We recently reported the rumour of a redesigned Nintendo DS to emerge this week. The rumour was based on an article over at Lik-Sang.com - It seems the rumour was only that.
Nintendo have now commented on the story, via GamesIndustry.biz and the alleged "reveal" date has passed.
"But a Nintendo spokesperson has dismissed the reports, describing them as "pure rumour and speculation." However, although a redesign will not be revealed as soon as has been rumoured, it seems highly likely that Nintendo will unveil a new, more compact DS at some point in the near future."
As suspected really, but no news is good news. We do expect a redesigned DS sometime in the future, but no doubt after the release of the Nintendo Revolution console.
