The Feb 2021 Nintendo Direct promises “roughly 50 minutes of information focussed on available games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and games coming to Nintendo Switch in the first half of 2021.”
Nintendo, as is its wont, announces a new Nintendo Direct whenever it feels like it. The massive publisher and platform holder doesn’t pay any heed to those complaints of “hundreds of days since the last Nintendo Direct” you see all over social media.
But then it does announce one. And it’s usually really soon. And it’s usually pretty big.
The latest is no exception: the Feb 2021 Nintendo Direct will take place tomorrow, February 17, 2021, at 10 pm GMT. (That’s 5 pm Eastern/2 pm Pacific for our friends in North America.)
It will also be 50 minutes long, which is sizeable. We don’t know exactly what will be in the Feb 2021 Nintendo Direct yet – other than yet more Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, yawn – but Nintendo promises “games coming to Nintendo Switch in the first half of 2021” which is rather more exciting.
And where can you watch the Feb 2021 Nintendo Direct? Well, you can watch it on YouTube, obviously, but if you do that, you’ll also be subject to the psychic damage dealt by the live comment stream. It’s far safer to watch it here, on Thumbsticks, embedded in this very post:
We’ll have a full round-up of all the announcements from the Feb 2021 Nintendo Direct shortly afterwards.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
