Watch Today's Nintendo Pokemon Direct Right Here

Come watch seven minutes of new Pokemon information with your pals at USG.

Nintendo hit the news last week with the announcement of Reggie Fils-Aime’s retirement, but today the firm is back in the news with a brand new Pokemon Direct. The Direct is set to take place later today, in the early hours of February 27.

Just below, you can see the embedded video for the upcoming Pokemon Direct. The action will be kicking off at exactly 6 a.m. PT/9 a.m. ET, and will be running for approximately seven minutes.

The question is, what new information could be getting announced in the new Pokemon Direct? All eyes are obviously on the upcoming Pokemon project for the Nintendo Switch, which is set to bring Gen 8 Pokemon to the series.

Last we heard about the core Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch, it had been pushed back into late 2019. Could a release date announcement be on the cards during today’s Pokemon Direct? It’s certainly not out of the question, and if not a release date, then we should definitely expect to see the debut of some gameplay for the project.

But all you need to do is stick around here for the latest information from the Pokemon Direct. We'll be reporting all the information as it breaks, live here at USG, and we’ll have a recap of the Direct, a breakdown of all the new information, an more going live shortly after the presentation.
