Nintendo has some big news to announce in September. While it's more likely that we'll hear about games like Dragon Quest X and a new Monster Hunter than a complete 3DS redesign (hey, it's still a possibility), rumors are circulating that Nintendo will host a private event in the lead-up to E3.

The company's stock rose sharply today after the news from investors that there would be a special 3DS event in Japan on September 13. Nintendo doesn't take part in TGS (and this year won't be any different), so even the rumor of an announcement from the big N around that time is pretty exciting.
