Though it once again won’t have a major presence at Tokyo Game Show next month, Nintendo will hold its own pre-TGS 3DS trade show, dubbed “Nintendo Conference”, on September 13 that will be “open to industry people, analysts, investors and journalists, but not to consumers.”
There’s also some crazy speculation of a 2012 hardware revision for the Nintendo 3DS that “radically tone[s] down” the system’s 3D aspect, and an accessory that adds a second analog stick to the right side of the portable. Both ideas sound preposterous, in my opinion, but not totally impossible. I’m very skeptical about these reports!
I much prefer the gossip that Nintendo will make a huge game announcement at this conference — maybe Dragon Quest X for a dual Wii/3DS release? Or a new Pokemon?
Or if you believe these somewhat credible rumors, Capcom will unveil Monster Hunter Tri G for 3DS (and Monster Hunter 3rd P HD for Vita), Square Enix will bring out a 3DS sequel for Final Fantasy: The Warriors of Light 2, and Dragon Quest X will be an MMO title.
