Nintendo of Europe has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that the newly unveiled DSi console will launch in the region in Spring 2009.
The DSi features the ability to download games directly to the console, as well as additions to the hardware which include a three megapixel camera and improved audio functions.
"We are aiming to launch DSi in Europe in spring 2009," said a company spokesperson.
However, Nintendo will not be releasing any further details of a European launch until closer to the date.
"As it's too early to confirm specifics on the European / UK launch we will not be offering further comment at this time."
The console will go on sale in Japan November 1, and cost JPY 18,900 (USD 179 / EUR 129 / GBP 101) .
