    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.

    I think Etika mentioned this in his recent video. I hope that’s the case.

    Maybe, maybe not.
    Let's just wait and see please. We don't need another 400 page thread. People will just end up disappointed.

    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.

    I think we should at least wait a week before opening a thread. Mini Direct wasn't even 24 hours ago...

    Yea as it was only a mini I do see a bigger one at the end of Jan begging of Feb.

    This would be incredible if true. As a standalone early year Direct, yesterday’s mini was shit. But as a supplement to a full megaton-laden Direct, yesterday’s mini would be a delectable appetizer.

    This. Hype is fun, but I'd rather not have another wave of irrational doom and gloom based on the insanely high expectations of people not being satisfied.

    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.

    There's a direct in the next 480 hours.

  22. Vampirolol

    Vampirolol Member

    And what would they even announce? We already know the releases until E3.

    I don't think so, but it would be a nice surprise. Though I hope we see one next month or March

    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.

    Werent most of the mini directs, title specific though. Have we had any general mini direct followed quickly by a full one?
  28. Ehoavash

    Ehoavash Member

    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

    History of mini directs and a new slot opening on that direct page point to yes.

    See you all in the next January Direct lmao

    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.

  37. AaronC

    AaronC Member

    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.

    On a related note, within 24 months of every Nintendo Direct, there was a Zelda release.

    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:

    Seems likely, at the very least to give exposure to upcoming Indie games. Inside in particular deserves its minute of fame.
