No DSi phase out planned says Nintendo

DSi still to be supported well after 3DS launch

Nintendo has moved to quash rumours that the DSi will be phased out in favour of the 3DS when it arrives.

Rumours emerged via an email translated by Kotaku appearing to indicate that Nintendo would be phasing out the smaller DSi units but keeping the DSi XLs in play for now.

Nintendo however released a statement to GamesIndustry.biz stating that they have no plans to phase out the DSi and indeed have more DSi products due out throughout 2011.

The 3DS is due out in Japan on February the 26th with Nintendo revealing their plans for the European launch in January the 19th.
