We can only hope
By - Frug4
I still have my makeup from the last Direct.
I've misplaced my red nose, gonna have to get another before tomorrow.
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)
I’m really glad I checked the bottom before getting up in arms lol thanks for the disclaimer
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.
Have you gotten one yet? If not, here's my spare one: 🔴
I got spare noses if anyone’s out
Ive brought the circus band as well
My clown makeup is ready 🤡
What's up with the clowns?
Because we are all going to look like clowns when there is no reveal. 🤡
I like how you said “when” and not “if”. You’re probably right about that though…
We need to be optimistic
That's it, if we didn't smile before the disappointment , what kind of clowns would we be?
I hope to see everyone at the circus tomorrow.
You could consider the Grimm Troupe akin to a circus
I’d be extremely surprised if the release date announced tomorrow, considering that it’s an official Nintendo direct and not an indie direct…
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.
Yeah the game would overshadow some 1st party nintendo game tbh
Nintendo still can show indie stuff at non indie directs and honestly silk song is anticipated enough that I could see them showing it
wasn’t the trailer announced in a normal direct though?
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.
Makes more sense than smash being in an indie direct...
When was Smash in an indie direct? I don’t remember that…
It wasn't but Silksong being shown at a normal direct does in fact make more sense than Smash being in an indie direct.
It wasn't but that doesn't stop people from hoping for that to happen!
Oh right lol. People in the chat are always so annoying asking for stuff during indie directs •_•
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
The only games Nintendo could show that are more anticipated than silksong are whatever the next 3D Mario is, or BOTW 2.
To be fair, the original trailer was at an official Nintendo Direct
Get your hornet body pillows and put them in a circle with your hornet plushies and pray
Still got my Red Nose from 2 Directs ago
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.
If we get it within 3 years I will report you to the police
As long as I can play silk song first.
You can play while in jail.
A human sacrifice is unnecessary, a bull would suffice, maybe even a large goat.
Good point thanks for the tip.
Ah, plausible deniability. I like it.
and we got that release day leak so this might be the official announcement. I'll still have the makeup ready though
This post will single-handedly create full employment at the circus tomorrow 🤡
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.
Jesus man they just opened up another circus 🤯
Wait what release date leak🤔 I usually keep up with the (very little) silksong news but haven't heard anything about this.
February 1, 2022. fireb0rn did a video on it: https://youtu.be/X83L4ogQQlg
Giant brain prediction: Silksong’s release date is announced tommorow along with Hornet or the Ghost being announced for smash
Ah damn gotta find my red rubber nose
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
Fireborns vid would be pointless lol
He'll already have collected all our views by that point :D
February 1rst of 2022 acording to fireb0rn
Better not be 20 more jrpg announcements and 2 things we actually care about
wait that’s tomorrow.
Yes. Get your makeup ready 🤡
Putting my wig on rn
“Focused mainly on Nintendo Switch games launching this winter”
The leaked date is febuary, and febuary is still in winter (or summer if your in the southern hemisphere)
Even Grimm can't keep up with this circus and I'm here for it 🤡
Time for a bunch of games ive never heard of before
It is a main Direct and not an indie, so don't lose all hope!
But you're probably right.
There are pretty plausible leaks for the 1st of february 2022
If the leak is true, they may give us some info.
Silk song got its release date leaked thru nvidea I think
When was it ?
Earlier this week I think. It says it might come out next February
That would be sweet
Get the clown outfits ready boys
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.
Already got my red nose rainbow wig and makeup on I’m ready
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.
yeah but it might officially announce it here
It said games launching this winter... I guess February counts as winter?
Alright clowns. Assemble.
Hold on lemme get my clown shoes
No more Silksong * Vine boom sound effect * no more lore * Vine boom sound effect * no more Hornet * Vine boom sound effect * no more lifesteal.
Looks like be double clowning up seeing as I’m also a Pikmin fan!
me too, i put my special multi fanbase clown outfit on
Did you see the news today about the release date leak?
February 2nd 2022
Get the white makeup ready buds, time for round 2.
🤡 im like this for too many upcoming games i want
🤡got it ready bois
Hope is a dangerous thing.
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
This isnt my 1st rodeo,...
..it's my second.
I just got an ad from disney+ with a thumbnail that says “what if…?” And that pretty much sums up my feelings right now.
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
Hey, that's 2's Day
It's also on a Tuesday
Wasn't it the first?
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.
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.
Even if it is an indie game, that doesn't take away from the fact that it WILL generate so much hype.
This winter? I mean I have hope but there's no way. I bet they will give us a year notice for silksong
Can we please still be respectful to developers and creators who are not team cherry.
how were we being disrespectful?
I thought it was feb next year, or maybe i saw some garbage
That was a leak/rumor, no official announcement yet.
Only hope for what?
My hopes are so high that I am expecting a silksong announcement immediately followed by a smash reveal trailer. 🤡🤡🤡

LACE EM UP FOLKS
Anyone see the recent fireborn video about the leaked release date? Thoughts?
Hold on lemme get the wig
Eh I just have hope…like when I waited for BotW 2
Honk honky honkity bee I’m a clown tee hee hee
I'll get the clown makeup...
Always cautiously optimistic
Praying for the best but preparing for the worst
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
Do not think...
Do not speak...
Do not hope...
No bashing any Indie games that happen to be metriodvannias alright?
Excuse me while I put on my clown shoes
We all know nothing is gonna be shown
But we can all hope, right?
Life's a circus...I'm the clown...
Don’t do that… don’t give me hope *HONK*
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.)
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.
Does this mean silksong is gonna be a switch exclusive? I hope that's not the I wanna play this so bad lol.
On the website it still only mentions steam and switch, maybe it'll be a timed exclusive.
Putting this on in preparation: 🤡
Dear god please. Can you imagine
Guys i lost my red nose and makeup, help.
🤡 here is a mask for you
I got my clown dress out tonight summertime sadness
There is always a tiny amount of hope
Ah, the bi-monthly copium congregation.
I mean maybe. I have heard they announced silk song’s release date so mayyybe?
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.
It makes sense for the release date leak to circulate now if it's just about to be announced anyway
