If this is the last direct
This might be the last Direct we get pre-Switch 2 announcement, but I can't imagine it'll be close to the last Direct we get about Switch content at all. Even EoL 3DS still made its way into Nintendo Directs after the Switch was revealed. There's still probably at least 3 more that we'll get that'll focus on Switch games, as they transition to announcing and releasing new hardware.

Some of you need to learn how to read. What part of "There will be no mention of the Nintendo Switch successor during this presentation." is difficult to understand?
If those Nintendo fanboys could read they'd be very upset with you.
