Now that we pretty much know it's coming, what do you think will be shown?

I think Fire Emblem is a given, I'm guessing April release date revealed. I don't think Luigi's Mansion 3 will be shown at all, I think that's a fall release. I think Animal Crossing is possible, but not for sure.

As far as unnannounced goes, what reveal(s) do you think we'll get?

The 13th could mean the announcement of the Direct. Either way we get a Direct on the 13th or it's announced on the 13th to be on Valentines Day (14th). Both work out for me!

I don't think he'd be privy to when Nintendo plans to announce the event, just the date of the actual event. Based on his tease I expect the Direct to be on the 13th.

Which time zone though is a good question.
I mean, it's not that hard to guess the Direct announcement day. Regular Directs are announced the morning of the day before, game-specific Directs the morning two days before. (morning in PST)

That's a really good point. It could be 13th in Japan. It just seems weird to me that they would skip the opportunity to do it on Valentine's Day and on their regular Thursday.

So Nier Automata will be in the next Direct right?
And Tetris Effect
And Ace Combat 7

I’m glad I won’t have to decide whether to buy a ps4 anymore

13 in Japan, 14 in EU/US is very likely.

Depends on his source.

Or maybe 13th is day of the announcement.
Errr doesn't the time difference go the other way? 14th in Japan would be 13th in EU/US?

I mean I don't think he'd have inside knowledge about when the announcement is taking place, but rather when the event happens. He could guess when the announcement would be, sure, but I don't think he'd drop by and post a guess like that.

There are a bunch of announcements coming this year but am not sure when.
Including Pikmin 3, Maker 2, Boxboy, and of course the 2D Zelda and Pokemon.

MPT probably will be at the Direct.

I knew Pikmin 3 would come this year but no one believed me >:(

I'm really curious what they'll do to expand Mario Maker for a sequel. That might be my most hyped game on that list, just to see what they've done.

2D Zelda will be awesome of course too. And we all know what we're getting with MPT, I just want a date there.

So what happened to the rumored Star Fox racing game?

Still, Super Mario Maker 2 has me hyped.

Hmm. I guess Mario Maker is the online title and 2D Zelda the one we would be delighted to know. No word on Retro?

On one hand, super excited the GOAT Pikmin 3 gets another shot, and I'm looking forward to replaying it. But on the other hand, man, I would have loved Pikmin 4. Hopefully next year.
