Gamers around the world have eagerly anticipated the release of the Nintendo DSi but only gamers in Japan have been able to enjoy it until now.  However, Kotaku is reporting that Nintendo will be dropping it on U.S. shores in April.

The next Nintendo DS, dubbed the DSi, is rumored to be launched in the United States in April of this year, according to a report from IGN which cites “multiple sources close to Nintendo.”

According to the report, the follow up to the tremendously successful Nintendo DS Lite will land on U.S. shores on April 4 and for a premium price of $179.99. That’s $50 more than the cost of the current model and in line with Japanese pricing.
