Nintendo will announce the UK date and pricing of its DS Lite console on Monday, according to trade publication MCV. The magazine believes that the company will finally confirm the console's UK launch plans, following a similar announcement in America recently.
The console has been on sale in Japan since March 2006, proving to be incredibly successful and selling out immediately upon launch. The DS Lite is set to be launched in North America on June 11 for $129.99 (approx. £69) and in Australia on June 1 for AU$199.95 (approx. £80).
The DS Lite is 42 percent smaller in volume and 21 percent lighter than the original DS console. New features for the system include four different brightness settings, a longer and thicker stylus, and a relocation of the Power and Start/Select buttons.
