Could Nintendo Go be the final name of Nintendo´s next-gen console? Engadget has been sent the above image. Here´s their story:
Someone sent in this image of what they believe might be a swiped slide from Japan showing off Nintendo's final brand for the forthcoming Revolution. Supposedly it could be announced later today by Iwata-san at GDC in San Jose, but until one of our faithful readers wants to translate what little text is visible we're by no means prepared to comment on the validity of this shot -- if anything, we're inclined to call hoax, since they quite often are, particularly with Apple and Nintendo.
I am undecided about its validity. The name is cool. The logo I would have to get used to.
EDIT Apparently, ´Go´ means 5 in Japanese. The name would fit perfectly, this being Nintendo´s fifth console.
EDIT Here´s a translation of the Kanji, courtesy of Arihb.
1. Burando wa Hanei... Brands reflect/influence....
2... mu no nyuushu no kanou... ..the possibility of attaining...
3...[toumen?] ga ima made ni... ..* until now..
4..."GO". to burando... ..the brand "GO"...
5...emaa wa ima made ni... ..**emaa was until now..
6...sentaku wo keiken suru kikai.. ..opportunity to experience the choice....
7...[shi]sutemuleberu de fukun[de].. ..bear in mind the system level..
8...gijutsu ni saishinjouhou wo tsuka.. ..use new information on technology..
*The first kanji means to step on, or trample, the second means features. I don't know what they mean together, no matter what's in front of it. The rest means
** the first half of this word is probably on the line before it, but I can't figure out what it is.
Thanks for the translation, Arihb.
