Nintendo says there has been no change in their policy regarding how they reveal information

It has been a couple of months since the last Nintendo Direct – still, that hasn’t stopped Nintendo from releasing information about their upcoming games through other channels. Perhaps most notably, earlier this month, Nintendo revealed the release date and dropped a new trailer of Yoshi’s Crafted World, one of their major first-party games this year, on Twitter. Some people have been wondering whether or not this means that Nintendo might be relying more on social media for publishing big news instead of Nintendo Directs. It seems like this concern is shared by at least one of Nintendo’s investors as well, who posed this question at Nintendo’s latest financial results briefing today. Apparently this concern is unwarranted though, as Nintendo replied that there has been no change in their policy in that regard, and that the investor might have felt that way since it’s been a while since the last Direct.
Note that Nintendo has not yet released the official transcript of the Q&A from that meeting; this info is from a tweet from journalist Takashi Mochizuki, who attented the meeting. As such, it might not be 100% accurate.
