A place where welcome news will be announced

Nintendo's presence at this year's Consumer Electronics Show will unfortunately be missed, certainly on the show floor at least. However, that doesn't mean Nintendo is ignoring western gamers' thirst for 3DS details because the company has scheduled two press events to take place in the United States and Europe early next year.

On 19th January, previews will be held in New York City, and Amsterdam to allow media outlets to get some hands-on playtime, with The Big Apple getting a special presentation from Nintendo of America's President Reggie Fils-Aime.

Nintendo Life will be at the Amsterdam event which should be the time and place to finally get pricing and other launch-related details. Will the system be region-locked? What sort of a price-tag and range of launch titles are you hoping for?
