Hahahahahahahaha... where have you been the past four years? There's a good reason the term "fake news" entered the popular lexicon.

Not to get tooo political but I think it's worth clearing up here that this term has two very different meanings. The original meaning was in reference to troll factories spreading misinformation through social media. Often without any kind of obvious direct source, always without any kind of established media source. These usually had very strong and very obvious political motivations. The second use of the term was a "I know you are but what am I" from certain political figures who disliked what was being reported. Which, is kinda what the media should be doing? Reporting the kinds of things that make political figures uncomfortable? But that's another discussion for another forum.

In the case of Switch leaks obviously 4Chan is the troll factory, we shouldn't believe what comes out of 4chan. The likes of Bloomberg and Eurogamer are the established media organisations. So personally I'll take the view that people painting Bloomberg and Eurogamer with the same brush as 4chan are only doing so because they dislike what is being reported. Not saying all established media is always correct, it never was, but painting them with the same brush as 4chan is in my view is a bit much......

Yes, the term was first used by the mainstream media when they were looking for excuses for losing the most winnable presidential election in American history (others included Russian hacking, Russian collusion, systemic racism, and the electoral system that has been in place for centuries). It was then repurposed for other uses. And the demagoguery only works because the mainstream media did everything it possibly could to earn the "fake news" label. Some of the greatest hits from the past year include the Lafayette photo op story, the story about how there wouldn't be a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of 2020, the Russian bounties story, spiking the Hunter Biden laptop story because it might hurt their candidate's election prospects (and then bragging about it after the election went their way), and calling anyone who thinks COVID-19 came from a lab in Wuhan a racist conspiracy theorist. So as a result, trust in the media is at an all-time low.

@Euler
I disagree with your recounting/colouring of said events and I suspect our politics don't line up much at all. So lets leave it at that. All I'll say is that reality doesn't often neatly fit into what's comfortable or convenient. If the world as you see it all fits perfectly into a particular narrative? You're probably missing something

Next Nintendo Direct probably will highlight more things about Pokemon BDSP, more new footage of Pokemon Legend of Arceus. Probably during September 2021.

@Anti-Matter They.. usually have Indie directs for that purpose. They usually never go into that in a General direct, and they always usually have General directs in September to announce the games coming out the following year.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

@Slowdive I'd guess it'll be like the September 2019 Direct where there's a lot of reminding people about games coming later on in the year and have just a few new announcements. For 2019, at the time of the Direct these were upcoming known 2019 Nintendo IP and Nintendo published releases:

  • Daemon X Machina (September 13th)
  • Link's Awakening (September 20th)
  • DQXIS (September 27th)
  • Luigi's Mansion 3 (October 31st)
  • Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (November 5th)
  • Pokemon Sword/Shield (November 15th)

DLC/updates:

  • Banjo release date and Terry reveal for Smash
  • Tetris 99 DLC wave 2

Games focused on a lot were:

  • Smash Ultimate
  • Pokemon Sword/Shield
  • Animal Crossing New Horizons

New announcements were:

  • Super Kirby Clash (shadow drop)
  • Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore (January 17th 2020)
  • Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition (2020)
  • SNES for NSO (day after the Direct)

I'd guess the Direct would air September 8th to allow a final reminder about WarioWare Get It Together so upcoming Nintendo IP and Nintendo published releases for 2021 would be:

  • WarioWare Get It Together (September 10th)
  • Metroid Dread (October 8th)
  • Mario Party Superstars (October 29th)
  • Shin Megami Tensei V (November 12th) - It's Nintendo published in Europe so I'm including it
  • Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl (November 19th)
  • Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp (December 3rd)

DLC/updates I think would appear:

  • Smash Ultimate final fighter
  • Age of Calamity DLC wave 2
  • Animal Crossing update
  • Mario Golf update

Games I think will be focused on a lot:

  • Smash Ultimate
  • Pokemon Legends Arceus
  • Splatoon 3

New announcements I think would happen:

  • Shadow drop eshop title
  • Zelda Wii U ports (February 2022)
  • Kirby (Spring 2022)
  • Another port or remaster (2022)

Throw in among those a mixture of already announced and new announcement 3rd party games. Start with Smash Ultimate, close with the Nintendo/Microsoft collaboration whatever that ends up being.

