This Sunday, Nintendo launches the highly anticipated Nintendo DSi in North America and, in order to lure even more of us at the launch events, the company decided to present the DsiWare titles that will be available when the Nintendo DSi Shop launches (in other words, the games you’ll be able to play as soon as you get the new handheld from Nintendo):
– WarioWare: Snapped! – Using the built-in Nintendo DSi camera, the game puts players right at the center of fast-paced minigames, 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. Ooooh!
– 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 Art Style series, this underwater puzzle game challenges players to help a scuba diver reach the ocean floor by matching a series of colored blocks.
OK, so maybe we don’t have the most exciting titles of them all – at least not from a “hardcore gamer’s” point of view, but these titles are still great for the casual audience. The same that will love the new DSi the most. We’ll see this Sunday how well it does.
