On this page, you will find all there is to know about the various Nintendo Direct presentations: when they take place, what they’re all about, how you can watch them, and more. We’re also going to have links to our articles about the various games and services showcased during each presentation.

NB: since this page was created on January 9th 2018, we’re only going to list presentations airing in 2018 and later. Also, we will have an archive post for each year at the bottom of this page.

Nintendo Direct – What is it?

Nintendo Direct are presentations streamed live over the internet (YouTube, Twitch, NicoNico), or uploaded right away for special presentations (Mini or Micro, for example) showcasing upcoming games and services for Nintendo platforms (Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS).

Unannounced games and services are frequently revealed during those presentations, which also provide further details and footage for previously announced titles.
