Nintendo Direct presentation on Feb. 17 – Start time and details

Nintendo revealed Tuesday early morning that it’ll hold a 50-minute Nintendo Direct discussion on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET. In 2015, Nintendo chose much shorter, more concentrated Nintendo Direct discussions — great deals of Mini Directs. It’s the longest Nintendo Direct discussion we’ve seen in rather a long time.

On Twitter, Nintendo stated it will share news on “available games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate,” in addition to upcoming video games to be launched in the “first half of 2021.”

Say goodbye to information on the Nintendo Direct were provided by Nintendo. Nevertheless, there are a couple of video games we understood are pertaining to Nintendo Change, like Beast Hunter Increase in March and Pokémon Snap in April. Nintendo has plenty of other anticipated titles in development, like Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 — but there’s no release date information for any of those titles.

Nintendo has also been facing rumors of a so-called Change Pro, a more powerful version of the portable video game console, for a while now, and fans would certainly be eager to see news on that front during the Nintendo Direct. Nintendo, however, has continuously denied ongoing rumors.

In December 2020, Nintendo of America CEO Doug Bowser told Polygon that Nintendo is “always looking at technology,” however that Nintendo would continue to focus its efforts on the “momentum” of the Nintendo Change and Nintendo Change Lite.
