Nintendo outs orange and green DSi bundles

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on November 22nd, 2010

Nintendo’s getting in the black friday spirit this year with two new orange and green DSi bundles. They seem like an odd color choice, but we are just happy to have variety. The bundles commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros. games and come with Mario Party DS.

The bundles will be available on November 26th aka Black Friday for $199.99. So, which one do you want? Let us know in the comments below.

Nintendo special edition Super Mario Bros. DSi and DSi XL

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2010

September 13th marked the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. so Nintendo is introducing special editions of the DSi and DSi XL to celebrate. Sadly these consoles are for Japan only. The big N will also be launching a Super Mario Collection Special Pack alongside.

The pack includes a version of Super Mario All-Stars for the Wii, a soundtrack CD, and a “Super Mario History, 1985 to 2010” booklet with some extra materials like initial development planning sheets handwritten by Shigeru Miyamoto. Also for Japan only.

Nintendo to drop DSi and DSI XL prices on September 12

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on August 30th, 2010

Nintendo is cutting the price of the DSi to $149.99 and the DSi XL to $169.99 (down $20 each) on September 12 in North America. They already dropped prices in the UK and Japan in June.

We still have no word what the 3DS will cost when it arrives, but we should get an announcement at the end of this month. In the meantime the big N will be selling tons of these models.

Control this Nintendo game with your face

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2010

The Nintendo Wii has exercised our bodies and now it aims to work out those facial muscles as well with this game that requires you to use your face to control it. The DSi Ware game called “Kao Glider” (Face Glider in English) allows you to control a hang glider with just your face.

As it flies around the skies, the camera captures your facial expressions and translates them into a gaming movement (up, down and around). It might just make your face sore and tone it up so that these games replace plastic surgery one day.

Puppet Pouch puts roadkill on your DS / DSi

Posted in Nintendo DS by Conner Flynn on April 29th, 2010

From CTA Digital, the Puppet Pouch is a furry case for your Nintendo handheld, with a felt interior and elastic straps to keep your Nintendo nice and warm. Like Luke in a Tauntaun. But not as neat.

There’s also a zipper compartment for storing games and accessories and if you must, it also acts as a puppet. So feel free to shove your hand up it’s butt and put on a show.

Video of McDonald’s Nintendo DS training

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on April 19th, 2010

We told you back in March about how McDonald’s was going to start training their employees using the Nintendo DS. It’s an interesting idea. And if you are wondering just how it works, we have a video after the jump.

The device being used is the Nintendo DSi, one that features the familiar golden arches. The training is like playing Cooking Mama, but for your fast food corporate masters.

Nintendo 3DS Additional Details

Nintendo DSi 3DS announcementNintendo Japan announced that they will be unveiling a new 3D version of the Nintendo DS at E3 2010 in June, called the Nintendo 3DS. We’ve found some more details in addition to it being a glasses-free 3D device and backwards-compatible with your DS DSi games.

These are rumors mind you and we probably won’t know for sure until the unveiling in June. There’s talk that the 3DS could have a number of additional features giving new dimensions to the gaming possibilities on the device. These include an accelerometer allowing it to sense tilting and motion, a higher-resolution LCD screen from Sharp, and possibly both the top and bottom displays working together as a single display.


Nintendo DSi XL is also an ebook reader

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on February 25th, 2010

As if we needed yet another ebook reader on the market. Well, the DSi XL’s larger display could be good for reading some classics. Nintendo knows that there’s money in the ebook market so they will be offering a downloadable package of ebooks called 100 classic books.

It will hit Wii channels on June 14th for $20. Then you can take a break from gaming to read some actual literature. Maybe some Mark Twain or Dickens. Assuming that they offer anything of that quality anyway.

Nintendo DSi XL hitting the US on March 28th, $190

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on February 24th, 2010

Nintendo has just announced that its new DSi XL (The DSi LL in Japan) will be hitting North America on March 28th for $190. You get a few extra mm of thickness and a much larger screen with two 4.2-inch LCDs.

At launch it will be available in Burgundy and Bronze, preloaded with two DSiWare Brain Age games, Photo Clock, Flipnote Studio and the DSi Browser. Those in Europe will be getting the XL on March 5th. What do you think? Are you getting one?

Next Nintendo DSi will have an HD screen, maybe 720p

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on January 6th, 2010

Satoru Iwata recently announced that the next DS will have a motion sensor, but that isn’t all. He also told Asahi that it will have a higher-resolution screen. An HD screen.

The next DS, after the DSi XL, will feature a 1024 x 768 screen, which close to 720p. Aside from that, Iwata also confirmed that Nintendo is in talks with several networks for connected DS consoles. Obviously they want to compete with iPhone games. Our guess is that an app store will also accompany these upgrades.

DSi to get voice chat channel soon?Word on the street is that the Nintendo DSi may be getting a voice chat channel very soon. Nintendo has denied the rumor, but what would you expect? This is the company that offered up Wii Speak for the Wii.

To redeem a Nintendo DSi Download Ticket number, such as for the Nintendo DSi Speak Channel, enter the number off the Nintendo DSi Download Ticket in “Settings and Features” off of the main Nintendo DSi Shop page, then select “Nintendo DSi Download Ticket.
