not wanting to pitch in much since the date might be false, but I do expect to show some gameplay footage of the next pokemon game, another mario and/or LoZ game plan. At the final piece of the video (and a lot can agree on), show the next fighter for the fighter pass DLC.
I wouldn't bet on Pokemon. Not unless it's a Pokemon centered Direct. As for LoZ, don't expect anything concrete on a new entry for at least another year. However, I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo had Grezzo upgrading OoT/MM3D to HD for a "Hero of Time HD Collection" for the Switch. Maybe WW and TP HD ported over.

Well a person "leaked" the schedule for the alleged Direct and it said part of it was an announcement of a Pokemon Direct coming next week. Don't know if that leak is legit, but I could see them putting a teaser and possibly a name of what the Gen 8 games would be with a "more info coming on Pokemon Day"

As for Grezzo releasing an HD version for the Switch, I would be so down, but I hope they would undo a few of the changes they made to Majora's Mask. I mean I can live with the Stone Mask now being in the Pirate fortress and some of the other minor stuff, but the Zora swimming was ruined and the Eyeballs on all the Bosses totally ruined the flow of those boss battles (I don't mind the phase two they gave to the Gyorg battle and the shake up to Twin Mold actually made it more interesting, but the eyeballs meant you had to keep changing forms to use your bow and it just made the battles worse because of it.

I like Will Smith and I like Shantae, but nobody can't ever replace Robin Willams.
Ain't that the truth. I've been a fan of Robin's for almost as long as I can remember (even when I was little I watched reruns of Mork and Mindy and he also played the Frog Prince in an old show I loved that did live action retellings of fairy tales)

As I got older i got into his Stand-up and man, what an amazing talent. Even now it's sometimes hard to listen to his old material. His is one death that i doubt i will ever "fully" get over.

Did they just announced this or was this announced a couple of hours ago? Either way, finally. Hopefully we will see some Joker gameplay footage, but I don't think we are going to see Brave or the next DLC character tomorrow though. I'm pretty sure the next Season Pass fighter will be revealed at E3.

Last direct was November, 3 months later on Feb.

Lets see what nintendo has in store for the presentation. I know that there will be something smash related in there since Nintendo always want to end things with a bang.

Next direct month prediction: Either may or June for the summer

Edit: FE Three Houses Will be part of the Main Piece for the presentation tomorrow. Not to jinx it, but I have a feeling that Brave might be pointing towards a FE representative. Either that or someone else. Who knows, but I will keep expectations low when it comes to Smash Ultimate's Fighter Pass DLC.

Hm. Whether or not the whole "Brave = Erdrick" conundrum is debunked, I'm still excited for Joker's trailer either way.

As for my day, I'm busy reflecting on vegan cuisine for an upcoming restaurant video in my general humanities. How are y'all doing this fine afternoon?

I think it might point more towards a FE Three Houses Rep since that game takes a chunk of the direct. I could be wrong, but who knows until tomorrow

Fire Emblem may not take a chunk of the Direct.

They said the same line with Mario Tennis Aces during the March Direct last year, and it only had 3-4 minutes while Splatoon had 5-6 or so.

It's really just something to cause interest.

We can only guess for what Nintendo might show for tomorrow, but I just have a gut feeling regarding on what I said about FE Three Houses

I really wanna see more Animal Crossing and Pokemon, but that's pretty obvious. I think a while back I heard murmurs of a Link's Awakening remake. I don't know how much they stand up, but that would be neato. I wouldn't mind a Mario Maker 2 as well, but I don't know how much I want it nowadays. Kinda 50/50 on buying that. I don't have Online yet, but maybe they'll finally make me with a big SNES library. Only time will tell.
I can't believe the one random rumor I heard like way back about Link's Awakening came true. Kinda called it, I guess?

Interesting Direct, not really sure how I feel about everything in it. I won't judge it completely yet, but it's odd that Fire Emblem is doubling down on the "waifu simulator" reputation they get by now becoming essentially a high school simulator as well.

Really torn about the Link's Awakening remake. On one hand I love that game to know end (was actually my first zelda game ever back on the GBC) but right now that art style is gonna have to grow on me (Odd they didn't just use the Link Between World assets/style)

Also, unless i'm wrong, This is the first time they've used the phrase "Challenger Pack 1" for Smash. They said Joker was part of Challenger Pack 1, so is this the new branding for the fighter pass or are they counting each individual character as part of their own "Challenger Pack" and Joker's is the first?
