Pump the breaks, guys.

How many times have we heard about it before?
"X user is ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that there will be a Direct on this date!"
Then, that date comes, and nothing happens?
Plus, wasn't it not too long ago when Nintendo was telling 3rd party & indie devs to make and release their own trailers for their upcoming Switch games?
Furthermore, it was just last week that Takahashi said they were looking for "more effective ways of presenting games to see what the best method is?" Meaning that they were trying to get away from the Direct format for the time being? Wouldn't make much sense to say that, then suddenly come out 3 weeks later with; "Here's a Direct, guys!"

I know we're all desperate to hear and see something new from Nintendo down the pipeline. All I'm saying is don't get your hopes up. We've all been down this road before.

Yes, fake insiders come and go but these have been right in ways it's not about luck + Nate is just the best Nintendo insider from Resetera and basically works with Nintendo, knows about their first party stuff. 

The 3rd party thing again, this might be a more first party Direct focus since they haven't announced any the whole year beside Paper Mario. That statement happened like before the usual E3 time. Means they were probably saying to not hold on to their announcements cause Nintendo were unsure of when they would make a presentation again. It was uncertain time and they just let them know.. doesn't mean they won't do one like several weeks after.. it will be like 2 months after that at that point.

You got that Takahashi thing wrong, they said the Directs might not be a thing that last forever so they are looking in ways to announce stuff. Nintendo are literally the most affective format right now and i'm telling you, and from analysts opinion's as well, they aren't getting rid of this anytime soon. No wonder everyone has a Direct format now. I don't see them announcing their whole lineup for the rest of the year on Twitter.
