Nintendo promises "big game" for Xmas

Reggie's such a tease.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has promised big things from the company at this year's E3 whilst declining to offer any proper information at all.

His comments came in an interview with GameTrailers TV. According to Fils-Aime, Nintendo has something tip top lined-up for Christmas '08: "There's gonna be a big game for the holiday that gamers will want," he stated.

"All I can tell you is what we announce during E3 is gonna be fantastic. The gamer is gonna be excited and the expanded audience is gonna be excited."

So what's so exciting, exactly? Fils-Aime wouldn't say, but at another point in the interview he did confirm that the titles Nintendo releases after E3 will be "maximising all of our key franchises". DKC please, you can keep stupid old Banjo.
