The second half of 2020 was unusually quiet for Nintendo. Its big holiday release was the era of Super Mario 3D All-Stars, a collection of three updated games, and Hyrule Warriors, a spin-off of Zelda. Will the next 6 months be different? I’ll take a look on Wednesday.
That’s when Nintendo will host the next Nintendo Direct. In this presentation, the Japanese gaming giants will present games that will be played on the Switch “in the first half of 2021”.
According to Nintendo, you can see the news of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as well as a good introduction to New Pokemon Snap, which is scheduled to be released on April 30th. However, this is a 50-minute presentation longer than last July’s Nintendo Direct Mini, so at least one juicy opening is expected.
Nintendo Direct Start time?
Nintendo Direct starts at 14:00. Wednesday, February 17 EST at 5:00 PM PT. If you are in the UK you will have to wait until 22:00. GMT Wednesday. For Australians, Nintendo Direct will take place on Thursday, February 18th at 9:00 am AEST.
