Just a day ago Nintendo revealed plans for another Nintendo Direct presentation to take place. It would have covered upcoming titles for Switch and 3DS but has now been postponed.
Japan has been facing some extreme weather conditions lately from heatwaves to typhoons. Now, a natural disaster in the form of a deadly earthquake has just hit the Hokkaido region of the country. Because of this, Nintendo has decided to delay the presentation until further notice.
Safety comes above all else in situations such as this. They will announce a new date and time in the near future. Until then, we have the people of Japan in our thoughts as they deal with the tragic events.
