Nintendo 3DS carts will have 8GB capacity?

The latest from the console rumour mill is news on the cartridges for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS, the company’s glasses-free 3D handheld.

Kotaku reports that the 3DS carts will be manufactured by Macronix, and the current speculation is that they’ll have a whopping 8GB maximum capacity.

However, it seems that won’t all be used to begin with, and Nintendo will limit things to 2GB initially, as has previously been widely reported (although that’s still four times as much as the DS).

In the future, that could be ramped up further, providing that this rumour isn’t off the mark, of course.

The Nintendo 3DS is expected to launch in March 2011.
