I was about to ask in that other thread if this was thread worthy. Let's have a nice speculation-filled discussion here for 2 months eh? :)

Hell yeah! We pretty much knew that something was coming in December or January but this just helps nail it down. Give me more sweet information on Switch games Ninty. You now own 90% of my gaming time.

I'm thinking this one is gonna be big. Even if Ninty themselves focus more immediately on things like Yoshi and Kirby, this would pretty much be the ideal opportunity for third parties to show what they got.

I'm ready~

Everyone is expecting one for January.

It will be big because it will feature OS level stuff and their online/vc/subscription system.
Games will be there as well obv.

This wasn't announced? I've seen people talking about a January Direct for a while now.
That's just speculation. As of now, Nintendo doesn't have many games announced for 2018, so they need a Direct for that. Having a Direct in January 2018 makes sense.

'Influencers' and 'sustain indie love' being on strategic documents makes me giggle a bit.

FE has lovely visuals, hope its gameplay is inventive!

I’m hopeful for the January direct. Should be an annual thing.

Hoping for Smash DX announcement, Yoshi and Kirby release dates, Animal Crossing or Pikmin and gameplay teaser of one: MP or Pokémon.

Along with a shit ton of third party announcements

I need Smash Nintendo. It's the only card I can pull out of my sleeve to interrupt a boring FIFA session with my friends.

I haven't been keeping track, but when was the last time a Direct was all-but-confirmed in this manner? One of the little things I like about them is Nintendo's seemingly last-minute "oh yeh, Nintendo Direct this week kthxbai" manner at which they announce them and offer a nice surprise for that week.
