New DSi and Wii Titles Available
for Download

This week marks the launch of
Nintendo DSi, the third iteration of the nation’s top-selling portable video
game system. Along with it comes the grand opening of the Nintendo DSi Shop, an
online store where players can redeem Nintendo DSi Points for a wide variety of
games and applications, including Nintendo DSiWare titles. Just as the WiiWare
service does for Wii owners, the Nintendo DSiWare service delivers an
ever-growing library of cool new downloadable content for Nintendo DSi users,
with new games added on Mondays.

For this first edition of Nintendo
Download, we’re pleased to highlight the latest additions to both the Nintendo
DSi Shop and the Wii Shop Channel. You’ll find six Nintendo DSiWare titles to
choose from, including a free Web browser that lets Nintendo DSi owners access
the Internet with a swipe of the stylus. Wii users, meanwhile, will see a fun
new WiiWare game that’s compatible with the Wii Balance Board (sold separately
with Wii Fit), plus a classic exploration game for the Virtual Console.

Nintendo adds new titles to the
Nintendo DSi Shop and the Wii Shop Channel at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Mondays.
Users with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points or Nintendo
DSi Points to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop
Channel. Nintendo DSi Points can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A
Nintendo Points Card can be purchased at retail locations. All Nintendo Points
from one Nintendo Points Card must be redeemed in either the Nintendo DSi Shop
or the Wii Shop Channel. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between
the two systems. This week’s new games are:

Nintendo DSiWare

Nintendo DSi Browser (Nintendo, 1
player, 0 Nintendo DSi Points): Get on the Web with ease using the Nintendo DSi
Browser. Powered by Opera, this simple-to-use Web browser is made specifically
for the Nintendo DSi system, providing a seamless and intuitive browsing
experience that makes the most of the system’s touch controls and two-screen
interface. Check e-mail, get the latest news updates and more – wherever a
wireless Internet connection is available. Just grab your stylus and start

Bird & Beans (Nintendo, 1 player,
Rated E for Everyone, 200 Nintendo DSi Points): In Bird & Beans, you control
Pyoro, a small bird with an elastic tongue and an insatiable appetite for beans.
Scramble to catch beans that fall from the sky, racking up points as you go. The
farther away the bean, the more points it’s worth. Beware any beans that are
missed – they’ll leave a hole in the ground that can’t be crossed, potentially
trapping Pyoro. Bird & Beans also features a second version that enables Pyoro
to spit seeds at high speed, bringing down more beans than ever before. This fun
and fast-paced game requires skill and strategy to master, and always leaves you
wanting to play just one more time.

Master of Illusion Express: Funny
Face (Nintendo, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 200 Nintendo DSi Points): Master
of Illusion Express titles are mind-boggling magic tricks pulled from the
popular Nintendo DS game. Learn the illusions, practice up and amaze your
friends. Master of Illusion Express: Funny Face uses your Nintendo DSi system as
a prop in a card trick. Draw a face on the touch-sensitive screen and astound
your audience as the face tells them which playing card they picked. Also
included is the bonus Vanishing Card trick, which the Nintendo DSi system
performs for your enjoyment.

AQUIA, a fast-paced underwater puzzle game that asks you to think fast and move
even faster. Help a scuba diver reach the ocean’s floor by matching three or
more colored blocks horizontally or vertically. The more blocks you match, the
faster the diver will descend. Fail to clear blocks and the diver’s air supply
will start to run out, causing darkness to creep in from above and cloud your
vision. Race against time in TIMED DIVE, dive deep in FREE DIVE mode or visit
the AQUARIUM to view various sea creatures. Like every game in the Art Style
series, AQUIA features elegant design, polished graphics and pick-up-and-play

wacky challenges simply by moving your face and body as you travel along four
wild roller coasters, hosted by Wario and his pals. Beat the mini-games using
motions ranging from large to small, or play with a friend for even more fun.
Wario even has a few tricks up his sleeve.
