According to this, DS Lite is about to launch in South Africa, alongside New Super Mario Bros, Nintendogs, Mario Kart DS and Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training: How Old is Your Brain. South African gamers will be able to pick up four colours: white, black, silver and pink. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to get the cobalt blue SKU, South African people, but we’re sure you’ll survive.
