Yesterday, Nintendo tweeted out an announcement for their highly-anticipated Nintendo Direct event, scheduled for February 17th at 2:00pm PT/ 5:00 ET. The effect that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have on the video game industry (games continuously being delayed) is very disheartening so as an active gamer, it was good to see some good news come out of all of this.
A day later, and the Nintendo Direct has come and gone. Let’s just say that Nintendo has a lot of surprises in store for Nintendo Switch owners. And when I mean a lot, I mean a lot.
