The 50-minute stream will showcase currently-available games, like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Nintendo Switch games arriving ‘in the first half of 2021’. If LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga hasn’t been delayed as some fans fear, it would fall very nicely into that latter category.
That’s because as far as we know, TT Games’ ambitious title still has a release date of ‘spring 2021’. The question is: would the studio use a Nintendo-specific showcase to reveal the first details on its Star Wars sequel (beyond a few magazine article tidbits) since Gamescom in August 2020?
It seems unlikely, but it’s not entirely out of the realms of possibility. The LEGO games are Nintendo’s best-selling third party video game franchise, after all, while both the platform and games share similar family-friendly values. If TT Games was planning to use any one console to reveal more about LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, it would surely be the Switch.
You can tune into the Nintendo Direct showcase at 10pm UK time, or check back with Brick Fanatics to see what – if anything – comes of the livestream. In the meantime, here’s everything we do know about LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, including which bonus minifigure you’ll get for picking up the Deluxe Edition.
