Earlier today, we received an official confirmation that Nintendo will be having a conference next month in Europe. However, word on the street is that a North American event will take place on the same day. The Escapist Magazine is reporting that Nintendo has issued for a conference in New York City. The 19th may very well be Nintendo’s day to announce 3DS launch information for overseas territories.

Last night’s rumor regarding a possible Nintendo conference in Europe next month has been confirmed. The company has been sending out invitations to the press for the January 19 event in Amsterdam. As expected, it seems that Nintendo will be revealing the launch date and price of the system, in addition to other information. We only know of one conference next month at the moment, but I’d be shocked if something didn’t happen in North America as well.

Thanks to Pablo and Guillaume for the tip!

Although the Twitter message above pertains to France, it goes along nicely with another rumor we heard. IGN’s Rich George indicated last week that we would be seeing “a flood of information” about the 3DS in late January. The 19th is fairly late in January, so if this latest tease is the real deal, it’s very likely that Nintendo will be sharing 3DS launch information and other details about the system.

Here’s a rough translation of the Twitter post above…

“Nintendo France has a mysterious teaser press event in Amsterdam on January 19 … 3DS? Other?”

A few of you might be very interested in Mighty Milky Way. Why, you ask? Well, the game is being developed by WayForward! You can check out a description of the DSiWare title below:

“This is an action-puzzle game in which players help a green-skinned alien navigate toward warp portal exits. Players avoid hazards (e.g., pink puff balls, electric barriers) and create planets to use as jumping platforms. At the end of each level, players must dodge laser beams shot from a robotic T-Rex; the dinosaur sinks off-screen amid small explosions when defeated.”
