Contrary to what we reported earlier this year, when we wrongly assumed that the new Nintendo DSi handheld would have a whole host of exclusive games only available on that format, Nintendo has today confirmed that its very likely that all games for the DSi will also work on the DS and the DS Lite.

Speaking with MTV, Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime said "Our expectation is that most of the content will be, call it, DSi-enhanced vs. DSi-exclusive."

"Why? One hundred-million installed base of DS. Developers are going to want to leverage that installed base and yet they’ll want to provide extra content via the features of the DSi, like the camera. That’s my expectation as to how it will play out."

Asked whether the new Zelda will be enhanced for DSi, Reggie just teased saying "wouldn't that be nice."
