"Make a realistic Direct"

Then people go on to make wish-list Directs that defy realism in every way.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

- very short mentioning of 3DS, then instantly turning to switch
- some Information including exact release Date for Yoshi and Fire Emblem
- some Information about Animal Crossing and Daemon X Machina
- one 1st party surprise announcement (one classic N series is coming back!), but its NOT an AAA game
- one other 1st party new game announcement OR one 1st party port (like WiiU-Port) announcement
- a few third party games mentions including one exclusive new 3rd party game announcement
- some indies
- some information about Smash DLC

 Fire Emblem Switch unveiled, TBD second half 2019

That game was already "unveiled" as far back as E3, and was supposed to launch in 2018. There's basically no way this is the case. 



Let's not forget that last year their direct around this time was not really as beefy as their direct was in March. I don't necessarily think it will be a mini-direct, however I do think a lot of games that will release in Summer or later will have their release dates revealed in a March direct. 

-A few minute spent on the 3DS, includes almost all of the semi-big games that are coming out soon like Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Etrian Odyssey Nexus, and Yokai-Watch 3

-A reminder of Travis Touchdown and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe launching on January 11th, with some gameplay showcased for both

-Yoshi's Crafted World gameplay and features talked about, release date revealed, either releasing in late March or early April

-Fire Emblem: Three Houses showcase, somewhat in-depth but not toooooooo long, may or may not get a release date, more so betting on it not getting a release date until a later direct. 

-Daemon X Machina showcase, iffy on whether or not it will get a release date

-Piranha Plant gameplay showcase, release date revealed. 

-A Wii U Port revealed, coming sometime in Q2 or VERY early Q3 

-Town shown off, not too much info but enough to give us a bigger grasp of what the game is about from a general perspective

-A surprise game, something like a 2D Zelda, Pikmin 4, or a new entry in the "Maker" series. 

-Some third parties, to be honest I don't really care to speculate on this end 

 

Stuff that won't be shown:

-Luigi's Mansion 3 

-Pokemon 2019

-Persona Joker Smash DLC

Stuff that i'm iffy on:

-Animal Crossing being shown, I've said before that I'm one of the few people who think a Summer release is entirely possible, but even then I'm not sure this will be shown, because they'll probably have a March direct, an E3 direct, and possibly even a direct just for the game. And if it releases in Q3-Q4, I think this is even less likely. 

-Persona Q2 announcement for the West, I think it's possible Nintendo will want to help localize it over here to push hype for the Smash DLC.

By unveiled I mean game play, story trailers, features shown, etc. Not a teaser.

It got a 2 minute trailer that showed gameplay, story, and features. It wasn't a teaser. The game's already been unveiled.

I don't know how I missed it but you're right! I stand corrected!

Lol xD Didn't mean it in a mean way! It's no problem. 

I almost thought you meant something else by unveiled too, like showing off things in-depth, but then I saw that you described the same thing of Luigi's Mansion 3 and I was confused. Hey, at least it means we get the game sooner!
