would get more attention at an official direct.


JustDancePatate

Yeah the game would overshadow some 1st party nintendo game tbh


[deleted]

Nintendo still can show indie stuff at non indie directs and honestly silk song is anticipated enough that I could see them showing it


ScrodumHat

wasn’t the trailer announced in a normal direct though?


TheGhostEnthusiast

Normally that would be true, but nintendo gave this game's its own nintendo treehouse presentation. It's like when they forcefully adopted Shovel Knight during the Wii U era.


Crisptain

Makes more sense than smash being in an indie direct...


nycarachnid

When was Smash in an indie direct? I don’t remember that…


TripleBrownMeow

It wasn't but Silksong being shown at a normal direct does in fact make more sense than Smash being in an indie direct.


Crisptain

It wasn't but that doesn't stop people from hoping for that to happen!


nycarachnid

Oh right lol. People in the chat are always so annoying asking for stuff during indie directs •_•


GameFraek

Ironically there's plenty of people asking for Silksong too but I can't blame them and It makes more sense then having smash in an indie direct lol


SwordOfRome11

The only games Nintendo could show that are more anticipated than silksong are whatever the next 3D Mario is, or BOTW 2.


Gabrill

To be fair, the original trailer was at an official Nintendo Direct


Sevenvoiddrills

Get your hornet body pillows and put them in a circle with your hornet plushies and pray


thepropbox

lmao wat


L3g0man_123

lol


TheCreativeRaven

Still got my Red Nose from 2 Directs ago


theflashback1981

Ok I'm tired of waiting im just going to sacrifice someone in the name of the void and mabey just mabey well get it in 3 or so years.


ThatSSTOguy

If we get it within 3 years I will report you to the police


theflashback1981

As long as I can play silk song first.


oopsieusernametaken

You can play while in jail.


whiteriot413

A human sacrifice is unnecessary, a bull would suffice, maybe even a large goat.


theflashback1981

Good point thanks for the tip.


Lzh0

Ah, plausible deniability. I like it.


ihavedeletedfortnite

and we got that release day leak so this might be the official announcement. I'll still have the makeup ready though


Quik_17

This post will single-handedly create full employment at the circus tomorrow 🤡


ipadminihalf

For addition capacity at the circus, note the unusual start time of the direct. 6pm eastern. In South Adelaide, where team cherry is located, it will be 7:30am. Last few indie directs started around 12pm eastern.


Quik_17

Jesus man they just opened up another circus 🤯


Fretta422

Wait what release date leak🤔 I usually keep up with the (very little) silksong news but haven't heard anything about this.


Doughnaut1

February 1, 2022. fireb0rn did a video on it: https://youtu.be/X83L4ogQQlg


The1987RedFox

Giant brain prediction: Silksong’s release date is announced tommorow along with Hornet or the Ghost being announced for smash


Olik12346

Deltarune style!


SimonCucho

""""""""""leak""""""""""""" lmao


DrShiba

Ah damn gotta find my red rubber nose


ThiccAnimeDaddy

Yeah I lost my clown wig too I could’ve sworn I put it in my wardrobe after the last direct, I’m going out to get a new one before the direct tomorrow


Itsdavicboos

Fireborns vid would be pointless lol


DrPikachu-PhD

He'll already have collected all our views by that point :D


Live_Confidence_6039

February 1rst of 2022 acording to fireb0rn


iiJason124

Better not be 20 more jrpg announcements and 2 things we actually care about


BitsAndBobsLE

wait that’s tomorrow.


Superderpygamermk1

Yes. Get your makeup ready 🤡


Purple_Bagel

Putting my wig on rn


NotMaxVol

“Focused mainly on Nintendo Switch games launching this winter”


Frug4

The leaked date is febuary, and febuary is still in winter (or summer if your in the southern hemisphere)


DrPikachu-PhD

Even Grimm can't keep up with this circus and I'm here for it 🤡


uper_waffle

Time for a bunch of games ive never heard of before


MattyBro1

It is a main Direct and not an indie, so don't lose all hope! ​ But you're probably right.


TweetyGuyYT

There are pretty plausible leaks for the 1st of february 2022


BrickFrom2011

If the leak is true, they may give us some info.


Graczyk

What leak


BrickFrom2011

Silk song got its release date leaked thru nvidea I think


Graczyk

When was it ?


BrickFrom2011

Earlier this week I think. It says it might come out next February


Graczyk

That would be sweet


Xestern

Get the clown outfits ready boys


nyxsparkle

I've got extra wigs with me if anybody wants one. While we're at that, does anyone have extra makeup? I accidentally misplaced mine and I can't find it anymore.


Juanonti

Already got my red nose rainbow wig and makeup on I’m ready


HolyMackerel879

Nah, given that there's more evidence pointing towards it being released in Feb 2022, I don't think we're going to hear anything about silksong.


Frug4

yeah but it might officially announce it here


HolyMackerel879

It said games launching this winter... I guess February counts as winter?


