GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Oh, the possibilities...

Uggghhhh...headache all day. Not one of those regular headaches, but the kind that makes your neck hurt as well. It always happens when I don't sleep normally. I was tossing/turning a lot last night, which left me a bit stiff today. I hope I can get back to normal after tonight's shut-eye. See you in a few, short hours!

Looks like there's a major shake-up over at Nintendo. It's funny how Nintendo always seems to sneak out big news without anyone suspecting a thing. We might know that some sort of reveal for a franchise is on the way, but the Big N still manages to hold many of their cards close to their chest. This time around, the surprise was an internal shift instead of a game reveal.

Nintendo is going to bring together their console and portable dev teams. This is the first major restructuring that Nintendo has seen since 2004. Of course, hindsight is 20/20. We all knew that Nintendo was building a new office for themselves, but we never realized that an internal shift was going to be one of the main motivators for the creation of this space.

There's no doubt that Nintendo has been talking about this move for quite some time. They've only just announced it now, but the shift goes into effect this February. It seems like the plan is to have the teams work together in order to birth some connectivity ideas between Wii U and 3DS. This is an idea many of us have been hoping for!

Nintendo has already said that they'd like to allow gamers to play a game on the Wii U and continue on 3DS, or use the 3DS as a Wii U controller in general. If Nintendo is just saying this now, you can bet some ideas are already in the working prototype stage internally. Could we end up seeing some of these ideas unveiled at E3 this year?

What would you like to see Nintendo do with the pairing of the 3DS and Wii U? What's your dream game and scenario? Leave a comment and fill us in!
