There isn't going to be one in January. Possibly in March.

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

@dannyBoi I still believe in january or february, march is just too far away, If they want to release marvel ultimate alliance alongside the movie, and fire emblem in may they can't wait until march to announce new games. It's also logical that they do a direct before the earning reports on the 31st of january for there investors. If Nintendo doesn't have any release dates of first party games expect yoshi people aren't going to have a lot of confidence in nintendo. And although sword art online, final fantasy and dragon's dogma are releasing in march these are games that are more for the Japanese audience. (although I also like these games)

I'm going predict February 14th Direct and the earnings report announcement ends up being lots of info on Mario Kart Tour.

You know you have a problem when every morning you wake up hoping for a direct. Sad life I live I suppose ūüėē

It’s gonna be February and I’ll guess they’ll announce paper mario colour splash. My guess not real

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

@DannyBoi i mean i dont mind them keeping technology and software close to the vest and all but, we all know a direct should be coming soon. It would bode well for them to at the very minimum tell consumers were having a direct in the month of January. And you can expect it on this date. It would get lots of people talking for weeks about Nintendo as opposed to days like the way they usually announce it. I guess im no business type though

I still think there's a slight chance remaining for a Direct in January, even with all the big news that's dropped lately. With the exception of Yoshi, pretty much all the big Switch announcements over the past few weeks were for ports: Dragon's Dogma, NES games, etc. Maybe Nintendo saw the negativity surrounding the massive amounts of ports that filled last year's directs, and they're focusing on getting the port announcements out of the way so they can focus on brand new games in the next direct.

Wishful thinking, I know, but I'm a Nintendo fanboy, I can't help myself!

But just because of KH3 they should announce something themselves.

@Grumblevolcano That would only make sense if those two games were coming to the Switch.

@ilikeike Definitely not the case when the majority of the unknown releases for this year are going to be ports. That's just reality.

@IceClimbers Of course there will be tons of ports this year, but I don't think Nintendo will need to lean on them as much as they did in 2018 since there's way more non-port big games this year than there were last year. Animal Crossing, Yoshi, Fire Emblem, Luigi's Mansion, Town, Pokemon, Daemon x Machina, Mortal Kombat, Doom Eternal, Crash Racing, to name a few. Obviously there will be many ports announced in each Direct, but I think that the new games will get much more emphasis.

@ilikeike I need details on Monkey Ball, Grandia and Langrisser dammit.

@FragRed If they don't have the announcements yet to compete, it may be better to let the games pass for a bit and then reveal stuff.

@ilikeike Given there hasn't been a Direct yet, I'm pretty sure the reason the announcement happened was to show Switch had upcoming games with actual known release dates after Travis Strikes Again. Everything afterwards was vague like "Spring 2019" or "2019" until the announcements.

@Grumblevolcano I think Nintendo have missed a big trick by not releasing anything in February - and I assuming that to be the case due to the lack of any Direct or random trailer/release date drops via social media. They really could have kept the Switch momentum going after such a successful holiday season.

@FragRed Honestly the situation now makes me think about how things would've been if Smash didn't end up being the major seller it was. As for February, I agree but regarding physical (I do think Yoshi's the next physical Switch game). I do however see digital exclusive stuff appearing in February, at the least you'll likely have Piranha Plant for Smash.
