Animal Crossing: New Horizons May Have an Upcoming Nintendo Direct this Month

Animal Crossing fans from Japan and all over the world are suspecting that a Nintendo Direct for Animal Crossing: New Horizon could happen before January 21, 2020. This is because of one thing – Nintendo Dream.

For those who do not know, Nintendo Dream is a very popular hobby magazine in Japan. The magazine’s March 2020 issue is expected to be released this coming January 21, 2020. The magazine promised to feature a lot of new information and screenshots for the upcoming Animal Crossing game. It is one of the most widely anticipated games in the franchise due to it being playable on both handheld and TV.  

The magazine features the upcoming installment in the Animal Crossing franchise in its full glory. If the cover already gives us the adrenaline rush, I can’t imagine what kind of excitement the contents of the magazine will bring.

Pokemon Direct and Nintendo Direct Often Gets Featured Successively

Last week, a Pokemon Direct was aired and featured a lot of information about the latest installments in the franchise. Two new DLCs for Pokemon Sword and Shield were featured during the broadcast. A lot of new Pokemons and regional forms were also introduced to the audience.

If there’s one thing that we’ve learned from Nintendo Directs in the past, it is about Pokemon Directs being often clustered together with a full Nintendo Direct. To prove that, let’s take a look at the past broadcast dates of the Nintendo Directs:

Pokemon Direct – June 5, 2019 Nintendo Direct – June 11, 2019
Nintendo Direct – February 13, 2019 Pokemon Direct – February 27, 2019

As you can see, Pokemon and Nintendo Directs are often broadcasted one to two weeks apart from each other. If the pattern will remain, it’s indeed possible for us to get some news regarding Animal Crossing: New Horizons this January! After all, we’ve been getting Nintendo Directs in January for the past 5 years!

Animal Crossing Direct – When is the Air Date

Nintendo is known to take charge in releasing brand new information about their upcoming games. Therefore, since the Nintendo Dream magazine will be released on January 21, we can probably expect the Direct to happen before the 21st!

However, do take note that these are all just wild estimates and prediction. We haven’t had any official announcements yet. However, one thing is for sure. Animal Crossing: New Horizons will definitely be released this coming March 20, 2020! Be sure to get a copy so we can all play together! 🙂
