New Nintendo DS Screen Coming?

If colorful Nintendo Wiis don’t catch your attention, maybe speculation of a Nintendo DS does. A few popular Japanese blogs and forums have information posted revolving around a new Nintendo DS handheld, which will feature bigger screens for both top and bottom panels. The screens will measure 3.5 to 3.8-inches (currently they are both 3-inches on the DS Lite.)

I’m confident there’ll be a new Nintendo DS next year (Nintendo pummeled us with new GBAs every year too), I just hope the new version isn’t released too early in the year. Many consumers will be out purchasing a Nintendo DS Lite for someone this Christmas, and it’s going to be disappointing if a new version comes out right after they buy the DS Lite.
