MCV out of the UK and Bloomberg are both reporting that Nintendo President Saturo Iwata will announce a new DS along with Wii accessories at a press conference in Japan tomorrow. But don’t expect a price cut says Takashi Oka, a senior analyst at CSK Institute for Sustainability:

“Nintendo has no need to cut the Wii’s price,” said Takashi Oka, a senior analyst at CSK Institute for Sustainability, a Tokyo-based research firm. “If Nintendo cuts prices now, people who already bought the Wii will feel they’ve lost money. Nintendo won’t do such a thing.”

But all this was expected after the Nikkei news broke the story a few days ago. We’ll see if those screens that popped up earlier this week are real too. Let’s also see if IGN’s prediction of a May 2009 launch are correct.
