If the Octo Expansion is confirmed for July 13th, it would indeed seem like something might be up for that day. And this is with Taiko no Tatsujin's release date pending (I assume it'll be before Obon, so July 12th would be a potential release date too). If there is a specific hardware-focused initiative, I assume we'll hear more in the Investor Meeting for the upcoming financial results. IIRC, New 2DS XL was announced at last year's meeting for the full FY results.I wonder if something is planned for July 13th.
Last year, 3DS had 3 games releasing on July 13th as well: Hey Pikmin, Ever Oasis and Snack World (this last one was delayed at the end). Some weeks later, Nintendo announced New 2DS XL coming the same date. That’s why it made sense to have all these games packed the same day, for the New 2DS launch.
So, I wonder if we will hear something for Switch.
