Card Hero Brings Wireless Card Battles To DSiWare

By Spencer . July 27, 2009 . 2:15pm

image Nintendo is sort of re-releasing Kousoku Card Hero, which came out a year and a half ago as a retail DS game. A trimmed version called Card Hero Speed Battle Custom is coming to DSiWare this week for 800 DSiWare points ($8).


The DSiWare adaptation uses the battle system from Kousoku Card Hero and even includes online play. However, it looks like Nintendo stripped the single player mode down to a few CPU battles found in the battle room.


But, who cares about that. Card battle games are designed for humans, not a human and a CPU.


There is a super special bonus for Card Hero fans that purchase Speed Battle Custom (or borrow the game from a friend). If you have Kousoku Card Hero in your DSi and load Card Hero Speed Battle Custom you get 1,000 points to purchase cards from Maruhige’s shop and a rare card.


No word if this is coming to North America, but Nintendo registered a trademark for Card Hero a few months ago.

    Sweet deal. I really hope both come out in the west, maybe they will release roughly the same time and advertise them together?

    • Eh… I wouldn’t get my hopes up. If Nintendo releases the DSiWare version I think that would be considered a victory!

  • MadMirko

    That’s pretty nice. Will it be released under the “Chotto … / A little …” line?

    • fuzakeke

      I never got this meme.

    • No, it’s just Card Hero Speed Battle Custom. I think the Chotto line is reserved for puzzle games and Touch Generations kinds of things.

  • Kind of off the subject question: Does anyone know if Capcom vs SNK Card Fighters DS game had a downloadable patch for the glitch (US Ver)? I know you could send your carts in (probably still can) but I never did and I’m craving to play again.
