Its main focuses will be ARMS and Splatoon 2, but since it says it will include information about the Nintendo 3DS as well as the Nintendo Switch, it’s safe to guess those two games won’t be the only things shown.
So let’s make a few predictions!
Predictions I think have a fairly good chance of coming true:
Yooka-Laylee Switch Release Date
Yooka-Laylee came out yesterday for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but the Switch version’s release date is still unknown. A Nintendo Direct so soon after the game’s launch sounds like the perfect time to announce when this 3D platformer will be available on the Switch.
Pikmin 3DS game
Remember the side-scrolling Pikmin spin-off they announced for the 3DS and then said nothing more about? It’s supposedly still due out this year, so maybe this is the 3DS news on its way.
Predictions I think could come true, but probably won’t.
Virtual Console details
Nintendo hasn’t said much about how the Virtual Console will work on the Switch, but maybe they’ll give details today. It would certainly count as “information.”
Ever Oasis news
Ever Oasis looked very cute and interesting when it was announced at E3, but we’ve barely heard anything since then. How about a new Ever Oasis trailer?
Predictions I’d love to come true, but I won’t hold my breath for.
Bayonetta 1 & 2 for the Switch
Yesterday, Bayonetta was announced for the PC, but many fans are hoping to see the first and second game brought to the Nintendo Switch. If it happens, it’s probably the sort of announcement they’d save for E3, but who knows?
Mother 3 localization
I’m still convinced this will happen eventually, and since they sprung EarthBound Beginnings on people during a tournament, why not casually drop the third game during a Nintendo Direct like this? Best of all, bring it with the Virtual Console news I mentioned above.
The Great Ace Attorney
We’ve waited patiently in the hopes that Dai Gyakuten Saiban, or The Great Ace Attorney, will be localized. There will be a live stream about the sequel next week. This week there’s a Nintendo Direct with unspecified 3DS news. COINCIDENCE?
But we still can dream!
What are your predictions, likely or not, for today’s Nintendo Direct?
