Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has said that the recently-announced 3DS’s named isn’t set in stone.

“”Since we’ve stated that it will go on sale during the present term,” he said, answering investor questions after the release of full-year figures last week.

“I think the formal name will be made public in the not so distant future.”

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out the 3DS “plan” is to be outlined in full at E3 in June.

The handheld has been confirmed to be launching before March 31 next year. Rumours have put it down for a 2010 release.

3DS is the next evolution of DS, and will allow 3D gaming without the need for special glasses.
