New DS coming this year, says report

Nintendo will release a new model of its DS handheld later this year that can take pictures and play music.

That’s according to a report in the Japanese business daily Nikkei (via Reuters), which says the system will also be equipped with advanced wireless communications functions.

The price for the new machine, which will also be equipped with advanced wireless communications functions, is expected to be below 20,000 yen ($189) in Japan, compared with 16,800 yen for the current model, the Nikkei said.

If true, the new model could be announced next month, as predicted by MCV.

A Nintendo spoesperson told Famitsu "no comment" when asked about the Nikkei story, according to Kotaku.
