Nintendo to announce October 3DS release date today?

Firm to unveil surprising early launch at E3, says source

Remember when we told you that Nintendo was set to unveil an October release date for its 3DS? We've been told that the platform holder plans to make the big reveal today at E3.

Nintendo's E3 conference is due to kick off in under eight hours - which will be early morning in LA.

As well as 3DS, we're hopeful of seeing a Zelda Wii game and perhaps even a new Donkey Kong.

The 3DS will bring gamers 3D play on a portable system for the first time - and Nintendo promises that it will be a glasses-free experience.
