Our largest voting choice has fallen and we’re on our way quickly through the next. Should we all just start assuming the next Direct will take place in March? Seems everyone is piqued like a tightly wound piano string just waiting for some new gaming news. Remember the good ‘old days when we all just had to wait until a convention to get our news fix? Those were the days.

If not in a week this will be the longest period with no general direct (176 days).   The last general direct was 4 september?






I am hoping we get a Direct by the end of the month. Showcase more of Animal Crossing and announce the games they plan to release in the second half of 2020. Right now it is looking rather empty.

They could be waiting a bit more to see if the decline of the virus gets confirmed. From that they can evaluate accurately the damage on their supply for the next 4 months and take the decision to push Animal Crossing for a release on June to not screw up its launch because of the shortages of next April.



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TI MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

I hate the waiting but i have so many games that i haven't even bought yet so i'm not too mad.
But still, it would be weird if they don't have a game for April/May/June and i don't think they would wait for like april to announce it. Maybe they will wait for March but still that's a bit late imo.

I think there might be some pretty good reasons to why they are pushing it back this year, wether they are waiting on Retro to have a little teaser for Metroid or another big game like Bayonetta 3, Botw 2, etc.

Well, I hope Nintendo isn't holding out for Bayonetta or Metroid. While people on this forum like to pretend they're big, it's not really true.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

That is true. I hadn't thought about the affect of the coronavirus. I am personally hoping for a 3D Mario game as the big 2020 game over BotW 2.

Animal Crossing Direct announced for 2-20, but that doesn't count as our official Nintendo Direct for this thread. What it certainly does, though, is knock this week out of contention, and very easily next week as well. If you haven't picked your poll option yet you can brag about being right with far fewer choices to choose from. ;)

I wouldn't say no to a Direct on my birthday...March 2.

Neither would I, and it's not even my birthday.  Haha.  Happy early birthday in case we all forget.

Thank you. I'll be the young age of 32.
