Nintendo States that Nintendo DS Comments were Misinterpreted

Last week we announced that Nintendo had confirmed that they were working on a new Nintendo DS and that “the DS would require high resolution visuals and sensors for detecting player motions.”

This information was first reported in the Asahi Shimbun, whom had the interview with Satoru Iwata. Nintendo is claiming that the paper’s quote by Iwata was something that he never said. Kotaku translated the quote in the Asahi Shimbun into English, and then quote states “[It will have] highly detailed graphics, and it will be necessary to have a sensor with the ability to read the movements of people playing.”

Charlie Scibeeta, Nintendo of America’s Senior Director of Corporate Communications, stated that” Mr. Iwata did not make any comments regarding the functions of Nintendo’s future hardware systems. The answer to the reporter’s question was misinterpreted.”

As to who is telling the truth, only time will tell. Nintendo is known for their “we don’t comment on rumors” attitude, which leads one to believe that their denying of this fact means that there is some truth to it.
