Nintendo made note of three DSi software titles during their Japanese press conference. The very first item will be the Nintendo DSi Browser, a retooled version of the Opera based Nintendo DS Browser designed for the DSi. The DSi Browser is supposed to be faster than the cartridge version and it won’t cost you $30 bucks either. Nintendo will distribute it for free when the DSi launches in Japan.
The Moving Notepad is another DSi tool. Users can save hand written memos, add sound via the microphone, and make mini-animated movies. Like the Nintendo DSi Browser the Moving Notepad won’t cost you a dime when it comes out later this year.
Small DSi Brain Training For Adults is the only “game” for DSiWare Nintendo brought to their press conference in Japan. Literature and science versions are currently in development with new training modes. Some of them make use of the DSi’s internal camera. Science scavenger hunt anyone? One of the screenshots above suggests you can take a picture with the camera for your Brain Training profile. Nintendo hasn’t announced a price for Small DSi Brain Training For Adults, but by Nintendo’s DSiWare definitions it falls into the “simple puzzle games and other more sophisticated utility tool application” 500 point category.
