Nope, none, but I still hope Sega will have some common sense at one point.

Yeah, it would be nice. Hopefully they dont take the failure of the Yakuza Collection on WiiU as any indication of how it would do on Switch.

As far as we know, they actually do think so https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2018/07/switch_isnt_the_right_platform_for_yakuza_says_series_producer

I am so excited! 50 minutes long, wow! And it's at the time slot geared towards the west, so I expect it is going to be more appealing to Western gamers than Japanese, another win! I just am so excited!

Oh, well that sucks. Maybe on the Switch 2 when the console can handle the entire series.



50 minutes is quite a lot, even if Smash takes up half of it. There could potentially be new trailers for quite some stuff we're expecting; BotW2, MP4, Snap, Bayonetta. Though it does say "first half of 2021". Obviously there'll also be a sizzle reel of small stuff that takes up 10 minutes. I hope there's also a surprise at the end, even if it'll be something I wouldn't be buying, but just because it's fun.

It is the 35th anniversary of Zelda this year, so Im sure we get something from that series.

That is also a thing. I didn't even think about that yet, thanks.



I'm hyped, but I gotta say I'm expecting NOT to get any Zelda news this time. I think they will wait till later in the year and do a Zelda specific announcement similar to the Mario one last year.

I want more cloud games

Why? I mean if them company's ever shut down the servers how can you be compensated? or play the game that you paid full price for?. Id understand buying them if the was the promise you could download a digital copy onto a future more powerful switch. But buying them and having them kept in the cloud just doesn't seem like a wise investment to me. Id understand if Nintendo had their own cloud service and charged a fee to play a bunch of games on it like ms with game pass for android. But this way and the google stadia way of buying one full game at full price thats stuck in the cloud just doesnt sit with me..

And also am i the only one who wish Nintendo would release some Mario Kart 8 DLC instead of smash -_- .



A full direct. Here's hoping Smash doesn't take up much time.

I really hope we get some info on Zelda. I think they're gonna save the rumored Diamond and Pearl remakes for a Pokemon Direct. It's tough to predict Nintendo. So I can't even really try much. It would be nice to get some N64 games on Switch Online. I'm sure we'll get some third-party surprises too, maybe even some same day releases.

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

I don't remember the last time when a Direct was setting wrong expectations among people with working reading comprehension, so when it's stated that the focus will be on SSBU and games released during the first half of 2021, then that's what the lion share of the Direct will definitely be about.

Hi, my teacher says I am functionally illiterate. Should I expect this Nintendo Direct to talk in-depth about Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3, Breath of the Wild 2, the new Earthbound game, and the Switch Pro, and is it safe to assume that anything that doesn't show up at this Direct will never exist and that Nintendo ran over my dog?

If they don't announce GameCube games for the Wii U, I'm throwing my Switch in the ocean, and boycotting Nintendo forever.

Electronic devices are assembled with many chemicals and metals that are actively harmful to our oceans and wildlife. Please consider eating your Switch instead. Perhaps with some light barbecue sauce to minimize the metallic flavor.
