But the AC direct in Feb didn't lead to a general one later, so the indie presentation this month similarly doesn't confirm a general one is coming next week.
I'd love to believe one is coming next week, but after months of constant disappointment, I can't bring myself to get my hopes up only to be crushed yet again.
And I actually would not be surprised if games like Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3, or BOTW2 don't come out til 2022 at this point, the first two feel like basically vaporware at this point and BOTW1 was supposed to be a 2015 game.
To be fair, it’s been three months into the year. Yes there was a mini direct in January 2018 and a general in February 2019. But maybe things changed or Animal Crossing became their focus after Pokemon and the huge holiday season. Unless you were expecting a direct sometime earlier after September....
I get you want a general direct, like everyone here, but I think it’s an over exaggeration saying that Nintendo has been completely silent about future content for the Switch, first party or otherwise. Hopefully they will feel ready to show more info on upcoming games and hopefully the virus won’t get in the way of their release dates as analyst have warned.
