Earlier today, Nintendo of America and Nintendo NYC tweeted two cryptic images which fans felt to be taunting them for their anticipation on the next Nintendo Direct.
The first was Chibi-Robo on fire and the second was a Mii wearing a hotdog costume from Tomodachi Life.

A Twitter user by the name of gravitytheghost may have figured out the secret behind both tweets. A Direct for Chibi-Robo Zip Lash went live without any prior announcement, and so did a Tomodachi Life Direct a few years ago.
Perhaps Nintendo is trying to tell us that the next Nintendo Direct will come out of nowhere, so we shall wait and see what happens next!
