Nintendo 3DS 'not a formal name'

Iwata-san reveals handheld might yet be called something else

Satoru Iwata has revealed that Nintendo's new 3D handheld may yet not be called the 3DS.

According to Iwata, the previously announced 'Nintendo 3DS' is a temporary name for the device.

"Since we've stated that it will go on sale during the present term," Iwata said at a financial briefing this week, "I think the formal name will be made public in the not so distant future."

Nintendo previously stated that the entirely new handheld console will go on sale between April 2010 and March 2011 (AKA this financial year).

CVG believes that the Nintendo 3DS release date will arrive in October.
