Nintendo DSi Launching April 5 in U.S.

If you’re one of those people who can’t get enough of the Nintendo DS, or need yet to get one, chances are you’ve heard about the Nintendo DSi. Nintendo has put out a firm launch date for their latest release of the DS April 5, with a retail price of $169.99.

If you’re unfamiliar with what new features the DSi will have, it will come equipped with the Nintendo DSi Camera, Nintendo DSi Sound and Nintendo DSi Shop. Nintendo says the most noticeable features of the slim DSi is its two cameras – one on the external body, and the other facing the user. This camera will be the first to be on a gaming handheld system, allowing you to interact and manipulate photos, claims Nintendo.

The DSi sound application will feature voice recording and be a music player, allowing users to “play” with their music. There will be a number of audio settings for the user to mess around with and then save to an SD card if they want.

The DSi store will have downloadable games and applications available for a fee. Similar to WiiWare games, games will be made with the hardware/software features in mind. Games and applications will cost 200 points on up.
