@NintendoByNature Correct, but we have confirmed the character will be revealed in the Livestream itself. If there was a direct this month, or any time prior to release, it would be in there. I'm honestly surprised it wasn't revealed at TGA considering they apparently had no interest in doing it at an event of their own.

@link3710 good point. I'm trying to recall how the September direct went down. Was banjo revealed as available today in the September direct and to tune in after the direct to showcase his move set? Same with hero/dq at e3?

I guess I'm still not ready to rule anything out with Nintendo. I mean, after All, 2 years ago we had a mini direct announced at like 10am and the direct was at 11am that day lol.

@NintendoByNature Yeah, the last two times the livestream was announced during the direct. Only Terry's was announced on its own. And well, Joker didn't get one.

@link3710 gotcha, you're probabaly right. Im ust clinging to any direct hopes lol. Directs are my favorite gaming moments outside of gaming istelf.

@NintendoByNature The September Direct was:

  • Announced September 3rd (only hints about content were Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokemon Sword/Shield)
  • Aired September 4th
  • Banjo's release date announced in the Direct to be same day with the Smash stream happening straight after the Direct

So I think just like the Pokemon Direct deconfirmed a normal Direct last week, the Smash livestream being announced in advance today deconfirms a normal Direct for this week.

Ugh, the torture continues. It's probably just gonna be February and we should stop paying attention for a while.

They wouldn't do this livestream by itself if the Direct was in the next few weeks. They'd just wait for that.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@NintendoByNature Honestly, I wouldn't hold your breath for it being soon either. A smash reveal is always a major part of any direct, so if we're getting one now, that means there won't be one until after the character releases. Which since that could be any time since it's not announced yet (and they could delay it with no one being the wiser), there's no reason to assume we'll get a Direct until March at the earliest.

Arrogant Nintendo again. Thinking they can do without a Direct.

I suspect at this point the direct is in feb. they are just getting the stuff that would take up too much time and are guaranteed sales out of the way. There is no way they are going to let animal crossing drop without at least one more reminder to people to buy it.

@Octane Honestly, why can't they? Gods & Monsters, FF VII Remake (and Avengers) just got delayed, leaving Ori and Doom Eternal the only major competition for Q1. And Doom Eternal is coming to Switch later so... April's terrible timing for a release with FFVII, Cyberpunk, R3make, Trials of Mana (and probably Dying Light 2) all over the course of a couple of weeks. They can coast without issue thanks to the lack of competition, I think Switch actually has a better Q1 at this point than PS4 or XB1, so they don't need to tell us anything until the AC wave is over.

@link3710 This was my attempt at a joke

They're fine. Though I wouldn't mind getting some info on what's coming after Animal Crossing.

@rallydefault So yeah, like I said, you're totally entitled to dislike the games, but why would you want other people who do enjoy them, not to? What's so hard about just ignoring them? Does them enjoying the games have any effect on your whatsoever?

I just don't understand why you'd wish for the games not to happen. It sounds like your just out to spite people who like something you don't.

Uh... I feel like I'm being punked. Are you being serious?

I don't want the games to be made because I'd rather those devs focus on other games. Simple as that. Nothing about the fanbase...ever. I really don't know what's going on here lol <looks for secret cameras>

Obligatory "your opinion is wrong" post from you, my man. Keep rocking. Don't ever change.

I am starting to wonder what is up with pikmin 4 though... I doubt Nintendo would cancel it even if they will sit on it for a bit since it is Miyamoto-dono's baby. I don't know why but I feel like this year will be less new IPs (Nintendo has done pretty well on that) and more revisits and some b listers since the switch is doing well enough to reach out to gamers that like other genres.

@rallydefault I was absolutely being serious. Your reasoning was so surprising to me that I thought I was misunderstanding you. You ask if you were being punked, but here I am feeling like you must be trolling me.

You actually don't want games made that other people like, because you don't like them? That doesn't seem a tad selfish?

The games industry is huge, there are literally thousands of developers around the world churning out thousands of games every year. There's room for games for everyone.

Assuming the Smash character is Dante, I'm guessing that he will be made available on January 30th and that the next direct will be on February 13th which will include news about a special feature in DMC3 exclusively for Switch (maybe something Bayonetta related) based on the remaining dates that the DMC producer teased

I'm torn between January 30th and February 13th for the next Direct. Nintendo could be doing all these things separately to make sure they're not drowned out by the sound of next gen and inevitable teraflop discussions (you can already see the debates about rumours regarding which is more powerful between PS5 and Series X and those are just rumours).

So I think it could be that the entire month is Directs:

  • January 9th - Pokemon Direct (Sword/Shield DLC and Mystery Dungeon DX announced)
  • January 16th - Smash livestream (5th Fighters Pass character announced, maybe more?)
  • January 23rd - Animal Crossing Direct (Shows off a lot more about New Horizons which we don't know that much about despite release March 20th)
  • January 30th - General Direct (no Pokemon or Animal Crossing info because Directs already happened for those, Smash info is on Fighters Pass 2)

But I could see instead something like:

  • January 30th - Nintendo announces a new mobile game and that gets its own presentation
  • February 6th - Indie World
  • February 13th - General Direct
