Lighter, tidier DS: New shots

That gaping GBA slot that blighted the look of the original DS won't trouble the slimmed down version: DS Lite comes with a port "plug" that slips into the GBA cartridge slot.

We first thought that Lite would have a letterbox-style flap over the hole, but from these brand new screens of the streamlined handheld you can clearly see just how the gaping problem is solved.

With the Japanese launch date rapidly approaching, we'll be hunting down a real-life DS Lite to give you a hands-on report very soon. Stay close.
