Rumors are making their way around the internet that Nintendo is planning a press conference on September 13, a few days before the Tokyo Game Show. People are speculating that the Big N will make myriad announcements pertaining to the 3DS. These rumors include the switch of focus of the 3DS away from 3D, a name change for the 3DS, and a complete redesign of the 3DS with an added circle pad. These rumors have lead to a 8.4% price increase of Nintendo’s stock.
These rumors hit every section of the possibility scale, with the focus change away from 3D being fairly likely, a name change sitting at somewhat unlikely, and the redesign rumor being completely insane. However; it is likely that this event will occur and that important announcements will be made, seeing as the stock price had an impressive increase.
