Art Style DSiWare Game Decoded For International Release

By Spencer . March 16, 2009 . 8:23am

arts After working on Chibi Robo and Captain Rainbow, Skip focused their efforts on Nintendo’s Art Style series. Three Art Style games have been released on WiiWare domestically: Orbient, Cubello, Rotohex. Strangely none of them have been released in Japan. Skip’s home country got their first taste of Art Style from the DSiWare store.


Decode, a puzzle game where you arrange groups of numbers so their sum is ten, was one of the first Art Style games for the Nintendo DSi. Looks like it’s going to be one of the first Art Style DSiWare games to come overseas too. The OFLC rated D-Code with Skip as the designer and Nintendo as the publisher. Sounds an awful like the “Decode” game currently on Japan’s DSiWare store and unless the two companies are working on a strikingly similar sounding project we’re going to see Decode released internationally as D-code.

  • Yay! But what about the rest of them?

    • Chances are more of them, if not all of the Art Style DSiWare games, will be localized. Nintendo hasn’t officially announced any of them yet though. D-Code just happened to be the first one to percolate outside of an official announcement.

      • I didn’t doubt for a second that Nintendo would deny the rest of the world the entire Art Style series. I just assumed that they would be revealed in sets of two, as they were in Japan.

    I want Hacolife.

    But I don’t want to buy a DSi. :/
