Nintendo announced today that their next Direct stream will be coming in the very near future and is scheduled to take place on February 13 beginning at 2 p.m. PST / 5 p.m. EST.

Programming is said to last for roughly 35 minutes where we'll learn more info on Switch titles including new details for the upcoming Fire Emblem: Three Houses which is set for a 2019 release and will be the first mainline game on a home console since 2007.

We do not have information regarding the Direct's full line-up, but Super Smash Bros. Ultimate news has a good chance of showing up during the event considering where the game currently sits.

Persona 5's Joker was announced as the first DLC character as a part of Smash Ultimate's Fighters Pass over two months ago though we have yet to see any gameplay for him or even know what the masked vigilante looks like in the title.

Piranha Plant has been available in Ultimate for almost two weeks now, and we first saw its gameplay trailer revealed almost three months before the fighter was officially available. Isabelle was also announced for the title at the end of a general Direct stream though her reveal was connected to a new Animal Crossing game coming to the Switch too.

There have been rumors and rumblings of Erdrick from Dragon Quest also joining the Smash roster following Joker, but a new mainline Fire Emblem game could mean another representative for the series that already has over a half dozen featured in Ultimate. You can take a look at Nintendo's full announcement below.