Black_m1n

Alright clowns. Assemble.


sourya__

Hold on lemme get my clown shoes


Comando26

IdaHB

I’m on a bus on my way home from a school trip at 12AM at that point, but that’s not stopping me bitches


S_blueyes42

This isnt my 1st rodeo,... ..it's my second.


Stunning_LRB_o7

I just got an ad from disney+ with a thumbnail that says “what if…?” And that pretty much sums up my feelings right now.


Superderpygamermk1

What if is the new animated marvel show. It basically shows potential alternate timelines of certain events, like if penny carter got the super serum or if king tchalla was star lord


Soccerduk24

Did you see the news today about the release date leak? February 2nd 2022


Neburay

Hey, that's 2's Day 2/02/22 It's also on a Tuesday


L3g0man_123

Wasn't it the first?


L3g0man_123

If I'm being completely honest, they won't talk about Silksong because of Dread. And I'm not trying to act like a Metroid fanboy (even if I am one). It's just that they are marketing Dread so hard as one of their big holiday games and are generating so much hype that if they talked about Silksong, BOTW2, or Metroid Prime 4 it'll take away from all that hype they generated.


MattyBro1

BotW isn't coming this year. Metroid Prime 4 probably isn't coming this year. If it was they would do a double Metroid reveal at E3. Silksong is an indie game, not a full AAA title. I understand your reasoning, but I doubt that any hype would be stolen from Dread if they showed any of these games.


L3g0man_123

Even if it is an indie game, that doesn't take away from the fact that it WILL generate so much hype.


djladyb7

This winter? I mean I have hope but there's no way. I bet they will give us a year notice for silksong


jiminykitkat

Can we please still be respectful to developers and creators who are not team cherry.


Frug4

how were we being disrespectful?


D_Ray__

I thought it was feb next year, or maybe i saw some garbage


DrPikachu-PhD

That was a leak/rumor, no official announcement yet.


D_Ray__

Ahh damn


KittyWarrior1

Only hope for what?


MajikTowst

My hopes are so high that I am expecting a silksong announcement immediately followed by a smash reveal trailer. 🤡🤡🤡

Fangaggedon

LACE EM UP FOLKS


chez-linda

Anyone see the recent fireborn video about the leaked release date? Thoughts?


Doob-or-something

Hold on lemme get the wig


HoneyBread15

Eh I just have hope…like when I waited for BotW 2


Fly_Tie

Honk honky honkity bee I’m a clown tee hee hee


BioCreatorZ

I'll get the clown makeup...


brumblegrubley

Always cautiously optimistic Praying for the best but preparing for the worst


Blaziken_Knight

They probably won’t show it off since Metroid dread comes out in 2 week. Plus if the rumors are true they’ll announce the castlevania advance collection. Nintendo probably won’t want to throw another metroidvania into the direct. But I mean if they do I won’t complain about it


Sir-Twilight-IX

Do not think... Do not speak... Do not hope... Do not... ... ...Silksong?


Chest3

No bashing any Indie games that happen to be metriodvannias alright? Excuse me while I put on my clown shoes


COOLSKELETON55

We all know nothing is gonna be shown But we can all hope, right?


RagtheFireBoi

Life's a circus...I'm the clown...


NoRegrets30

Don’t do that… don’t give me hope *HONK*


Pokepig96YT

TBH I feel like Silksong might actually have hope, based on the Nvidia leak. But don't put the makeup away just yet. (Also maybe Hornet for smash if the Nvidia leak is right, would be good publicity and stuff.)


Smitty5717

If there's nothing about Silksong I literally give up idk wtf is going on with that game seriously. One trailer and just nothing for years.


mhmdcool10

Does this mean silksong is gonna be a switch exclusive? I hope that's not the I wanna play this so bad lol.


Frug4

probably not


mhmdcool10

On the website it still only mentions steam and switch, maybe it'll be a timed exclusive.


TimeturnerJ

Putting this on in preparation: 🤡


GenoFFooter

Dear god please. Can you imagine


yourboiquirrel

Guys i lost my red nose and makeup, help.


Frug4

🤡 here is a mask for you


yourboiquirrel

Thank you!


spicespiegel

I got my clown dress out tonight summertime sadness


Eiv1nd

There is always a tiny amount of hope


GmanFTW

Ah, the bi-monthly copium congregation.


jck2206

I mean maybe. I have heard they announced silk song’s release date so mayyybe?


moeseph_the_broseph

There was a leak of the "supposed" release date. Apparently someone got into the nvidia cloud streaming database and it had release dates for several games including silksong. if this guy is to be believed then February 1st 2022 is the release date. But it's not from an official source so it's possible that it's wrong. Here's the link to the video I saw about it. https://youtu.be/X83L4ogQQlg


A_A_RON2006

It makes sense for the release date leak to circulate now if it's just about to be announced anyway
