Thinking about it have they ever had a direct that wasn't about games? I can't recall, so I think the online info will come in the form of a press release/twitter post. Let's face it, it wont be anything exciting enough to warrant a direct.

 

Are you saying you still believe this fake leak has a chance of being real? Also you mean this Thursday I assume, cause next Thursday is the 17th which I wouldn't consider early May.

 

I'm just saying there is the possibility they could stealth drop the online direct.

Well alright, we'll wait a bit longer until you have to put FAKE in the thread title.

It doesnt need to We had Amiibos, Amiibo Cards, VC...in directs, saying that, it doesnt need to be regular Direct, they can just release video. It relly depends what kind of inforamations they will give us, if they talk about VC also and show few VC games we could definatly have Direct.

Pretty certain the directs they appeared in were about games. To the bolded, it doesn't depend, Nintendo said information about the online service. I guess games can be shown still, but there wouldn't be anything new to see. At most they could do a quick reel of the current online games and the NES/SNES games (not to be confused with VC) with added online play. So sure I do think it could be a short video, but if so it wont be labelled or presented like a direct.

Like I wrote, it doesn't need to be regular Direct, at this point anything is possible.

An irregular direct would still be a direct, and you also said a direct is definitely possible. I just explained how we wont see a direct in any shape or form as those are always about games, not services or otherwise.



Well, here we are today, and I've still not heard anything from Nintendo about this.



Btw if yal haven't already you should check out the comments in the gamefaqs thread. Tis a very interesting read!



I think at this point it's very likely this rumor was false. But hey, there's still a few hours to go and I could be wrong.
