Nintendo May Be Teasing New Game With Emio Video

6 days ago 37

Nintendo seems to be hinting at a new game, as it shared a teaser video on its social media and YouTube channels called “Emio.” It features a person in a trench coat wearing a paper bag with a smiling face drawn on it. 

Here’s the full video. It’s quite short, only coming in at 15 seconds. Initially, there is a blank wall with a spotlight on it. Then, at the 4 second mark, the lighting shift and the individual appears. The person doesn’t really move, though the video does focus on the the hands and bag mask after a bit. Japanese text appears after he vanishes again, and it suggests this is the smiling man. On social media, the Nintendo of America account uses the #WhoIsEmio hashtag with the post about it.

The imagery doesn’t seem connected to any recent or upcoming known Nintendo releases. Luigi’s Mansion 2 HDshowed up at the end of June 2024. The next title showing up is Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition on July 18, 2024. The company hasn’t revealed any game for August 2024, however. There’s basically a one-month gap between the release of Nintendo World Championships and The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom on September 26, 2024. 

There’s no word on when we could hear more about the possible new Nintendo game tied to this Emio teaser.
