Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Animal Crossing Direct announced for February 20

Tbh I'm disappointed it isn't a real Nintendo direct. I know many people are hyped and happy for this Animal Crossing direct, but me personally I don't care about animal crossing. As a Nintendo fan we essentially know nothing about the Switch's lineup for 2020. My fear is that Nintendo will wait until after Animal Crossing releases to do a Nintendo direct since Nintendo might be afraid that unveiling big games before Animal crossing releases might kill the hype of Animal Crossing.

Nothing could kill the hype for Animal Crossing, I assure you.  Nintendo could unveil a new Metroid, 2D Metroid, Zelda, and 3D Mario in a Direct right before AC:NH and people would still line up in droves in excitement for this title.  It has been quite a long time since we've had a console Animal Crossing, and even City Folk underwhelmed many.  This title is a long time coming.

It is also quite possible that they are saving some big announcements for E3. At least, that's what I think. But we'll see.

That's true, but Nintendo usually likes to tease what their big Holiday titles are before E3, they did it with Mario Odyssey, Smash, Pokemon and even more. So I still do expect a direct before E3 to announce their big games for the 2nd half of the year



The guy who predicted general direct was happening first what happen>

You'd be surprised, their are a lot of die-hard Animal Crossing fans who are gonna buy the Switch and game in droves even if Nintendo announces everything. But there are still a lot of people and Nintendo fans who are on the fence with buying this game and the only reason they might buy it is because they believe no major game might be coming from Nintendo anytime soon and have money to burn. I'm sure if Nintendo were to announce any big games before AC, the more casual gamers might be deterred to purchase Animal Crossing when they know they could save their money on the bigger titles coming later this year.

I'm sure AC is gonna sell like hot cakes and millions of Switch's & games whether Nintendo does a direct before its release or not, but I believe Nintendo might want to capitalize AC's sales as much as possible.

It feels like the entire gaming community is waiting. Waiting for what the Switch will have for the big releases and waiting for news on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. 

Yeah, all the big three are holding their cards close to the chest.It feels unbearable.We should have got a PS metting or a XBOX celebration or whatever by now too.

Very close to the chest. Microsoft less so compared to Sony. With PS5 all we have is a logo, while Xbox Series X we know what it looks like.

Now we hope for the general direct to come soon.



The Direct we were expecting, but not the Direct we were hoping.

Whereas I am excited to see what they say, potential dlc will be worth watching for. But it doesn’t give me that same level of excitement in my stomach that a new direct does..

I guarantee that won't be a scenario!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

People complaining about this confuse me.

1) I had to suck it up and get over all those directs that took time dedicated to new characters coming to Smash (boring). You can deal with a direct over a new game.

2) If they do a different direct that leaves more time for other games in the general direct. They aren't going to have a one hour direct, so I'd they crammed AC into a general one they would have to shorten other games showing time. Split them up and everyone gets more of what they want.
