Nintendo of Japan today confirmed the rumor of the successor to the DS, which they have called the Nintendo 3DS. Its a new hand-held system which will incorporate 3D technology (presumably using Gamecube Power) and is scheduled to be released before March of 2011.

It is said to use 3D features without the use of 3D glasses, which makes it highly advanced in technology considering that it is a handheld console. DS/DSi games are confirmed to be backwards compatible with it.

It is confirmed that this new system will be unveiled at this year’s E3 show, which will take place between June 15-17.

Details are a bit slim for now, but more information would be revealed soon, so be sure to stay tuned for more updates from Nintendo.
