Rumor: Nintendo not planning any sort of Nintendo Direct for the time being

A couple of weeks ago, a report from Venturebeat claimed that Nintendo will be skipping its expected Nintendo Direct in June. This has been an annual tradition for the company to announce new games, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the company’s near-term plans have been affected.

Venturebeat now says in an additional report today that “Nintendo isn’t planning a Direct at all for now.” The site also reiterated that development partners have been told not to wait for such a presentation to happen, even if they have a big announcement.

Nintendo chose to unveil Paper Mario: The Origami King without prior warning last week. That type of move is atypical for the company, as it generally tends to announce bigger games in Nintendo Direct broadcasts.
