The forthcoming Nintendo DS handheld console won't be shown off at the Game Stars Live show in London next week, as some had hoped, although Nintendo will have an extensive line-up on its stand at the show.
The firm will be showing off titles including Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Donkey Konga and Animal Crossing on the GameCube, while GBA owners will get to see the new Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green titles and The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, among others.
However, there's no sign of the Nintendo DS in the company's line-up, which was announced today. Although it always seemed an outside chance at best, it had been hoped that the double-screened handheld would make its first public appearance at Game Stars Live, following its unveiling at E3.
Nintendo is also eschewing the Tokyo Games Show in late September, preferring to promote the DS at a number of smaller nationwide events ahead of its Japanese launch later this year.
