Yes. So this is the major news of tonight. Someone, somewhere, found this: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2010/100323e.pdf
on Nintendo's very own website. A true successor to the DS, in 3D, WITHOUT GLASSES? Count me in.
Also backwards compatibility is nice, but I still don't think that the DSi took off on it's own with the lack of EXCLUSIVE DSi-only software.
E3 can't come soon enough.
Oh yea, DSi XL sales just got crushed.

"Nintendo 3DS"(temp) is going to be the new portable game machine to succeed "Nintendo DS series", whose cumulative consolidated sales from Nintendo amounted to 125million units as of the end of December 2009, and will include backward compatibility so that the software for Nintendo DS series, including the ones for Nintendo DSi, can also be enjoyed.
We are planning to announce additional details at E3 show, which is scheduled to be held from June 15, 2010 at Los Angeles in the U.S.
