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.

The issue really is that they just haven't had a general direct in so long.

Imagine you're at a restaurant and you ordered a pizza.  You've been waiting for your pizza, for over hour, then the waiter comes out and gives everyone at the table water.

It's not like the water is actually making the situation any worse, but it would still somehow piss you off.

Actually things like drinks, appetizer, salad, bread, chips, etc... make the wait more bearable for the main course.  Sure the main course is what you really want, but that other stuff makes it easier to wait.

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.

Well, the guy who predicted AC direct to be aired tomorrow (that turned out to be true), also says that next big direct will happen in second week of March. That's one week before planned AC release.

The post has already been deleted, but here's a screencap:

To an extent, yes.  But at a certain point, you want your fucking main course, and anything that is brought to you which is not that is going to piss you off.



I really do not care about AC, so this is a bust for me. I knew this direct was inevitable, but I sure as shit did not think it would happen before a general direct showing us what else we can look forward to this year.

Sweet, I'm sure they'll show a lot of good new stuff here!



It's about time. We probably won't get a typical Nintendo Direct this month, but we'll likely get it next month.

Never played Animal Crossing (apart from like 15 minutes of the mobile game) so I might watch to see what it's about.



Signature goes here!

Yeah, I can see that too.  After an hour an a half of waiting, I'd be like "Enough bread! Where is my food?"  Not sure if we are at that point yet with Nintendo Directs, but we are getting close.  It has been a while since the last one.



I'll check it out. :)
