A small part of me wants the Directs to be retired since they were Iwata-san's baby. However they are an amazing delivery service so I'll just have to feel awkweird about it for a while.

I recall seeing this type of information in Nintendo Directs before, with hardware bundles and DLC. Even if it's been announced, Nintendo will have directs "fully unveil" them, or even just provide the latest updates on them.

Sometimes, but usually they aren't the highlight of the direct if they have already been announced. The only times I remember hearing about a hardware bundle in a direct are when the New 3DS was announced for the west and the WWHD bundle. And again, it was an aside to a bigger feature of the game itself.

I don't see why Nintendo would stop making Directs.

I doubt it. Though Nintendo probably would want to wait a bit longer for the next one, given Iwata's passing.

There is nothing here...except for the stuff I just typed...

As creepy as it would be, I'd like them to just use puppet Iwata

That would be so incredibly disrepectful. :/

If you add me, I need to at least know you or I won't add you back.

Of course they'll go on. They maybe have a tiny slight chance of changing their name to honor Iwata and his "Directly to you" shtick, but you bet there's going to be info released for fans one way or another throughout the year. It's too successful a method to stop. Whenever they air, they're usually quick to trend on twitter and facebook. It keeps the public aware of Nintendo, even if it's indirectly.

I'd give 2 months before putting up my pitchforks.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

I think they will do one the week before Mario Maker comes out?

wouldn't be surprised to see it dropped. it was Iwata's thing and they would feel as weird and clueless about it as we do now that he has passed on.

Recently, we've been provided with a lot of information. Since this discussion last started, we've had the following:

Additionally, August is nearing it's close. If there is no Direct this month, it will be the first time in Nintendo Direct history when there isn't a Direct in any region for two months in a row, according to wikipedia.

Does this change anyone's opinion? Personally, I now think the company is on hold until they find a new kind of presentation with a different branding.

I'm fine without directs. They didn't have anything important lately.

They won't be the same without the "Hello everybody!"

But I'm eagerly awaiting their return

I always wanted Bill Trinen to make those because is nice and his pronunciation is perfect.

I really don't like the navigation bar of Nintendo Life continuously reappearing while browsing!!

Nintendo is still probably probably working things out since the passing of Iwata-San. I don't want to say "give it another month before you start worrying", but while we have seen NDs work without Iwata, he still played a big part in those, so it'll probably be a while before we start seeing them again IF they decide to continue to do them

That would be great!

I don't enjoy suffering alone. However, I don't mind making others suffer alone.

I got a notification saying someone posted this, but I don't see it here, so I'll just post it:

Well, that debunks this theory! I'm glad to see we'll see more presentations in the future!

It may evolve into something bigger, even.
