Nintendo, preparing for the launch of the Nintendo 3DS, announced a price drop for the two current Nintendo DSi models in Japan.
Starting on June 19, the Nintendo DSi will retail for 15,000 yen ($164) instead of 18,900 yen ($207). A Nintendo DSi XL will cost 18,000 yen ($197) or 2,000 yen ($22) less than the current price.
Blue, yellow, and green DSi XL are in the pipeline too. A selling point for color coordinators, but the Nintendo 3DS is right around the corner and scheduled to make its debut this fiscal year.
