It’s been a good long while since we got to hype over a brand new Nintendo Direct, but the wait is finally over – as long as you have an interest in Pokemon, that is.
Nintendo have announced a new Pokemon Direct for February 26th/27th. In Japan, this will be on none other than Pokemon Day – the 20th Anniversary of the release of the games that started it all.
- USA (PST) – 7AM, 26th February
- UK (GMT) – 3PM, 26th February
- Europe (CET) – 4PM, 26th February
- Japan – (JST) – Midnight, 27th February
- Australia – (Canberra) – 2AM, 27th February
Given the recent hype around the juggernaut series, as well as the length of time since the last release, the odds must be good that we’ll see a new main series title announced. But will that game be the almost inevitable Pokemon Z, or perhaps it could be the dawn of a brand new generation? There’s also a good chance we might hear more about the long awaited Pokemon Go, but of course we’ll have to wait and see.
And you never know, if a new main series game ends up as a launch title for the handheld portion of the NX, we might even end up getting that long awaited HD home console game. We can always dream…
