Nintendo Direct cancelled

The gaming giant previously postponed its annual summer presentation due to the Covid-19 pandemic but it has now been claimed by VentureBeat that it will be axed completely this year.

The report states that Nintendo has told its development partners "not to wait for a Direct even if they have a big announcement" and to go ahead with new gaming reveals on their own.

Thus far, Nintendo has remained tight-lipped about the report - but if the speculation does come to pass, it would be the first time since 2013 that Nintendo has not aired a Nintendo Direct in June.

The gaming firm was reportedly set to make some major announcements during this year's event.

Meanwhile, Reggie Fils-Aime - the former President of the North American office of Nintendo - previously admitted the gaming firm nearly got rid of its famous red and white logo.

He explained that the company did things to "try and age up the logo" to appeal to a wider audience.

He said: "When I joined Nintendo, there was a sense of almost shame that Nintendo appealed to young consumers, and the marketing team at Nintendo of America started doing things with the logo - that classic Nintendo logo in an oval - they would put it into graffiti style, or they'd do different things to try and age up the logo, and I put a stop to that because that is not our brand."
