Nintendo’s UK boss, David Yarnton, is either seriously uninformed or was suffering from corporate double-speek when, two days ago, he babbled incoherent about there not being a redesign of the Nintendo DS in the pipeline.
Today (the 26th in the US) it was announced by Nintendo Japan that they will be releasing the Nintendo DS Lite on March 2nd (in Japan only initially).
Incidentally, March the 2nd seems a popular day for game hard ware releases. The XBOX 360 is being released in AU/NZ that day too. I wonder if we will be getting the new DS Lite at the same time as our European friends…
