Populous teases us with website

The Japanese site for Populous DS has risen from the bottom of the tubes we call the internet and has thrust itself out there for all to see. In checking out what it has to offer, we found that there isn't really anything there right now. You can check out a couple of screens (which you have probably already seen before) and try to make sense of all the kanji there, should you choose. Or, you can just keep reading DS Fanboy and we'll update you as to when the site has some real content.

Welcome to the new

The rumor from a couple of days ago is true: Nintendo's website has gotten itself a little makeover. And, just as we showed then, the front page has a lot of white space. But, it's very easy to navigate, so getting around there should be no problem for you. For those looking for the return of the Nsider forums, however, you can just get back to crying in the dark corner you've called home for the last few months.

Sneak peek at the new

Some folks are finding Nintendo's website to be loading a bit differently. We knew Nintendo was getting an overhaul (which is why they shut down the forums), but we didn't think it would be so soon. While it isn't loading in the new layout you see above for us, apparently it's working just fine for other folk. We suggest you head on over and give it a whirl.

Any comments on the new layout? Good? Bad?

Homebrew: Okiwi web browser

Pedro J. Estébanez, a homebrewster who we assume is too frugal to purchase the already-available Opera browser, is apparently hard at work on creating a homebrew browser. Meant to cost users nothing, this browser, dubbed Okiwi, is to support .pdf files, JavaScript, file uploading, as well as a few other features. No word on release date as of right now.

[Thanks Steve!]

Opera announces browser release date for Japan

Releasing to the Japanese gaming public on July 24th, the Opera web browser for the DS will initially only be sold online for 3,800 Yen (around $33 US) and come standard with a memory expansion pack. Nothing has been said as to release date for US launch of the browser, but we assume we'll be hearing more once July 24th hits and Japanese impressions are measured.

DS browser screenshots

Some shots for the anticipated Opera browser that is slated to hit a DS near you soon have hit the net, and although there are only 3 of them, we likes what we sees. It appears the browser will be utilized to its maximum potential through the touch screen for both inputting text and zooming in on pages, which is not new news, but seeing it in the flesh makes it a much more appealing prospect. Personally, I'm a Firefox user, but I can see myself giving this a go.

What say you fine readers?

[Thanks jah75157!]
