We know so little about Nintendo’s 2020. I’m afraid this year will be just like 2018. Realistic predictions aside, here are my wishes for a January/February Nintendo Direct.

  • The Direct will open with the reveal of Pikmin 4. I know this has become a joke at this point but it makes complete sense. The game has apparently been in development for a very long time and it would make a lot of people very happy. Pikmin 4 releases in July.
  • Fire Emblem Three Houses DLC. Includes a brand new epilogue storyline for each one of the 4 routes. Releases in February.
  • A new trailer for TemTem.
  • A new trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles. Shows new areas and new quests. Releases in May.
  • Tomodachi Life 2. Releases in April.
  • We Love Katamari HD is revealed. Releases in June.
  • Persona 3 and Persona 4 are getting HD remasters and coming to Switch!
  • The Direct ends with the reveal of Super Mario Odyssey 2. No gameplay is shown.

I was going to bite on the Steam version of Disco Elysium, but I get the feeling that one is definitely coming to Switch. Text heavy games I’d rather play in the comfort of my bed or on the balcony. The game also has low specs for the PC, so getting it running would be easy.

My prediction is that we see it featured on the next direct.

@Octoguy Funny you mention 2018 because that year was really bad except for a few exceptions like Outlast and Smash. Im still hoping for that Nintendo Direct to come this month.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses DLC is now out for the next Direct, they just posted the full reveal on youtube. It's coming out in February too, surprisingly enough. Still not expecting a direct til April but I'll admit Byleth being the DLC character would explain why they didn't want the bad press in a direct if there is a February one.

I didn't even watch the last Direct just now.
I knew it will drive me upset from what contents revealed.
I don't need to know, even if i accidentally knew and saw from the articles above, i quickly scroll the page, roll my eyes and pretend they don't exist and will never bothering me.

So, i just wait for another Direct that focusing on Animal Crossing New Horizons and other Nintendo Switch games.

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (100)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4 (96)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (95)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (91)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

@Anti-Matter it wasn’t really a direct anti. I thought you don’t like smash. Why would it upset you. It was a character reveal.

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

@1UP_MARIO
Just take a look the latest additional Mii costume from Ubisoft.
I saw something from rated Mature games.

@Anti-Matter oh it was only a costume but I guess you have your views.

@link3710 I'm starting to lean towards your April general Direct idea:

  • January 17th - TMS#FE Encore
  • January 28th - Byleth as DLC for Smash Ultimate
  • February 12th - FE Three Houses story DLC (the 4th house path is probably as long as the others?)
  • March 6th - Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX
  • March 20th - Animal Crossing New Horizons

Between these, LM3 DLC (Pack 1 comes sometime before 30th April), Mario Maker 2 3.0 and 3rd parties Nintendo could probably make do with no general Direct before April provided there's a mobile game announcement around January 30th to satisfy investors.

EDIT: Nintendo could even announce Brain Training in NA for April and then problem solved also on the retail front.

@Anti-Matter Sorry but i still don't understand what made you dislike this Smash Direct so much

@MuhBael Altair showed up as a costume (without even referencing Assassin's Creed somehow), and anything that was ever in an R rated game they hate with a passion.

And yeah, that's what I was thinking. The next quarter is literally packed with stuff happening every 2 weeks, they don't need to draw attention away from that right now.

I'll admit to wanting a Direct simply for the hype & excitement, when in reality I don't really need them to announce anything new for awhile.

I'm in the middle of Torna, recently obtained Blade Strangers & SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy (I got them more to play when inbetween other things, so I've barely scratched the surface of either of them), and there are still many things out I want to play such as New Super Lucky's Tale, Daemon X Machina, Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD, the plethora of RE games (which is a series I've yet to touch), the latter two DMC games, and even TMS #FE (though I generally disagree with the censorship).

Even as someone who generally doesn't give a flip about indies I have more than enough to look forward to on Switch.

Currently Playing:
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

IceClimbers

@RR529 I'm in the same boat. I'm currently in the middle of Luigi's Mansion 3 and still need to finish Astral Chain. I haven't even touched any of the games I bought in the sales over the past few months like Ori or AC: The Rebel Collection, let alone the other games in my Switch backlog.

Smash is gonna take up a week or two again thanks to Byleth's release, plus Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is coming soon and will last me quite a while on its own.

What i need for my Switch are more ports. I would love to see a Dead Space Collection, Metroid Prime Collection, Fallout 3/4 or a GTA. Direct can't come soon enough

There have been so many announcements or leaks already by now - Bioshock, Metro, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, Fire Emblem Four Houses - that I am increasingly inclined to believe that we simply aren't getting a Direct this month. However, we're sure to get something before Animal Crossing releases, even if it's just an Animal Crossing-only presentation.

I think the Direct will be after 25 January 2020, the year Golden Mouse based on Chinese Zodiac.
Nintendo want to start on the year of Golden Mouse since Nintendo (Ox sign) will got great fortune on Rat year.

I don't know, April is a pretty long ways to not reveal what's coming up for the rest of this year.

I guess I'm in the minority in thinking the first half of the year is pretty barren, though: I'm not an Animal Crossing fan. So, yea, I don't have that big "Spring game" to look forward to like I do most years, so I'm bummed. I'm sure I'll boot up Fire Emblem for the DLC, and I'll keep doing my Mario Maker thing like I always do between games, but sadly nothing big to look forward to on my Switch for the next while.

So, for a person like me, a Direct sooner rather than later would be great.

@rallydefault it's pretty barren for me too. I'm not an AC fan either. So I just have a few games lined up for q1 thus far. Dmc3 megaman zx collection and possibly metro redux.

April is trials of mana

@NintendoByNature
Oh, that's good that Trials is April. I'll definitely get that. Metro is a big maybe. I have one of the Metro games on PC and it never really hooked me, but to be fair I didn't really give it my attention much.

Other thing I was thinking was doing the Assassin's Creed ports for the next couple months. I played through the second game and one of the expansions back when they first came out, so I could pick up with 3 on Switch. I have a 25$ Amazon gift card, so I'm gonna wait a couple weeks and see if it goes on sale.

Mana Collection is another possibility, but I feel like I'd buy it and not enjoy it as much as I'm imagining. That tends to happen with super old games: nostalgia is a powerful thing lol (talking more about the first two games of the collection)
