The Nintendo S (ニンテンドーS Nintendō S) or simply, NS, was known as Project Iris is a unrelased 32-bit gaming handheld developed and released by Nintendo. It was planned like the Nintendo DS. The S, short for "Screen" or "System" introduced distinctive new features to handheld gaming: oneLCD screens featuring a touchscreen, a built-in microphone, and support for wireless connectivity. The Nintendo S also features the ability for multiple S consoles to directly interact with each other over Wi-Fi within a short range without the need to connect to an existing wireless network. Alternatively, they could interact online using the now-closed Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service. Its main competitor was Sony's PlayStation Portable as part of the seventh generation era.
Prior to its if-release, the Nintendo S will be marketed as an experimental, "third pillar" in Nintendo's console lineup, meant to complement the Game Boy Color and Nintendo 64.

On 2008, Nintendo will releases the Nintendo Si, another redesign with several hardware improvements and new features. All Nintendo S models combined may have sold 30 million units, making it the worst selling handheld game console to date. The Nintendo S line never get succeeded by any console by Nintendo.
