Nintendo Direct Channel Arrives on YouTube
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
In Japanese, of course
Nintendo Direct has been a regular event in 2012, with game reveals and major announcements served up at regular intervals. It's a strategy that Nintendo is taking seriously, even unveiling 3DS XL in one of the broadcasts, and after the first presentation in February we even argued that it was all part of Nintendo joining the modern age.
When it comes to hosting videos, YouTube is the master of the internet, and Nintendo Japan has created a channel to host its broadcasts. It's gone as far back as the pre-E3 presentation, and the most recent is a short 12 minute video that focuses exclusively on Onitore, a 3DS title in the Brain Training series set to arrive in Japan later this year; a worldwide release is also confirmed. The video is below if you happen to speak Japanese, and even if you don't you can enjoy the sight of Dr Kawashima and Satoru Iwata's polygon heads holding a conversation.
