Nintendo has always been a great company when it comes to keeping its fans informed and its Nintendo Direct presentation events often come thick and fast.

The latest (for February 2024) is now available and is dedicated to Nintendo Switch games coming up over the next few months. Sadly, there will be no mention of the Nintendo Switch 2, but you can watch it for yourself below.

Here are all the details on the "Partner Showcase".

What to expect during the latest Nintendo Direct?

The new Nintendo Direct presentation is subtitled "Partner Showcase", which gives you an idea of what to expect – plenty of third-party game updates and reveals.

It runs for "around 25 minutes" and primarily features games coming out in the "first half of 2024".

That means there is nothing on the Nintendo Switch 2 (or whatever it turns out to be called). That's not exactly surprising considering it has recently been revealed that Nintendo's next-gen console will now not be available this year. It is claimed that it will be launching in the first quarter of 2025 instead, most likely March.

It could be that Nintendo will announce the machine beforehand, but not until late 2024 at the earliest.
