Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has made comments that indicate a redesigned Nintendo DS hardware set could be just around the corner.
Speaking exclusively to SPOnG Iwata-san said, “Hardware developers at Nintendo are always looking for what comes next and what will be the new direction as soon as they finish the design of any particular piece of hardware,” explained Iwata-san. “Some of them are actually working on improved functionality of the existing machine, with some working on a rework of the exterior design exactly in the same way they did with the transition from Game Boy Advance to Game Boy Advance SP.”
As you may be aware, this news comes after the design of the DS and certain aspects of its interface received a mixed reaction for the Nintendo faithful.
