Nintendo Europe has distanced itself from strong "rumour and speculation" surrounding a new DSi Speak Channel.
It all started on the Nintendo customer support website, where GoNintendo spotted the following line:
The Wii Speak Channel uses the Wii Speak microphone peripheral to allow people to chat together and in separate rooms if they wish. Mii avatars attempt to mouth what you're saying. You can also leave audio clips on message boards and record audio captions for pictures.
It's that exciting.
