Jeux-France has heard a rumor about Nintendo’s offering at
mini-E307. Text translation below:
According to rumours which appear credible to us, Nintendo would have already planned since a few weeks what will be presented at the time of its conference of E3 2007 at the United States, which will take place the morning of next 11 July. Several important advertisements should be made. In addition to the advertisement of new dates of exit (Super Bros Smash. Brawl and Super Mario Galaxy in particular), Mario Kart Wii should be revealed, as well as a ‘large revelation on the Hardware level‘. Let us point out that they are for the moment simple rumours, anything official.
Hardware? My guess is that they could revive the Gameboy tier of their 3 tier strategy. The last true Gameboy was the GBA in 2001. Nintendo said that the DS was not a replacement for the Gameboy. I wouldn’t mind if Nintendo made something traditional for the Hardcore gamers. Compared to the Wii and DS, which recently have been focused on the non-gamers, anything for the Hardcore gamers would be a good thing.
