It’s time to get excited gamers, because we just witnessed our very first Nintendo Direct of the year 2022 – and we only had to wait until February. If you ask us, we’d consider that as a major win. Quick, pop the champagne!
It was only revealed on Tuesday 8th of February that we would be receiving a new Nintendo Direct the day after, but that didn’t stop social media communities across Twitter and Facebook from exploding with wild theories. Would we see a glimpse of a new Fire Emblem game, or perhaps something Xenoblade related? Or maybe another Tales of game will get ported to the Nintendo Switch?
So many theories, so little time.
What we got was a flurry of announcements and some really big surprises that we can’t wait to talk more about in the future.
With so many new games announced – and at a very bad time if you’re situated in the UK like we are – it isn’t any surprise you might have missed the event. But don’t worry: we’ve got everything you need to know listed down below.
