So here’s a quick rundown on what’s going on with the new Nintendo DS, tentatively called the DS2 but, knowing Nintendo, they’ll probably call it the WiiDSBoard2Screen or something. The first improvement is an almost bezel-less set of two screens, so close together that they can act as one. It will also have an accelerometer and the dev kit is out and folks are currently working on games with an eye on an announcement at E3 and a 2010 release.
Raymond, who unearthed this info, talked only to devs and not Nintendo proper, so most of this information could be false. However, ‘tendo knows they need to keep moving lest they fall behind the iPhone juggernaut, so there’s definitely a chance he’s right.
