Nintendo quiet on new DS rumours
DS with two touch screens "rumour and speculation" says company
Nintendo has told GamesIndustry.biz that it will not comment on new rumours of a redesigned DS handheld, branding talk "rumour and speculation".
US blog Kotaku has suggested that the company will be issuing a new DS next year, featuring two touch-sensitive screens.
According to the story, any official word on such a device would not be announced by Nintendo until after the Christmas sales period.
Sales of the handheld in Japan during the financial quarter ended June 30 have dropped, but the system is still selling well in Europe and the US.
