Instead of dat Cranky Kong troll move?

Blast the lame VGX show all you want but I guarantee you more people tune into that then some obscure Nintendo Direct announcement. I bet the majority of people out there have no idea this new Zelda game is in the works still or exists


BUT DAT CRANKY KONG THO'!

Yeah, the announcement would have made more sense for the target audience than Cranky Kong.

If there was anything they should have showed at VGX, it would have been new Bayonetta 2 footage or something.

It wouldn't have been a good choice honestly. The game is far and away from the quality of games showed at the VGX. It just looked so unpolished given its current build that putting it up against even the indie trailers would have just made it look terrible.
I think the launch of other video game systems is also good for us - Iwata of Nintendo
the playstation 2 sure helped dreamcast - magemaximus

They didn't have to show the trailer or even specifically announce the game. Just Reggie doing the Cranky Kong reveal and then saying "We are also delighted to announce that as well as our own Zelda game for Wii U, we are partnering with a major third-party to release a Wii U-exclusive game based in the Zelda universe in 2014 - we'll have more details on that, and a first glance, in an upcoming Nintendo Direct".

That gives them all the benefit of the Cranky reveal (approximately zero), teases Hyrule Warriors without giving away what it is, teases the new Nintendo Direct in front of an audience that in large parts might not have heard of Nintendo Direct, and acts as a reminder that there's a new Zelda game on the way as well.

People underestimate the popularity of DKC games, they really do.

VGX was only watched by 1 million people world wide, all regional combined Nintendo's Direct's regularly have 2 to 3 million people... lol
You are not a core gamer if restricted to handhelds/consoles from one company thus limiting amount of games, further by genre's and graphical style of the game.

cause they already had cranky planned for a while.

That would have been better for the VGX presentation, but I imagine the hype by the dedicated Nintendo fans would have run rampant with the wild possibilities at such a game, only to be dashed upon the rocks when it was revealed it was a DW game.
