DS Lite coming on June


We all new the sleek and slim Nintendo DS Lite was going to come to the USA, the question was just when. Now we know that the date has been set for June 11th and the system is coming in at the budget price of $129.99. That’s cheaper than the original DS when it came out in 2004. While Japan saw a couple of colors, North America only gets “Polar White”. The DS Lite is less than 2/3 the size of the original DS, it has a brighter backlight and a cover to protect an empty GBA slot. What did Nintendo have to say about the release? Reggie Fils-Aime calls the release of the DS Lite and Mario’s new adventure, New Super Mario Bros. “a double shot of gaming excellence.”
