What to Expect in Tomorrow's Nintendo Direct - 2.12.2019

The Direct drought is over! Did you know its been over 150 days since the last Nintendo Direct? 3DS isn’t involved this time, which means roughly 35 minutes purely about Nintendo Switch. Nintendo has been quiet on the first party front, so there's no better time to review what's coming to get an idea on what games can show up tomorrow.

Also, maybe I’ll keep track of my backlog here; there’s over a hundred games on my Switch and I’ve finished nearly none of them! Plus, a place to post all my podcasts would be nice. Did you know I have THREE?

Anyway, that’s all for now. A Direct should be upon us soon, which presents the perfect opportunity for my first “real” post! Until then, s…
