Ahead of Nintendo’s E3 press conference tomorrow, it appears some news of what will be discussed has already spilled out in the Japanese press. The most important piece being that the company plans to launch a new model of the Nintendo 3DS.
According to a report from Nikkei, this new model of the 3DS will have a 4.3-inch screen (the current model’s bottom screen is 3.02 inches) and could be available worldwide within a few months.
In other words, a 3DS XL. Here’s hoping it also comes with a second thumbstick.
The report also claims the Wii U will launch at a price of around ¥30,000. That’s about $390, but that’s an unfair comparison to make at the moment given the lopsided exchange rate.
