We can expect the next Direct from February

Although the first Direct this year has not yet been officially announced, if we look at the dates of previous years, it is quite easy to deduce when we can expect it. In the last few years, i.e. from 2019 to 2022, the live streams took place three times in February. Only 2020 was an exception with a Mini Direct at the end of March.

The Nintendo Direct has been broadcast in German since 2012 and in its history the stream has only slipped once into April. In all other years it took place in March at the latest, often as early as February. So let’s assume that nothing changes, we can expect an announcement soon – most likely in February or March.

That could be shown at the first direct
