PostSubject: Nintendo 3DS Redesign Coming In 2012? UPDATE   Sat Aug 27 2011, 19:59

French gaming site 01Net who received leaked information about both the PlayStation Vita and Wii U are reporting that Nintendo is currently busy prepping a redesign for the Nintendo 3DS. Apparently the redesigned Nintendo 3DS will launch sometime next year.

“This information corroborates several elements we obtained very recently from various sources. According to them, Nintendo is currently preparing a new 3DS for a 2012 release. This new version would radically tone down the whole ’3D’ angle, with a new design and even probably a different name. In that perspective, the radical price-slashing, touted as a measure to boost sales, would also be a way to liquidate current stocks to make way for the successor…”

SOURCE: http://mynintendonews.com/2011/08/22/nintendo-3ds-nintendo-3ds-redesign-coming-in-2012/

Although Nintendo denies those claims, rumour has it that the redesign will include a second stick. Moreover it is said that Nintendo will answer their customers´ demands and focus less on the 3D effect, which might even lead to a new naming of the handheld.

What do you think? Are those just assertions without substance or will Nintendo really release a "Nintendo3DS Lite" like they did in the past?

Well, the 3DS is not even a year old, so, I don't see how a 3DS Lite can come so quickly. Plus, the 3D is a great feature, there's not even the slightest reason to drop it. Maybe, just maybe, they'll work a more powerful version of the 3DS (if it wasn't powerful enough anyway), but I can't imagine a redesign of the 3DS (that second... removable... stick is just pure fiction), it looks good enough anyway (comparing to the DS Phat, the 3DS is way better looking). But, there's not too much time left until the TGS, so, we'll see what Nintendo is preparing then. I still think that all this redesign rumors are pure fiction but... everything is possible.

UPDATE:

According to andriasang.com the next issue of Famitsu will include details on a first party Slide Pack Expansion for the 3DS, that also adds a R2-button to the system.

Here you are my friend:


For the first time since it was announced, I think the 3DS looks bad... well, with the slide pad, it does look awful.

If they're actually gonna redesign it, I hope they won't add another analog stick. One is ugly enough anyway, two will make the 3DS look more like a gamepad (or the Wii U controller, if I have to compare) than a console. I like the 3DS as it is now, dunno why you want a redesign...

I like the 3DS like it is now, too. But if another analog stick will be necessary to play certain games, I´ll rather wait for a (probaply better) redesign than purchasing an "old" one. Moreover there aren´t any games that I´d like to have atm, so I might as well wait and see what the future holds. Razz

Well, yeah, guess that, if the second analog stick is actually needed (though I can't see why, cause First-Person Shooters played really well on the DS with the touchscreen), than, yeah, I'd like a redesign too, considering that this peripheral looks awful. And it most certainly would look even more awful on a Flare Red 3DS.

Updated image guys:


Yep, still sucks, though it looks 0.01% better than the last image showed it. Nintendo, why are you torturing us?

Guys, 3DS with slidepad or this:






I'll go for those 3 ^ mockups! Much better than the slide pad.

I think I would choose no. 3. It reminds me of the classic button-alignment of most good gamepads. Moreover it seems to be the ergonomically best solution.

By the way what's the purpose for the additional controller anyway? If it was so integral to design why wasn't it added during the concept phase? Nintendo is pretty innovative on their controller designs so I'm assuming that they didn't have a need for it to begin with.

@ revo:

I don´t see the necessity, too. But it seems as if some games like Monster Hunter will need it. Maybe the game developers demanded one?

Quote :
Monster Hunter Tri 3G
Resident Evil: Revelations
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D
Acecombat 3D
Dynasty Warriors Versus
Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance

Arrow Source

These are the games that need it so far. My thoughts:

Noooooooooooo! Why do I need that stupid looking thing for Resident Evil: Revelations AND Ace Combat. Nintendo... erm, Capcom, you just lost 2 sales.
