Nintendo Direct September presentation postponed

Nintendo’s first all-encompassing Direct presentation since E3 2018

Update: Nintendo has delayed the Sept. 6 presentation in response to a high-magnitude earthquake in northern Japan. The company has not revealed a rescheduled date and time, but we’ll keep you posted. These changes are reflect below

A Nintendo Direct will stream sometime this month. Originally scheduled for Sept. 6, Nintendo announced the morning of that it will reschedule the presentation due to widespread damage caused by a landslide in Hokkaido, Japan.

As per the event’s landing page, Nintendo will show off games for both 3DS and Switch during the upcoming presentation. The Nintendo Direct will run about 35 minutes, according to the company. That sounds like the company will have a good deal to talk about, which is always exciting for fans. (We hope, anyway.) It’s also the first time since E3 2018 that Nintendo will devote time to a number of games, not just a single title.

We’ll have more on what to expect from this Nintendo Direct later today, but here’s a sampling of what could get some airtime: Super Mario Party, which comes to Switch on Oct. 5; and the port of Luigi’s Mansion, soon headed for Nintendo 3DS.

Here’s hoping that Nintendo also finds the time to discuss more details about Nintendo Switch Online, its subscription service that is supposedly due out later this month.

To watch the Direct live, check out the YouTube embed above. Nintendo also hosts an archive of previous presentations on the event’s website, should you want to relive previous Directs in the meantime.
