Nintendo to launch red, blue DSi devices 'as early as this week'
The company unveiled the new-look device on Twitter today. The new DSi comes in a matte finish.
Nintendo's DSi has been overshadowed by the company's 3DS, but that doesn't mean the company will leave the DSi in the dark.
The game maker announced today a "color refresh" for its DSi, and will soon launch both red and blue matte-finish DSi devices.
Nintendo's DSi was a predecessor to the company's latest handheld, the 3DS. The DSi comes with the same dual-screen design and offers both front- and rear-facing cameras. Unlike the 3DS, however, it doesn't come with glasses-less 3D support.
Earlier this year,. The DSi XL, which delivers the same device with larger screens, was brought down to $129.
According to Nintendo, the new red and blue DSi handhelds can be found at retailers "as early as this week." Nintendo already sells several other colors, including black, pink, and a much lighter blue.
