Nintendo to introduce a larger 3DS?

Chalk this up in the rumor column for now, but according to Japanese newspaper Nikkei, Nintendo is set to unveil a new, larger model for the Nintendo 3DS.

More specifically, this new 3DS model will feature a 4.3-inch touchscreen, roughly 1.5 times the size of the current 3DS model. However, that’s pretty much all Nikkei reported on this new model, as no other talk of the design of the system, as well as any additional features, were provided. However, Nikkei did provide a global release that could happen as soon as this summer.
