And we're back! A lengthy Nintendo Direct was originally scheduled for Thursday, September 6th, but the natural disaster that struck Hokkaido, Japan caused Nintendo to delay the broadcast. The original stream was delayed due to the 6.6 magnitude Hokkaido natural disaster, so now it will take place on Thursday, September 13 at 3:00pm Pacific Time.

The UI has been redesigned to fit on the Switch to provide players with easy access to all their city building needs, and the game also comes with support for the Pro Controller.

The delayed Nintendo Direct didn't hold back in showing off the primary features for the Nintendo Switch Online service.

Nintendo sent along instructions in its email, which walks users through the process of linking the appropriate Nintendo Account step by step.

The controllers will sell for $59.99 for a set of two, and will be available to pre-order on Nintendo's website starting on September 18. There will also be cloud-based saves. Both have offered online services for years, but at a much costlier price. Nintendo has announced that the 35-minute presentation will now be taking place tomorrow on Sep 13 at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET.

The whole service is ready for launch, and goes up next week on September 18th.

Nintendo Switch Online has been a long time coming.
