Everything Revealed During The Nintendo Direct For February 2024

PlayStation and Xbox‘s early 2024 showcase events are in the rearview mirror, but now it’s time for Nintendo’s turn to get on the digital stage in the company’s annual Nintendo Direct February presentation. This one has been a long time coming, which was originally rumoured to happen sometime in “mid-February.” Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb says the Nintendo Direct was pushed back due to an “Xbox Business update.” Now the wait is over as Nintendo officially confirmed the presentation earlier this week, and we have a full rundown of every game showcased during the 25-minute direct presentation.

However, this time, we have some bad news for Nintendo fans as the first Nintendo Direct of the year was a promoted “Partner Showcase,” which saw Nintendo focus more on their publishing and development partners. This means that before this edition of Nintendo Direct officially began, we knew that Nintendo’s in-house first-party titles wouldn’t make their presence known, with the game showcase much more focused on upcoming third-party and Indie Nintendo Switch titles coming to the handheld console for the first half of 2024.

Now let’s get into it: these are all the games that were showcased during this Nintendo Direct for February 21st, 2024. As always, the Nintendo Direct recap will feature not only the game itself but also a good look at it in trailers, and a release date or a window for each game we learned about today. Now, let’s dive in!
