Nintendo’s at it again with another out-of-the-blue press conference to be streamed via their Nintendo Direct website at 8 AM CST on Feb. 22nd.
The last North American Nintendo Direct conference was held on Oct. 21, 2011 and did little more than discuss Hulu Plus, the 3DS fall firmware update, and Super Mario 3D Land. Rumours regarding the upcoming conference are naturally flying around, though. Some favourite things that people are hoping for include the announcement of a 3DS with two circle pads built-in, a name change and/or more launch info for the Wii U (any news regarding the Wii U, really), and release date details for upcoming games that are currently floating about without them like Paper Mario 3DS, Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Dragon Quest X. Here’s hoping that we’ll at least get some of that, but I think it will be something more along the lines of a new trailer for Mario Tennis 3DS and then an interview with some member of the team that made the upcoming Kid Icarus: Uprising game. Time will tell, and then we’ll tell you, so stay tuned for more info when the press conference goes live tomorrow.
