No plans for another 3DS model anytime soon says Iwata

After the launch of the XL which is soon, Iwata says there are no plans for another 3DS model anytime soon and that the XL was only made because of the demand or “Great Need” of larger screens and says that nothing else really needs to be changed. I have a feeling there will be one though maybe not too soon but maybe in a year or two.

Shin’en developer Manfred Linzner thinks that re-released HD Wii games on Wii U would be better than many of the current games that are available on consoles such as Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Nintendo hasn’t mentioned whether or not it will release select Wii games in HD, but it’s clearly something that fans are clamouring for.

“You could easily take many original Wii titles from Retro Studios or Nintendo and release them again in HD and they would look and play better than many current titles. I believe that the most important resource in game development is the developers, rather than the actual hardware.”
