Nintendo Conference Supposedly Planned for September
New hardware? A new game? Let’s hope we get a big announcement this September…
Do you remember last September’s Japanese 3DS event? That was the day we learnt about what the 3DS was truly going to be like – with StreetPass and SpotPass named and detailed, a Japanese release date and price announced and of course the reveal of the Virtual Console, the 3DS began to feel like a reality.
And according to the Wall Street Journal, the big N are currently planning a similar event for next month. Apparently, the “Nintendo Conference” has been announced for the 13th September, and is expected to include a big announcement for the 3DS – but what might it be?
Earlier today, we reported on rumours of a 3DS redesign. Now, I was initially very sceptical about this possibility, but could the announcement of a conference, and one taking place in the very near future at that, be a direct response by Nintendo to the rumours? Could we see a big reveal of a brand new 3DS game, or perhaps news on a revolutionary new online service?
One thing’s for sure though – the idea of a conference has done good things for Nintendo as a business. Their share prices have risen almost 10% over the last 24 hours, presumably as a response to both the redesign rumours and the news of the conference.
Full details are not clear yet, so this news should probably be treated as a rumour for now, but should it turn out to be true – what would you like to be announced at the Nintendo Conference?
