Not necessarily, it's just very common thanks to Pokémon Directs and Nintendo wanting to give something to look forward to for people who recently bought their systems.

 

Best leaked Nintendo Direct in a while imho, really makes you think about how long in advance they are made...



I love how they have such a fancy powerpoint slide with such eloquent wording for their strategy moving forward for a game. I'm just puzzled because I don't see any mention of day 1 DLC or microtransactions.

EA is still supporting the Switch? Unparalelled!

Tbh, the "reveal" of a January direct was pretty much a given, but it's nice to have a confirmation.

Well, EA is just publishing the game like they did for Unravel, so their greed didn't reach the devs (Hopefully), lol.
