Rumor: Nintendo will not host a Nintendo Direct in June due to COVID-19

I guess Japanese are not used to the work from home concept.

Rumor: Nintendo will not host a Nintendo Direct in June

Report cites complications caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.



Nintendo will not host a Nintendo Direct event in June, according to a VentureBeat report.

While the company initially planned to host a Nintendo Direct in June to correspond with E3 2020, it is reportedly telling partner developers plans are off this year due to complications brought about from Japan’s work-from-home order in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Nintendo reportedly planned to reveal its first-party lineup for the remainder of 2020 during the June Nintendo Direct, which would have included highlighting the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario franchise (and the rumored Super Mario game remasters). Now, VentureBeat says, another Nintendo Direct is not likely to arrive until the end of summer.

VentureBeat previously accurately reported the dates of the last Nintendo Direct and the Nintendo Indie World Showcase a week before it.

That is ridiculous.

A digital event doesnt have a live audience.

I'm guessing they don't have the equipment needed to film it at home.

It's game footage + voice over. I can't imagine not having equipment for that.

If i had to guess i would say it's the lack of a green screen so they can show up in a suit and bow. It's the kind of old fashioned thing i expect from Nintendo.
