Nintendo confirms Oct. 2 press conference

Nintendo today confirmed rumors it will hold a fall press conference.

The event is slated for Oct. 2, one week ahead of the Tokyo Game Show. Japan’s Nihon Securities Journal has reported Nintendo will unveil “new products” at the event.

Nintendo is being characteristically tight-lipped about those products, however, saying only that “content and announcements are still being finalized” for the conference.

Nintendo’s showing at the E3 press conference in July was almost universally slammed for being scant and casual-focused. The company has since apologized and seemingly made strides to dispel notions it has abandoned its core audience.

Could this conference be Nintendo’s amends to the core gamer? We’ll know in three weeks.
