    Earlier, a powerful earthquake of 6.6 magnitude struck in the island of Hokkaido, Japan. This has left at least 8 people dead, with hundreds of injuries and dozens missing. Due to the tragic earthquake, Nintendo have announced that the Nintendo Direct previously planned for later today has been delayed to some point in the near future.

    Was the 'Haha!' really necessary? I mean, a lot of people have been injured or killed, along with many homes being destroyed. :/

    Really hope the missing people get found soon and I hope all of them will be safe. Earthquakes can ruin your whole life by taking things like your home. My condolences to everyone affected by this.

    Millions of people now just lost a roof above their heads.
    Although, I’ve heard Japanese people are really good at protecting themselfs when an earthquake happens, except for 8 people, who passed away.

    Not sure about this. Seen the earthquake happened before Nintendo announced the direct in the first place. I believe Nintendo saw the backlash of people sick of indies and smash heavy announcements and decided to delay the direct. The earthquake was a nice excuse to back now for down

    Edit nvm. Saw this was a second much more powerful then the one earlier reported this week.

    It's true but this was a 7 magnitude earthquake. It caused massive damage.

    This earthquake was really bad, 7.0 on the Shindo scale. That's as high as the scale goes.

    Even if a ton of damage has been done, I think (or at least I hope) that there won't be many dead people, they're well prepared for things like these.

    Omg Japan can't get a break =(
    Is there an organization setup for donations or anything yet?

    I can't even fathom how terrible this must be for the people there.

    I also heard that the N got knocked off their building, making them “intendo.” I hope everyone in Japan is doing okay after that earthquake.
