The Game Boy Micro could be on European shelves in time for Christmas, according to a report on Spanish business site finanzas.com.
"As of November, the company will complement the Nintendo DS with a new device, the Game Boy Micro," the report states.
When the GB Micro was unveiled at last month's E3, Nintendo would only give an estimated launch window of "Fall 2005". They've declined to comment on this latest news, telling Eurogamer: "No dates have been confirmed as yet."
The Finanzas article goes on to reiterate suggestions that Nintendo could release the Play-Yan accessory in the West. Nicolas Wegnez, head of marketing at Nintendo Spain, is quoted as saying that "at least some units" will make it to Europe.
As we reported previously, Play-Yan lets you save music and movies to SD card and then play them back on your Nintendo DS or Game Boy Advance. Nintendo also offers downloadable Play-Yan mini games via its Garage Games website.
We'll bring you confirmation on the GB Micro launch date and more Play-Yan news just as soon as we get it.
