For those of you who didn't read about it over the weekend (why didn't you visit us? We were so cold, so ... lonely), Japanese business journal Nihon Keizai Shimbun – a.k.a. Nikkei – reported that Nintendo is poised to launch a new-model DS this year featuring a built-in camera and "music player." Nintendo of America told told MTV Multiplayer that the article was "solely based upon [Nikkei's] own research and speculation, without interviewing Nintendo."

NOA also said it "cannot comment on the Nikkei story," despite, well, having commented on it. "While Nintendo is always working on new hardware, we have not made any announcement about a [new] DS," it added.

As Multiplayer points out, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata is set to deliver his annual update on the company's business Wednesday. Last year's update included the revelation that Capcom's Monster Hunter 3 would appear on Wii and not PS3 as originally planned. NOA, as it turns out, is holding its annual Media Summit on Thursday and Friday of this week. Stars: aligning?
