This isn't new territory for Nintendo, they've just taken a break on the console front for the last couple of generation cycles.

The NES 2 came out shortly after the SuperNES was release. The SuperNES mini was released shortly after the release of the N64. And of course the Game Boy micro (which was part of the GBA line) came out after the DS was already released.

Standard fare. By this point, even if they look different, they're now ridiculously cheap to produce. And as such, easy and profitable pickings to sell to those few who are interested (collectors, perhaps) and stragglers who are late to the party.
