When You Can Catch Thursday’s Nintendo Direct In Australian Timezones

Set your alarms, gang, it’s Direct Time again. Nintendo has announced timings for its now-traditional February Direct broadcast, after rumblings about a drop began last week. As we do each and every time Nintendo announces a Direct, we’ve collated all the start times across Australian and New Zealand timezones so you know when to tune in.

Yep, it’s a long one. According to Nintendo, the Direct will clock in at 40 minutes, making this a “full size” Direct. Nintendo says it will focus on games launching in the first half of 2023, so strap in: the Tears of the Kingdom marketing machine is about to begin. But what else could be on the docket? Rumours surfaced only last week that first-party Nintendo launches on the Switch might be a bit thin for the rest of the year. If that’s true, we could expect to see a clearing of the backlog here. Pikmin 3 would seem like an obvious shout. Advance Wars: Reboot Camp, completed and put on hold after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, could be ripe for a shadowdrop.

Metroid Prime 4? I’ll believe that one when I see it. Let me know your hopes and dreams in the comments down below.
