Computer and Video Games.com has a tasty rumor that Nintendo plans to release their follow-up to the hugely successful DS this October. One of their senior sources added:
In my experience, you don't launch a product that early to Christmas unless you're confident in it - and going to spend a lot of money on it. We're reassured that Nintendo is going to give it some decent backing in Q4.
Nintendo's official announcement will be at this year's E3 event, according to the site. The new system will play new, 3D titles (no glasses needed) as well as being backwards compatable with DS games. No specific date has been announced for the system's release, but we'll keep you up to date on all future developments.
