Nintendo is proudly boasting that it won't be waiting until E3
to reveal some of their biggest upcoming games. The new DS announcements for today are Kirby Super Star Ultra
and Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir
, both with new screens in the galleries below!
As a remake of the original SNES favorite
will use the touch screen to breathe new life into the existing mini-game compilation. Yeah, if the DS does anything well, it's mini-games. It'll be a totally revamped experience, with new Revenge of the King and Meta Knight Ultra modes in the works, including local wireless play. Kirby
has done everything right so far on the DS, so we should expect greatness from the little pink blob on September 29th.
<insert witty segue here>
Yes, yes -- another mystery adventure game
is on the way in the form of MillionHeir
. Get over that delightful play on words, and check out some of the previous games in the Mystery Case Files
range. The DS entry will be a "painted scene" point-and-click adventure, where a cluey detective needs to find the rightful heir to a fortune. It seems like the standard pixel-hunt for inventory items and evidence -- but a multiplayer mode is also included, which is a pretty nifty addition for an adventure game. MillionHeir
hits the stores on September 8th.
