June 3, 2011, By Christian Davis

Some of the rumors can now finally be laid to rest. Nintendo has given truth to some of the rumors that have be filling up or thoughts. Today, Nintendo confirmed that their next console will have a six inch touch screen on their controller.

The console itself will also portable console by itself. The Wii was already pretty small, so this could be smaller? In addition to those announcements, Nikkei (subscription required) reports that the controller will contain a camera that players can use to import images  to create characters in game with.

As cool as that sounds, that could be just another gimmick and hopefully Nintendo doesn’t focus solely on the camera functionality. Nikkei also believes that the console will be available mid 2012 at the earliest.

We’ll have t see what Nintendo has to say during their press conference on Tuesday morning.
