IGN reckons it’s got the skinny on exactly when Nintendo’s new DSi will be reaching American shores.

The site claims are “multiple sources” have revealed that Nintendo “has allegedly relayed to its partners that DSi will ship stateside in early April, most likely on April 4,” so the rumour goes.

“Insiders assert that they have been told the system will retail for $179.99 when it launches domestically.”

DSi launched in Japan on November 1 last year.

The impossibly popular handheld sold over 1 million units on December 21 – that’s a little under two months, people.

Nintendo has previously stated that Europe will get DSi in the Spring.
