RUMORED Nintendo Press Conference

Axle the BeastDecember 20th, 2010 by Axle the Beast

The pictured tweet, if Google Translate can be considered reliable, translates to:

Nintendo France has a mysterious teaser press event in Amsterdam on January 19 … 3DS? Other?

It’s a tiny message on Twitter, but it’s interesting even if it’s just a rumor. If it turns out to be true, what might Nintendo talk about there and why are they holding this press event? This may or may not have relation to Skyward Sword or Ocarina of Time 3DS. Even if it’s general Nintendo news, it could have implications related to Zelda so one way or another this could be good… if it’s true of course.

This is somewhat exciting for me, as it could imply very cool news. Just to Zelda fans or even to the general Nintendo fan, this is an interesting prospect. And what could a date so early in the year mean? Especially intriguing when you consider the Zelda titles supposedly going to be released early in 2011. At the same time I’m incredibly skeptical. It doesn’t seem like this is coming from a source that is any kind of authority. At the same time, it’s something of a bold and oddly specific statement, so who knows?

What do you think? How believable is this rumor? What are your thoughts? And if you believe it, what do you think it could mean; why are they holding this conference? Post about it in the comments!

    I hope its Majora's Mask 3DS. That would be awesome.

    • Bob

      I don't think Majora's Mask 3D will happen. Mainly because the save system wouldn't work that well for on-the-go gamers because you can't just save it whenever you like. You have to mess about trying to find Keabora Geabora statues ot travel back to day one.

      • MrPillow

        Not really, you just warp to the nearest one and save. it takes like 20 secondes. Maybe not even

      • april

        they could change the saving system, but probably not

  • DutchWim

    Amsterdam is in the Netherlands. Why would Nintendo France go to holland for their mysterious event, and Nintendo Benelux (Nintendo Holland,Belgium Luxembourg) stay silent? Doesn't make sense and is highly likely to be fake.

    I think it's fake

      Nintendo is also holding a press conference on the 19th stateside as well, and one in the UK. Seems like world wide event.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/Thareous Thareous

    If anything, I want more info on Skyward Sword, and maybe even a trailer.

    • Bob

      At the moment I'd rather have more information on Skyward Sword too, because as far as release dates go we already know that the 3DS will arive in the US in March next year, so I'd rather get a concrete Skyward Sword release date.

  • SkywardSword

    January is going to be a big month for the 3DS. There is nintendo world in Japan, That press conference going on in Amsterdam and the Nintendo 3DS media-only event in New York City on January 19th (its been confirmed).

    Any of these "must" have something to do with skyward sword (NEW, NOT THAT DEMO AREA)

    Well, it is Nintendo Europe and French is one of the major European languages (bested by English and maybe German), so it makes sense the announcement could be made in French for Europe-wide. Plus, the conformation of events elsewhere (Japan, and US) makes it seem legit. Here's hoping for a Jan, Feb release date for SS!

    • DutchWim

      As a european. I can guarantee you, Nintendo Europe would make it's statements in English. Even it's Germany based Head Office is 100% English.

      If it's true that it's held in the Netherlands. You can bet your butt it's in English. Most Dutch people speak english well.

  • Doh'blin

    This is french? I dont' know enough to translate it myself (I'm still just a student…), but I know that Google translate usually messes up the grammar and stack of word, but even though it got the words mostly correctly translated. So it seems correct, but could still be fake.

  • Cit

    Well, google translate isn't really reliable but the translation to the text is ok. I dont speak french but I speak portuguese and they are very similar. I think it can actualy be something about the 3ds, as it will be launched around march, maybe they will reveal the oficial release date.

    so there it has been confirmed by the Official People , your welcome

    • DutchWim

      Thanks. I Hope I can get there (it's not that for for me). But they don't mention where in Amsterdam, and if it's closed, open. it does remind me of the original Nintendo DS unveiling in Scheveningen (Also in the Netherlands)

  • Bob

    I don't think we'll see it until late 2011, but you can never be sure.

  • Daniel

    The event is going to be in New York, it's going to be about the Nintendo 3DS. The official Nintendo magazine in Mexico published it on Twitter. The twitter account is @tono_rodriguez

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this 1. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is really a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
