Next-gen Nintendo DS to get motion sensing, better graphics

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed some info about the next-generation Nintendo DS handheld console in an interview with a Japanese newspaper. He said the device will have better graphics, and a motion sensor.
A Nintendo DS successor? Up to now, Nintendo has released several variations of the Nintendo DS — however, it has not released a completely new handheld. Regarding a DS successor, Iwata offered this: "[It will have] highly detailed graphics, and it will be necessary to have a sensor with the ability to read the movements of people playing." In the past, motion peripherals have been released for the Nintendo DS.

But with the Nintendo DS posting record sales in America during 2009, the exec said this was not the time to discuss when this successor will hit the market.
Additionally, Iwata also announced a new Zelda game will be released by the end of 2010.
