That's a pretty regular list of sales, to be honest.
What would a Nintendo Direct have to do with that?
Again, the person is almost certainly lying about the Direct. There are almost always people lying about having inside information about Nintendo Directs starting about 4-6 weeks after the last Direct. Even when they get it right, the contents of the Directs are often mostly wrong, indicating that they just guessed luckily about the time, a broken clock is still right twice a day.
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
