The DS Vision system which enabled users to download movies, manga, and TV shows for a price on the Nintendo DS never quite caught on. Now AM3’s technology is being bundled with anime.
Retailer Rakuten is taking pre-orders for such a package. The Duel Masters box set has 26 episodes, the entire first season of the series, spread out on three microSD cards. Users place the microSD cards into a DS Vision adapter to watch the show on their DS.
Duel Masters may not be your thing, but this looks like the start of a new trend from AM3. Last year they bundled Pokemon movies with the DS Vision adapter. Perhaps, more anime box sets or TV shows packages are in the works.
