Crayon Shin-Chan moves to the DS

After appearing in a Wii launch game, the mischievous anime star is going on the DS. Crayon Shin-Chan DS: Arashi o Yobu is being made by Banpresto who also made the Wii party game. However, Shin-Chan DS isn’t a party game. It’s a platformer where Shin-Chan can don different costumes to pass levels. When Shin-Chan wears the snail costume he can crawl up walls and if he wears the kangaroo costume he can jump high. There is also a new coloring system that uses the touch screen. The screenshots below show how the traffic light can be colored in red to let the car with Shin-Chan and Misae pass through.

    I’m sensing a strong vibe from Kid Chameleon from this latest Shin-Chan title, with the whole gameplay concept of wearing different outfits to transverse from level to level.

    As a matter of fact, Kid Chameleon was a long but forgotten Genesis title that’s overdue for a re-release on Nintendo’s Virtual Console. Now that’s definitely a title which will benefit from a port (thanks to the VC’s option of saving games before shutting off the console, the original had no option for saving or even a password feature), as its almost impossible to beat the game in one sitting because of all the different stages to get through.

    At the very least, Shin-Chan DS is actually the first title from the franchise that I’m willing to import once its released; along with Wario: Master of Disguise using a similar concept of donning different outfits these two games can be considered “spiritual” successors to Kid Chameleon.

    The person in the car with him is Nanako not Misae. I have the game. And in the show that’s also Nanako.
