I'm not sure what people who are disappointing were expecting. This side of E3 it was always going to be a "clearing the decks for E3" sort of Direct. Consider the timeline for games they talked about...

April 25: Puyo Puyo Tetris
April 28: Mario Kart 8
May 11: Minecraft
May 23: Disgaea 5
May 26: Ultra Street Fighter 2
June 13-15: E3
June 16: Arms
June 23: Ever Oasis
June 27: RPG Maker Fes
July 21: Splatoon 2
July 25: Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star
July 28: Hey! Pikmin!

Everything before E3? They can't talk about E3 anyway, that stuff needed to be in this Direct assuming there's not another Direct in May. The stuff they talked about after E3? Some of it is super close to E3 but even so that's content they now don't need to spend as much time talking about at E3. Which means at E3 they can spend more time talking about Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade, Fire Emblem Warriors and whatever else they have.

Game wise I wasn't expecting much more, but the reveals for some of their announced games were underwhelming. Especially Splatoon 2, Salmon Run just looks okay, but I feel like there's more interesting reveals they haven't shown yet. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's announcements weren't very exciting either. Announcing more Switch features like VC, browsers and apps, customization options, etc. would've been more interesting.

Overall, it's not that they didn't have big announcements, but the announcements they had weren't that good.

@andrew20 Yeah, I'd give this direct a B+. It's use was to inform some needed information on what's coming around the corner and tying loose ends, especially in the Amiibo department.

It's obvious that Nintendo's E3 is going to be the 'big one', in terms of information and game announcements. Though I shouldn't get my hopes too high in fear of possible disappointment, but Nintendo is known for their surprises. For better or for worse.

@AlwaysGreener The past 2 years have been bad.
Well 2016 was better than 2015.
2014 was the best of the Nintendo lost generation

@Frosty_09 I think an Animal Crossing Direct could happen which focuses on the upcoming mobile game. If you look at the Nintendo mobile games release dates, a May/June release for Animal Crossing seems realistic.

  • December 2016: Super Mario Run
  • February 2017: Fire Emblem Heroes

Not sure if it'll be in a Direct, but May is usually a big month for Pokemon news.

I hope they save the Pokemon announcement for E3 instead of posting another 30 second trailer of box art that no one cares about.

As well as the E3 thing — inevitably on Tuesday the 13th — I think there will be some sort of Splatoon 2 direct before its release in July. Arms literally releases the Friday of E3 week, so there's no way that gets its own thing outside of the digital event. Plus Nintendo still has a lot of convincing to do on arms, so they'll give it 5-10 minutes on the big stage.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

@Haru17 Nintendo's already confirmed there's no press conference for E3. We're likely getting a digital event like 2014/2015.

@Grumblevolcano I know. I literally mentioned 'digital event' in my post. The digital event that will predictably, inevitably be at the same time as Nintendo's old pressers on E3 Tuesday at 9 am.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

Are we even getting a direct? We didn't get one last year, did we

They didn't really have enough for a Direct. It was mostly BotW. So hopefully this year, they have more to show.

No, but Nintendo's 2016 Pokemon and Zelda + other 3DS games Treehouse stream started at Tuesday at 9 am. That was also before the "Switch" was announced, so I don't think it's comparable.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.
