Zoonami announces Zendoku for the DS

Zoonami, the Cambridge-based developers, have announced they will be creating a new puzzle game called Zendoku for the DS. Publishing duties for the game will be handled by Eidos Interactive and it is said to combine "exciting puzzle battle action" with Sudoku gameplay. Other details on the title have yet to be revealed, however the press release does confirm wireless multiplayer without elaborating whether said support will include Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connect service or not.

Nintendo sends President Bush DS Lite, Brain Age

This is brilliant.At first glance, you might think we were kidding. We're not. President Bush turns a whole sixty years old tomorrow, and Nintendo of America felt fit to send him a birthday package of their own creation: a white DS Lite, a copy of Brain Age: Train Your Brain For Minutes A Day, and a nice congratulatory letter (read it after the break).

Aside from being absolutely ridiculous (guy at Nintendo who thought to do this, I love you), one must wonder if President Bush will receive the package personally and actually attempt to play a round. Just think! With rigorous training, President Bush may usher in a new era of world peace! Sudoku transcends all cultural barriers.

Marketing genius, Nintendo. I wonder what his initial Brain Age would be... (watches as the commenters rush to post the largest number they know)

Once again, the full letter from Nintendo after the break.

Upcoming DS games dated [Update 1]

No doubt attempting to organize the masses of people who constantly barge into stores at random intervals and demand games that aren't due for release in months, Nintendo has sent out a handy "release list" thing. If we understand this correctly, it's supposed to tell you on which day some of their major DS games will be set loose upon the public. That's Nintendo for you--always innovating.

June 5: Big Brain Academy™
June 5: Magnetica™
June 11: Nintendo DS™ Lite (although that depends on where you're shopping)
June 26: Sudoku Gridmaster
Aug. 28: Star Fox DS
Sept. 18: Pokémon® Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team
Sept. 25: Mario vs. Donkey Kong™ 2: March of the Minis
Oct. 9: Clubhouse Games™
Oct. 30: Children of Mana

Sadly, it looks like the new Kirby game and Yoshi's Island 2 will only be released during or after the cheerfully explosive holiday season. Don't let that stop you from demanding it from the store clerk next week.

[Update: To clear up any confusion - this list encompasses Nintendo titles only.]

Brain Maiming: New Sudoku game

Nintendo sends word regarding a matter of gray importance: Sudoku. Not to be confused with the murderous little Japanese girl that crawls out of the television on a weekly basis (that would be Sadako), the puzzle game has addicted many with its gentle massaging of that most intelligent and squishy of organs, the brain. With 400 different puzzles (all selected by the original creators of Sudoku), however, Sudoku Gridmaster is likely to be less of a massage and more of a brutal mashing.

Not content with sticking some Sudoku puzzles in the upcoming Brain Age, Nintendo is releasing a stand-alone title featuring four difficulty settings and input via the touch screen. If you're keen on subjecting your brain to that sort of thing, make a mental note of Sudoku Gridmaster's June 26 release date.
