The specs you'll find below are said to have come directly from Nintendo development support group Wario World, though that really doesn't count for much as far as legitimacy is concerned. Still, they look pretty legit, and are an interesting read if nothing else. 

VGLeaks says that this information comes directly from an anonymous source, straight from that Nintendo dev group. 

The CPU "Espresso" has 3 cores, the GPU is a AMD Radeon affair set up for HD graphics (up to 1080p), and there's 1GB of memory to play with. Storage memory is set at 8GB, but you'll supplement that with SD cards. See the full rumored specs below.
