Touch Screen, Coin Collecting, Kappa Game Coming To DSiWare

image Nintendo, with the help of Magical Starsign developer Brownie Brown, is making a DSiWare game starring a coin collecting kappa.


In Kappa Michi (Kappa Road) players draw a trail for their kappa to walk on with the stylus. The kappa follows the path unless you tap the scissors icon in the top right to make him stop. You’ll need to do that to stop kappa from walking into enemies and pits. Kappa’s most dangerous enemy is a floating demon hand. If it grabs hold of him the game ends.


On paper, Kappa Michi sounds basic, but the videos look neat. Compared to other DSiWare “games” like the Mario Calculator and Birds & Beans its brilliant. Kappa Michi is slated to be on DSiWare in Japan on December 9 for 500 DSiWare points ($5). No word if Nintendo of America will pick this up yet.

  • The whole draw a path thing reminds me of Zelda Spirit Tracks.
    Also, Brownie Brown needs to stop making small minigames(Even though Fantasy Life piques my curiosity) and do a traditional RPG(I seem to be the only person who liked Magical Starsign).

    Meh, it doesn’t look as fun as the IntSys games released last month.

  • According to Earthbound Central. Octo and a Pigmask from Mother 3 were spotted in the game.

    This game actually sounds pretty fun. But I don’t have a DSi and I don’t plan to get one in the foreseeable future. :/
