When being questioned at an investor meeting, President of Nintendo Satoru Iwata was asked about the possibility of releasing another revision of the 3DS after the upcoming 3DS XL, and possibly a design that would include the much requested second slide pad for dual analog control. Mr. Iwata’s answered that if Nintendo was to release too many 3DS handhelds the user would be “perplexed” and thus confused as to which console to buy. As a result Mr. Iwata concluded the question by confirming that there will be no more 3DS revisions “in the near future.” So what does the “near future” mean then? Mr. Iwata told us that there would be no revision of the 3DS at E3 2012 and look what happened a couple weeks later, a new 3DS announcement! And a little over a week before the announcement of the upcoming 3DS XL, Shigeru Miyamoto also said that there were no plans for a 3DS revision, stating that he liked how the current 3DS was in its current state. Either Nintendo doesn’t communicate with each other or they just like to toy with us and do the exact opposite of what they’re going to say. So expect a 3DS Pro this holiday season.
