Nintendo was supposed to give fans a new Direct presentation to talk about games coming for the Switch and the 3DS, but that was delayed. The reason that Nintendo pushed the Direct was due to a “powerful earthquake.” Nintendo hasn’t offered an exact date or time for the Direct to air.
All it has said is that the Nintendo Direct will air in the “near future” and that exact details would be announced later. The presentation was expected to run for about 35 minutes. The longer run time suggested that lots of information would be covered.
Nintendo broadcasts Direct presentations on its official website and Twitch channel. While there have been no specific titles mentioned for the stream, there is speculation. Expected topics include information on the coming Pokémon games and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reports Gamespot.
