DS2 dev kits in the wild?

With Nintendo's media summit just around the corner too...

Here we go. With Nintendo's media summit (and GDC 2010) only a few weeks away, its being reported that devleopers are already in possession of DS 2 dev kits.

According to a rumour that comes to you via Gamekyo (thanks GoNintendo), Nintendo has shipped out DS 2 development kits to a lucky few studios.

There are no details on who has them or what games they're being used for, but the new DS system is being tipped to launch before the end of the year.

Nintendo's media summit lands on feb. 24. Maybe we'll see more then?
