Nintendo Direct Scheduled for This June Reportedly Canceled
Nintendo may not release Nintendo Direct stream in June, reports say. After the cancellation of E3 2020 was confirmed, it was planned that Nintendo would be hosting a Nintendo Direct in June to present its next list of games.
The video game industry has been strongly affected by the impact of the Coronavirus COVID-19. Large launches and events were definitively canceled with the aim of avoiding large crowds in closed spaces and unwanted infections.
This is how after the cancellation of this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), multiple rumors about online streams, and the expected announcement pattern for the expected events were made to be seen with some ease, Nintendo is one of the first companies seems to be affected by the crisis now.
So, according to a report by VentureBeat, Nintendo Direct plans would not be carried out. This was suggested by the same developer who was responsible for communicating the news to the development studios through a private email.
Sure enough, there were plans to hold a Nintendo Direct event in June this year, but such a picture will have to be cut short after restrictive measures in Japan and teleworking for much of its workers is a priority.
Recall, that reports assured that the studio was preparing the celebration of the thirty-fifth anniversary of the Mario Bros franchise, with the premiere of new remastered games and the arrival of a new Paper Mario.
So it seems that Nintendo will not be there because of the working conditions which have become too difficult in Japan, where the containment measures are extremely strict. We will have to wait a little longer to hear from Mario’s remakes, or from the very dark sequel to Breath of the Wild.
