DSiWare Domo Games Are Actually GBA Games

image Nintendo released (maybe we should say “re-released”) five mini-games starring Japan Broadcasting Corporation’s mascot Domo-kun. While Crash-Course Domo and White-Water Domo are new for us, they were originally part of a Game Boy Advance game.

 

Notice how the copyright information says 2002 and 2009? Nintendo and Suzak also released Domo-kun’s Mysterious TV for the Game Boy Advance in 2002. Their Domo-kun title was a mini-game compilation.

 

Those mini-games were chopped up, upgraded with menus on the top screen, and sold individually as the five Domo-kun games available now.

 

Take a look at Rock-n-Roll Domo when it was on the Game Boy Advance.

 

 

And here’s the DSiWare version:

It seems like Nintendo has a system ready to remaster and re-release Game Boy Advance games for the DSi. Are there any Japan-only GBA games we missed out on that you would like to see overseas as DSiWare downloads?
