Nintendo Direct Announcement Postponed Due to quake


Nintendo Direct cancelled because of Japanese earthquake

Update 09/06/18 at 3:05 a.m.: Nintendo has delayed today's Nintendo Direct due to the powerful quake that struck Hokkaido today. We suspect the rescheduled video, therefore, will discuss Super Mario Party, which comes to Switch on 5 October, as well as the new Luigi's Mansion, coming soon to Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo has apologised for delaying the Direct but I'm sure you can understand why they made a decision to do it. Then, the natural disaster hit Japan's northernmost island, leaving at least nine dead and hundreds injured, with mudslides ravaging the countryside and small towns along the way. The epicenter was within Hokkaido's town of Atsuma, which is near the southern side of the island. Landslides have been a major problem in the aftermath of this quake, and there have been widespread power outages. If you want to know how to watch Nintendo Direct, you've come to the right place.

Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent natural disasters to hit Japan. It's the second natural disaster to wreak havoc on Nintendo in as many days, with a typhoon also having knocked the letter "N" off Nintendo's headquarters.

Yesterday, Nintendo announced that a new Nintendo Direct broadcast centered around upcoming games for the 3DS and Switch.

And Google may be interested in making its new products available in more European markets earlier than in previous years. There was hubbub around the launch of the original adapter, which Google was hawking for an nearly insulting $20.

With a Nindies Showcase released not too long ago, one should expect higher profile titles to be highlighted this time around.

What do you like to see from the next Nintendo Direct?

Super Mario Bros is one of 20 NES games that will be available for free on the service, with new online features added.

The ocean waters that Florence is travelling over are about 2.7 degrees (1.5 degrees Celsius) warmer than normal, McNoldy said. Almost 1000 prisoners in SC will not be moved from their cells, despite a mandatory evacuation order in the area.

Perhaps, multiple indie games would be announced at the Nintendo Direct event for the Nintendo Switch Online service. How this goes will probably depend on the ongoing situation in Japan over the next few days, as the country recovers from these disgusting disasters.

NintendoLife reports the next Nintendo Direct to be scheduled for September 6 4pm PDT or 7pm EDT, meaning September 7 at 1am CEST or 12am BST. Our deepest condolences go out to Japan in the wake of the natural disasters.
