Nintendo dismisses widescreen DS claims

"Purely rumour and speculation."

Nintendo has told Eurogamer that claims it is preparing to unveil a widescreen DS are "purely rumour and speculation".

Rumours emerged after a suspicious Nippon Ichi advert was posted by website Aeropause. It shows the publisher's upcoming titles on a DS with much larger screens.

Nintendo's comments would suggest this doesn't mean much, though the platform holder did not comment directly on the advert's authenticity.

The possibility of Nintendo unveiling a redesigned DS model at next week's E3 show in America also remains a talking point. Observers suggest the publisher has historically favoured revising its handheld hardware once every three years.
