Nintendo Direct February 2022 Watch Along With Game Informer


The latest Nintendo Direct is here, and with it comes dreams of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Hollow Knight: Silksong, and more, but will any of those titles actually make an appearance? Join Game Informer at 3:30 p.m. CT for our official watch-along and preshow live on Twitch!

Your hosts for the occasion are none other than The Council of Alexes (Stadnik and Van Aken). The two Alexes are here to take your questions, react live to all the big announcements, and show the chat a good time as we see what’s next for the Nintendo Switch.

Trying to predict what will be at these Nintendo Directs is like trying to catch Togetic with a Lead Ball in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. While the publishing giant hasn’t said what titles will make an appearance during the longer 40 minute direct, we can venture some guesses given what we know of the company’s upcoming lineup. We know Kirby and the Forgotten Land and Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp fit within that timeframe, so it would make sense to get new looks at the exciting new Switch titles. 

Nintendo has also been steadily dropping new N64 games for Switch Online. A Direct would be a good time to continue that trend (here’s hoping for Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Snap to celebrate the upcoming Pokémon Day on February 27). Will any of the games I listed in the first paragraph make an appearance? Probably not, or maybe yes? You’ll just have to tune in live at 3:30 p.m. CT to find out.