@Grumblevolcano I definitely agree on getting something on the new Kirby... But I think instead of Zelda ports, we'll see the announcement of Kirby's Anniversary Collection 2 (or w/e it's called), collecting the N64, GBA, and DS titles (plus poooosssibly Return to Dreamland, though that might be a standalone port later, and maybe Air Ride if we're lucky), and a port of the original anniversary collection. The new Kirby will only get a very small tease, with a full reveal in the Feb / March direct.

Side note: I'd assume Inti Creates would be developing, and a deal made with Capcom to use their emulators for GBA / DS... Either that or NERD getting involved.

Edit: also, why does everyone think it'll be WW/TP and not OoT/MM based on the 3DS versions?

@Slowdive another lackluster update for Animal Crossing New Horizons
a tease for the next mainline Kirby game in 2022 for the 30th anniversary
the reveal of the final Super Smash Bros Ultimate character
the final bit of information on Metroid Dread, Warioware Get it Together and Mario Party Superstar
the reveal or tease of the rumored 2.5D Donkey Kong game developed by Nintendo EPD tokyo
the reveal of the temporary exclusive Resident Evil for 2022
and a trailer for Zelda Breath of the Wild 2

Kirby definitely seems primed for a fall announcement, it typically releases in Spring and HAL's been teasing it for a while. I don't think we'll see any further announcements though, we might have to wait until Spring 2022 for announcements like the DK game. They like to focus on games coming out in the near future to help them sell, they're not going to announce more than 1 or 2 games coming in the further future. They don't want the announcement of a DK game to hurt sales for things like Metroid Dread, BDSP, or Legends Arceus. We probably won't see a lot of big new 1st party announcements until those games have come and gone.

I know Nintendo touched on Wave Race a couple of years ago and it sounded like they were exploring ideas. (There is a lot of gameplay to be had on different waves.) Not sure if it would go down well as a full price release in it's own right these days (depends on how much mileage they can get out of water physics I suppose) so my gut tells me it will feature in a Switch Sports type deal.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@Bolt_Strike i see, so expect the anouncement of the rumored 2.5D Donkey Kong game on the first Direct of 2022? or in E3 2022? along with the full reveal of the next mainline Kirby game?

@Bolt_Strike With predicting very few unannounced 1st party games I was also taking into account that if you take Smash away from the past 3 years of Directs, quite a few of them fall flat due to over-reliance on Smash. The first Direct of 2022 will be the first main Direct in 4 years without Smash so Nintendo will need to use other ways to excite people about Switch's future from that point onwards. Hence I think they'll let the final Smash character be the biggest announcement of the September 2021 Direct, my prediction did state Smash opening the Direct but I could see it being the Direct closer instead as a farewell to the game.

@MarioBrickLayer Stuff like DOOM Eternal Ancient Gods Part 2 shadow drop, something Xbox related that isn't to do with Bethesda, the Final Fantasy 1-6 pixel remasters, recap of already announced stuff (e.g. Super Monkey Ball, Life is Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy), more cloud versions, some new Switch revision exclusives, etc.

Just before 2022 starts. With some huge games already lined up, I'd bet Nintendo pile a few more in and do a repeat of 2017 in terms of released games.

Hope you're having a good day.

@chapu2006 reveal Super Mario Odyssey 2 or a brand new 3D Mario game and we gonna have a repeat of 2017 in 2022

Lets all be brutally honest. We DON'T actually know what Nintendo is doing behind the scenes. We COULD all be wrong in our assumptions about what Nintendo is cooking up. The switch is a very unique console, and Nintendo's plans for the future could be.

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

Speaking of, does anyone else think it's weird that Nintendo hasn't done some kind of "Switch Sports" title yet? Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort were huge obviously. And then Wii Sports Club on the Wii U was a bit of an afterthought even for Wii U. Then just nothing at all. Seems like such an easy win, I don't know why they haven't done it yet.
