Rumor: Next DS redesign details leaked?


Several big-name Japanese newspapers are dishing out details on Nintendo’s next redesign for the DS. Imported newspaper scans translated by NeoGAF lay it all on the table.

- Camera included
- Digital music playback feature
- Wireless connection function power up
-Allows users to wirelessly connect to “information terminals”
- Larger screen
- Will be released in Japan this year/ U.S. release is “being considered”
- Priced under 20000 Yen ($188 U.S dollars)
- New games can use camera
- Can transfer data from the Wii, or SD card.

Could this be what the upcoming Nintendo conference is all about, or are these Japanese news outlets blowing hot air again? Personally these details just don’t make sense. Wouldn’t larger screens stretch the old DS games to an ugly resolution? Another element that doesn’t seem to add up is the inclusion of a camera, and music player when majority of people already own both. What really kills this rumor is added SD card support which opens the door even wider for piracy.

You can take it, or leave it, but one thing is for sure…I smell some megatons approaching.
