There’s been plenty going on in the Nintendo world today. First, retailers find mysterious game listings for the Nintendo Switch, then GameStop tweets (and deletes) about an unannounced Nintendo Direct.
Update: The Nintendo Direct happened! Here are the announcements.
Now, Nintendo has continued on the path of confusing their frothing fanbase. The official Nintendo of America Twitter account tweeted a picture of Chibi Robo on fire with no associated text.

This would be confusing enough without context, but it might have a deeper meaning. Last month, ResetEra, had a forum titled “What is a Nintendo Direct in January? A Chibi Robo on fire.”
That a definite link… It means that Nintendo has seen it all. All the fan wishes, complaints and Reggie memes.
After tweeting an image Chibi Robo on fire, Nintendo NY tweeted a picture of a hotdog man.

It’s unclear if they are related, but I’m siding with the flaming Chibi Robo prophet, not the weiner man. The question is, will there even be a direct?!
