DS releases for the week of May 15th

Super MarioThere are a couple of new games for the DS fanboys this week, but there's only one that everyone's talking about.  In a word: Mario! After 20 years, we still love him (I guess we still love them if you include his lesser brother, Luigi). 

DS Releases

  • New Super Mario Bros.
  • X-Men: The Official Game

Gameboy Advance

  • Backyard Baseball 2007
  • Tringo
  • X-Men: The Official Game

1. WooHoo!! It's finally here, can't wait to play it, I've needed a new DS game lately.

2. It doesn't seem like it's coming out already~ I'm more than ready for it. Although, this means I need to retire yet another DS game from my case ;_; I love and play them all.

3. Traded in my PSP (that was gathering dust) for a DS Lite recently. I've been hooked on the only game I bought so far, Mario Kart. Can't wait to pick up the New SMB.

4. You guys didn't get the DS lite in the US yet, but in Japan, we have to wait 10 more days for the new Mario :-(

5. Or you can get it via importers like liksang or renchi.com, anyway, they have a reivew of the game, and I can't wait to get my hands on mine... mario rules...

6. Aw, poor Luigi. He's the best.

7. Why bother getting this on release. Didn't Reggie say in an interview that this Super Mario would be unplayable on the phat DS (too dark), yet we (in the US) won't get our mitts on DS Lite for nearly another month. Doesn't make much sense. Shouldn't they be simaltaneous US launch?

8. uh....yeah. the new mario game is playable on ALL ds systems. to think it wouldn't play on the original ds is just stupid

9. His "lesser" brother, Luigi? Ouch for the big L. It's ain't easy being green.

10. The old DS is plenty bright to play any games. Even the old Castlevania GBA game.

But the new Lite really is super bright compared to it.

12. None of the places I went to have NSMB yet :(

Posted at 2:54PM on May 15th 2006 by Wemblers

13. FINALLY!!!

And yay for Luigi!

14. "I guess we still love them if you include his lesser brother, Luigi"

Ouch, Luigi needs a new image. Maybe even his own DS game.

Posted at 3:37PM on May 15th 2006 by Marc

15. I can't believe anyone fell for the April fool's joke :)

Posted at 3:48PM on May 15th 2006 by jonesey

16. Have anybody already played Mario? What impressions?

Posted at 4:06PM on May 15th 2006 by Acne-30

17. For some strange reason, Walmart had this game before Gamestop, and it's pretty awesome. I'm not very far yet, but I'm having a blast. It's better than getting my arse handed to me in Lost Magic online.

Posted at 4:35PM on May 15th 2006 by Linda

18. Bummer! No Mario at Best Buy or Malwart yet... Maybe Tuesday?

Posted at 6:05PM on May 15th 2006 by floatch

19. The Japanese Box art looks better because both Mario and Luigi are small lol.

Posted at 6:44PM on May 15th 2006 by Tj

20. Hey, does anybody know how to submit stuff to dsfanboy? Or if the editors are reading this could you please let me know?
