Nintendo direct may not yet be over for the year 2020 and they may be planning something big in December. Nintendo as it usually does through the year released several different directs. Ranging from product to partner showcases. However, it was unclear if their most recent one was going to be the last Nintendo direct of the year. That being said, some phrasing at the end of that event suggests otherwise. Specifically, they stated that this event was the last direct partner showcase for 2020. this implies at least two noted Nintendo fans that there could be another direct before the end of the year. this is further supported by the fact that in previous years Nintendo has done a direct December. Of course, that does beg the question, what will this possible December direct be about?
The answer that question is tricky, at least at the first glance. Though right off the bat a partner showcase is immediately ruled out. Given the fact that they stated there would be no more of those this year. However, that does leave several options that Nintendo could choose from for a December direct. There are however several candidates for December direct that stand out above the rest. One possibility is an intimate direct about the rumored Nintendo switch Pro. This is a real possibility given the rumored release for such a device being 2021. If the release was early enough in a year than a December direct would make sense for a reveal.
Another possibility is yet another Nintendo direct on Pokémon. While there’s enough popularity for that it would also be one of several printed 2020. Of course, if there’s another major release or rerelease of the franchise then a direct make sense. That being said, many fans believe the most likely choice is something to do with Legend of Zelda: breath of the wild. This is especially true considering that the franchises 35-year anniversary is coming up. Additionally, it would be the ideal time to release more information on the long-expected breath of the wild 2. Hopefully, an answer to this burning question will be made available in the near future.
