A 6.7 magnitude earthquake has hit the island of Hokkaido. From the reports that I have seen, 7 are reported dead, 150 injured, and at least 40 are missing. In the wake of this disaster, Nintendo has decided to delay their Nintendo Direct scheduled for today (August 6, 20180. As of now, Nintendo has not aired a new date for the direct, but I would not expect it anywhere within the next week at least.
While I am disappointed that I will not be able to gather around the TV with my friends today and watch the direct, more than anything else I sincerely hope all those affected are able to recover from this tragedy.
