“The Nikkei newspaper wrote a recent story about a DS solely based upon their own research and speculation, without interviewing Nintendo. While Nintendo is always working on new hardware, we have not made any announcement about a DS and we cannot comment on the Nikkei story.” – Nintendo of America statement
“Nintendo has made no such announcement and will not comment on rumour and speculation.” – Nintendo UK statement
Statements from three different territories have come to light as of now, with Nintendo of Japan’s comments earlier this morning. The general idea that Nintendo seems to be trying to provide is that they simple won’t comment because no announcement has been made. The Nikkei portion of the NOA statement is interesting, however. How reliable is Nekkei’s source considering Nintendo was never approached?
