We were expecting a new update to Nintendo's popular DS series after the rather disappointing DSi XL (or DSi LL in Japan), a model that was basically a bigger DSi with bigger screens, and suffice to say, the Japanese giant did manage to deliver some promising and potentially exciting news yesterday.
Engadget - Nintendo has just slipped out a press release in Japan informing the world that all-new 3D-capable portable hardware is coming, with a full unveiling set for E3 2010 this June. Tentatively titled the 3DS, this glasses-free 3D wonder is pitched as the successor to both the DS and DSi, and will use a "compatible cart" that should ensure backwards compatibility with your vast library of favorites from the older consoles.
But hold your horses, there is more to the story. Unofficial reports from Japan have surfaced online with regards to the mysterious 3DS, and they include speculations about the handheld supporting nifty technology such as a vibration function, and a "3D control stick."Learn more about it here.
