Rumour: Japanese newspaper Nikkei is reporting that Nintendo will be releasing a new, larger version of the 3DS hardware this summer.
The Nintendo 3DS console, slender and pocket-friendly, may just get a tad bigger with a revised model rumoured to be hitting retail this year, with a 4.3 inch screen. The larger window would measure up to be around 1.5 the current size. Whether it would boast a second circle pad is unknown.
The newspaper has been correct on various occasions prior to official announcements from Nintendo themselves.
Europe, North America and Japan could play host to the new DS as early as this summer, with a supposed announcement during Nintendo's E3 conference tomorrow.
Do you think the 3DS needs that larger upgrade or should Nintendo stick to the current model? What other changes would you like to see in the 3DS hardware - form factor, shoulder buttons?
