New Nintendo DS to come with Camera and Music Player?


According to a report from Nikkei Net, Nintendo will introduce a new version of it’s hugely successful Nintendo DS later this year, featuring a built-in camera and music playback. The new version of the DS is also reported to have improved wireless functions. Some versions of the report indicate the improved wireless capabilities will allow the new DS to connect to “information terminals,” expanding the machine’s non-gaming features.

Nintendo replies:

We are always developing new products. However, since nothing has been announced officially, we are unable to comment at this time.

The Japanese version of the report mentions that pictures taken via the DS’s internal camera can be used by games, opening up new gameplay options.

Nikkei Net writes that the new version is “expected to be priced below 20,000 yen.” The Nintendo DS Lite is currently priced at 16,800 yen in Japan. The new DS will launch first in Japan, with the country seeing an allocation of “several hundred thousand units” before any overseas sales.

  1. I wonder if it can play music while you’re playing a game. XD For games like crossword puzzles and sudoku in particular.
