Editorials & Features from the Marioverse

The Nintendo DS, will it be what we expect?

Article originally written by Deemaster for Super Mario Portal (marioportal.com) on 9th of October, 2004.

 

Yes more information on the Nintendo DS. If you didn’t already know, the Nintendo DS is to be launched in the United States on November 21. This is also going to be launched with 10 titles. So there is a lot to look forward to. Nintendo also wish to then have around 20 games at the end of the year. This is expected to give the launch a huge success and demand.

One of the huge titles is to be the super Mario 64 DS game. It is to be a version of Super Mario 64 from the N64. A good feature for this is the wireless feature the DS now gives you.

We should also be seeing games like:

  • Rayman DS
  • Mario Kart DS
  • Spider-man
  • The Urbz: Sims in the city
  • Pokemon Dash Zoo keeper
  • Yoshi’s Touch & Go

And lots of games all to look forward to. Each game is estimated to be $29.99. Many of these games are to have a multiplayer function, such as Mario Kart DS, Yoshi’s Touch & Go and many others.
 

One game to look forward is Mario Kart DS. With the cool screen on the bottom platform of the DS, you can see the map there and demolish your racing rivals to the finish.

Is all these games going to reach this target though. Many of those games I know do not appeal to me. I’m looking forward to more from the Mario series and Yoshis own game. But titles like pokemon dash seem like old ideas and isn’t something I am really going to look at. Another Rayman game may be good but can it still improve in the other games on other consoles. I’m not entirely sure about zoo keeper or spider-man. Spider-man is another game that I have never really enjoyed to its fullest.

The only disappointment for all Nintendo fans in Europe is that you wont see this all till early 2005. Also will the DS have competition from sonys PSP. Even though I cannot gather any useful information on it, it still could be a stealthy competition. At this many Nintendo fans have shouted out to Sony calling them copy cats at their attempt to create a wireless gaming.

I know I cant wait for the release of the DS and I want to find much more info!
