General Nintendo Direct reportedly scheduled for next week, Nindies for “mid-March”

One more direct would be about Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Two Nintendo Direct live streams are reportedly airing this month, as we’ve reported earlier this week, one could be coming sooner than anticipated.

According to well-known insider Sabi, the First Direct would be a “general” one and ready to air as early as “next week.”

“General” means that this Direct would not be focused on a particular Nintendo franchise but on all the incoming or yet to be announced Switch 2020 games.

“I haven’t gotten a date specifically, but next week seems the most likely,” Sabi said, confirming a rumor spread by reliable Nintendo insider Zippo on ResetEra.

The second is to be dedicated entirely to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is releasing on March 20, 2020, together with a limited edition console, and has yet to share news and in-depth gameplay look ahead of its launch.

On top of that, Nintendo would be working on a Nindies presentation, which would be focusing on indie games coming to Switch later in the year.

The Nindies presentation would be slated for mid-March, reportedly close to the GDC, but would not be related to previous rumors involving Nintendo Direct, as those would be separate presentations.

The general Nintendo Direct allegedly coming next week would likely reveal new Switch games, as the 2020 lineup is still sparse.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is expected to be shared, with retailers pointing to May 29, but we’ve also heard rumors of new Paper Mario and 2D Metroid games currently in development.
