Nintendo DS Tops 10 Million In
The Americas; Nearly 9 Sell Every Minute

20 New Games in First Quarter of
2007

Nintendo DS™ continues to achieve
milestone after milestone. As the fastest-selling video game system in the
world, Nintendo DS now is in the hands of more than 10 million consumers in the
Americas. Since launching in November 2004, nearly nine Nintendo DS or DS Lite
portable game systems have sold  EVERY 60 SECONDS.

"More than 5 million people joined
the ranks as Nintendo DS owners in America last year alone," says Nintendo of
America President Reggie Fils-Aime. "And right now, they’re all saying the same
thing—’give me more!’ Fortunately, no matter your taste or experience in gaming,
that’s exactly what we’re supplying in the months to come."

Following a year in which Nintendo
DS taught the world to play in new ways, the planet’s most popular video game
device will school the cash-fisted buyers in the early months of 2007. Before
March ends, Nintendo will send Diddy Kong® racing, obscure Wario™ in a series of
disguises, challenge you to pimp your robo and lure the most daring into the
dimmest room at Hotel Dusk™. In all, 20 new DS games will launch in the United
States in the first three months of 2007. The full list by launch month:
