Earlier today, Nintendo announced their first Nintendo Direct of 2021 will take place on Thursday, February 18, 9:00 a.m. AEDT.
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

According to Nintendo, the showcase will run a beefy 50 minutes and feature news on already available games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as well as new games coming to the Switch in the first half of 2021. I suspect there will be a release date for the Switch version of the critically acclaimed Umurangi Generation. And while it is a long shot, I’m getting my witches together to create a summoning circle for more news about Bayonetta 3.
Please, Mr. Nintendo, my crops are dying.
Though there have been many Nintendo Direct inis and Indie Showcases, this will be the first Nintendo Direct that wasn’t focused on a single game since September 2019. Nature is healing.
