Confirmed by the big N, this external microphone/earpiece (we'll just call it a headset) will be releasing to the Japanese gaming public come September 14th for roughly $10 American. Rumor has it that the headset is going to be utilized by the upcoming
cash cow Pokemon Diamond/Pearl
, which will allow for full voice chat. Personally, we'd like for it to release a bit earlier, say right around the time Starfox Command
comes out. Now there's a game that could benefit from the use of a headset!
