Nintendo Direct in June is a highly anticipated event for Nintendo fans every year. But if the rumor of the day is confirmed, the players will have to do without this year. Nintendo's online broadcast could indeed be added to the long list of indirect victims of COVID-19.

Nintendo is currently telling its partners that it will not broadcast its traditional Nintendo Direct in June (in the past, just before the opening of E3).
Originally, the Kyoto firm planned a presentation for the month of June as usual. In addition to revealing its releases coming in 2020 on Switch, this video, certainly a Nintendo Direct, would also have shown third-party publisher games with which Nintendo was planning things until recently.
According to sources of Jeff Grubb, organizational complications linked to the implementation of work at Nintendo caused by the COVID-19 pandemic oblige the manufacturer to upset its calendar. Also according to the sources of the journalist, uncertainty reigns at this time at Nintendo regarding the future of Nintendo Direct in the short term. If Nintendo decides to release one, it may not be until the end of summer.
If Jeff Grubb's sources tell the truth, that doesn't necessarily mean that Nintendo won't be making an announcement until the end of summer. It could just be that these announcements are made separately, as and when. Many corridor noises say for example that the Japanese glove is about to release editions on Switch of several Mario games in 3D proposed as part of Mario's 35th anniversary.
