How to watch the Nintendo Direct presentation

As usual, the Nintendo Direct presentation will stream from several official Nintendo outlets. These include the company's YouTube and Twitch channels, as well as the official Nintendo Direct website. To make things easier for you, however, we also have the stream embedded right here, so you can watch it in its entirety without needing to even leave this page.

The entire presentation will last approximately 40 minutes. Nintendo has not given us specifics on which games to expect aside from titles releasing in the first half of 2023. This could include The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which launches in May, but several other upcoming Switch exclusives don't have release dates--like Metroid Prime 4 and the indefinitely delayed Advance Wars 1 + 2 Re-Boot Camp.
