I estimate this Nintendo Direct will run for no less than seven and a half hours.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

They're also going to update the system to version 5, which will include stuff like voice chat with friends, and extra apps like Youtube and Netflix.

They really should announce the inevitable Direct as soon as posssible. Still, most of the rumoured "leaks" seem to be too good to be true, a bit of caution is always needed for this things.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Thanks! Updated.

Yeah, no way in hell we're seeing all of that. Also, we're only 2 days away from the 11th and we still haven't even heard anything from Nintendo.

Are you two suggesting the Nintendo fanbase would actually lie to us? :(
I won't believe it until I see their deception with my own eyes!

I'd be surprised if 10% of the stuff listed happens.

Actually at this point, I'd be surprised if we get a Nintendo Direct at all.



I heard from an incredible Source that: Half-Life 3, Portal 3 and Left 4 Dead 3, will all be announced as Switch exclusives at the event.

This isn't a rumor. It was confirmed fake.
