I really doubt this rumor. I know it's likely, but with Nintendo you never know.

It would make more sense for them to wait a couple of extra weeks and do a Direct on March, aligning with the 2nd birthday of the Switch.

Why would that make more sense? When has Nintendo ever done a hardware anniversary direct?



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

As I have been saying since December, late March, around GDC and just before they kick off the new fiscal year.

I don't really see much point for a Direct in February, to be honest.

Well they cant really wait late March if they have some April/May releases, so mid February totally makes sense, especially because new fiscal year starts on 1. April and focus of Direct would be from Yoshi release, so from late March probably to around July.

Sure they can. March is before April and May. Having a Direct close to those months would be ideal.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Chances are this is true since it’s King Zell, who has correctly predicted MANY things and hasn’t been wrong so far.

Fire Emblem will be there, Animal Crossing will be there, Shin Megami Tensei V will probably Be there (especially since the producer said to wait a little longer for news in early Jan) and Bayonetta 3 will most likely be there.
Metroid Prime Trilogy would be most welcome.

I also expect some Wii U ports, GTA V, MAYBE HOPEFULLY Witcher 3, Spyro Trilogy Remakes and hopefully a trailer for Nintendo’s big holiday hitter that isn’t Pokemon, assumimg they have one.

The Witcher 3 would blow my mind. If they pull that off I will wonder if they met the Crossroads Demon.



Surely it has to come this week. I need dates for Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, Dragon Quest and Bayonetta. Some confirmation that Pikmin is coming is needed too. A Pokemon teaser as the one last thing would be amazing, but I wouldn't expect it.

Well, we'll find out soon enough.

Not going to spoil in case people don't watch the video, but a BIG meh. If the leaked games are true, I'm really disappointed.
Just waiting for the already announced games, those are at least new games.

what are the games?



I want snes games on switch. Don't care about much else for now.

Thats a seperate issue, and kind of mute atm anyway because games like skyrim and fifa have broke a million, and all 3rd party seem really happy. But games that would actually fit the Switch like GTAV (even 360 version) Witcher 3 and the sublime Hellblade, just aren't coming. The problem for me right now is the lacklustre OS, terrible outdated online from not being able to message friends to rubbish free games to no netflix.  I mean its been 2 years since BotW, why no sequel using Botw assets and engine? Ubisoft can bang out a new massive AC every year or two. Im a long term Nintendo fan but im beginning to falter.

The dock was a wasted opportunity it should at least have upped the power of the console or made it run quicker, even plugging a laptop in does that and i agree they feel out of sync now. They should just make a console on par with with Xbox and PS then scale back their own games to suit their needs if they don't want to make 4k games etc but at-least it would be possible to port to.

What you're asking for sounds impractical if not impossible. There are at least 2 teams working on assassin's Creed at any given moment and even then they've still started taking gap years. You're not getting a new Zelda or any open world game every 2 years. Also upgrading the dock but not the handheld itself makes no sense. Throwing a ton of tech at the dock before an upgrade for the console itself just makes things harder for the devs. And finally it's called the switch for a reason, making PS4 and xb1 level games that won't run in handheld mode would be dumb. Just because you want a bog standard home console doesn't mean Nintendo should screw over their handheld fans 

Wait so your saying its possible for Ubisoft to bang out multiple AC And release other games like farcry inbetween but nintendo cant? Why cant nintendo have two teams working on zelda at any time? I refuse to believe Nintendo is a small company than Ubisoft. Nintendo devolopment teams are just slow and outdated. Not used to working on HD LOL, xbox and sony devolopers are learning 4k loads of graphical effects and VR. Lets face it guys nintendo are stuck in 2006.

You said late March, gaving release dates less than 2 months before launch for Nintendo new games is not realistic to expect, they need to start talk about their Spring-Summer games soon in any case.
