Note: The last image (Twitter) is referencing this NX speculation thread on GAF. It's not even a Nintendo thread, it's NLG and NX.

It's entirely possible that he's straight up trolling but I think the title is accurate. Mods can change it if they disagree.

Not sure if this is thread worthy, so I'll post it here:

Kevin Periera (host of Attack of the Show and the recent Nintendo World Championships) tweeted:

Anaheim. Nintendo. GameStop. Let's get cozy.

For those that don't know, the Gamestop Expo starts this Wednesday.

If you look at his SnapChat (AttackSnap), in one of his story snaps he quickly turns the phone camera away from a television screen, saying "you weren't suppose to see that". He also mentions in another snap that he is rehearsing for something Nintendo-related at the expo.
what the what?

NX?

Really?

No.

This is how publishers push their fall lineup on gamestop's managers to drive up preorder numbers. Games or systems do not get announced here.


Nintendo probably just hired him to present - they hired him to do the nintendo world championships last year.

It's just going to be about the upcoming amiibos, The Mini NES, and maybe some new N3DS designs exclusive to GameStop. NX is not happening in September.

Here are some great 3DS games you can expect to buy this year and early next!

Retail exclusive most likely - amiibo, perhaps a peripheral to Super Mario Run, etc - but almost certainly not a console announcement.

The title shouldn't have had NX in it. Not only he could be trolling with some of his tweets, but there's nothing at all indicating "NX" anywhere. Just that it's Nintendo-related for sure. Nothing else.

he could be doing this for a whole host of other reasons other than NX

"We're interpreting that Kevin Pereira is teasing a Nintendo NX announcement"

The last image from his Twitter directly references an NX thread.
The post he was linked to doesn't actually mention the NX.

That said, it's 100% NX confirmed y'all.

Nintendo wouldn't just drop an NX reveal with absolutely no warning at a GameStop expo.

Guys, be reasonable.

I can almost feel the rage when it's just a 40 minute presentation of new Mario Party minigames and Color Splash food animations and shit before the gamestop employees get their hands-on with the fall line-up.

I mean, who fucking knows at this point
