Whilst none of this information should be taken as gospel, it has been confirmed that specific game developers have received DS2 development kits from Nintendo.
- The new system features a dual screen, typical and characteristic of the original DS unit. However, the main difference is that the gap between the two screens are almost negligible, to the point that the user can use it as one big screen. It is also said to feature bigger and higher resolution.
- DS2 will feature an accelerometer.
- The dev kit is designed to be similar in power to the GameCube. As you may have already heard, the new DS is rumored to have an Nvidia Tegra chip.
- An E3 2010 announcement and a late 2010 release is possible.
