Nintendo works in very mysterious ways. Half the time, fans are lucky if they even get one bit of “hidden” details through interviews with Nintendo employees. It is for this reason that Animal Crossing producer Katsuya Eguchi’s latest words are no surprise. “There are things that I’d like to say but I don’t think I can reveal anything right now,” he said.

Eguchi continued, discussing the possibility of a future DS. “As you know, Nintendo are always working on new hardware and looking to the future. If, say, we were working on a new handheld, one of the things that would happen is that we’d talk to the hardware teams and they’d tell us the sort of things that we’d be able to do in our games, then we can include some of those elements in our software. And conversely it works the other way too. We come up with ideas for things that we’d like to put in a game and say to the hardware people ‘it’d be great if we could do this’. It’s a back and forth relationship.”
