Nintendo's DS press conference

Nintendo had their DS press release today, but nothing much came out of it except the games though. So I’ll hit on the big games right now:

First we got Diddy Kong Racing DS. Didn’t get much out on this one yet, but it’ll probably hit the floor tomorrow. Judging by how good Mario Kart DS was, and the fact that this will probably be somewhat like it, I bet we got something good headed our way.

Then there’s DK: King of Swing DS, which is a sequel to the GBA game that had the motion sensors. Could be cool, I don’t know.

Now, DS Air looks interesting, but not in a good way. It’s a flight sim for the DS, which knowing flight sims, would be even more complicated then the DS racing games, which have all sucked. I’d just like to see how they’re planning on doing the controls.

Then there’s a new Kirby game that doesn’t have a name yet. It’s going to give Kirby a ton of new copy abilities. And there will be a bunch of minigames. Not much else known, but something to keep our eyes on.

And of course we have Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Apart from what was already known, they announced that almost all of it will be stylus driven, which pwns. They also said it will have a 2-player race kind of game.

Next up is Mario Hoops 3-on-3 coming on September 11th. Pretty obvious what it is, the question is, how will it control?

Just a few more left. Mario vs Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis is action-puzzle hitting September 25th. Not much on it, except that you’ll be able to make your own maps and use them on Nintendo Wi-Fi, which is a nice addition.

I see something about a Yoshi’s Island 2, but no details, which sucks. Stay tuned to see if anything comes out on that one.

Last game we got is Starfox DS. Pretty much the 3D shooter that Metroid Hunters is, but with Starfox and the ability to fly Arwings. Just like most of the other games announced, it’s got the Wi-fi connection. Sadly, if it’s got the same controls as Metroid, I won’t be getting it.


  • The next year for the DS looks promising. I'm excited.
