DSiWare Kicks Off Next Week In Japan, Here’s The Launch Lineup

This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

Sitting with a Nintendo DSi and wondering where all the downloadable DSiWare games are? They’re coming. Nearly out of the blue Nintendo announces a slew of them scheduled to come out on December 24. The good news is everyone with a DSi will get more than Brain Training Lite and a Memo pad. Nintendo of Japan’s DSiWare launch line up has Art Style games and a neat looking entry in the Wario Ware series. The bad news is only Nintendo is contributing to the DSiWare lineup at this point. Unlike the WiiWare launch in Japan there aren’t any third party games.
