Nintendo Directs have revolutionised how we are shown new video game information. Gone are the days of middle-aged men standing on a huge stage in a blazer-tee combo making awkward jokes to a crowd of journalists.

Instead, we are treated to a 20 or 30-minute blast of Nintendo updates, trailers, and gameplay. It’s truly a special event in the gaming calendar, taking over Twitter’s trending tab for a good few hours.

So there’s just one question on everyone’s mind. When’s the next Direct, Nintendo?

When is the next Nintendo Direct?

It has been ages since the last full-fat Nintendo Direct, but the iconic gaming company has now confirmed when its next Direct will be taking place.

As the press release explains, fans are “invited to tune in on 17th February at 23:00 CET/ 22:00 UK time for a Nintendo Direct livestream featuring roughly 50 minutes of information”.

What will Nintendo show at the next Direct?

Nintendo has said that this Direct will be “focused on available games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and games coming to Nintendo Switch in the first half of 2021.”

Fans have been holding out hope for some kind of Zelda-based celebration, since that game has a big anniversary around about now. So that’s our big guess!
