Nintendo Direct Delayed Due to Hokkaido Earthquake

The Nintendo Direct presentation scheduled for today has been delayed due to an earthquake in Japan, and will be aired sometime down the line.

September 6, 2018

Yesterday Nintendo announced a new Nintendo Direct presentation that was supposed to air today.

Earlier this morning a magnitude 6.7 struck the Japanese northern island of Hokkaido. According to NHK, the quake caused four deaths while dozens are still missing at the moment of this writing.

Due to this devastating earthquake, Nintendo decided to delay the livestream out of respect. A new date has not been announced, but the official Twitter account advises that it will be provided “in the near future.”

At the moment, we don’t precisely know what the Nintendo Direct was supposed to showcase, besides the fact that it was about upcoming Switch and 3DS games.

Of course, we’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear about the new date, but for the moment all we can do is to wait for further information.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
