GameStop has added 14+ Nintendo Switch SKUs to their internal system

Another batch of Nintendo Switch SKUs have appeared in GameStop‘s internal database. All 18 of them do not have any names, and the they have placeholder dates. Usually, when GameStop does something like this, it means that Nintendo is about to announce a bunch of things. This may be our first sign that a Nintendo Direct is just around the corner. As for the SKUs, you can see a screenshot of them from a tweet relaying the news down below.

  1. Interesting, but don’t get TOO excited. Gamestop can and does add SKUs for games that aren’t official, and may or may not ever exist. You could preorder “Wii Zelda” about 2 years before they even officially announced Skyward Sword just because they knew it was coming eventually. Other titles can have 3 separate SKUs for different levels of Standard/Deluxe/Collector’s editions.

    12 SKUs does not necessarily mean 12 new games.

  2. The best time for a Direct is late September-early October.

    There’ll be a bunch of releases in September, like DQXI, Spyro, Link’s Awakening and Daemon X Machina. Early October would be the ideal time, since they could focus on announcing new things.

    1. We never had one in october seperate game direct (any time) but normal directs have never happen fall directs always land around september tho after all it gives nintendo enough time to show off new games and do a full recap of the fall to winter games in a short summary vid

  3. Meh. Probably nothing I’ll care about. At least, I HOPE it’s nothing I care about. I’ve been spending all of my money on Limited Run Games lately. Darn them. Can’t afford hardly anything else lately. Actually, I can never afford games even when I AM buying them. I’m just an idiot.

    1. Same. This is probably the first year in a while that I’ve just told myself to wait to buy a couple games (Astral Chain and Three Houses)

    September direct. I can feel it.
