It don't really matters at end, their strategy works, Switch keeped momentum and it will keep selling great, Switch games are also selling great, and Switch will definitely sell much better than XB1 in any case.

I definitely expecting at least one big regular direct probably in September like was last year, with around 2 specific ones also, but at E3 they said they have more announcements in coming weeks and months maybe we could have two regular Directs.

Yes, Switch is still selling great and the momentum is still there.
That kind of thinking shows that you are deliberately focusing on the short term and you are ignoring the fact that the most "popular" console still can't out do PS4, with the exception of Japan.

Instead of just focusing on the here and now, you should focus your attention on a little but very important detail: Switch's huge success last year hasn't made a dent on MS and Sony.
What does tell you?

Nintendo says a lot things.
Do you really expect Nintendo to come out and say that we have seen everything for 2018?
This E3 they changed their "games coming out soon (6 months)" to "6-9 months", which end in Spring. Expect, at most, 3 new games - with the strong possibility of more ports.

Yes and how many games were shown when adding in the two other directs this year and how many will be shown in the inevitable directs later this year?

E3 is like the only big reveal event for MS each year while Nintendo splits their reveals into a half dozen or so smaller events.

Let's assume that at the end of the year, Nintendo has showed 50 games during their presentations in 2018.
MS's message for the year was: 50 games; Nintendo's message was: games here and there with a focus on Smash.

Which one do you think will resonate more with gamers?
If you look at the sales numbers for last year, you'll see that Nintendo didn't steal customers from MS or Sony despite a huge success; this year, MS is having it's best year while Sony will have a decline (?). 
Again, it's almost as if Switch wasn't in the market.

"We have 50 games, too" could do a lot more to really damage MS and Sony, than their strategy will.

I don't think Nintendo has to necessarily steal anyone of the fanbases. Players can still play their PS4s and Xbones while getting Switch. It's unique enough that its not just another high powered box. It's a console you can play on the go seamlessly for $300. No need to get a PSTV or PS Vita just to get remote play from PS4 (which is a lot of money combined compared to just getting a Switch). Plus, Nintendo can build upon new audiences. Gaming is evolving and so why not the audience?
