The Nintendo DSi is a handheld console, first released in Japan in November of 2008. It is the successor to, but is sold concurrently with, the Nintendo DS Lite. It features some enhancements of the original DS hardware and software, such as; camera functions, updated user interface, a DSi Shop, similar to the Nintendo Wii Shop Channel, and many other features. It retains some other features, however, such as DS Download Play, Pictochat, and an alarm function. One of the biggest changes between the DSi, and the original DS models, was the removal of the Game Boy Advance slot. The DSi later received a redesign in the form of the Nintendo DSi XL (Nintendo DSi LL in Japan).


The appearance of the DSi is basically the same as the DS, except with bigger screens, two cameras on the inside and outside, and the "power" button on the bottom left corner of the inside, instead of the outside. The DSi's stylus design is visibly altered as well, being slightly longer, and of a different color.

Kirby Games on the Nintendo DSi

There are no Kirby games released for the Nintendo DSi or DSiWare service. All Kirby games playable on the regular DS and DS Lite can be played on the DSi, with the exception of Game Boy Advance games, due to the removal of the Game Boy Advance slot.
