What time is the Nintendo Direct presentation today?

On Tuesday Nintendo confirmed a date for the next Nintendo Direct and the best news of all is you don't have to wait long - it's coming today!

We know, short notice, but that's how Nintendo like to do things.

You need not worry though, this isn't a Direct Mini or a Direct dedicated to one game in particular.

This should hopefully be the full-fat Nintendo Direct experience with plenty on show.

According to Nintendo's official announcement, the show is set to last a whopping 50 minutes.

"Join us for a Nintendo Direct livestream featuring roughly 50 minutes of information focused on available games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and games coming to Nintendo Switch in the first half of 2021," Nintendo reveals.

Hopefully this means there should be plenty of time to cover all the games we've been dying to know more about; such as Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, Bayonetta 3 and the next Metroid Prime.

We've no doubt there will be further games showcased, potentially a couple of ports from the PS4 and Xbox, but it's the exclusives we're hoping to see most of.

With BlizzCon 2021 just around the corner, there could even be a few new announcements too. After all, Overwatch has been quite a hit on the platform since it dropped. Could more titles be on the way?

What time is the Nintendo Direct today?

The Nintendo Direct for February 17, 2021 is scheduled to begin today at 10 pm (UK time).

That's 2pm PT or 5pm ET for those in the States.

It means a late-night watch for folks in the United Kingdom, so best stock up on coffee now to ensure you don't fall asleep and miss the news.
