A popular portable video game machine will now double as a camera. Nintendo unveiled its next-generation DS handheld Thursday.

The Nintendo DSi includes a digital camera that lets users alter and mix images. It also has music playback and a larger screen.

The DSi will cost $180. It goes on sale in Japan next month and in the U.S. next year.
