Nintendo Direct Rescheduled, Switch Online Launches September 18

Get ready to see the delayed peek at what's to come for 3DS and Switch


Nintendo now has a new date for the Direct presentation that was scheduled for September 6. The original stream was delayed due to the 6.6 magnitude Hokkaido earthquake, so now it will take place on Thursday, September 13 at 3:00pm Pacific Time. 


This week's Nintendo Direct will be a 35-minute showcase of upcoming 3DS and Switch games. 


Nintendo also took the opportunity to announce that the Switch Online service will begin in North America on Tuesday, September 18. All Nintendo Account holders will get a free seven-day trial, and more information about features and pricing are available on Nintendo's site.
