RUMOR - Nintendo Direct set for Feb. 13th, 2019

We're all hungry for the next Nintendo Direct. The stretch of time between the last Direct and now has actually been the longest-running stretch between Directs since they started! When on earth is Nintendo going to break this streak? Rumor has it that Feb. 13th, 2019 is the lucky day.

This info comes from King Zell over on Resetera. King Zell has an insane track record with leaking Nintendo details, and has been spot-on with his teases time and time again. It's very clear that he's in-the-know when it comes to Nintendo inside info, so this tease definitely comes with a bit of credibility.

As for what to expect from the Direct, King Zell says that Metroid Prime Trilogy is quite likely. On top of that, Zell goes on to speculate what other games might get a mention/reveal. According to Zell, Nintendo has titles like Pikmin 3, Super Mario Maker 2, BoxBoy, Pokemon, and a 2D Zelda to showcase. There's also some other Japanese third party titles to look forward to, Zell says that Japanese devs are stepping up their game.

Just to be clear, the only game King Zell feels sure enough to mention as part of the Direct is Metroid Prime Trilogy. The other titles he indeed believes to be in development, but has no idea when they'll be showcased.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!

Oh jeez, I just reread "According to Zell, Nintendo has titles like Pikmin 3, Super Mario Maker 2, BoxBoy, Pokemon, and a 2D Zelda to showcase. :

THESE WERE NOT LEAKED FOR THE DIRECT. They MIGHT be in the Direct but he only said they were 2019. The only game he was confident, to some degree, being in the Direct itself was Metroid Prime Trilogy. Those others may show up this time, or some other times this year.

So with this rumour now being right about the date of the Direct, maybe we will see these games today:

  • Pikmin 3
  • Super Mario Maker 2
  • BoxBoy
  • Pokemon
  • 2D Zelda
  • Metroid Prime Trilogy
  • According to the guy, the only lock is MPT. I'll happily buy another simple port but I hope they give it some HD lighting and clean up a few textures (most are fantastic but cleaning up some of Samus's FP textures like her hands and Cannon would be nice) for a change.
