I’m totally one hundred percent certain that there’s a one percent or higher that Nintendo will do something this week of some description. Maybe.

All jokes aside, it is really bad for their business to have such a long period of radio silence at a time that should be the very peak of the Switch's popularity. 3 and 4 years into a console life cycle are usually its best selling period. Which you really need to capitalize on with constant good games to keep people hyped.

@Anti-Matter

None of those are high-profile enough to make it onto a Direct.

You can't post screenshots or video captures to Facebook. It has been like this since the 3rd February. I wonder what's going on?

@Dezzy Yeah, it is bad. A company can have their shares drop by being quiet. And they are being quiet.

@1UP_MARIO No. Handsome jack took over Nintsndo. And now there is a space station hovering over nintendo.

Isn't there a pokemon video/direct on the 27th?

@DannyBoi I've been wondering if there will be a direct for Animal Crossing, too.

@Dezzy How long do you think until this silence affects Nintendo's share?

@Dezzy Have they really had a long period of silence though? We had
September - General Direct and B-K
October - ... I have no idea
November - Terry gameplay reveal
December - NSO Games and Indie World, MUA 3 DLC, Bravely Default II
January - Pokemon Direct with DLC, Home and PMD Remake, Byleth Reveal and release, Fire Emblem DLC date, MUA3 free update, new Animal Crossing trailer
February - so far the Animal Crossing Switch announced, NSO Games

I'm sure I've forgotten some (especially in October and November), but they've kept up a steady stream of updates and information, over the last couple months even without a general direct.

Nintendo do have a few DLC releases that don't have release dates that could be info while waiting for the next general Direct. MUA3 has the Fantastic Four wave which launches Spring 2020 and Luigi's Mansion 3 has the first wave of the multiplayer DLC which comes sometime before the end of April (first announced in December). Also Nintendo revealed the 2.0 update for Mario Maker 2 out of nowhere in December so they could do something similar for the next update.

The only major info that has to happen soon is Animal Crossing because we know so little and it releases March 20th. Well unless Animal Crossing is being delayed.

@Grumblevolcano Do you think Nintendo is planning something big?

link3710

@DannyBoi Genuine question: Why are you hoping for a Direct so badly? The Switch library is about to surpass the PS1 and PS4's lifetime library, placing it only behind the PS2 in terms of number of games. I'm curious what sort of experience you're hoping to find. Maybe there's games out now you aren't even aware of that would help?

Grumblevolcano

@DannyBoi Nope, I think 2020 will be like 2016 and 2018. Early year Direct(s) makes it seem like the year is promising and from E3 onwards Nintendo devotes all their attention to 1 game which "wins" E3 but is still a very boring experience seeing Nintendo ignore everything else.

In 2016, it was BotW (launching March 2017).

In 2018, it was Smash Ultimate (launching December 2018).

In 2020, I think it's BotW 2 (launching March 2021).

@link3710 @DannyBoi great question. I would also like to know.

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

@link3710 Because I want Nintendo to announce they are overhauling the Online service. Among other things.

DannyBoi

@Grumblevolcano This is the last week that we can get a direct. As next week there is a Pokemon presentationdirect.

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

Grumblevolcano

@DannyBoi You wouldn't find a major online overhaul in a Direct though, at most you'd get an announcement on GBA or N64 being added in a Direct in September.
