Last Wednesday, a Nintendo Direct was announced that would be airing the following day. However, due to an earthquake in Japan, the presentation was pushed back to an unspecified date.

We’ve been waiting on a new date for that presentation since then. There’s been some chatter about the Nintendo Direct airing this Thursday instead, in large part because of some information datamined from Splatoon 2. This is now being backed up by a report that Nintendo Life who has heard similarly from “trusted sources”.

Platinum Train, a title currently available on the Japanese Switch eShop, is also teasing an announcement for this Thursday. However, it’s unclear if the news is related to something that would be shown in a Nintendo Direct.

The tweet is as follows:

If the new Nintendo Direct is indeed on track for this Thursday, we should be hearing about it by tomorrow morning at the latest.
