In response to Ross' tease, a Twitter user proclaimed he had "fingers crossed" for a Metroid reveal, Ross--who will host the event in the UK this Wednesday--replied, "I think you're going to be pleased." The UK host also notes, "A few other faves" will be on hand during the event.
A similar event will be held in New York during the morning of the same day. Keep your eyes primed for details on Shacknews, as Editorial Director Garnett Lee digs deep for all the hot scoops.
Does that mean we will see some kind of Mother/Earthbound game? Because that's what I would consider "unexpected".
I do not consider Metroid unexpected. Nor do I consider a new Mario, Zelda, Kirby, or Donkey Kong unexpected.
