According to the article, the president of Japanese magazine publisher "Enterbrain" (which hosts the gaming bible "Famitsu") has commented that Nintendo may (note the emphasis) be announcing a new version of their blow-away success console: the Nintendo DS.

The president goes on to say that the announcement is likely to come at this years E3.

We're not entirely sure whether Nintendo are touting a redesign (a la: DS Lite, GameBoy Micro) or a whole new system. All we can say is that given the success of Nintendo's dual screen console we didn't expect the announcement of a new handheld until next year at the earliest.

I guess we'll have to wait until E3 to find out. All we know is that this years show is gonna be awesome and you'll be able to catch all the hottest news, as it breaks, right here on
