There are some fun rumors floating around right now concerning wireless gameplay on the Nintendo DS and a "secret" announcement due from Nintendo. First, this is all speculation. Second, if the rumor is true, it would be awesome! So what is the rumor? Well, according to Engadget and various other sources the DS will go well beyond its assumed 802.11 wireless range. The rumors suggest that the DS will be able to act as a repeater hub meaning that an organic network could be established without having to actually be near a wireless hotspot. In other words, a worldwide instant network of gamers.

To add to all of this speculation is a post on GameCubicle.com which seems to suggest various marketing ploys and campaigns for such a feature. The most prominent seems to be the picture of a young boy in the woods holding a Nintendo DS. Going further, it seems that the words, "Find Me" seem to be a big part of this rumored campaign. In addition to the lone boy in the woods, there are images of puppets (marionette) with the words, "Find Me." Think of the word "marionette"....Mario Net? Yes, it would seem a great marketing ploy to suggest that stringed marionettes are the image we'll associate with Mario Net.

Going even further, it seems that in the words, "Find Me," there is a faded "s" after the "d" and before the "M". In other words, "FindsMe" with a faded "s". The middle of that phrase is now "DS".

And, why not add one more myth to this growing story. It seems that there is also a lot of reference to the 15th century explorer, Magellen, who was the first to circumnavigate the globe. Perhaps Nintendo will be suggesting that the DS will be the first network to do the same.

Hmm? Well, it would be quite an amazing feat if Nintendo could pull this off and if it did actually work. Then, you'd have free world-wide long distance in addition to a great gaming platform.

Again, don't believe any of this until you hear confirmation. It is very fun to think about but don't get too excited.
