Nintendo has announced its newest portable hardware, the Nintendo 3DS (a name which is marked as "temp" in the brief press release issued by the company). This new handheld is planned for launch in Nintendo's next fiscal year, which ends March, 2011.
The new hardware is not an update to the original, 2004-launched Nintendo DS hardware -- as its Lite, DSi and DSi XL have been. According to the press release, the new platform will "succeed" the Nintendo DS -- which stands as Nintendo's most successful hardware platform ever.
The platform will allow users to play 3D games without the need for special glasses, the release said. No details on this technology, nor other aspects of the platform, beyond its backward compatibility with existing Nintendo DS and DSi games, was revealed.
Pricing and software lineup details are also presently undisclosed.
The release promised that more details will be revealed at Nintendo's E3 press conference. The E3 show begins June 15, 2010.
