Nintendo Direct Set For February 13, 2019

Nintendo Direct Set For February 13, 2019

Super Mario Maker 2 has just been announced during Nintendo's latest direct with a release date of June 2019, just four months away.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses was marketed to be a big part of the Nintendo Direct that aired on Wednesday with Nintendo explicitly saying that new details on the game would be included in the presentation that was set to last around 35 minutes. A new Pokemon game is also supposedly on track for 2019. Stay tuned for all the rest. It will be the first Nintendo Switch Fire Emblem mainline game, so we can't wait to see what it has to offer.

The co-creator of Kingdom Hearts, Shinji Hashimoto, has been promoting news of the Direct on Twitter. Finally, Nintendo will also be streaming the Direct on its website, and while it's only embedded the YouTube stream, you can head over there if you want to get the full Nintendo effect. The reveal at E3 past year showed us it features the familiar grid-based gameplay of previous entries, but with some notable changes, such as armies battling each other in combat and a 3D world for players to explore. By the time the stream ended, Nintendo Switch owners knew to expect a new Super Mario Maker game, a remake of a classic Legend of Zelda title, as well as ports of Dragon Quest XI, Assassin's Creed 3 and so much more.

Winter weather alerts take effect Monday evening
But it's not going to be a ferociously cold wind - I'm seeing high temperatures in the 40s on Wednesday and Thursday . Whether that will mean plowable snow or just a mess of wintry mix, sleet, or freezing rain, is still unclear.

As always, make sure to treat this information as speculation for now - we're sure we'll learn more about the game's release date during the Nintendo Direct later today.

The announcement comes to no surprise, but what is surprising is how long we have until the launch of the game.
