I have a good feeling we will get a direct this month. The promotion of this game has been.. ehh imo.

When y'all think we will get a direct on animal crossing?

I'm hoping before the 13th because that's when I go back to work

this is based on pretty much nothing, but I have a feeling one will be this week. we've had so many little drips of new info this past week, it just feels like it's building to something

I've been thinking we might get one before the 15th, as that's when corocoro will release their magazine with all that good info they've been holding from us..

I think we’ll get one on the 8th. I can feel it in my jellies.


Let it be known that if we do in fact get one on the 8th, my jellies are scarily accurate, and yay, animal crossing gameplay soon!!

I'm not going to get my hopes up - there seems to be a clear pattern of late where Nintendo is barely promoting titles that are for a wider audience than the typical "core" crowd (for example, North America doesn't look to be even getting Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training for Nintendo Switch, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons more-or-less hasn't been promoted at all), and a lot of the information that you would think would be reserved for a Direct has been dropped at random.

Aside from the tie-in hardware-reveal, which itself was just unceremoniously dumped on an official Twitter account, most information of late has come from fans gathering information from Japan-only leaflets and magazines, or from that one Nintendo Latin America press-event, or, as of today, from a billboard in Hong Kong.

A Nintendo Direct or a specific Animal Crossing Direct would be great, but going by what's happened so far I'm just going to take it as a blessing if there actually is one featuring much coverage of this game.

I doubt there will be a direct on the 8th, because the 8th is a saturday and there has never been a direct on a saturday (of course, trying to predict nintendo's movement based on previous patterns can be futile, but you know )

I went through the nintendo direct archive to figure out what days of the week directs have been on, and out of the 62 I counted...

1 was on a sunday
2 were on a monday
11 were on a tuesday
26 were on a wednesday
19 were on a thursday and
3 were on a friday

of those 6 that were on sunday/monday/friday...

1 was a pre E3 thing from 2012
3 were focused on third party games
1 was a micro direct and
1 was a regular direct from 2012

also I kinda agree with PennyGwin, but I'm a bit more hopeful. I doubt we'll get a dedicated AC direct, but I think we'll at least get a regular direct with AC as a focus at the end

If I'm remembering correctly I think something similar happened back in 2013 where we got the reveal of the Animal Crossing 3DS design, and then a few days later we got a Nintendo Direct / Animal Crossing Direct. Maybe we'll get the same this time? If so, that would make this week perfect for it!

I really hope we get one!

I really hope we get a direct. As you said, the advertisement for this game is really lacking. That being said, the direct for New Leaf was released 34 days before the game's release! That doesn't mean we'll get one for the switch but it does at least mean there's still a chance. I personally think we are getting one, it's just going to be super late. There's a magazine someone in this thread referenced already that claims to have exclusive information releasing on the 16th, so there's still planned information coming.

"There's a magazine someone in this thread referenced already that claims to have exclusive information releasing on the 16th, so there's still planned information coming."
I feel that it's crazy that we're still having to rely on fans unearthing information in Japan-only magazines this close to release.

"I doubt there will be a direct on the 8th, because the 8th is a saturday and there has never been a direct on a saturday"
Okay, I was wondering why Ysna887 and FlyingSponge were so confident in there being one on Saturday because when I saw that date my immediate reaction was "...when was the last time we got a Direct on a Saturday? Aren't they usually on Wednesday or Thursday?"

To double check, how much in advance double Nintendo normally announce a Direct?

Also, about the billboard, Nintendo Soup said "Nintendo Hong Kong has put up a new advertisement promoting Animal Crossing: New Horizons at Taipei’s Ximending district" which might be a bit confusing, but to clear things up the sign is in Taipei, Taiwan not Hong Kong. I think because they both use traditional Chinese that's why it's from Nintendo Hong Kong.

StarlitGlitch - Thanks for that! I didn't know that Nintendo Hong Kong covered Taiwan, so I just assumed that it was a mistake in the article and went with the branch that they named before they stated the location.

No problem! I didn't know that either tbh, but I was confused since it said "Taipei" and also there's a sign in the picture that says "Taiwan" in Chinese so I checked where that district was located. Don't worry, I was just as confused at first and wondered if it was a mistake.

I've been reading articles recently about the simplified and traditional Chinese names + trailer so it's been on my mind.

I could definitely see a general Direct this week, with a bit of a tease of info to get us hyped for the focused Direct that will be announced for next week during that info.

Well, assuming they're usually announced Tuesday for a Thursday and we haven't seen news yet, not this week.

I've also heard the rumor of two Directs this month - an AC and a general one. I've heard that it's possible the AC one will be on the 20th which is in the approximate release date ratio of it - 30 days prior, or some such? I honestly hope it's sooner, I can't take much more...

^they're also often announced just 24 hours before the direct, so I'd say we have until tomorrow before we can rule out this week

anybody know what time of day directs usually happen at? there are rumours floating around that there will be an AC direct on the 20th, but the 20th is the first day in four weeks that I've worked a mid day shift SO I'm kinda hoping those rumours are false even though everyone is saying it comes from a credible source

I'm not sure there's much of a pattern. The September Direct that got us our most recent significant batch of new information was in the 6-7 p.m. time block, but I am pretty sure I remember others being closer to the middle of the day

Also just realized I'm gonna be away on a trip from the 20th-25th, so if the Direct(s) happen those dates, I may miss them! I know it's not a huge deal and I can watch it later but I really enjoy being caught up on the news.

So I hope it's before then.
