DS2 needs '3G and GPS tech'

DSiWare dev shares his vision for the future

A leading DSiWare developer has told ONM that DS 2 should feature GPS and 3G connectivity.

Nik Watt, the man behind the excellent DSiWare game Pop Plus Solo hopes that GPS and 3G technology will be included "so that you're able to play online wherever you are."

The Nnooo Games Creative Director added "We would also be able to add location-based features to games."

His comments come a week after Monster Hunter Tri producer Ryozo Tsujimoto said that the next DS needs stronger online functionality.

If reports that the DS 2 will be released this year are to be believed, it won't be too long before we find out what Nintendo's next handheld can do.
