Japanese Nintendo DS™ software lineup - 12 Japanese titles shipping on release - preorders opened

Precisely 8 weeks prior the official launch in Japan, Nintendo has finally revealed details of Nintendo DS™ launch titles. A total of 12 games have been announced to ship on December 2nd, 2004; 5 games published by Nintendo of Japan itself as well as another 7 games by third party developers.

We have started taking preorders for all 12 titles, as well as another game published 3 weeks later (on December 24th). As expected by us, pricing has been confirmed to remain comparable to standard Gameboy Advance™ games at the usual Y4,800 price tag, which is reflected at US$ 48.90 at Play-Asia.com.

Unfortunately Nintendo's reworked official Nintendo DS™ website appears to be a bit busy at the moment, so information on most titles is a bit limited, however we will post more detailed information as well as the remaining announced titles that are still listed without confirmed release date in the next few days.

Japanese Nintendo DS™ launch titles:

  • Super Mario 64 DS
  • Touch! Made in Wario
  • Pokemon Dash
  • Band Brothers
  • Hitofude
  • Zoo Keeper
  • Kimi no Tame Nara Shineru
  • The Urbz: Sims in the City
  • Mr Driller DS
  • Tendo Dokuta
  • Cool104Joker & Setline
  • Majan Taikai
  • Puyo Puyo Fever (December 24th)

    Not to forget, preorders for the Nintendo DS™ system itself are still welcome at US$ 169.90 for either the US version as well as Japanese version. We further anticipate to start taking preorders for a limited amount of US launch titles within the next few days.
