Ehhh... Smash can only hold me for so long. Lol I need Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem Three Houses
I don't get this kind of sentiment. If you have other consoles/PC, you can play on those in the meantime if nothing Nintendo published this quarter is for you. If you don't have other alternatives or don't want to play on those, there are really a ton of games coming out every week on the Switch (and not just "pixel art" games, though many of those aren't bad either).

So we get Pizza before valentines? Or is that just the day of the order and it comes the day after?

Not like I would really want that after paying a of them on PS4 the last few months.

If Retro has only done two failed projects in the 5 years since Tropical Freeze, Nintendo would have shut them down by now, not give them the keys to a marquee project. Maybe Star Fox was the first canned project, but I highly doubt Retro has cancelled two large projects at this point.
Yep, exactly this.

And I agree, even if the Star Fox thing was canned and rumours/dates are mistaken/mixed up, then surely a third entry in the successful DK Returns series would have been given a green light.

I'd love it if Retro came out all guns blazing at E3 "what do you mean what have we been doing for 5 years? Here's a new DK because we love a trilogy, oh and we heard Star Fox needed a good game. Here you go!"

As many have said though... do they have the capacity? Did they really just put a small team on Tropical Freeze Funky Kong mode, or did that team also move onto a new DK Returns title?

If we do get a direct on the 13th I hope it's a good one, we're all so info starved atm I dread to think what the reaction here would be if it ends up being a mini or something.

If it's a mini and there's no announcement on Tuesday the 12th I genuinely fear for what this thread will say and do to King Zell.

13 is your lucky number..... and am out
Serious question: why doesn't anybody consider Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday as a potential Direct day? Thursday being Direct Day was specifically a 2018 thing. In 2017, Directs were on Wednesday. The way I see it, the Direct could be any day or the week except Friday and weekends.
The name's Nostradamus. James Nostradamus.

I hope that people don't do that, I kinda feel like Zell's talking about an announcement on the 13th...
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.
