Nintendo has told Eurogamer that claims a new DS model will be unveiled at E3 this year are "purely rumour and speculation".
Word spread after Enterbrain boss Hirokazu Hamamura said he thought there was a "possibility" of Nintendo producing a fresh iteration of the handheld at the event. Enterbrain publishes Famitsu magazine.
And the evidence stops there.
The Nintendo DS originally appeared here in March 2005, before the much prettier DS Lite was released in June 2006.
The handheld has gone on to sell over 65 million units around the world.
