Nintendo Direct after 529 days: Chex Mix also celebrates with a parody!

Nintendo Direct after 529 days

The announcement of a new Nintendo Direct scheduled for today's evening - Wednesday, February 17 - took the public by surprise, interrupting a very long period of absence of the format from Nintendo screens.

They are indeed 529 days have passed since the transmission of the last traditional Nintendo Direct, substantially a year and a half during which the community linked to the Big N had to give up the usual communication system of the Kyoto house. During this period, of course, there was no shortage of news from Nintendo, however, presented through dedicated Direct - such as the one broadcast on the occasion of the 35th anniversary of Super Mario - or individual game announcements or publication dates.

Understandably, the return of a long-lasting and wide-ranging Nintendo Direct was therefore welcomed by the community. In the general enthusiasm, even Chex Mix - a well-known food company producing cereals for breakfast, snacks and more - wanted to ironically comment on the news. Through the twitter you find at the bottom of this news, the company has announced a "Chex Mix Direct", scheduled for February 30th. In the ironic message, about 50 minutes of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 gameplay are promised, during which however Link will only eat Chex Mix snacks. There will obviously be a Chex Mix themed DLC for Super Smash Bros Ultimate!

In short, Direct fever is skyrocketing and involves unexpected subjects: what do you hope can be announced? We remind you that Everyeye will follow the Nintendo Direct live through the Everyeye Twitch Channel.

Nintendo Direct – Play Along With This Bingo Prediction Card While You Tune Into the Stream

February 17, 2021 5:20 AM EST

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you this, but today is a very exciting day for Nintendo fans as they get to tune into the first Nintendo Direct in what feels like forever. To be precise, 529 days ago was the last general Nintendo Direct, which was on September 4th, 2019. The fun and thrill around these Nintendo events are what it’s all about and while we don’t exactly know what will be shown, we do have our very own predictions.

What we do know is that Nintendo will showcase 50 minutes of exciting announcements including details on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and other top titles. As you eagerly watch the Nintendo Direct today at 2 p.m PT /5 p.m ET/10 PM GMT, why not play along with this fan-made Bingo prediction card from Reddit that shows off all of the games that could be making an announcement and obviously some tongue in check predictions that always happen at these directs that include “But wait, there’s more!” and “Available today”.

As we can see from the bingo card, creator Obligatory_Username has speculated that some news on Hollow Knight: Silksong will be announced. Developer Team Cherry has confirmed that the Hollow Knight sequel is coming to Switch so this would be the perfect time to tell fans a release date. Also on the Bingo card, it states that some Zelda news could be revealed, specifically Wind Waker. The Legend of Zelda celebrates its 35th birthday on February 21 this year so we could be looking at a separate announcement, if there is one, for Zelda instead of in today’s Nintendo Direct but stranger things have happened!

Check out the Nintendo Direct Bingo card below or even create your own then weep into your pillow at how wrong you were.
