february 2022 nintendo direct live stream

The February 2022 Nintendo Direct will be kicking off in just a bit, and we’ve set up a live stream. We actually have separate embeds ready to go for North America, Europe, and Japan.

As was announced yesterday, the event will begin at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 10 PM in the UK / 11 PM in Europe. We mentioned this previously, but it’ll focus on Switch games launching during the first half of 2022 – though Nintendo could go beyond that window for some games. In any case, we’re in for 40 minutes of news.

You can watch the February 2022 Nintendo Direct as it happens with the live stream below. We’ll also have a live blog going throughout the event plus additional coverage on the main site during and after it airs.
