@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 .

@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.

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

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.

Current Games:

Astral Chain (Switch)

DOOM 3: BFG Edition (PC)

Paper Mario: The Origami King (Switch)

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.

Current Games:

Astral Chain (Switch)

DOOM 3: BFG Edition (PC)

Paper Mario: The Origami King (Switch)

@nintendobynature i am always looking for something for Switch. I bought Star Link and Wolfenstein so that should arrive in a while and theres a few more Switch games i have liked the look of that ill no doubt pick up but even i run out i have plenty of retro stuff i have not played or at least played in years so i can be patient when i have to be.

Looking back at the reveal times of the Nindies presentations, if there was one this week it would've been announced already. Nintendo gives 5 days notice for those.

I have to say I’m a little frustrated with Nintendo. They seem to be coasting, right now. They’ve stopped updating online with the upcoming games, My Nintendo Rewars sucks, and the lack of Nintendo Directs considering what they’ve said to expect this year is troubling.

I would have expected a Direct by now to give us some indication of what we will be sure to see befor E3. I’m a Nintendo apologist to a fault, but my patience is running thin.

I have the feeling that Nintendo only wants to release yoshi, Daemon x machina, Fire emblem and animal crossing before q3. We are not getting a new game in february, Yoshi releases in March, April is a third party month (Final fantasy, Dragon's dogma) May is probably fire emblem, June could Be deamon x machina and July could be Animal crossing. Hopefully they have a few other third party games or a WII U Port to announce as a Suprise. Town, Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3 and SMT V probably won't release in 2019 because they already have Pokemon, Luigi's mansion and Marvel ultimate alliance 3.

The last regular Direct was one day's notice.

Own up to Joy-Con Drift, Nintendo. We all know it's your fault

I think we will be getting a Nindie's direct this week: https://twitter.com/thepeekybird
(He got other things right , he teased marvel ultimate alliance 3 reveal during the game awards)

It's pretty obvious what's happening. Nintendo has cancelled all Directs going forward and Yoshi's Crafted World will be the last console game they release due to rumours being true that Apple are indeed buying Nintendo and all future projects will be iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Apple TV exclusive
