DS Lite to hit shores on June 11

Recommended Posts

Our news overlords at Joystiq report that Nintendo's DS Lite system will hit North American shores on June 11th of this year.


In a press release sent today, Nintendo announced that on June 11 the DS Lite will be released in North America. The handheld will be priced "as low as $129" which might imply that in addition to a base unit, bundle(s) could be made available. Also provided in the release were key enhancements to the system:


* It's less than two-thirds the size of the original Nintendo DS and more than 20 percent lighter.

* Its two bright screens can be adjusted to four levels to adapt to different lighting conditions and to extend battery power.

* The microphone sits in the center of the unit, and the LED lights are clearly visible whether the unit is open or closed.

* The stylus is 1 centimeter longer and 1 millimeter thicker than the stylus of the original, and slides into a side storage slot.

* The Start and Select buttons were repositioned for easier access.

* A removable cover keeps the Game Boy Advance cartridge slot clear from dust and debris when it's not in use.
