“We have ideas of what we want to bring to the consumer that we can’t do with the current [DS model]”, Fils-Aime said in an interview with Business Week. “The Nintendo 3DS for us is our next handheld platform.”
Aside from displaying 3D images without the need for special glasses, Nintendo has not said much about their upcoming hardware. A reveal is being saved for E3.
Nintendo launched the Nintendo DS in 2004 and the handheld will be six years old this November. The Nintendo 3DS is scheduled to come out this fiscal year, which is between April 2010 to March 31, 2011.
