Nintendo trademark tips DS Motion-Sensitivity

Nintendo have trademarked two new gaming-related terms, one of which suggests that a motion-sensing add-on for the handheld DS is in the works.  The trademark database refers to the "DS Houi Sensor Card", with houi meaning "direction" or "cardinal point" in Japanese, and has led to predictions of a new range of cartridges that would offer title-specific motion-sensing.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days for DS coming to US

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days for DS coming to US

Apparently the makers of Kingdom Hearts really like to name their games strangely. The Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories game just came out today but it seems another Kingdom Hearts game will be coming to the US as well. And it has a strange name, too.

The game is called Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and will be available for the Nintendo DS. In this new game, you will be able to portray the role of Roxas, a member of Organization XIII. Sure, this sounds completely unrelated to Mickey Mouse, but it does have a tie in.

According to the press release, Roxas as the "other" hero from Kingdom Hearts II and this new game focuses on what happened while Sora was asleep. Roxas travels across the Disney Worlds and you will then uncover the ties between him, Sora and the 14th member and why he left the organization. Sounds interesting. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will also have a multiplayer mode.

EA’s Skate It! is now available

EA’s Skate It! is now available

If you're big into skating games, then you'll be pleased to know that EA Games has just announced their Skate It! game for the Wii and Nintendo DS is now available to buy at a store near you.

The game lets you perform all sorts of skateboard moves just by flicking around the Wii Remote or by using the stylus on the DS. One particularly cool thing about the Wii version, however, is that you can use the Wii Balance Board to control the skateboard within the game. That definitely brings an element of realism to it.

The object of the game is to become Thrasher Magazine's Skater of the Year. Sounds funny, but might also actually be kind of fun. At the very least, this skate-focused game further brings in a sporty feel to Nintendo consoles.

Nintendo DSi titles region-locked: Imports pretty pointless

Nintendo's DSi has been a surprisingly controversial gaming launch, but something a whole lot of people agree is disappointing is that the handheld won't reach the US until "well into" 2009.  Of course, that's nothing particularly new when it comes to slick Japanese games hardware (or software for that matter), but Nintendo have laid a trap for anyone turning the usual salvation, the importer: DSi titles will be region-locked.
