DS Web Browser, TV tuner revealed

Well, Nintendo's big DS press conference in Japan has come and gone, with the fallout raining down upon us like a torrent of delicious, bite-sized candy. Though the main purpose of the conference was to parade the extraordinarily beautiful DS Lite about, Nintendo also took the opportunity to unveil some exciting new add-ons.

As many of our readers correctly predicted, the melancholy and overly dramatic Internet browser, Opera, is indeed being released for the DS! Launching in June for approximately $30, the Opera browser is a fully featured, non-firmware web browser adapted to display pages on both screens and allow for stylus-based input. Yay!

Nintendo also revealed a TV tuner add-on that simply plugs into the DS card slot and beams television programming straight to your portable. Though the chances of this little device making it to the West are slightly slimmer than the web browser, don't count it out just yet.

Other points of note regarding the conference:
  • The New Super Mario Bros. game will be released in Japan this May.
  • Tetris DS will sell at a budget price.
  • Calligraphy Training is coming to the DS, doing for the hand what Brain Training did for the mind.
  • New footage of Xenosaga Episode 1-2 and Children of Mana was shown.
  • Super Robot Wars, Dynasty Warriors and Winning Eleven 9, oh my! The last two will be using the Wi-Fi connection.
Well, I guess we'd better get working on a DS-optimized version of DS Fanboy.
