Nintendo Announces Another 3DS Press Conference

Nintendo has announced that they will stream (by way of Ustream and Nico Nico LIVE) a Nintendo 3DS specific press conference on October 21st at 8pm. That’s October 21st at 7am if you live on the east coast of the States.

The details are absolutely baren at this point regarding what Nintendo will be presenting during the show. We know that Satoru Iwata, the company’s President, will be leading a Nintendo 3DS presentation. The information within regards things that were impossible to announce during their pre-Tokyo Game Show conference in August.

And, that’s it. We don’t know if this will be software focused, hardware focused or both. It stands to reason that Nintendo will take the stage to talk about recent 3DS sales in Japan (which have seen a lot of life since the price cut in early August), or, perhaps, the firmware update the system is set to receive in November.

Let’s play a game … What would you absolutely love to see Nintendo’s President step out onto the stage and announce?

Personally, even more games. Nintendo saved the best of the 3DS catalogue until this holiday. In the next few months, we’ll be seeing two games from their most stable franchises: Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7. We’ve also got Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Icarus down the pipe. However, I’d like Nintendo to roll out even more content. Let’s see that new Smash Bros. title specific to the 3DS. Or, how about yet another portable Zelda adventure?

To this point, the largest complaint from fans and critics regarding the 3DS is the absence of quality software. Users either love the 3D effect or they hate it, but it’s the software selection that seems to be the most hit upon problem.

How about you? What would your dream announcement be?
