The world's pre-eminent crossword puzzle brand debuts on the Nintendo DS this month as Majesco Entertainment Company today shipped The New York Times Crosswords. Developed by Budcat Creations, The New York Times Crosswords features more than 1,000 genuine puzzles direct from The New York Times archive.

"Given the broad and growing demographic of the DS audience, we think The New York Times Crosswords has terrific potential," said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing. "Handwriting recognition and system portability make the title a natural fit for the DS, while the 4-player cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes add a new dimension to the social nature of puzzle solving."

The New York Times Crosswords features more than 1,000 real crossword puzzles and the unique ability to write in answers with the stylus or use a Touch Screen keyboard to enter letters. Various modes of play include Puzzle Me Quick for a fast word fix; Puzzle Week for extended play with progressive difficulty; or Challenge mode with adjustable time and difficulty settings.
