@nintendobynature yeah i think were definitely in the same mind set. I have been amazed by a few titles like Night in the Woods, Shantae, Hollow Knight and there are others that i could certainly say i have enjoyed but outside of those few i have named there isnt anything much that would get me really excited. Dont get me wrong i can look at a lot of the library and say yeah there are a lot of good games there just not the kind of games i want to play personally. I much prefer Nintendos own releases and the third party titles and if i run out of titles on Switch to play a lot of time i will play something from my WiiU/retro collection. I wouldnt want to sound like im hating on indie developers because they do a good job on a much smaller budget its only that what they make doesnt really appeal to me all that much outside of a few select titles a year.

Stop seeking in the internet for some direct 2019 news or leaks is more difficult than quit the cigar

@bluemage1989 I pick up what you're putting down 😉 for real though the only two games in my indie horizon are shovel knight king of cards dlc and bloodstaind RoTN.. there may be one or two out there I forgot about but those are definitely on my radar. With that said I'll just continue to play some Wii u and whatever keeps dropping on switch. I have so much to play at the moment but for some reason I'm still clamouring for new switch content. Mainly because I want new zelda on switch. Oor even ports of Zelda games would make me happy. That's why I'm so hung up on a direct so i can plan out my next couple month's of games either on Wii u or switch

I never asked you to stop dreaming. I was just sharing my take of the situation.

@GyroZeppeli
I am the source.

Seriously, though, uh... I thought I remembered seeing articles about Nintendo REALLY wanting to make Zelda more than an every 4-6 year thing (money's nice, yea?) as well as articles with insiders professing a new 2D Zelda is well along in development. So I'm just kind of putting 2 and 2 together.

In all honesty, though, I think 2019 is going to be the year of Metroid and Fire Emblem.

@nintendobynature You won't likely hear any announcements this early in the week. It will either be tomorrow or most likely, Wednesday if they do bother to announce anything.

I'm going to be DIRECT with you guys. I think nintendo need to SWITCH into announcement mode as right now they are DOCKED in no announcement mode.

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

Grumblevolcano

Yeah, Direct announcements happen on Tuesday/Wednesday except in very rare cases like when the August Smash Direct was announced on a Sunday.

@FragRed I think they've announced directs on a Monday for a Wednesday direct before but i could be wrong. The anticipation is driving me insane!

This is the worst set of puns I’ve ever seen, it’s Adam Sandler quality .

A bizarre musical mashup filled with Yes, Queen, and some other things.

Please notify me if you want to add me on Switch before sending a request. It makes my life easier.

@DannyBoi I just went back and checked the past two years. Regular directs, minis, and nindies, excluding e3 or directs focused on 1 game and I saw quite a few that were on Wednesdays( at least in North America). It was about the same for Wednesdays as it was for Thursday's. I think we can get a direct on any day really. I even saw some on a Tuesday

I can't see there being one, unless it's for a specific game. Nintendo pretty much showed off all the games that are coming this year by way of the September Direct. I mean there's NSMBUD, Yoshi's Crafted World, Daemon X Machina, Fire Emblem 3 Houses, Town, Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion 3, Next Gen Pokémon, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Bayonetta 3 (hopefully), Metroid Prime 4 (doubtful). I mean sure there's room for some games, lest they're ports of Wii U games, which I don't mind. But I wouldn't expect one this month focused on really new games. Maybe for release dates though....

Don't read too much into install bases, the attach rate on the 3DS wasn't particularly high and the Switch is doing very well on that metric. Consider this, the Switch has ~40% of the install base of the 3DS but Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has sold ~70% as many copies as Mario Kart 7.

Yeah that's true actually. Install base has very little correlation with the sales on an individual game. A good example to prove this point is the 3D Mario games. Mario 64, Mario Galaxy, Mario 3D Land, Mario Odyssey all sold around 10 million despite being on consoles with hugely different install bases.

It obviously means there's a particular 10 million people who like those games and that once they've all bought your console, additional console sales are meaningless with respect to 3D Mario.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

I think we'll get a Direct on Valentine's Day and Piranha Plant will launch that same day. I'm guessing the plan was always to have a February Direct to line up with Piranha Plant's release.

@Switch_Man I guarantee you there will be at least one or two big releases revealed for 2019 over the course of the year. We never know every notable release that's coming at the start of the year.

Ralizah

Switch_Man

@Ralizah I agree, it's just that probably won't happen until E3 though.

Switch_Man

Ralizah

@Switch_Man I don't know. This is the company that barely revealed anything at E3, only to announce major games like Luigi's Mansion 3 and Animal Crossing in some random Direct a few months later. You never know what Nintendo is going to do.
