It will, instead, inform us of a new time and date in the "near future".

Unfortunately, Nintendo has chose to delay the debut of this Direct due to a quake that hit Hokkaido, Japan last night. The reason behind the announcement of this news arises from Nintendo's claim to make further available before the September launch of Nintendo Switch Online revealing details about saving your data for online access. Nintendo has apologised for delaying the Direct but I'm sure you can understand why they chose to do it.

Nintendo's upcoming Direct was supposedly going to be a large one, serving as a 35-minute-long showcase for upcoming Nintendo Switch and 3DS titles.

Nintendolife are not new to releasing information on Nintendo Direct presentations.

The natural disaster occurred early Thursday with a magnitude of 6.7 and follows Typhoon Jebi, the strongest typhoon to hit the mainland of Japan since 1993. The 7.0 magnitude natural disaster has claimed the lives of at least seven people and buried many homes under landslides.

Nintendo Switch On-line would possibly be required to ride online multiplayer for the bulk of first-event Nintendo games.

Out of the gate, Nintendo Switch On-line will delivery with 20 traditional NES games bundled as segment of the $20/yr service. With Nintendo having already hosted two Nintendo Directs that focused mainly on indie games, it'would be interesting to see if there is really more on the way.

Presumably Super Smash Bros. However, some eagle-eyed users were able to capture an image of the game before it was taken down, revealing its official name - Yoshi's Crafted World. You'll be to watch it on Nintendo's YouTube channel, or below.
