Okay!

Second, they will revive and host the Nintendo World Championships, from over 25 years ago. These will be hosted at select Best Buy retailers, with further details to come. (Siliconera)

A partial list of the planned events:

*Sunday, June 14th Nintendo World Championships 2015
*Tuesday, June 16th Nintendo Digital Event (9 am PST)
*Mario Maker demo at Best Buy June 17th (4 pm 9 pm)
*Mario Maker demo at Best Buy June 20th (noon 5 pm)

During a latest financial results briefing, Iwata was asked at one point on the status of region locking on the unannounced "NX". Iwata then answered that he would take it into account, and are open to the idea of not including it in their successor. (Nintendo of Japan)

Quote:
When you were asked if you would lift the region locks at the Financial Results Briefing six months ago, you answered that you would take it into consideration. Please explain the current situation.

Iwata: My understanding is that it is not realistic on the existing video game systems because unlocking them after they are already on the market poses a number of hurdles. On the other hand, regarding NX, we understand that many consumers hold such opinions and such suggestions exist in the market, and although we have nothing concrete at the moment, we are internally analyzing what hurdles exist to lifting region locks. That is the situation right now. We acknowledge your request, and I personally want to give it positive consideration.

That is a fantastic deal. I picked it up even owning a couple of the games already.

OlliOlli on 3DS is really great to have as a portable title, and Guacamelee is a ton of fun.

If Project Treasure is done well, that's my kind of game. I'm really enjoying co-op on Bloodborne and I get a similar vibe.

Star Fox Zero delayed until Q1 2016. The game did look like it needed a bit more work from the E3 presentation.

I thought that A Link Between Worlds was supposed to be on this list?

Still great news, I have not played Super Mario 3d World yet.
