Nintendo’s just announced that they’ll be releasing a new Nintendo DS to be released in March of next year. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata made the announcement earlier in a an investor call.
You can have a look at the translated press release here, but it’s scant with regards to details, except for one thingâ€¦
Apparently the new handheld, tentatively called the Nintendo 3DS will feature 3D – and it won’t require you to do your mobile, public gaming with a set of silly glasses on either. Thank heavens.
According to the press release the device will allow you to play 3D games with the â€œnaked eye,â€ as well as it being backwards compatible. there’s no information on what’ll be under the handheld’s hood – but expect a whole lot more info at E3 in June.
Let’s just hope it’s better than the ill-advised, crimson, and headache-inducing Virtual Boy.
