Today Nintendo kindly reminds us that the third iteration of the crazy-popular portable gaming system, the DSi will launch this Sunday, April 5th, and besides having your mind blown by its pure awesomeness, the Japanese video game company announced the five launch titles for the alluring DSiWare service.
Nintendo DSiWare, similar to WiiWare on the Wii, will allow for studios both large and small to release titles of every genre via this download service at varying price increments.
The five launch titles are:
- “WarioWare: Snapped! – Using the built-in Nintendo DSi camera, this outrageous title puts players right at the center of fast-paced mini-games, challenging them to race the clock and get a peek at Wario’s photo album.
Bird & Beans – Using an elastic tongue, players must scramble to collect falling beans. The harder a bean is to catch, the more points it’s worth.
Brain Age Express: Math – In this math-focused edition of the popular Brain Age series, players can enjoy a mix of new and familiar training exercises. A new Themes mode also lets Nintendo DSi users experiment with images and voice recordings in fun, unusual ways.
Master of Illusion Express: Funny Face – This game uses your Nintendo DSi as a prop in a card trick. Draw a face on the touch screen and astound your audience as the face tells them which playing card they picked.
Art Style: AQUIA– The newest addition to the eye-popping Art Style series, this mesmerizing underwater puzzle game challenges players to help a scuba diver reach the ocean floor by matching a series of colored blocks.”
Furthermore Nintendo is making damn sure we remember that this time around the web browser functionality will not only be free and accessible wherever wifi can be found, but also much, much faster than the sluggish original.
And as an added bonus, Nintendo is tossing 1,000 DSi Points to gamers who connect to the DSi Shop before October 5th.
