Nintendo Patent Application Hints At New DS Cartridge Design

By Spencer . March 5, 2010 . 1:47pm

cart6 Nintendo filed a patent application for a new kind of cartridge, which appears to be for a Nintendo DS or perhaps a Nintendo DS-like successor.


As you can see in figure 9, the cartridge sticks out a little, but not as much as a developer cart. Well, that’s if this cartridge is used for a Nintendo DS. The application reads “the broken lines showing of an electronic game machine is for illustrative purposes only.” On the other hand, the number of pins for this proposed cartridge design is the same as a standard Nintendo DS cart.


New Nintendo DS cart or cartridge for a new Nintendo DS successor? You decide.
