Nintendo Direct February 2021 UK Time: When Is It, What To Expect, How To Watch

Nintendo has finally revealed that its next Nintendo Direct will drop tomorrow, February 17.

it's been a while since we've seen one, and there's plenty to be excited for – especially considering that this week marks Zelda's 35th anniversary.

Here's how to watch, what to expect, and, of course, when it is.

When Is It?

The event kicks off at 2 PM PT or 5 PM ET (that's 10 PM for the UK).

How To Watch

You will be able to watch this month's Nintendo Direct over at the official Nintendo YouTube channel here.

You can also check out the Nintendo Direct website here.

What To Expect

Where to begin? With it being The Legend of Zelda franchise's 35th anniversary, there's every chance we'll get to hear something about Breath of the Wild 2.

If that's not enough, rumours have continued to suggest we'll get some kind of Zelda remaster.

Nintendo itself confirmed that there will be around 50 minutes of information, with a focus on already available games (specifically Super Smash Bros Ultimate) and games coming in the first half of 2021. Could we get a new character reveal for the crossover brawler?
