That’s right, Nintendo fans! It’s time to start up those hype engines. I think there’s good reason to rev ’em up, too.
Last month, the Official Nintendo Magazine teased a big reveal for its next issue. Typically, details were scarce, but the publication promised it had “something very special lined up” and that readers should keep their collective eyes peeled for the March 12 release date.
Now, Nintendo of America has officially invited select members of the press to its Q1 Media Summit event, set to kick off February 24 in San Francisco. “Please join us for a full day of presentations, demos and hands-on gameplay,” the invite reads.
For your consideration, some big Nintendo games on the horizon include Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid: Other M, and the next Legend of Zelda offering. We’d be surprised if the Big N spoiled the Zelda surprise before the Electronic Entertainment Expo, but we would not be at all shocked if Mario or Samus made an appearance at the event, particularly given both titles are more likely to be released this year than Link’s next. Also, Nintendo recently updated the official Metroid website with a new focus on Other M.
