DS = Old News. DSi = New and Awesome!
Nintendo just announced a new Nintendo DS that's going to rock the world - the DSi. First, some bad news - the DSi has no GBA slot so say bye-bye to your old games. But the list of awesome is incredible. Here's a look at the upcoming powered-up DSi, from being thinner and having bigger screens to the really good stuff! Here's the 411.
- A built-in flash drive - This will let you save files and load more games than ever.
- It surfs the net - OMG.
- The DSi store - You can download games from here.
- TWO cameras. - A 3 Megapixel camera on the front, plus a lower-res one for self-portraits.
- The DS is turning into a computer for your pocket! And, all this awesome will be available for about $190 when it hits stores in 2009.
Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant is on the way! Developed by Vancouver-based Radical Entertainment and with some game artwork supplied through a special Crash Bandicoot: Get Into the Game event here at Kidzworld, it hits stores on October eighth. Here's a look at the game trailer while you get ready for our game review.
The Bratz girls are having a party with their new video game and they want you to join! Bratz Kidz Slumber Party for Wii and DS lets you join the four Bratz girls with mini-games, style and more! Take a look at the video here.
Building a Buddy
There's a party going on at the Build-A-Bear castle and the Build-A-Bear: A Friend Fur All Seasons game lets you join in. To get to the party you need to build your own bear and travel around the world, solving puzzles and playing games with up to four players as you find your way to the castle. Here's a look at it with the trailer.
Wii Rule the World
Nintendo's got a new toy for the Nintendo Wii - Wii Speak. It's a mic you stick on top of your Wii and it lets you speak out of your Mee - letting you chat online. So, if you have a far away friend but your Miis can hook up, its like a free long-distance phone call! This is arriving on November 16 for $30.
Go Wylde With Guitar Hero
We have two new videos for you showing how rock stars Hayley Williams of Paramore and Zakk Wylde from Ozzy Osbourne's crew got digitized for the upcoming game. Check 'em out!
Puzzle Solvin' Brothers
The classic mystery solving brothers, the Hardy Boys, are taking another big step! HER Interactive (the folks that make the Nancy Drew games) and SEGA are teaming up to bring you The Hardy Boys: Treasure on the Tracks for Nintendo DS. This adventure sends Frank and Joe Hardy across Europe on a steam train on the tracks of a lost princess and a treasure hidden for over 100 years! Arriving in Spring of 2009, this game will let you visit Paris, Vianne, St. Petersburg and more as you search for the solution to brain-teasing puzzles.
Tackle Cancer With EA and Target!
EA's Madden NFL 09 has Brett Favre on the cover and a few special copies have a little something extra - a pink ribbon showing support for Breast Cancer. If you grab a copy of this game with the pink ribbon, EA Sports and Target will give a bit of money to the Deanna Favre HOPE Foundation, a breast cancer fighting organization that Brett Favre's wife founded in 2004 when she was diagnosed with the disease. Deanna was lucky enough to win her fight with breast cancer and, with help from EA, Target and gamers like you, even more people can survive it!
Skate This Groove!
We have a new video of EA's Skate It for Wii and DS! This one shows you some funky moves with a cool beat in the background. Click it!
It's a Plane, It's a Bird It's an... ATV?
Pure is a new racing game from Disney that lets you jump into the seat of a custom-built ATV and go screaming across muddy terrain. With 16 racers per track and so much air you'll swear these rides are part plane, it looks incredible. And two of the seven (eight with the unlockable guy) drivers are girl racers! Check out these videos to see the game take flight.
