Could the next Nintendo Direct happen as soon as in the next 20 days?

A user on r/NintendoSwitch mentioned that all Direct Minis had a full Nintendo Direct following within a max. of 20 days. For reference he included the dates of the earlier Direct Minis and full Directs:

So, next Nintendo Direct on 31st of January?


PS: I've seen it posted in the Mini Direct-thread so I thought it would be better to post in a new thread than to fill up the other thread with it.

What would a full Direct include? More 3DS titles and Switch system-level stuff (online, app, Virtual Console, etc.)? New Switch hardware?

I don't see why it would happen, but it'll be cool if it does.

Man I was so happy with all the little announcements in the mini and the pipeline for the next rfew months I’m fine waiting til spring or even E3. Between these titles and what’s available on eShop I’m up to my ears in great games but no time.

I guess they could go over the other stuff that wasn't shown in the Direct mini and we know is coming out in the first half such as Wolfenstein and Bayonetta. Overall there was a lack of western dev support in the mini besides Payday 2.

For a moment I thought this was going to be the dumbest thread yet with some crazy theory. Though looking at those dates, I didn't even realize mini directs and regular directs all happened so close to one another.

nahhhh don't see the point of doing a full direct so soon since we already seen all their release schedule for the first half of the year

Maybe we will get a "online service direct " next month detailing their new online service

In 20 days ? I don't know. But soon ? Yes. I mean, we're only the 11th, and some people think they already have announced all the games available until June...

11 minutes !

I suspect they used the mini to get all the ports out of the way so they can focus people’s attention on a couple of the original projects they’ve got coming up during the main Direct.

Maybe. But I don't think so. It felt like the one yesterday covered a range of first-party and third-party stuff; big games and smaller, rather than having a set focus. So I'm not sure what realistic purpose another Direct so soon would have. Bigger second-half 2018 titles will be announced at E3, and the online service has seemingly been kicked into the long grass.

We still don't know anything about Yoshi or Fire Emblem. Yoshi in particular is supposed to release early in the year.

People are going to be disappointed no matter what. We got TWEWY back and DK:TF off the wretched pile of flies and ashes known as the Wii U -- the Direct Mini was a smashing success.

So, choo choo

While i won't agree that there's another Direct soon to be shown, the Mini-Direct's video description on Youtube clearly said "Selected Titles", so no, we probably have not seen the full schedule for Q1 and Q2 2018.

I think this is important to read. From the direct mini thread:

Interestingly enough, you may notice that the Fire Emblem Direct is absent, even though it SHOULD be, as it would appear right after the Animal Crossing direct form 2016, chronologically. This correlates with the rumour that there will be more information about Fire Emblem coming really soon.


This guy has been posting things about FE Switch and correctly knew that there would be no info about the game in this Direct. Hmmm......
