Yesterday RipTen reported on a rumor that Nintendo would be holding a press event in Amsterdam on January the 19th to discuss the Nintendo 3DS launch information in detail.  Today another rumor has sprung up that says Nintendo of America is planning on having a similar media event on January 19th in New York City.

The various rumored media events to be taking place around the world seem like the perfect time to announce launch information about the Nintendo 3DS.  The highly anticipated handheld is currently scheduled to release in Japan in February 2011, and North America and Europe sometime in March 2011.  Nintendo may also use this time to announce some upcoming Wii games since not much is known about their 2011 offerings.
