Nintendo Direct February 2023 – all the news you may have missed

Nintendo provided some release dates, and announcements, and showed off new trailers during the Nintendo Direct this evening. We got to see a new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, we were provided with a release date for Pikmin 4 and Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, and the company shadow dropped Metroid Prime Remastered, but there was more to presentation than that. Disney Illusion Island is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch on July 28 Other highlights of the video presentation include Professor Layton and The New World of Steam, Disney Illusion Island, Baten Kaitos I &…

Pikmin 4 is finally coming to Nintendo Switch in 2023

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. It’s been a long time coming for Pikmin fans. Do you remember back in 2015 when Shigeru Miyamoto said Pikmin 4 was close to completion? Me neither… but Pikmin fans do. Two years later at E3, Miyamoto was much quieter about where the game stood, while still advising that it was progressing. Just in case you missed it, catch the brand-new Pikmin 4 teaser trailer right here. Regardless, Pikmin fans won’t need to wait too much longer, we’d hope. During…

Nintendo Direct September 2022 rumours suggest big news for Zelda fans

Before you get excited, it’s not Breath of the Wild 2 news. It’s still something we’ve all been waiting for, though! Just yesterday, a rumour emerged that the next Nintendo Direct is much closer than you might’ve though, and it’s going to be packed with news for keen Zelda fans. This report comes directly from Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb in a recent stream to YouTube. Here’s a glimpse at The Wind Waker HD port to Wii U, which we’ll hopefully be playing on the Switch soon! In the video, Grubb suggests that a Nintendo Direct could be happening the week…

A Big Nintendo Direct Might Be Coming Soon

In years past, this would have been the week for the big annual June Nintendo Direct, but in 2022 the Mario maker is so far nowhere to be seen. But the company could still be planning to close out the month with a showcase of some kind, according to a writer at Sony Santa Monica.

10 Years Later, We Can’t Stop Watching Nintendo Directs

Way back in 2011, the very first “Nintendo Direct” featured then-Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé in a white, echo-y room promoting the struggling 3DS by talking about how it was getting Hulu Plus and could record 3D videos. “Up to 10 minutes of 3D video can be recorded of anything you want,” he said. “Birthdays, holiday family gatherings, or your brother drooling in his sleep.” But 10 years later, Nintendo’s product marketing experiment has gone from awkward infomercial to appointment viewing for everyone who plays games, and even some who don’t.

It’s Like A Nintendo Direct, But For 3D Platformers

I love a good 3D platformer, but they aren’t as common as they were back in the ‘90s and 2000s. However, indie developers are here to save the day for folks craving colorful and fun jumping simulators. Hubworld is an indie-focused digital event happening later this month that is entirely dedicated to showcasing new, upcoming platformers.

Why Wasn’t The ‘Switch Pro’ Announced At E3? Nintendo Still Won’t Say

During Nintendo’s annual shareholder meeting this week, the firm was asked the obvious question: Why wasn’t the ‘Switch Pro’ shown at E3? It’s a question we asked here at Kotaku, and something both fans and investors want to know. The new version, which Kotaku predicted could be revealed at E3, was supposed to have a larger OLED handheld screen and enough power to output 4K graphics while docked. The console was supposed to go into production this summer for a holiday release. “It was widely reported that a new version of the Nintendo Switch would be announced this June at…

What To Expect From Nintendo At E3 2021

Got your crystal ball handy? Hope so, because Nintendo won’t be holding its traditional press event, Nintendo Direct, until Tuesday, June 15. Though that’s the final day of E3, this is probably going to be a last-but-not-least sort of scenario, because Nintendo’s widely expected to bring out some big guns for its post-covid return to the biggest video game expo in the world. If you’d like to watch live on Tuesday, you can find the details on Nintendo’s E3 2021 landing page. The Nintendo Direct livestream starts at noon ET and will last around 40 minutes, after which the company’s…

Twitch’s Official Channel Won’t Stream Nintendo’s E3 Direct Due To Co-Streaming Restrictions

Later today, Nintendo will broadcast its Direct for this year’s E3. Leading up to the event, the Kyoto-based game company has issued a request on its Japanese Twitter account: Do not co-stream our presentation. “Please refrain from mirroring Nintendo Direct footage and sound during the Nintendo Direct livestream,” the tweet reads. Nintendo will allow simultaneous viewing (reactions, basically) without mirroring—and thus, without streaming sound or footage.Once the presentation is finished, Nintendo has okayed the uploading of clips, but with the caveat that the use of footage and sound follows the company’s previously released guidelines.In Japan, Nintendo clearly does not want…
