Rumor: Nintendo DS Successor Details

Apparently over at GDC there was some developers willing to talk about the DS successor which is rumored to be in the hands of some development teams. Game Informer spoke with many of these developers and reported back their findings.

First of all, the system they said the system has two screens like the DS but larger  ( they didn’t specify if this includes DSi XL). The gap between these screens is supposbly so narrow that developers can now make one single picture rather then worrying about the separation of screens.

In terms of power, the developers are saying that it is comparable to the Gamecube’s graphics. The dev kits are supposedly very easy to work with and that Gamecube and Wii developers have no problem jumping on board.

And of course, the supposed accelerometer that caused such a fuss earlier this year is said to be present in the system.

These developers reported that Nintendo plans on having the system finalized by the end of this year. Whether or not it will actually launch this year is unknown though.

Some developers said that Nintendo might show it at E3 this year, but they were unsure.

Those are some juicy bits, but of course they are all rumors.

How do you feel about the rumored additions? Anything in particular you would want or not want to see in Nintendo’s next portable?

  1. I’m hoping for wider screens, and I’m hoping the resolution will be much better. And DLC please. Each of these would contribute to EBA2 (IT WILL HAPPEN JUST YOU WATCH D:) quite nicely.

  2. I dough they show it off at E3 this year. If they show off a new handheld right after the DSi XL comes out in the US not only will people not buy it but it will surely cause there stock to go down. But since were talking about a more powerful hand held maybe it could emulate gameboy advance games so Nintendo could start selling download able GBA games like maybe Mother 3.
