Shigeki Morimoto hosted Nintendo’s recent surprise Nintendo Direct, and with Satoru Iwata’s health the last couple of years, some Japanese fans have gotten it into their heads that Iwata will be stepping down as Nintendo Direct’s host. Rest assured, despite the rumors, Iwata has every intention of sticking around, though he plans on letting others take the reigns every now and then. In his own words, “This 55-year-old guy won’t be presenting all the time, but will appear in the future” (as translated by Twitter-user Cheesmeister).

Our Verdict


Stefan Terry
One of my earliest memories with games was just after Pokémon had come out in the states for the first time. I remember, after having watched the show for a couple weeks, stumbling across a friend with an original Gameboy playing Pokémon Red version using a Weedle. When he told me he was playing Pokémon, I told him I didn't know there was a Pokémon that had a pumpkin for a head. Boy games have come a long way. Speaking of games, I also contribute to making them somewhat professionally, and ocassionaly write about them. You should see some of that games writing stuff, I hear it's real popular with the kids these days.
