What should we expect of a Nintendo Direct? Megatons, subtle updates, comedy, straight-faced detail, important information? The strength of the format, ultimately, is that is can tackle any and all of these approaches, often within the same presentation. The 12th November broadcasts generally did this, especially in the case of Nintendo of America's effort - Nintendo of Europe was far more straight-laced, while NoA had a quirky sketch in which Bill Trinen stuffed his face with donuts. Flexibility is a key strength of the Direct brand.
