That Nintendo Direct Mini was nice surprise. I needed that.
Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition looks majestic and an ARMS character in Smash? I'm definitely down for that!

Nice mini direct. It's blatantly obvious that coronavirus is impacting things however.

Look's like Nintendo's Q2 is Xenoblade in May, and then Isle of Armor and Fighter Pack 6 in June, plus free updates for ACNH.

Meh, Mini Direct does pretty much nothing for me (aside from one or two third party games). Still waiting for the big reveals which are conspicuously absent.

Either that or they've deliberately planned to do the same as 2019, and have most of their releases in the second half of the year.

They have said before that something like 50% of all revenue comes from Q4 each year. That wasn't the exact figure but it's something like that. So maybe they've just decided to deliberately adjust to that fact.

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

I'm gonna call it, the ARMS fighter is going to be Biff and he'll be added as free DLC in ARMS as well.

I think fall/winter 2020 is going to be like the first half of 2018 and then Q1 2021 begins a 2017 esque year.

@IceClimbers Technically, they have that 51 games in 1 pack coming out as well. Usually, I avoid multi-game packs like that, but that looks like it might actually have Nintendo's usual level of polish on it, and if the online play let's you play with friends I'd say it definitely would be worth it at the probably 20$ mark it'll be at.

@Dezzy Most of 2019's releases were packed into the summer/early fall months in response to them missing their sales targets in the previous fiscal year due to a lack of titles in those months in 2018.

Given that Xenoblade is looking to be the only 1st party title at retail until August at the earliest most likely, it's pretty clear it wasn't planned that way.

Assuming there's no Direct between now and June and the E3 Direct drops on June 9th, looks like we'll go about a week again between the release of a first party Switch title (Club House 51 games) without knowing the release date for any other Switch first party title.

@Toy_Link the game Good Job is also a Nintendo Switch first party title.

@IceClimbers Usually I'd agree with you, but I think if you take a look at this direct it was pretty clearly aimed almost entirely at games coming out in May or June. I think they're holding games even tighter than usual due to the circumstances, so a late May direct (instead of E3) could easily reveal retail titles coming in July if things are looking to be in better shape by then.

Where is the direct. Where’s pikmin.

I know it was a quick mini direct but it was full of mobile ports, ports from the last decade. Board games and FTP.

@La-weejee Did I miss something? There wasn't a single mobile port in that entire direct. We had:

Remakes/remasters: Panzer Dragoon, XC:DE, Mr. Drill Drillland, Burnout Paradise Remastered, Star Wars Ep 1 Racer, Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Acadamy
F2P: Ninjala
Recent Ports: Borderlands, XCOM 2, Bioshock, Catherine: Full Body
Eshop titles: Totally Radical Delivery Service, Shineskai into the Depths,
DLC: Animal Crossing, MUA3, Pokemon, Smash, Ring Fit Adventures
Other: Bravely Default II

No mobile titles in there that I'm aware of?

My prediction for the second half of the year:

July - N/A
August - Pikmin 3
September - Mario Golf, Fighter Pack 7
October - Bravely Default II
November - Super Mario 3D World Deluxe, Pokemon DLC
December - N/A

Everything else is delayed to 2021 due to coronavirus, including NMH3.

@link3710 your right. I’m just upset there wasn’t anything for me. They looked like old games to me. I watched it till the end hoping for pikmin or some first party game.

Now we can all start again from the beginning and ask
“When’s the next direct”😂

@IceClimbers I'd wager we'll get at least one more new title. Given there were probably 6 non-port first party titles planned, I'd wager we'll see whatever the big summer game was supposed to be positioned as their holiday title. Something like Pikmin 4 or Paper Mario that usually wouldn't be a holiday tentpole title.

Elder Scrolls Blades is a mobile game.

Right so Q2 is:
April - Nothing
May - Xenoblade
June - Clubhouse Games, Isle of Armor DLC, Challenger Pack 6 DLC

My prediction for the rest of the year is:
July - Luigi's Mansion 3 DLC pack 2, Mario Maker 2 3.0 update
August - Pikmin 3
September - Bravely Default II, Challenger Pack 7 DLC, GBA games for NSO
October - No More Heroes III, ARMS 2 or ARMS expansion
November - Super Mario 3D World, The Crown Tundra DLC
December - Challenger Pack 8 DLC, Mario Maker 2 4.0 update
