Nintendo will host a 3DS-focused media event in Tokyo on September 13, Bloomberg Japan reports. That's two days before the start of the Tokyo Game Show, which Nintendo typically does not attend officially. The Nintendo event will not let consumers in, but will be open to investors and analysts.

Nintendo customarily has a fall event every year, like last year's "Nintendo Conference," in which new games are unveiled and plans for upcoming hardware are detailed. It would be easy to use this new event as evidence that Nintendo really is planning to announce that crazy stuff that's been rumored, but really, all we have is a rumor and a press event that happen to come up around the same time. It's safe to expect new game announcements, but it's still a stretch to think we'll see new hardware. Not impossible, but a stretch.
