I imagine they’ll have some sort of a Direct in March. At this point we really don’t have much after Animal Crossing. I’m a little surprised Pokémon is releasing the same month as AC. They could have held off until April for that one.

As it stands, it seems like there will need to be something that drops between the Direct and E3.

There may not be a direct this month. Unless they are having one on Thursday.

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

Ugh how tiresome Nintendo. Guess I'll go and buy a few PS4 games instead.

@Dezzy I know. It is getting irratating.

@fortius54 April is the least important month of the year for Nintendo regarding game releases because that is when a new fiscal year starts so a game releasing in March adding extra sales to the current fiscal year instead of April adding sales to the new fiscal year looks a lot better in the April investor meeting. I'd imagine the most we're getting from Nintendo in April is DLC/updates like the next Smash fighter.

@DannyBoi dude relax, it will happen eventually. Just be patient getting yourself worked up day after day after day is not going to make it happen any sooner, you're wasting your own time and energy. Take your mind off things by...... Playing some video games

@DannyBoi
Chills.
No need to feel irritate if there is no Direct at the moment.
While waiting the Direct, you can play other games you have.

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)

Go relax and do some farming on your handheld. Take your mind off things and just be in the moment (and a tractor).

@Rexenokid I get why, nothing's happening after Animal Crossing and that is less than a month away. How much this affects people depends on how much backlog they have.

The last chance for one this week is Wednesday morning. They usually announce the livestream on their Twitter at 7 AM PST.

@WaffleKnight Given Pokemon Day celebrations, I'd say last chance for a Direct announcement is in 4 hours. The Animal Crossing Direct was announced at 10pm UK time which was different from the usual 2pm UK time announcements.

@Grumblevolcano Yeah. We still have Trials of Mana, TW101, and uh... Supermash? With dates beyond March. But that's basically it, almost every game has a release by March 31st.

Which is fine by me, the Switch has soooo many games. But yeah, the release calendar hasn't been this bare since... Uh... Ever as far as I remember.

@Grumblevolcano

Lol have you been making me check the news at 2pm every day for no reason then?

@Grumblevolcano I think people are scared it’s going to be a repeat of 2018. A lacklustre year in many people’s eyes. And regarding Smash Bros, I think April is too early for next DLC fighter. I think Nintendo will save it for E3 when they’ll need all the announcements they can get.

@link3710 I was talking about 1st party stuff but even if you also look at 3rd party, Trials of Mana is the only one with an actual release date (April 24th). Wonderful 101 is a guess of April based on reward tiers (no specific release date), December Indie World games are also not specific release dates for stuff past March (e.g. Supermash is May but not specific release date).

@Dezzy We don't know if Animal Crossing was a one off or the new setup, just keep an eye at both times.

@FragRed 2018 was fine until the 2nd half. Sure if you own a Wii U and didn't want to double dip it would've been boring but still by mid-January you knew the basic lineup for the first half which had Q2 a lot more packed than it is now:

February - Bayonetta 1+2
March - Kirby Star Allies
April - Labo
May - Tropical Freeze
Spring - Hyrule Warriors (confirmed to be May in March Direct), Mario Tennis Aces (confirmed to be June in March Direct)

Really the big downfall for first half of 2018 was the Dark Souls delay, the fact that a big 3rd party release was releasing the same day on Switch as the other consoles but then got delayed on Switch and released 5 months later. A similar situation of which happened with DOOM Eternal this year.

@Grumblevolcano Yeah I was just pointing out that this extends to third party as well, far beyond the norm. No release dates at all in Q2 and beyond (besides Trials) is pretty weird.

FragRed

@link3710 Not just no release dates but a lot of yet to be announced third party games are being spotted getting ratings in various countries.

@link3710 Disaster Report 4 and Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 have specific release dates, but yeah past that the entire release schedule is a mystery.

There's several 3rd party releases that need updates that could very well be Q2 or early Q3 titles: SpongeBob, Lego Star Wars, Jedi Academy, Crystal Chronicles, Panzer Dragoon Remake...
