Talking Point: Time to Adjust Nintendo Direct Expectations

It's easy to lose track of time in the helter-skelter video game industry, with games and exciting new projects that are merely months old already being rather old-hat. We want the latest, hottest new games and announcements ten minutes ago, so stop telling us about old stuff, ok?

For Nintendo gamers, the frustration in satisfying these cravings for news was sometimes hard to avoid in past-times, as the company itself would remain tight-lipped outside of the occasional press release or appearance at a major event. Yet Nintendo Direct has changed that, to an extent, with regular broadcasts full of information.

After the muted response to the latest Nintendo Direct, Nintendo Life considers whether expectations need to be put in check. (3DS, Industry, Nintendo, Wii U)
