Nintendo's Surprise Announcement: What Could It Be?

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Sony releases PlayStation Vita across the U.S. and Europe February 22 (wow, that's tomorrow), and Nintendo hopes to spoil the launch with some news of its own.

Price cut: I really don't think Nintendo would use the 3DS as a medium to announce a 3DS price cut, this is for us who already bought one.

Release dates: Possible, but unless they are coming out this or next month I don't see how this could have any effect on us 3DS owners looking to get a Vita to.

Hope it's something unexpected. A new Pokemon/Mario/Zelda announcement would be boring to me.
Based on Nintendo's recent endeavour I'm betting on the announcement of Super Mario 64 DS 3D, the same game you played already on the DS, but in 3D. It will sell truckloads...

Arnagrim2527d ago

Though if they do a Super Mario 3D Land thing with Super Mario World I will throw large amounts of money at Nintendo.

GameTavern2527d ago

Yeah because all of the safe announcements they've made at these things like Pushmo, FreakyForms, Swapnotes, Kiki Trick.. were sequels to their popular games...

Arnagrim2527d ago

Because those are core titles right?

GameTavern2527d ago

I loathe the distinction personally.

They are new and creative titles. If they don't fit your definition of "core" titles I'm sorry.

But I don't buy or get interested in a game because it meets some checklist to make me seem cool.

A redesign! It's the best way for Nintendo to tip the scale in their favor for those who hasn't decided which handheld to get.

Dovahkiin2527d ago

That's what I'm hoping for, if so I'll buy it.

At the moment I want to buy a 3DS but it's undoubtedly more sensible to wait for the next model with 2 sticks + whatever else they feel like adding.

Instigator2527d ago

I'm also waiting for a redesign. Sure, Nintendo has said it's not happening, but a brief look at their handheld history and you'll see that making new ones is one of their favourite pastimes.

2 sticks
better backlight
longer batter life

That's all I need

I wouldn't mind more viewing angles/more reliable 3D too. I get a lot of ghosting in Ocarina of Time when there's high contrast, Mario hasn't had much of an issue with its vibrant colors. But yeah, there isn't anything totally major I want to see in a revision.

3DS price cut to $149.99 during Vita release week.

If they do a redesign, they had better damn well offer early adopters a freebie add-on stick.

Why do the % add up to way more than 100, by the way? The art of addition and statistics not mastered over at MoDojo? Do they think there will be multiple announcements at once, maybe?
