Very helpful! Thanks. It looks like September is most likely, though August isn't impossible.

You forgot the January 2018 Mini direct and Pokemon Conference 2018.

Of course, there were also the ARMS, Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem, Pokemon, Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, and Xenoblade 2 specific directs last year.

We still have 5 months to go for the rest of the year. We can potentially have a general direct and a Smash Bros for the rest of the year. Nintendo seems to have made a commitment to maintain a presence, in terms of messaging, throughout the year since last year.



I'd like another Fire Emblem direct this year. Show more of the new game, maybe release Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn on the eShop to make up for the delay.



Clamoring for another Direct eh?
