Tune in 9/6 at 3pm PT for a new Nintendo Direct featuring around 35 minutes of information on upcoming Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch titles.
nintendo has delayed the direct internationally due to the magnitude 6.7 earthquake that hit hokkaido today just following the category 5 typhoon jebi that knocked the letter N off their hq building in kyoto about 2 days ago
even though the direct is pre-recorded, it wouldve been terribly disrespectful for nintendo to have hyped up video games while people are dying and struggling so it’s been pushed back to a date yet to be announced but soon. i’m glad nintendos international subsidiaries are following along in the postponement announcement even if their countries didnt experience any disaster that would warrant a delay. it’s very considerate for the consumers in japan who are dealing with much more pressing matters who wouldnt have been able to catch the direct with the rest of the world.
ive already seen people in america getting mad about the delay on twitter? like………nintendo is being very respectful by making the livelihoods of people a priority over their 35 minute showcase of video games. and its not that hard to see why. im sad but im much, much more sad that such disasters had to happen in the first place and hurt so many civilians and they have my deepest condolences. living in the US, im not sure how to help but if anyone knows or has ideas just add them
anyway just understand this is why theres no direct later today
