A DS Game Cafe Would Be Interesting…

A cafe where patrons sip lattes and play with their Nintendo DS? That could be a neat hangout. Maybe Nintendo is thinking of one since they filed a trademarks for DS Gamecafe in Japan.

Monster Hunter fans and other ad-hoc PSP gamers already have a hangout in Asia, it’s called McDonalds. Nintendo DS owners stop by there too, usually to collect Pok√©mon presents from Mac de DS spots.


Nintendo could benefit from a DS-only game cafe, though, especially if it was for Nintendo 3DS. That way people could see the glasses-free 3D effects for themselves. Also, a cafe would make the Crosspass features much more useful since people could gather in one place to trade data.

  • And you can materialize the french fries with the 3DS’s cameras, and eat them!

  • Wish I had such places to hang out where I live, but it seems that in my town, I’m the only one interested in such games that offer in-depth multiplayer on Nintendo DS and PSP (e.g. Dragon Quest IX, God Eater, Monster Hunter, etc).

  • We do a similar thing in London, it’s called the DS Meet. Basically, a large group meet up in a pub and play DS. 8 player Mario Kart, Bomberman, Tetris and beer make a surprisingly good evening.

    Will be interesting to see how this takes off in Japan.
