    "tbc", so it's really just speculation on their part.

    Unprecedented.

    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? :)

    I think the TBC refers to the actual day in January

    Time to hope for Animal Crossing Switch.

    Probably on their 2018 line up, the paid online service and the Metroid Prime 4 demo.

    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.

    There were rumors but no confirmation

    So Nintendo might be continuing the idea of revealing more of their lineup in January again.
    Can't wait to see what they have as well as the announced stuff as well.

    It was just expected because they often lay out their lineup for the year in January or February.

    Just assumed. They've done it before and there's a lot of unknowns regarding 2018 still.

    It still hasn't been announced, hence the 'whoops'. The speculation was so rampant because it was always very, very likely to happen.

    Because we've had one a few times now as it's the perfect time to show people some of the 2018 lineup while still keeping stuff for E3.
     
  28. #28
    Expected.

    Not expecting much from EA though.

    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
     
  33. #33
    Pikmin 4 and smash Switch has got to be ready to go at this point.

    We all expected a January Direct, but it’s nice to see one game confirmed. FE looks impressive.

    How do we know this isn't fabricated? Any new assets here? I don't follow these games so I wouldn't know.

    There usually is one, and it's typically one of the bigger non-E3 Directs of the year.

    Excellent. Hoping for some info on Nintendo's paid online service. Also maybe a surprise Mother 3 confirmation but that's less likely.

    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.

    Reggie said they would talk about their 2018 plans after the holidays, so everyone just assumed a January Direct.

    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.

    The best thing EA has done all year. All is forgiven.

    Has hell frozen over or something? Who'd have ever thought that EA would leak a Nintendo Direct?
