Newly revealed revision seems to include several dream features.
If a Nikkei story (or at least its translation) is to be believed, it would seem that the massively popular Nintendo DS is getting yet another upgrade, confirming another set of (the seemingly unending) rumors. Of course, this isn’t just a typical redesign – as with the DS Lite, which was really only smaller and brighter – but rather an upgrade that looks to bring a number of long-speculated and most wanted features to the handheld.
Among the most noteworthy, this new DS will include a built-in camera, which will apparently have uses in the Third Pillar’s ever-expanding library. Also, music playback is rumored to be included now, most likely made possible through the apparently newly-added SD card slot. And, finally, the system is also said to have an improved Wi-Fi support, offering news and weather, among other things (like we’ve seen on the Nintendo Wii).
For those of you worried about how much this new system will cost, fear not – apparently it will retail close to the Nintendo DS Lite unit, at just 20, 000 Yen (about $189 USD), or 3,000 yen more than the current. Unfortunately, while those details appear to be solid, it is somewhat less clear whether or not this new system will include dual touch screens or not (thanks to a slightly ambiguous line and a language barrier). As soon as we find out more information, though, you’ll hear about it right here, so be sure to check back at VGGEN often.
