    It's official; Nintendo of Korea announced on February 25 that the Nintendo DSi is coming to Korea. The Korean DSi will be available on April 15, with four colours - white, black, sky blue and pink. Of course, there is one more colour for the Korean DSi; red, which will be bundled with Maple Story DS. This game will be available on April 15 in Korea, in standalone and DSi bundle package.

    The price for the Korean DSi is 198,000 South Korean (SK) wons, with the Maple Story DS bundle for 237,000 SK wons.

    What do you think about this news?

    Why do people act like it's such a surprise that Nintendo Hardware and games are released around the world?

    Huh? You mean Korea didn't get the DSi already?
    Weird, considering they actually got Heart Gold and Soul Silver after japan, but before America.

    MapleStory DS? Canceled?

    They wouldn't do that.
    MapleStory is way too popular.

    Canceling MapleStory DS in Korea is like canceling the next Dragon Quest game in Japan.

    FUCK!! We might as well see cheap and yet expensive Korean DSi here in Philippines. I now hate Korean Nintendo

    First the Wii. We have Korean Wii here that's been converted to US language

    next the Korean DS Lite

    and now Korean DSi?

    If I ever see a Korean DSi here in the Philippines, I will go BERSERK

    people DO KNOW we dont speak that damn Korean Language so I hope we dont get that Korean DSi.

    The Dutch have had to struggle with an issue like this for years.
    Here, only shitty games are translated. European DSes can be set to English, French, Italian, German, but not Dutch.
    For me it's not a problem anymore but younger people in the Netherlands frequently have problems because they don't understand english.

    More Korean lives destroyed via technology, maybe I'll import a copy of Maplestory DS to save a life.

    MAY PAL STORE REE DEEEEE ES!

    I think it will be highly overrated though....
    and of course every place will probably give it a 9/10 or 10/10 or 40/40 you know what i mean.

    Still worth a quick play maybe though

    If I was Nintendo, I would've just skipped the regular DSi and only sold the XL there. I don't think Korea would be as happy about missing out on the regular DSi, but since when did Nintendo care about people? Odds are it would still sell phenomenally because it would be the only DSi there.

    Not quite sure why they're bundling it with Maple Story out of all games, but whatever. The color looks cool at least.
