    We could still get news. Mario and Xenoblade were holiday games and were both revealed in January.

    I bet next Direct is in March.

    It's hella overrated but still very good.

    I predict we'll see another Direct by the end of the month... but that it will be another Fire Emblem Direct. Announcing:
    - A one-year anniversary event for Fire Emblem Heroes, including another free 5-Star unit (like what they did with the Choose Your Legends voting event) and several new characters/maps/etc.
    - Fire Emblem Warriors gets brief updates on the DLC, including showing off the next DLC pack with new Shadow Dragon content. I feel like there's a veeeery small chance that they also announce some extra non-DLC characters coming in a free update, like how Hyrule Warriors added the villain characters in a free update post-launch.
    - Fire Emblem Switch formal reveal, showing off all kinds of new mechanics, characters, art, etc. The game gets a general summer release window, as well as the confirmation of a special edition and several amiibo.

    If this ends up true it sucks I’m not a FE fan. Oh well. I’ll have DK and possibly Hyrule Warriors and Dark Souls to play. I decided that I don’t want another huge game so Skyrim’s out for me.

    Nintendo is revealing something new today, a new way to play, I wonder if this may involve the IR camera.

    Also, I recently bought Resident Evil Revelations for Switch, I have the first one for WiiU as well, and was wondering if multiplayer works with both versions, or is it restricted to the same platform?

    In a strange way, it's the most Nintendo that Nintendo has ever done. And I give them respect for going farther than they have ever been on accessories.

    It lies into that "It's so stupid it actually makes a lot of sense". And that it also somewhat brings VR to Nintendo Switch when you consider one of those games featured..

    Labo looks legiiiiiiiiiiiit. This is ingenious.

    Now I wait patiently for what I still think will be a full Direct in February

    Who’s actually buying this here? I’m curious to try it but not buy it.

    If I bought it it’s actually hard to decide which one to get. The variety pack has different things in it and the robot is, of course, a robot lol. I’m sure parents will have to deal with that very same conundrum.

    I may buy the variety pack. It seems like a fun thing to with my daughter on a rainy Sunday. I think if you look at this product as more of a "craft" project than a substantial video game it will help understand the appeal. If I didn't have kids, I wouldn't buy it though.

    To note in the Q3, Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3 are both TBA, but that Pokemon seems to be a 2018 or beyond title.
