    Nintendo put on an impressive show in mid September at the Nintendo Conference press event. But apparently they have even more to show.
    The company announced today that it will hold the "Nintendo 3DS New Information Internet Presentation" on Friday (October 21). This pre-recorded presentation, hosted by CEO Satoru Iwata, will cover details that could not be covered during the September event.
    As an example of what to expect from the event, Nintendo mentioned details on the 3DS system's November firmware update and Mario Kart 7's wireless play support.
    The presentation will be held at 20:00 and will be broadcast at Ustream and Nico Nico Video. See Nintendo's page for links when the time comes.

    Won't have much in terms to the september conference. It's somewhat major as they are streaming it, so they probably talk about what's new in the next firmware and hopefully some good improvements to the 3DS.

    I'm curious to find out if the video recorder will support playing external files like the camera app does. But want --

    * Update to street pass quest, including more hats and a way to take a photo of your Mii wearing a hat.
    * More street pass jigsaw puzzles
    * SOME actual 3DSware, stop pushing DSiware on 3DS owners
    * Info on the availability of 3D movies, either on carts or via download.

    What I think is really bizarre:
    • Shared online system with Wii U, friends codes will be ported to one common identity
    Otherwise:
    • 3DS game demos
    • 3D videos
    • Chat feature
    • More on DLC

    "Bizarre" means "extremely weird". I don't think any of the things on the list are weird. Did you mean "likely" or "probable"?

    The friend code merge IMO is extremely weird and unlikely.

    I hope the word "DLC" is not something I see on the 3ds, we get enough greedy developers locking out content so that they can charge you extra for stuff that should be on the cartridge already, I will be really disappointed if this greedy practice rears it's ugly head on the Wii U too, it's really tiresome on the ps3.

    If they want to impress me, they better add youtube or something like that, especially since youtube support 3D videos, adding 3D video upload to youtube would be an amazing feature.

    But it's Nintendo... :(

    The only updates I really care about are:
    • 3DS Retail Game Demos
    • Video Camera
    • 3D Movies
    That's all I really want right now from the next update

    If we don't see DLC on the 3ds and wii u, they'll be left out of content the other systems have.

    However it doesn't matter to me anymore. Nintendo already lost me as a wii u costumer because of no achievement system. Any non-exclusives I won't buy for their 3BS, I'll get them for the Vita or ps3.

    I'm not a fan boy either. I have a wii, it's collecting dust. My 360 was collecting dust after i got my ps3 til i gave gears 3 a shot. Now I'll get 360 exclusives but all others on the ps3. I don't want to pay for online every month. Once i had enough gears, i can stop paying for gold and hop back on my ps3.

    My older games, I used to trade in or sale on ebay, til the achievement systems of the 360 and ps3 gave them new light. They gave myslef enough extra stuff to aim for and want to complete. The wii u lacks this or any real extra special thing and the original wii leaves me of distrust of ninendo's 1st and 2nd party games.

    I'm predicting just the new update, and a few small features on some upcoming games (So basically what they said...) I'm not expecting much but I'll watch it.

    I'm thinking the update will just have video recording, new Streetpass stuff and system stability. Hopefully we'll get a video chat app, or atleast a messaging system.
