Nintendo 3DS hardware designer Kenichi Sugino has revealed that the company have no plans to bring out a slimmer revised edition of the 3DS.
During the latest edition of Iwata Asks 3DS hardware designer Kenichi Suginostating stated that it would be tough to further slim down the console with future revisions like it did with the original Nintendo DS.
“The first thing (Nobuo) Nagai-san, who’s in charge at the Uji plant, said to me when he looked over the designs for Nintendo 3DS before mass production began was ‘This time it’s fully packed right from the start’,” recalled Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata.
“Oh, really?” replied Sugino. “But he was right. That’s why we don’t have any short-term plans for creating a more compact version of Nintendo 3DS like we did with Nintendo DS Lite.”
“Yeah,” added Iwata. “When making Nintendo 3DS, we used all our tricks for Nintendo DS Lite – and more – for cutting down on size right from the start.”
