Once beloved Satoru Iwata passed away, many believed that Nintendo Directs were no longer going to continue. However, the company has stated that Nintendo Directs will still be a format for fans to access the latest information on upcoming games and systems from Nintendo.
This news was given to IGN, shortly after the announcing of Tatsumi Kimishima as the next president of Nintendo. However, it’s unknown if Tatsumi will be the presenter for Nintendo Directs like Iwata once was, or if another employee such as Reggie Fils-Aime or Shigeru Miyamoto will be the new placeholder for Iwata in future Nintendo Directs.
Nintendo has failed to say whether Tatsumi will take place or not. Usually Nintendo Directs happen multiple times a year for fans to keep up with upcoming games being released. However, we haven’t received a Nintendo Direct on the latest released games from Nintendo such as Super Mario Maker.
