No upcoming Nintendo Direct has been announced. The date of the next Nintendo Direct is unknown.

 


 

It has been 68 days since the last general Nintendo Direct, which was on September 13th, 2022.

The last non-general Nintendo Direct was an Indie World Showcase, which aired on November 10th, 2022 — 10 days ago.

 

What is a Nintendo Direct?

 

Nintendo Directs are online presentations or live shows put on by Nintendo, which are used to announce or discuss upcoming games, consoles, amiibo, or other Nintendo-related goodness! These usually air simultaneously on Nintendo’s official YouTube and Twitch channels. Nintendo Directs are highly-anticipated semi-regular events that are sure to excite Nintendo fans — hence the existence of this tool.

The very first Nintendo Direct aired in Japan and North America on October 21st, 2011. Since its debut, Nintendo Directs have expanded to include game-specific broadcasts, indie game showcases, shorter, Nintendo Direct “Minis,” and more.

 

Types of Nintendo Directs

 

Outside of the big Nintendo Directs fans know and love, Nintendo also airs smaller, themed, and/or product-specific Direct presentations throughout the year. Here are all the different types of Nintendo Directs that currently air:

 

TypeTypical DurationContent Shown
Nintendo DirectNintendo Direct Logo25–50 minutesThese are big presentations in which Nintendo announces and/or showcases lots of information about software and/or hardware. These are what we refer to as "general" Nintendo Directs, and what people usually refer to as "Nintendo Directs." Nintendo's annual E3 presentation has been a Nintendo Direct of this size since 2013.
Nintendo Direct MiniNintendo Direct Mini Logo5–15 minutesThese are smaller Nintendo Direct presentations in which Nintendo announces and/or showcases information about software and/or hardware. These tend to focus on a handful of games/products rather than a larger set.
Product-specific Nintendo Direct5–50 minutesThese are special presentations that cover specific software titles, both from Nintendo and third-party developers. These are usually hosted by the game's producer, a member of the development staff, or just use a narrator. Some examples of these include Mr. Sakurai Presents showcases for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighters, as well as the Monster Hunter Direct and Animal Crossing: New Horizons Directs that aired during 2020 and 2021.
Pokémon PresentsBanner-PokemonPresents10–20 minutesThese are presentations that focus exclusively on Pokémon games. Typically, big Pokémon news will be shared via these rather than other types of Nintendo Directs. These types of Directs were called "Pokémon Directs" from their debut on January 28th, 2013 to January 7th, 2020. After that, they have been exclusively called "Pokémon Presents."
Indie World ShowcaseBanner-IndieWorld17–28 minutesThese are presentations that focus on titles by independent game developers. This Direct type was originally only shown in Japan but later began airing in North America and Europe. Previously, these types of Nintendo Directs were referred to as "Nindies Showcase" or "Indie Highlights" presentations.
Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner ShowcaseBanner-NintendoDirectMiniPartnerShowcase8-25 minutesThese are smaller Nintendo Direct presentations that originally aired throughout 2020 in lieu of larger Directs before returning in 2022. These include information about games from Nintendo's developing and publishing partners.

 

Retired Nintendo Direct presentation types

 

Nintendo has also stopped airing certain types of Nintendo Directs. Here’s a list of all the discontinued Direct types:

 

TypeTypical DurationContent Shown
Nintendo Direct MicroNintendo Direct Micro Logo17:12This was a type of presentation that only aired once, on June 1st, 2015. It mainly showcased Nintendo 3DS titles. Although the the Nintendo Direct Mini debuted before the Nintendo Direct Micro, the Micro has since been replaced by the Mini.
Nintendo 3DS DirectNintendo 3DS Direct Logo30-50 minutesThese were Nintendo Direct presentations in which Nintendo shared information about software and hardware related to Nintendo 3DS and 2DS consoles. Only six of these ever aired, with the last airing on September 1st, 2016. However, information about Nintendo 3DS games continued to appear in other types of Directs after this type was retired.
Wii U DirectWii U Direct Logo30-50 minutesThese were Nintendo Direct presentations in which Nintendo shared information about software and hardware related to the Wii U. Only five of these ever aired, with the last airing on January 23rd, 2013. However, information about Wii U games continued to appear in other types of Directs after this type was retired.
Nindies ShowcaseNindies Showcase Logo10-30 minutesThese were Direct presentations that showcased titles by independent game developers. Only five of these ever aired, with the last airing on March 20th, 2019. This type of presentation was only shown in North America and Europe and was eventually replaced by "Indie World Showcase" Directs.
Indie HighlightsIndie Highlights Logo17-23 minutesThese were Direct presentations that showcased titles by independent game developers. Only two of these ever aired, with the last airing on January 23rd, 2019. This type of presentation was only shown in Europe and was eventually replaced by "Indie World Showcase" Directs.

 

How often is there a Nintendo Direct?

 

General Nintendo Directs (the long ones full of big announcements) are held at least three times a year, with smaller presentations sprinkled on dates in-between. These typically air specifically during February, June, and September, although there are exceptions.

Let’s take a look at 2021’s Nintendo Direct line-up, for example: There were three general Nintendo Directs on the dates of September 22nd, June 15th (Nintendo’s E3 presentation), and February 16th.

2020 was different than previous years due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic affecting game development and Nintendo’s internal processes, so there were no big general Nintendo Directs that year (instead, these were replaced by “Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcases”).

In 2019, there were four general Nintendo Directs on the dates of September 4th, June 11th (Nintendo’s E3 presentation), May 15th, and February 13th. In 2018, there were three general Nintendo Directs on the dates of September 13th, June 12th (another of Nintendo’s E3 presentations), and March 8th.

Between those, though, were smaller presentations like Indie World streams, game-specific Directs/presentations, and more.

 

Which year had the most Nintendo Directs?

 

2013 had the most Nintendo Direct presentations by far, with 30 total across regions. Below, you can see a full breakdown of the types of Nintendo Directs that aired each year since their debut in 2011. All retired Direct types (see above) are bucketed into one column.
