A magazine in Japan is reporting that Nintendo is working on the 3DS Lite, a redesign of the 3DS with supposedly better battery life and a thinner design. There may also be a tiny performance improvement to speed up transitions between menus. This was always going to happen at some point so, the only question is, is this happening now? And even if this report is accurate, does that mean the new hardware will be released within the next year? Or is this only in the earlier, concept stages? There’s a lot of things we don’t know. The only constant is that, at some point, there will be new hardware. What do you think?
Update: The much-better-informed-writer of this blog (aka, Franco) has let me known that this “rumor” has been debunked. The magazine has stated that this information was speculation on their part. They don’t know anything in particular and were guessing as to what the 3DS Lite will be. I will leave this post here however so the trolls can add another notch to their belt of things they can hate me for. I’m kind like that.
