Yep. Analysis is supposed to be for detailed, in-depth analyses of works.

Can a work that's only even just been announced be analyzed? The page being there at all is a bigger problem than whatever is in it, I think.

Are there any restrictions on Fridge pages for unreleased works? I don't see why there should be, as Fridge pages are allowed to be speculative.

^^I'm pretty sure it was announced last year. The E3 reveal wasn't the first time the game was revealed to be in development, either way, and just revealed more information about the game, like the intro to the plot, but I still doubt E3 provided enough insight to provide a very in-depth analysis of the game.

You can't really analyze a work that's not even out to be analyzed.

^I'm aware that this is the sort of thing that should be saved for when the game is released. While I haven't posted much in the unreleased works speculation cleanup thread, I've kept track of it.

Also, there's something that's been bugging me, but that I neglected to mention in my previous post. I thought Analysis pages were for analyzing how tropes are used or can be used, not for analyses of works (correct me if I'm wrong). Isn't that what Recap pages are for? I'm well aware that Recap pages are only applicable to released works, especially since they're spoilers-off pages.

Edit: Never mind, Namespace simply says Analysis pages exist for information that would otherwise make the description too long, without saying they're trope-specific.
