RUMOR - Tomorrow's Nintendo Direct to include 3DS hardware announcements

Again, all of this is 100% rumor. We'll know what's real and what's fake in less than 24 hours.

– Fire Emblem is projected to show up around January in the US with the Japanese Blue Special Edition to go on sale with it.

– Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon will come out in February. At the same time the Black 3DS XL will also come out and there will be a Black 3DS XL Dark Moon version with the game bundled in.

– Animal Crossing planned as a Spring/Summer Title between March and May.

– Most of the Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL colors, including 3DS XL Purple, will be out in America by the end of 2013.

– A few eShop first party @ 3rd party Wii U titles will be announced for the launch window and a good mix of first and third party for spring which ends at the Nintendo E3 show for the rest of 2013.

– No idea if the Pokemon 3DS XL’s are coming, even though NoA wants them to for Mystery Dungeon that is all up to the Pokemon Company USA to decide.

Well the stuff is plausible. Of course this is in no way a confirmation, but you never know what'll happen and it is being treated like a bigger event this time.

Fingers crossed for Pokégoods, at least!

I'd expect there to just be news about TVii, acouple release dates for WiiU launch window, and maybe acouple 3DS release dates (I actually believe that note about Luigi's Mansion 2 and the black XL)

I've been considering upgrading to an XL, I'm interested in both Dark Moon and Fire Emblem so it'd be awesome if either were true!

New Leaf will be so far away if true. Is it the translations? The special cartridges? If it's the cartridges, then release the digital version (even though I want the physical version) already. But I guess that would create different sorts of issues...

Also, I wish I knew whether or not we'll be getting the Animal Crossing 3DS XL before Fire Emblem arrives. I'd probably get that over the Fire Emblem 3DS...

What about Nintendo TVii? If it launches in Japan on the 8th shouldn't we get word on it. Heck, last I remember it was a U.S idea in the first place!

Please :( don't report this *terribleness*. Have you seen their article on "3DS+ specs" ? This reeks attention seeking fake. A 3DS with dual, clickable sticks ? Talk about splitting the userbase. 2 cameras on front and back ? And tracking the stylus with LED ? WTH ? Do they know anything about computer vision ? They have the same "source" for both articles. Please RMC. I know this has been marked as "RUMOR", but since it's the same source as the terrible "3DS+" article, it should be marked as "RANDOM BS".

Nintendo's Facebook said that it would be about already announced 3DS games. I doubt they will have anything new...

If that 3DS XL purple thing is true, I'm gonna be mad. JUST got a purple 3DS. I KINDA want a purple XL if its true...

If Luigi's Mansion 2 does indeed come out before Animal Crossing: New Leaf, then I am going to slap Luigi.

AC, Fire Emblem, and Luigis Mansion. Not a bad way to start the year off. But wait, WERE GONNA DIE ON THE 21ST!

Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon, that's the only game I want to know more about right now.

If things were to go my way, I'd want the Pikachu/Charizard 3DS XL to come out in the Summer of 2013, when i have money, so i can get it right away! :D

It's all plausible, but given the source, I'm not believing it until I see it.

I still want a Majora's Mask announcement or SOMETHING that says that they are planning to make it... :(

Still just want the white XL, but I'd settle for a limited edition Luigi's Mansion one. All I want out of this ND is dates for Luigi and Animal Crossing and new XL colors so I can finally buy one..

No, do not put out Luigi's Mansion 2 before Animal Crossing.

Nothing against Luigi's Mansion, it's just that it was announced an entire year after Animal Crossing. Animal Crossing has already come out in Japan. April or May would be a 6-7 month delay from Japan. Animal Crossing needs to come out sooner than that. January or February.

I don't care about the 3DS redesigns. Just give us the games Nintendo! Fire Emblem! Luigi's Mansion! Animal Crossing!

Seems suspicious. The one month's notice for Fire Emblem would be a dead giveaway if NoA wasn't so flippant about the series.

In regards to fire emblem, you should see what happens in Europe.
