Today Nintendo confirmed that a Nintendo Direct would be taking place tomorrow on 2/17. The Direct will be roughly 50 minutes long and will feature a variety of games including those releasing in the first half of 2021.
Tune in 2/17 at 2 p.m. PT for a #NintendoDirect livestream featuring roughly 50 minutes of information focused on available games like Super #SmashBrosUltimate and games coming to #NintendoSwitch in the first half of 2021.https://t.co/fbG3hEtD0Q pic.twitter.com/w8J6lbdIkQ— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) February 16, 2021
In addition to information on new games, the Direct will also contain new information for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Whether it will be a character reveal has yet to be confirmed, however Smash reveals are certainly no stranger to general Directs as seen through character reveals like Isabelle and Terry. Sakurai has also retweeted the Direct which may add fuel to the fire.
Nintendo Directs are showcases generally meant to show off what games will be coming out soon for Nintendo systems. Most likely a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we have not gotten a full general Direct since September 4th 2019 and instead have gotten a variety of Direct Minis over the past year. Needless to say, there is a lot to look forward to tomorrow evening.
The Direct will air on Wednesday, 2/17 @ 2pm P.T./5pm E.T. You can watch it here or on Nintendo's official YouTube channel.
