This poll is now closed.
January was the first month since August 2012 that none of the 3 major regions (United States, Japan, Europe) had ANY kind of Direct.

It's been 55 days now...Usually by this time we would've had at least a few regional Directs or Direct-mini's.

So, do you believe Nintendo has cancelled Directs, perhaps because they think they just preach to the choir?

No.

Why on earth would they? They're not expensive to produce.

They did have a regional direct in January by the way, a South Korean one. So they didn't even skip a month if you count that region.

People are just being impatient.

Nah, they're just waiting till the right time. Today (the 11th) was a national holiday in Japan, so that's likely why they didn't announce one. I wouldn't be surprised to see it on Valentine's Day cause Ninty loooooooves uuuuusssss.
If you believe in Jesus Christ and are 100% proud of it, put this in your sig.

People are wrong to feel the way they do. Nintendo is perfect.

Are worldwide Directs always announced at around 6:00 am PST 24 hours before airing?

Damn, how impatient are you people? Are you constipated and can only let it out until the next Direct happens?

Yeah, for the most part. I'm sure there's been a couple of exceptions, but that's usually the case. Hopefully we wake up to an announcement tomorrow, but I don't expect it until Thursday (or maybe next week, if they want to have a last second DK hype section).

I doubt we'll have a Direct on Friday morning of this week, since that would mean late Friday night or Saturday in Japan, and Nintendo likely wants to release its news on a work day when more journalists are writing.
