25-Minute Nintendo Direct: Partner Showcase Announced for February 21

Nintendo has announced its first official Direct showcase of the year. The upcoming presentation is dubbed a ‘Nintendo Direct: Partner Showcase’.

The Nintendo Direct: Partner Showcase will be held on Wednesday, February 21st, 2024. As revealed by the company on X (formally Twitter), it’ll be roughly 25 minutes in length and will focus on “Nintendo Switch games coming in the first half of 2024 from our publishing and development partners.”.

Unfortunately, outside of the above post, there has been official information given on what to expect. Of course, knowing that it’ll be a showcase primarily focused on partnering publishers, we can gather there won’t be too many (if any) first-party Nintendo announcements. Don’t expect to be seeing the long-awaited ‘Switch 2.’ Especially given the rumours that the hardware has been quietly delayed until 2025.

Of course, there is still room to speculate. There are several announced third-party games for Switch that have yet to be released. This includes Cat Quest 3, Contra: Operation Galuga, Heavenly Bodies, Kingdom Come: Deliverance – Royal Edition, and Penny’s Big Breakaway. Also, coming off of Xbox’s Business Update last week, we may finally see the rumoured Hi-Fi Rush appear from Tango Gameworks.

Nintendo is now the last major publisher to host its own digital showcase this year. In January, Xbox held its Developer_Direct, which revealed Indiana Jones and the Great Circle. Earlier this month, the first PlayStation State of Play was held, highlighting many 2024 games as well as Death Stranding 2 On the Beach.

To tune into the Nintendo Direct: Partner Showcase keep your eyes on YouTube as it’ll be available to watch on-demand on February 21st at 9AM ET/6AM PT.
