According to French site, Gamekyo, Nintendo will show off a game that, quote, “everyone is waiting for”:

“We can announce today that Nintendo will reveal a new game for the Wii during this event which is actually an old franchise that everyone is waiting for,” the report says.

Nintendo UK quickly responded to the report saying: “rumour and speculation” equalled “no comment”.

Could it be the fabled return of the Kid Icarus franchise?? Or could this be an announcement for a new Zelda or Mario game?  And with the rumors of the new Nintendo DS, Thursday might bring us some very exciting news indeed.
