Nintendo Switch sales cross 5 million units in Japan

The Nintendo Direct is delayed due to Hokkaido natural disaster.

Due to the powerful quake in Hokkaido, Japan, we have chose to delay this week's planned Nintendo Direct. We... Nintendo promised to provide a new date and time "in the near future".

The new date for the upcoming stream is September 13th at 3 PM PT/6 PM ET. Gamescom and PAX West were two occasions for Nintendo to highlight some of the upcoming indie titles for the Nintendo Switch. Perhaps the game will be covered in the delayed Nintendo Direct?

Nintendo hasn't provided details on when the Direct special will air now, but more than likely we'll see it next week, with Yoshi's Crafted World taking the forefront.
