Nintendo Direct January 2020? It’s looking likely

A lot of people were expecting Nintendo to announce the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at The Game Awards 2019 last week – but alas, nothing was revealed.

There is a lot of chatter about who the next fighter in the crossover fighting game could be, but so far Nintendo has stayed tight-lipped about the next addition to the roster.

The new character is due to arrive in the Fighters Pass 5 DLC, which is scheduled to launch by February 2020.

Typically, Smash Bros characters are teased a little bit ahead of time – maybe a few months, maybe a few weeks.

Either way, though, we should be expecting to see the new fighter get announced by the company sooner, rather than later.

The company is leaving it a little bit late to announce who the next brawler will be.

Last year, we saw Nintendo take to the stage to announce Joker – the Persona 5 protagonist – as a fighter that would be coming to the game.

The character was announced in December, and was available in-game in April… we have two months less to wait this time, and we still don't know who Fighter 5 will be.

Surely – surely – that means Nintendo must be planning a January Direct to announce who the next fighter will be, and announce more 2020 games, to boot.

It is worth noting, however, that in 2019 Nintendo skipped a January Direct in favour of a February one. Whilst we posit that Nintendo could, in theory, do a 'stealth drop' of the next Smash Bros character after a Direct in February, there are other games we expect updates on, too, and a January date just makes more sense for that.

It's been a while since we've had any Animal Crossing: New Horizons updates, for instance.

And although Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE: Encore got a new trailer this week, we're expecting to hear more about that ahead of its launch date in March.

Also, this writer is still patiently waiting for an update on Shin Megami Tensei V – whether that'll ever come or not.

So we're pencilling a January Direct into our calendars, simply because it makes a lot of sense to do so. We hope Nintendo isn't going to let us down.
