Everyone should know Iwata Asks by now. Satoru Iwata's online series in which he talks to developers about the development of their game. The developers may talk about how they conceived the idea for their game, what direction of gameplay they were going for, and bring up ideas considered for the game. It'w very informative. Especially if you're a fan of whatever game, system or application discussed in the series.
However, it's been a while since we had an Iwata Asks, leaving me to think that the series has been cancelled.
Few games have been released in a row that haven't been given an Iwata Asks.
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
Steel Diver Sub Wars
Kirby Triple Deluxe (Japan)
That's a good amount of games that dropped by. Some of them are major games in Nintendo's line up, that hasn't been given the Iwata Asks Treatment.
Do you think that Iwata Asks has been cancelled? Do you even care if it does? Discuss below.

Hey yeah, I would've expected ones for Tropical Freeze and Bravely Default. I won't assume cancellation until Mario Kart 8 goes by without an Iwata Asks, though.

As @ogo79 said, the SNS-RZ-USA is a prime giveaway that it's not a legit retail cart.
And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

Well, earlier he asked me "Hey, when will I.....will I be famous?"
And I told him "I can't answer.....I can't answer that".

You think there's a niche for Iwata styled Magic 8 Balls...?

I love Iwata Asks (laughs), and I would be very surprised if it was cancelled (laughs).
Hooefully it will be back soon! (laughs)

I never really read Iwata Asks, but I do recall a few articles on here throwing up interesting tidbits provided by Iwata Asks. They had some interesting insight in there, so I'd miss them if they were cancelled.
Maybe Iwata's been busy? Gotta sell dem Wii Us.
I'm pretty okay.

No Iwata Asks for Mario Kart 8… Iwata Asks is still linked on www.nintendo.com's homepage, but it seems to be on hiatus. Or the Mario Kart 8 one will show up within a few days.

I have been wondering the same. I love those interviews.
In any case, I agree with @ToastyYogurt
I will comment in this thread, never being able to find it again.

In a recent shareholder meeting, the issue of Iwata Asks not having been updated was brought up:
Q15: Iwata Asks hasn’t been updated in some time. Is there any reason for this other than his health issues?
A15: Our homepage is just one of many ways that we convey information about our products. There is the health reason, but we are considering various challenges in light of forming cooperation with our customers and best conveying our message to the greatest number of people. As for the President’s condition, he is conducting work via e-mail. Iwata Asks will be resumed thereafter.
Miyamoto: Iwata Asks not being updated has nothing to do with his condition. Considering that the PR for those interviews only reach a few people, their exposure has been reduced.
