Nintendo DSi US Launch Date, Pricing Announced

BOOM widget 76771Nintendo's latest revision of its portable DS hardware, the Nintendo DSi, will arrive in the United States on Sunday, April 5 for $169.99, the company has announced.

The system will be available in two colors: blue and black.

Released in Japan last fall, the Nintendo DSi packs a slimmer profile over past Nintendo DS hardware due to the removal of the Game Boy Advance cartridge slot.

Other changes and additions include larger screens, two cameras, an SD card slot, and support for the new DSi Shop, which offers downloadable games and demos.
