*RUMOR* Nintendo to hold event just for Wii

GN 1.0 / 2.0

The attack on the senses known as Comic-Con has come and gone, and with it has come some new information. The gang over at Nintendo Now was present at the show, and managed to check out Nintendo’s booth and all the goodies inside. While there, they talked to a “source (who) wished to remain unnamed” that gave up some Nintendo tidbits that we will take as rumor for now.

First off, the source confirmed once again what we have heard before. Nintendo will be present at the Leipzig Game Convention which takes place later in August, and once again we are hearing that Nintendo will be showing off some new Wii goodies. What exactly we are in store for is unsure, but as long as it is Wii related we will take it!

The source also did a fine job of fanning the Spaceworld rumor flames by stating that Nintendo is planning an event to show off the Wii in a big way, one last time before launch. With the price point/launch date info release still looming over our heads, everyone is trying to figure out just when Nintendo plans to do this. A special event to showcase the Wii isn’t out of the question…but having not heard of any SpaceWorld event just yet makes it hard to imagine one taking place.

Finally the source covered his ass by saying that “his information was not definite”. Of course it isn’t, if it where, then we wouldn’t have all these juicy rumors to report! Who wants to be bothered with facts anyway?! In all seriousness, much of what was said is possible…and I guess we will see what comes true via the LGC later in August.
