Well folks, July is wrapping up and it's been some time since Nintendo's E3 Direct.

What do you think? Is it time to get out our prognostication helmets (or whatever device you might be using this go around) and predict the next time we'll see Nintendo unveil some new goodies?

And of course, feel free to rattle off a few predictions, be they safe or comepletely insane.



Around the Network

We may get a short, mini-Direct for Astral Chain or Daemon X Machina in mid-late August.

As for the next general, regular Direct?
Early September:
- We'll get new trailers for Link's Awakening, Luigi's Mansion 3, Dragon Quest XI S, and Pokemon Sword/Shield, maybe even Animal Crossing: New Horizons. A close look at Nintendo Switch Lite. Plus a new trailer for Banjo & Kazooie, (Dragon Quest Hero should be out by then.) And the typical, 'one last thing' will be a new 3D Mario game, slated for 2020.

PlayStation 4/Xbox One/Nintendo Switch: 2019 vs. 2020
(https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread/241660/ps4xbons-2019-vs-2020/1/)

I’ll say first week of September, just because I’m in corporate meetings all week long and won’t be able to watch it live. So since Luck is a skill I never upgraded, this is when it will happen...



I'll say late August, because then they will have another one right before LM3 launches. As for predictions, here you go:
Safest: Their stocks will change.
Safer than safe: New features of Luigi's Mansion 3 shown that we haven't seen before.
Safe: Animal Crossing update
Mayyyybe: They address the joycon drift. Also another Wii U port (wonderful 101, for example).
Unlikely: Advanced Wars Switch is now in development now that Fire Emblem is out.
Not gonna happen: A RPG open world adventure starring every major 1st party Nintendo character. Like Kingdom Hearts-Nintendo edition.

Probably Gamescom or the old Spaceworld date.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I don't care. I just want Metroid Prime 4.

They sort of do, except it is just a Direct. Similar to E3, but without guest interaction. Gamescom also happens close to the old Spaceworld date, and it is the biggest event currently for the gamers and the press to preview and sample upcoming games (actually multiple times bigger than E3).

Oh, ok.



Probably gonna wait until after Obon Week, so late August or early September (I actually expect 2 during that period, a normal Direct and a Nindies Showcase).
