Everything to know about 4.0 from the Fan Fest

So in less than 8 hours the las vegas fan fest will begin and with it we will get the first information tidbits about 4.0.

The next few days will see thousand of redundant threads made to analyze the title. trailer, the logo and yoshie-P’s T-shirt for clues.

Since I’m very nice and also very clever, I’ll make this thread here in advance and edit in every piece of info that we get. Of course there will still be separate threads most likely, but I will make sure that those who want it, shall find everything here.
