Happy Nintendo Wednesday everyone! Following the company's revelations of DS web browsing shenanigans and TV tuning escapades, it's our duty to bring you some juicy DS software nuggets too. Unfortunately, when we say nuggets, we're not joking - expect a single paragraph news belch to follow.
To kick off, New Super Mario Bros. for DS, Nintendo's first proper 2D Mario platformer since either Super Mario World or Yoshi's Island (depending on your quantitive methodology), is now scheduled for Japanese release this May - somewhat surprisingly, given the veil of secrecy surrounding the title up to this point. The game combines traditional 2D environments with some very impressive looking 3D models and, it goes without saying, we're more than a little excited about the whole thing.
Furthermore, in a surprise third paragraph, the company also announced that Konami's competition-flattening Winning Eleven series (Pro Evolution Soccer in the West) is scheduled to hit the DS soon. Although not much is known about the title at the moment, Nintendo did confirm that the game will feature online play utilising its Wi-fi Connection service. Knickers: officially damp.
