The cancellation of E3 2020 has caused a void of uncertainty. It has left Nintendo fans wondering what is going to happen next.
It's a certainty that a series of Nintendo Direct broadcasts will be released to fill the void and keep us updated with the latest news.
The only question that remains is what will be in it. Which games will Nintendo feature? We've already had an Indie World stream with a lot of games.
Nintendo Direct for Breath of the Wild 2?
The next Nintendo release is rumoured to drop around 26 March and most expect Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 and Metroid Prime 4 are set to make an appearance.
OH HELL YEA: These classic franchises are the backbone of Nintendo
This news could not have come at a better time for Nintendo fans who have been waiting what feels like a lifetime for a Nintendo Direct which features more than one game.
And it doesn't get much better than updates and potentially new gameplay footage of some of Nintendo's most loved franchises.
Updates on this year's releases
It wouldn't be a Nintendo Direct without showcasing an upcoming release for Nintendo, and there hasn't been one since the previous Nintendo Direct on Animal Crossing: New Horizons in February.
There are many rumours circulating in the Nintendo world at the moment and some of them are almost too good to be true.
Alongside the rumours that new material will be shown about Metroid Prime 4 and Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, there are also rumours going around about a host of Nintendo titles.
New Mario game?
These include multiple new Mario titles including a sequel to the Gamecube classic Super Mario Sunshine.
LITTLE KNOWN GEM: This game deserves a sequel
If this turns out to be true and Nintendo are truly developing a Super Mario Sunshine 2 it would be a dream come true for fans who have been waiting for a sequel for over a decade.
Games that should make an appearance
There are a variety of fantastic franchises that really should make an appearance on an upcoming Nintendo Direct broadcast in a dream scenario but have little rumours about them so far.
It has been seven years since Nintendo have released a Pikmin title, and it has yet to see a Pikmin title make its way onto the Nintendo Switch.
PIKMIN 4: Will we see a new Pikmin title on the Switch in 2020?
Being able to play a Pikmin game on the Nintendo Switch would be an incredible experience with it's enhanced graphics and unique style of gameplay and would be a very welcome addition to the Switch.
Pikmin 4 was, of course, absent from E3 2019 despite a lot of expectations it should have been there so it doesn't seem so out of the ordinary that Pikmin 4 will make an appearance on a Nintendo Direct broadcast this year.
Another game that really should make an appearance is Bayonetta 3. There has been very little news about this series since as far back as 2017 and more updates on this slashing classic are sorely needed.
It has been confirmed that the game is making its way onto the Nintendo Switch but so far it's a mystery to when the game will actually drop, making it a potential surprise reveal in a Nintendo Direct this year.
