Last year’s Direct focused largely on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate , but we’re hoping to see Nintendo cover a lot more ground for 2019. We’re told that we shouldn’t expect a new version of the Switch console , but it could be a good show nevertheless given its large roster of in-development games. Animal Crossing is expected to play a major role in its showing, as are Pokémon Sword and Shield , and other titles slated to release in 2019. This includes Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 , Fire Emblem: Three Houses , and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake .
