David Gosen, head of Nintendo Europe, has admitted at the recent ELSPA conference that the next Game Boy console is already in development. Yesterday, Famitsu published a report suggesting that the DS would make a bigger impact on the industry than the PSP, so news that another new, even more advanced Nintendo handheld is around the corner will cause Sony some concern. Indeed, this may even prompt Sony to start leaking details about a possible PSP2.
A new GBA was an inevitability, with many observers speculating that it would be called GBA Evolution (which corresponds to a recently trademarked acronym) and we can now confirm that the console does feature in Nintendoís immediate plans. If the DS was conceived in part to take the wind out of the PSPís sails, then the GBA2 is doubtlessly designed to crush it. Nintendo rules the handheld roost at the moment, and the company is evidently poised to fend off anyone encroaching on its territory.
As soon as there are any more details regarding the GBA2, GBA Evolution or whatever it may be called, expect to read them here first.
