Nintendo comments on new DS rumors

Posted on 10 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in DS, News | 1 Comment | 0 Likes

Details regarding a new DS were leaked over the weekend, but there are always doubts when rumors arise. However, Nintendo has commented on the situation and the response is a bit different than the typical “we cannot comment on rumors and speculation” approach. Said Nintendo, “We are always developing new products; No formal announcement has been made, thus we cannot comment at this time.” The possibility of a new DS is still alive and well, especially because there are a few reliable Japanese sources behind the original rumor. However, it’s pretty much a guarantee that the rumor’s validity will finally be put to rest come Thursday at Nintendo’s fall conferences.

Update: Looks like Nikkei Net is confirming the news.

A massive rumor has just hit the Internet involving features in a new DS system. Nekkei newspaper and Monex have allegedly released information detailing functions in a new DS model such as music playback, the inclusion of a digital camera, and a larger screen. The new DS would sell for under 20000 yen in Japan later this year and would additionally allow for data exchange on an SD card between the Wii and DS. As was mentioned, the rumor also says there will be a wireless connection power up function and the digital camera would allow for news types of games.

Keep in mind that this is a very big rumor and I wouldn’t exactly trust this information (hence why I’m marking it as a rumor in the first place!) Even though Nintendo has conferences scheduled next week, considering the DS’ sales have yet to truly slow (and the fact that Nintendo hasn’t exactly been a full SD card supporter), a new system might not be the smartest thing for Nintendo.
