Rumor: Nintendo Direct rescheduled for this Thursday

Several sources seem to confirm the Nintendo Direct will air this Thursday, a week after its delay.

Last week Nintendo delayed its Nintendo Direct presentation as a response to earthquakes that rocked Hokkaido, a small island in Japan. Since then, fans have been scrambling to determine when the Direct will air. We've had a few leaks like Civilization 6 getting prematurely announced and the reveal of a Pokemon Let's Go Switch special edition, but the full 35-minute Direct has yet to be seen.

Nintendo Life is reporting that the Direct will air at its original time, 3pm PST this Thursday, September 13. Datamining efforts in Splatoon 2 revealed that content rotations were delayed until this date and a Japanese Twitter account for a game is teasing a special announcement for September 13.

Nintendo Direct Times

  • North America: 3pm PDT / 6pm EDT
  • Europe: 11pm BST / Midnight CEST (Friday 14th September)
  • Australia: 8am AEST (Friday 14th September)

The Nintendo Direct is slated to last 35-minutes and will discuss both Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS games.
