At this point they should just set up a camera in Iwata's office and have a 24-hour ongoing livestream.

Cool. It's great to have Nintendo Directs that are focused on single games or concepts. Instead of a Game of All Trades type of "main" Nintendo Directs...

Details tend to get lost with the bigger ones. These smaller ones are great for people who really want to know more about game specifics.

They should just announce when they aren't doing Nintendo Directs, and watch us all hype the shit out of that.

"Nintendo announces that for the first time in three weeks, there won't be a Nintendo Direct this evening."

He's basically just reading a script now that they've brought in the Andross head, isn't he? He can probably knock 'em off in his lunch break.
