As expected, Nintendo didn't openly announce the new, larger-screened DSi
in response to a Nikkei
article mentioning it. In a statement to Famitsu
(as translated by Siliconera
), Nintendo said, "Our company is not doing any interviews. We believe this article is speculation." Of course, that is merely a comment on how Nikkei
arrived at that information, and not
a denial of the information.
It's familiar, as well. Nintendo of America said almost exactly the same thing
's early reveal of the DSi, so we wouldn't dismiss the possibility of a DSi upgrade yet. We're checking in with Nintendo of America to find out more.
