According to the Twitter user Pablo Suarez, there is a new Nintendo Direct coming this February 2018, and he also revealed the reason behind why we got a Nintendo Direct Mini in the mid-January 2018.
The major, full-fledged Direct was planned for January however, due to the release of the 5.0 update and online feature additions the Direct was delayed to somewhere in February, between 12th to 15th and that is the reason we got a Direct Mini in January, he says.
He further adds that the two sources he got the news from are verified too. The Reddit users are not very keen on this idea of a major Direct, one can tell if they see the comments and nothing much is known about the source of the rumor as well. So all we can do is take this rumor lightly and wait for any kind of confirmation from a trusted source or an official announcement.
To be clear.
YES a big Nintendo Direct was planned for January,but because of the 5.0 update and online features,It was delayed to Mid-February,probably between 12-15.
Thats why we got a Mini-Direct on January.
