    Rich hinted at upcoming Nintendo news before and we got a Nintendo Direct so I trust this guy, but what could it be.

    Localisation of Japanese big games such as bravely default, project X Zone,
    Major OS upgrade, featuring Miiverse
    3DS accounts system
    New IP, new game, Zelda Majora's Mask 3D. =P
    New 3DS lite twin stick
    Or finally Animal crossing New Leaf release date, probably not, got to be more interesting than that.

    We are due a Nintendo Direct, so incoming ND I'll say with 3DS related news.

    No Nintendo direct. That was my prediction. ;) All we know is that very interesting 3DS related news is coming next week sometime.

    Hopefully it'll be better than the stand-alone POS app released on the Wii U.

    It's probably something terribly uneventful that everyone will hype up because that's what they fucking do.

    ERROR!
    Nintendo will never do this for a number of reasons.
    1: They said they would never make a 3DS revision like with the original DS>DSlite, making the old model "obsolete", and no the 3DS XL doesn't count as it's just a larger model sold alongside the standard one, same features, same hardware just like with DSi and DSi XL.
    2: Nintendo won't support it, the CPP is an accessory solely for left handed people and third party games, they will most likely never support it unless it's for left handed controls like in KI:U.
    3: They would be screwing over people with the 3DS and 3DS XL, a new model with two sliders would result in more games that not only supports the CPP but also make the accessory a mandatory item for gameplay. As of now no game requires the CPP in order to play properly (bar MGS3D), RE played perfectly without it using the touchscreen camera controls.
    More frequent CPP software would mean that every current 3DS owner would have to buy a CPP in order to play future 3DS titles properly and the added size would defeat the purpose of the machine being a portable device.
    4: They already had problems with space on the XL, showing the internals of the machine would make it a really hard task to fit in two comfortable standard sized circle pads in the original/XL model, in the case of the XL screen size and battery would have to be sacrificed to accomplish two sliders according to interviews.

    Much as I'd like to see a 3DS upgrade with higher resolution cameras, for example, I'm fairly certain that this will be like every other 'interesting' announcement over the last few months and be nothing truly noteworthy.

    It's not because of a 3DS release with dual-analog that developers would make mandatory the use of CPP for the original 3DS and 3DS XL.
    Resident Evil proves that it's possible to add 2nd analog function, and more than left-handed support, without screwing the gameplay for those who don't have a CPP.

    If we could have a better hardware, with enchancements like 2nd analog, I'd happily sell my 3DS and buy the new XL model.

    Pokemon 6th gen says hi. That was a good hype few weeks ago. It had a lot of hints been thrown out to be honest.

    I agree, unless Nintendo come out and say we are doing a ND or something, there's nothing to get hyped about now. Still curious to know what the 'Very interesting news' are.

    But it had an announced Pokemon Direct. This is just some guy (not even from Nintendo) going "something with the 3DS will be interesting".

    People here are just terrible at hyping things then bitching when their ridiculous expectations aren't met. TWEWY iOS says hi.
