Nintendo has announced that the DS Lite, the redesigned version of its multi-million selling dual screen handheld, will launch in Europe on June 23rd, priced at GBP 99.99.

The original DS has already proved hugely popular with consumers around the globe, with 16 million units sold so far. The new model is around 60g lighter and two thirds of the size of the original, and features four screen brightness settings. It will be available in Europe in a choice of two colours - white or black.

Nintendo has lined up a healthy selection of software titles to coincide with the launch of the DS Lite. Brain Training, the mind exercising game which has taken Japan by storm, will launch here on June 9th. A new edition of Nintendogs - subtitled Dalmatian & Friends - will hit the shops a week later, followed by New Super Mario Bros. on June 30th.

July 7th will see the arrival of music maker Electroplankton and Big Brain Academy, a more lighthearted version of Brain Training.
