Various rumours are circulating suggesting that Nintendo are planning to change the name of the Facebook pages for their handheld 3DS console and their Wii U home console.

“Nintendo Handheld Gaming” is the name replacement for the 3DS Facebook page, and “Nintendo Console Gaming” is the name replacement for the Wii U Facebook page. Nintendo are yet to confirm or deny the rumour but various “fans” of the 3DS and Wii U Facebook pages have been receiving notifications of the change.

When Facebook pages change their names, everyone who’s a “fan” of that page receive a notification of the change. Though no changes have happened yet various NeoGAF members as myself have received the notification email. The email states that the name change for the 3DS page will take place on the 19th of September just in time for the launch of the 2DS meaning that everything handheld by Nintendo will be all under one roof. Presumably the same goes for the Wii U page meaning that everything Wii and Wii U will be filtered under that page also.
