Big news in the gaming industry today! Nintendo (the Japanese Giant) has announced that in the next fiscal year (which begins next month in Japan and ends March 2011) they will launch a successor to the Nintendo DS/DSi which includes updated hardware. One of the main new features is 3D gaming, sans those petty glasses.
In the meantime, what we do know besides the target release date is that there’s no pics of it/no price/no specs, but we do know that 3DS is that name of the device and it will be backwards compatible with DS/DSi games (meaning it will contain two cameras, one front-facing, one back) and will surely hit Japan first.
And as a reminder, the DSi XL is coming to the States on March 28th. Seems pretty pointless now, eh?
