As of today, 13th February 2020, it has been 162 days since we were last treated to a full Nintendo Direct presentation. As spotted by VGC, this is the longest fans have had to wait between shows since 2016.

The last full Direct we had came on 4th September 2019; the show featured a number of Nintendo Switch games and had a focus on Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokémon Sword and Shield. In 2016, there was a 182-day gap between the company's March and September Nintendo Directs, but we haven't had any similarly long waits between shows until now.

To be as clear as possible, by 'full' Nintendo Direct we mean presentations which have shown off multiple titles and were aired in multiple regions. Since September's Direct, we have had three Super Smash Bros. Ultimate-specific Directs, a Pokémon Direct, and an Indie World presentation, but fans have been expecting a 'full' show for some time.

Typically, Nintendo does host a Direct presentation in February/March to kickstart its announcements for the year (2019's actually came exactly a year ago today on 13th February). No such presentation has been announced just yet, but we're sure it'll come when it's ready.

How are you finding the wait? Struggling to cope? Happy to wait? Not really fussed either way? Let us know in the comments.
