Looks like the DSi and its XL variant were only a stopgap measure to tide folks over for Nintendo’s next major handheld hardware revision. Meet the Nintendo 3DS — an all-new handheld that will serve as the successor to the company’s immensely popular DS hardware.

While there are no photos or spy shots of an actual 3DS unit available yet, Nintendo did drop a tantalizing tidbit in its press release, revealing that it will feature use of 3D technology that does not require any form of special glasses.

Additionally, the 3D-capable device will include backwards compatibility with DS and DSi format titles.  It’s due for release in Nintendo’s fiscal year ending March 2011.

Further details are scheduled to be announced during E3 2010 in Los Angeles.
