Leaker Suggests First Nintendo Direct of 2022 is Happening Soon

Nintendo Direct presentations are always cause for excitement, as fans get to see the biggest upcoming games that are in development for the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo has not hosted a regular Nintendo Direct since last September, hosting game-specific presentations since then and an Indie World showcase, but little else. Luckily, it seems that the wait for the next Nintendo Direct presentation could be over sooner rather than later.

Samus Hunter, a reputable Nintendo leaker who has accurately leaked Nintendo news many times in the past, believes that the next Nintendo Direct will happen before February 17. Nintendo has traditionally hosted Nintendo Direct events in February, with a new Nintendo Direct airing in February nearly every year since it started hosting them a decade ago. There have been numerous Nintendo Direct presentations held in January as well, so it seems that fans can expect it to air anytime between now and February 17 - assuming Samus Hunter's information is correct, that is.

Samus Hunter has promised to reveal more details about the next Nintendo Direct event in the coming days. Nintendo fans should take the information with a grain of salt for now, however. Samus Hunter's reputation gives them more credibility than other Internet leakers, but it's always best to keep one's expectations in check until an official announcement comes.

It wouldn't be surprising at all if a Nintendo Direct does happen between now and February 17, though, as Nintendo's 2022 slate is currently pretty bare. Pokemon Legends: Arceus has a solid release date for later this month and Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp is dropping April 8, but otherwise Nintendo hasn't offered solid release dates for any of the other Nintendo Switch games that it currently has in the pipeline.

As it stands, there are four Nintendo-published Switch games that are expected to come in 2022 but currently lack a solid release date. These include Bayonetta 3, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Splatoon 3, and the untitled Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel. One has to imagine that at least one of these games is going to release within the first half of the year, so a Nintenedo Direct presentation that puts them back in the spotlight would make a lot of sense.

Whether or not Nintendo hosts a Nintendo Direct within the next months remains to be seen, and since Nintendo sometimes hosts surprise Nintendo Direct events, it's hard to say if fans will even know in advance. But based on history, chances are good that a Nintendo Direct will happen soon.
