LOS ANGELES - October 28, 2009

Leading gaming peripherals manufacturer, Nyko Technologies®, today announced that the Zoom Case, a detachable optical zoom lens and hard shell case for the Nintendo DSi™ , is now available on store shelves for $24.99. On the heels of Nintendo’s DSi update, which allows users to upload pictures directly to Facebook™, the Zoom Case will enable users to share clear shots taken from greater distances, while protecting their DSi from scuffs and scratches.

“Nyko strives to find ways we can improve upon today’s latest gaming systems,” said Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing at Nyko Technologies. “That tradition continues in a product like the Zoom Case which improves upon one of the landmark features of the DSi, enabling gamers to take higher quality images, which is perfect for the growing suite of social networking capabilities available on the platform.”

Nyko’s Zoom Case, a protective case with an 8x zoom lens for the DSi, significantly magnifies the handheld’s external camera. The Zoom Case wraps around the DSi, protecting it from bumps and scratches while the removable 8x optical zoom lens allows for closer, clearer shots from a greater distance. The zoom lens easily locks onto the Zoom Case, and when not in use can be safely stored in its own hard case for easy travel. The case’s textured grip provides a more comfortable hold for extended gameplay sessions.
