It looks like Nintendo's head honcho, Satoru Iwata, will be hosting a pre-recorded press conference this Friday that you, dear reader, can watch from the comfort of your Sumo bean-bag or what have you. The conference, or the "Nintendo 3DS New Information Internet Presentation" if you're not into the whole brevity thing, will be streaming over on Ustream and Nico Nico Douga, and it looks like there'll be a few announcements regarding Mario Kart 7 and an impending 3DS firmware update. Beyond that, your guess is as good as ours. We're still holding out hope on a few of our speculative 3DS redesigns.

Check back at this link come Friday, 20:00 JST, for links to streaming videos.
