YES. It was SO. AWESOME! They showed some new BotW 2 footage (though it was mostly a teaser still), came out with release dates for Bayonetta 3, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, Bravely Default II, AND they surprise-dropped a demo for the newly announced F-Zero FFX that's due out in late 2020. They also announced that Pikmin 4 is officially in the works and have confirmed a new Pikmin Collection in the meantime (with a Fall 2020 window). They also had a Smash Ultimate segment that revealed the newest fighter (Non-Specific Action Figure).

Last but not least, they announced that Mother 3 is finally coming to the West.

Currently playing: Link's Awakening (Switch), WarioWare Gold

I absolutely never saw them crossing the F-Zero franchise over with Final Fantasy (and X at that!) but somehow the direct showed it will work and be fantastic. Samurai Goroh best watch out - next time he overtakes I'm summoning Bahamut to take him down!

Easily my most anticipated cross-over ever!

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

@Rexenokid I'd guess mostly the former, look at the reactions to an indie presentation being announced for example. The comments are mostly stuff like "this is a sign that the proper direct is near", "where's the real direct" and "nobody asked for this".

I think my reason for wanting a direct to come out is so that I can budget and plan in advance. I only like to spend a set amount of my wages for discretionary purchases like games. I tend to always really like Nintendo's first party games and they often get first preference. Not knowing what will be coming out over the next few months has me hesitant to buy some of the third party games that are currently available. If for example, I knew that I wasn't a fan of whatever is released in April or May, then I'd look at what else might fill the gap.

No Direct announcement at 2pm UK time, getting ever closer to the first year since Directs started that there's been no general Direct in January or February (I'm counting 2018's Direct Mini as a general Direct as it was pretty much a general Direct that wasn't streamed).

@Grumblevolcano I think people are scared it’s going to be a repeat of 2018. A lacklustre year in many people’s eyes.

Exactly. This is the Switch's 4th year. It should be the absolute peak of its lifecycle, and yet things are very quiet. 2018 was understandable because they really blew their load in 2017 in order to get that early momentum. The same shouldn't be happening now though. So why is everything so quiet?

People seem to have also forgotten that they have both their console and handheld divisions all working on Switch games now. We should be getting the equivalent of the Wii U and 3DS libraries combined (obviously a single 3DS game doesn't translate into a single Switch game though).
I really thought that at this point in time it would be like the second half of 2019....all the time.

I'm not entirely sure why that hasn't happened!

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

I'm not worried. I hear Pikmin 4 is nearly complete and should be released soon...

A Nintendo direct needs to happen soon. The 2020 year is so bare with only 2 or 3 major releases announced yet, and Nintendo should announce some things soon. Even though I hope with all my being that there will be an announcement today, I am pretty sure that that will not happen.

Where did you hear this from? Or is it just a suspicion?

@Dezzy Probably HD development, Nintendo had trouble in the Wii U era because of the jump from standard definition (Wii) to HD (Wii U). Now this is happening with the 3DS side as 3DS is a standard definition console meanwhile Switch is HD.
