Being 3 minutes long I'm not expecting much from Nintendo. 1.5 minutes of that trailer will most likely be Miyamoto introducing it, followed by a full 30 seconds of whatever new logo they cooked up leaving less than a minute to show it off.
And I wonder why it is a "preview". I bet they are anticipating a real leak this time and wanted to get ahead of it.
No, that's against the rules. The link will not be posted anywhere. Not on NeoGAF, not on Nintendo's twitter, and definitely not on Nintendo's Youtube channels. The video will be unlisted. You will have to iteratively enter in YouTube video IDs in order to find it.
Yeah, and wouldn't it be neat? We think we're just going to see the console design and stuff in the preview, but it could really blow the lid off other embargoes as well. Like okay guys, it's been revealed, so we can now reveal we're working on this! And we see a bunch more shit tomorrow after the trailer.
Seriously, and it ain't happening but if say Retro is like here's Metroid Prime 4 I would absolutely blow a gasket.
Ok, looking through the last few pages, firstly, that Mario is, as many have said, fucking horrifying, but it's Halloween soon, so it kind of works, and that Dev kit looks legit, so I wouldn't be at all surprised if that's damned close to the tablet component.
3 minutes is no time at all though. I'd be surprised if we see the entire system in detail with such a small timeframe, that will need introduction, closing monologue, and enough to ensure they convey the gimmicks and functionality of the system, even if only broadly.
Plus it's Nintendo. Going in expecting to be disappointed always serves you better than expecting to be excited or to have understood what in the hells they were thinking.
Also, 3PM GMT? Guess I know when I'll be going for a poo at work today!
What they need to do is right from the very beginning (meaning THIS preview trailer) show exactly what the NX is, what it does, how it looks, and what it's called. There is no reason to be cryptic about the device itself. There are plenty of games (hopefully) to reserve for timed hype via announcements and stuff.
I think that's what this preview vid will be: something to show people what the device is, and possibly something about the overall platform (online/community stuff.) And a name so the branding can begin.
Wait, just how coincidental is it that Rockstar is showing RDR2 tomorrow on the day the NX is being revealed? There's 365 days in a year, so it's, well, a 1/365 of a chance. Which isn't very good odds.
