Nintendo Having Yet Another Press Conference (What's Going On?)

Right before this year's Tokyo Game Show, Nintendo suddenly revealed it was having a press conference. It was a total bust. Today, Nintendo suddenly announced it was holding another press conference. Will it be a disappointment, too?

Dubbed "Internet Presentation", the event will be carried over Japanese video site NicoNico Douga and Ustream. Satoru Iwata, Nintendo's president, will give the presentation According to Nintendo, this Friday's press conference will showcase "new Nintendo 3DS news" that it was "impossible" to announce during the pre-TGS event.

During the pre-TGS event, Nintendo did not reveal pricing and a release date for the 3DS Expansion Slide Pad, but snuck that information out via its website.

According to Nintendo, topics at the new conference will include details about the planned November update for the Nintendo 3DS as well as more information about Mario Kart 7 features and functions.

There has to be a surprise or two, especially if this press conference isn't to be another let down. Will Nintendo announce a new 3DS revision? Or will the 3DS get another price cut? Stay tuned, we'll find out Friday.

    "Will it be a disappointment, too?"

    If you're going to blatantly insult someone in a News article, cant it at least be EA?

    Brian Ashcraft really didn't like the last conference, did he? :P Personally I don't see what was so horrible about it.

    Anyway, I'd like to hear more about this update so I'll watch it. We're meant to be getting 3D video recording, right? (maybe I'm imagining that :P)

    They really needed to bring the games last time, and I think they did that. Whats with the hate?

    Whoa, what was so bad about the pre TGS conference?

    whats with all the hate?

    I wonder how many free virtual console games we ambassadors get when the 3DSLite is announced...

    Another price drop, another add-on and new model !
    GOOD ON YA NINTY !

    A new F-Zero game is long overdue don't you think Nintendo?

    we Nintendo would like to remind you that we have made a mistake, many mistakes and we are sorry. first change, we are changing the name of the Wii-U, we understand its not far more worst then the PSVita so we are renaming it the PissOnU instead.

      Two things.
      One, is English your fourth language?
      Two, did you genuinely think this was funny?

    .... All trade ins with 3DS machines towards VITAs will come with a free 3DS Virtual Machine program that will run the 3 3DS games that are worth playing since it's release?

    Also that after a nearly a year of pathetic decisions and empty promises, Nintendo are closing up shop and now making games exclusively for the VITA and Android based machines?

    Just putting it out there.. you all know they should do it... I currently have NO games to play on my 3DS and it has been sitting in a cupboard a week after Zelda was finished.... Which had been sitting in the cupboard since 2 weeks after I got bored with DOA. There would be a lot of dust on that little black piece of broken promise!

    New model with dual analogues as standard. Free 2nd analogue add on for all the suckers sorry early adopters.

    Man, Kotaku readers only read Kotaku, don't they?
    Then again, Kotaku writers only read Kotaku, so the cycle of ignorance continues.

      With the insightful and helpful comments, why would we need to read anything else?

      Did you find something on page 12 of a Reddit post we should be aware of?
