Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has mentioned first details of a possible new handheld from Nintendo: one that may not be a new DS SKU.

Speaking in an interview with The Asashi Shimbun (via Kotaku), Iwata only said this much on a new device:

“[It will have] highly detailed graphics, and it will be necessary to have a sensor with the ability to read the movements of people playing.”

Bar the multiple DS SKUs released so far, this is the first time Nintendo has talked about a new-new handheld in any form.

E3? Brace yourself.
