French website 01.net reports that inside sources are claiming that the big N is working on a new 3DS model that would include toned down 3D effects and a second thumbstick, correcting two issues that early adopters have been clammering for.
Adding to the rumor’s believability, Nintendo is reportedly set to announce a detachable second thumbstick for the current 3DS model, priced at $10. Nintendo also has a pre-Tokyo Game Show event on September 13.
