Nintendo Direct roundup – all the biggest reveals

It’s felt like forever since the last big Nintendo Direct in September of last year. However, a surprise full-fat Direct landed earlier today, February 17, and we’ve compiled all of the biggest reveals in one handy list. Today’s livestream ran for roughly 50 minutes and focused on available Switch games, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as well as some fresh titles set to arrive throughout the year.

Fan expectations were at an all-time high prior to the show, what with The Legend of Zelda’s 35th anniversary just on the horizon. Personally, we’d been hoping to see some sort of The Legend of Zelda remastered collection.

Thankfully, Nintendo delivered a surprising, though still very welcome, reveal in the form of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. And that wasn’t even the final major announcement of the night. Nope, that honour went to Splatoon 3’s reveal.

So, without further ado, here’s every major announcement from today’s Nintendo Direct in quickfire form:
