Nintendo to show game "everyone is waiting for"

At press conference on Thursday, says net

Speculation around the supposed new Nintendo DS is already ablaze across cyberspace, but now there's another claim on what Nintendo's going to unveil this week; a new game that "everybody is waiting for".

That's according to French site Gamekyo, who says that the platform holder is set to unveil an old franchise reborn.

"We can announce today that Nintendo will reveal a new game for the Wii during this event which is actually an old franchise that everyone is waiting for," the report says.

We contacted Nintendo UK on the report and expectedly, "rumour and speculation" equalled "no comment".

We already know Nintendo is due to properly unveil a third game in Miyamoto's Pikmin game - and Kid Icarus has been heavily rumoured for a comeback - but other than speculation we've no idea what this could be. If it's actually showing anything.

Nintendo's press conference will be held in Japan on October 2. Stay tuned.
