A new year always brings new “When’s the next direct” posts. This morning, Nintendo of America gave us the announcement we were hoping for. The presentation will be purely Pokémon focused. It will last for 20 minutes, making it the longest Pokémon direct to date. Due to how recently Pokémon Sword & Shield released, many aren’t expecting this to be a mainline title. The expectations have instead been placed towards more information on Pokemon Sleep, DLC for Sword & Shield, and a plethora of spinoff guesses. Nevertheless, we’ll see what the future of Pokémon has in store for us this Thursday.
Author’s Note: Are you excited for this Thursday? What do you think it’ll be? I’m thinking a new spin-off, maybe some Pokemon Sleep info, and possibly even Fighter #5. Let us know in the comments below!
