Nintendo has denied reports that it is to cease manufacturing the DSi range of home consoles due to the imminent release of the 3DS in February.
In a statement issued to press including GamesIndustry.biz, a representative for Nintendo said there are still DSi products to be launched in the UK throughout this year. An earlier report translated by Kotaku claimed the system would be dropped - although the larger DSi XL was still to be manufactured.
"We plan to still manufacture and supply DSi consoles in a range of colours in the UK in 2011," said Nintendo.
"On an on-going basis, continuing supply is based on retail and consumer demand."
The 3DS is released next month in Japan on February 26, priced ¥25,000 (£194). European and US details are to be announced next week, with a launch window of March. Nintendo is manufacturing 4 million units for the two month launch period.
