Nintendo's president speaks out on how the DS will communicate.
Mainichi Interactive has just posted an interview with Nintendo's president, Satoru Iwata. In the interview, which was conducted before Nintendo had officially announced the DS, Iwata speaks about the forthcoming handheld system.
Most importantly, he revealed that the Nintendo DS will feature a short-range wireless communication feature. This wireless communication will allow multiple Nintendo DS systems to link up with each other for expanded gameplay. It will likely be similar to the wireless connectivity used in Pokémon Fire Red and Leaf Green as well as Mario Golf: Advance Tour.
The interview also goes on to repeat Nintendo's current stance on video games. The company still believes that the industry is at a dead end and that it will take lots of innovation in order to get things really moving again.
