Nintendo of America issued a surge of new information today about what
consumers can expect from the company in the coming months. Let’s get
right to it:
The new Nintendo DSi XL™ hand-held system
launches March 28 at a suggested retail price of $189.99. The screens
of the Nintendo DSi XL are 93 percent larger than those of the
Nintendo DS™ Lite model, providing a more vivid and
engaging play experience. The screens of the Nintendo DSi XL also
feature a wider viewing angle, letting friends and family members join
the fun. The new system launches in both Burgundy and Bronze colors,
and comes loaded with pre-installed premium software Brain Age™
Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math and Photo
Clock, as well as two free applications: the Nintendo DSi Browser
and Flipnote Studio™. Nintendo DSi XL will also come
with a larger pen-like stylus that allows for a more comfortable grip
and enhanced ease of use when playing games that use the Nintendo DS
touch screen. America’s Test Kitchen: Let’s Get Cooking and WarioWare™:
D.I.Y. will also launch for the Nintendo DS family of products on
March 28, providing consumers with new content that can be enjoyed on
any Nintendo DS system. Games like these demonstrate the enhanced
experience available with the Nintendo DSi XL.
Super Mario Galaxy™ 2,
the sequel to the smash-hit galaxy-hopping original game, launches May
23 for the Wii™ console. The game includes the amazing
gravity-defying, physics-based exploration from the first game, but is
loaded with entirely new galaxies and features to challenge and
delight players. On some stages, Mario™ can pair up with
his dinosaur buddy Yoshi™ and use his tongue to grab items
and spit them back at enemies. Players can also have fun with new
items such as a drill that lets our hero tunnel through solid rock.
Metroid™: Other M, the
incredible new Metroid game developed for Wii through a
collaboration by Nintendo and the world-renowned Team Ninja, launches
June 27. The game looks at the classic franchise from a new
perspective: While much of the game is reminiscent of 2-D
side-scrollers, players can switch the perspective into 3-D at any
time as they explore the twisting passages of a derelict space station
and delve deep into a cinematic, never-before-told story of bounty
hunter Samus Aran’s past. This new approach uses a new control scheme
in which players use the Wii Remote™ controller held
sideways to battle enemies and navigate the expansive, gorgeous
environments in classic Metroid fashion, then aim at the screen
with the Wii Remote pointer to blast foes in first-person and hunt the
world for clues and hidden passages.
In a unique partnership with Square-Enix, Nintendo of America will
publish Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies

two playable characters and international online leaderboards to track
high scores. Using the Wii Remote pointer functionality, the game
offers unprecedented precision in the shooter genre.
