Even Brands Were Thirsty For Today's Nintendo Direct
Speculation ran rampant on social media yesterday that Nintendo was holding a new Direct today (spoiler: they did). Nintendo even helped start up the rumor mill by trolling tweeting images of a Super Mario Odyssey Talkatoo and a fiery Chibi-Robo.
The little robot drew the most attention. It instantly became a meme among both Nintendo fans and video game brands who wanted to get in on the fun.

In hindsight, the little guy was probably a subtle nod toward the Dark Souls Switch port. (Thanks, Eurogamer!)
