Typically, they don’t wait this long for an upgrade – there were only three-year gaps between the GameBoy Color, GameBoy Advance, and the DS. But since the release of the DS in 2004, it’s been seven years since we’ve seen a successor. And no, the DSi does not count." The Gameboy Colour was just an update to the original Gameboy which was released in the '80s, if you want to count that as a major hardware release, then you have to count all the various iterations of the DS, which would mean that it's only been a couple of years since their last handheld was released. “One thing to keep in mind is that 3D gimmicks aside, it’s high time Nintendo released a new, more advanced handheld anyway.
