Nintendo has announced that the next Nintendo Direct is set for February 8, Wednesday. The Direct will be streamed for roughly 40 minutes. It will focus on Nintendo Switch games that will release in the first half of 2023. The event will start at 2 pm PST and can be streamed from the official Nintendo Youtube channel. This reaffirms a previous rumor by Jeff Grubb about the Direct taking place in February. Although a specific date for the event wasn’t confirmed back then.
What Could The Upcoming Nintendo Direct Show?
The Nintendo Switch games set for release in 2023 include Bayonetta Origins, Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe, Bayonetta Origins, Pikmin 4, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom. So, these are the games that will be mainly be shown in the Nintendo Direct. It might be that Nintendo also could tease a previously unannounced game in the Direct.
Pikmin 4 was announced at the previous Direct in September but there had been no solid information about that game. So, we’ll hopefully get more information on it. In addition to that, we can also expect a much broader focus on The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The game was delayed for a Spring 2023 release with the May 12 release date confirmed in the September Direct. We could also get details on Advance Wars 1+2: Re-boot Camp including a proper release date.
