Also, Nintendo's strategy of scattering announcements throught the year is good when you have a lot to show. When you don't [have], that makes each announcement less impactful.
Kind of a silly notion. Here are the things they announced or shown first footage of at the Directs so far this year.
The World Ends With You
Hyrule Warriors DX
Mario Tennis Aces
No More Heroes
Daemon x Machina
Dragon Ball Fighter Z
Pokemon Lets Go
They have had a bunch to show this year and have more in upcoming Directs.
