January Amsterdam Event? What Does Nintendo Have In Mind?

Nintendo has sent certain media outlets an invitation to some sort of event in Amsterdam on January 19, 2011. Considering Nintendo has already said that the 3DS will be released on February 26, 2011 in Japan (and in March elsewhere around the world), what could this mean?

My guess: probably not much more than a European “Nintendo sure is great, isn’t it?” get-together. Nothing wrong with that.

Why would Nintendo release the 3DS several weeks before its already announced release date? Who do they think they are, Sega in the year 1995?

This happy video show several people having a grand ol’ time with their 3DS. Much better than mindless popamole we’re told to venerate these days.
