Nintendo Direct Announcement Postponed Due to natural disaster

It's safe to assume that the Nintendo Direct September 2018 will be occurring on next Friday, which is 14th September. Originally scheduled for midnight tonight in local time, the Direct has been postponed. Nintendo announced their decision via Twitter at this morning at 3 AM Eastern Time.

Gamespot reports that Nintendo has delayed their latest Nintendo Direct event due to the natural disaster that hit Hokkaido, Japan. Nintendo has apologised for delaying the Direct but I'm sure you can understand why they made a decision to do it.

Due to a 6.7 magnitude quake on the island of Hokkaido, Nintendo has postponed its Direct event focusing on the Switch and 3DS devices. Typhoon Jebi, the most powerful typhoon to hit Japan this century, sideswiped the Western edge of Japan, leaving 10 dead and paralyzing transportation in some areas. Sites like Global Giving do, however, have drives set up for helping people affected by the meteorological events in Japan over the course of this summer, which include more landslides caused by extremely heavy rain.

Pulling off a successful heist is made even harder by the fact that other players are notified when someone picks up a Jewel. Oh, and the getaway van floats, so your team will have to build you a way to get up there, probably while being shot at.

The presentation will focus on Nintendo 3DS games and future updates. This week finds some good deals on individual video games (see the list below), as well as some conditional discounts for buying things like a Nintendo Switch or a game over $30.

Nintendo will reschedule its livestream. How this goes will probably depend on the ongoing situation in Japan over the next few days, as the country recovers from these frightful disasters. Once the Direct does happen, you'll be able to watch it live on Nintendo's official website, their YouTube channel, or other streaming platforms with other streamers.

Talking about this direct taking place, apparently until yesterday it was only in rumors and no one was sure that it will be actually taking place today.
