The one magical light that Nintendo shines upon us hardcore fellows is its compact handheld that comes in a rainbow of happy colors. They seem to be onto its success as well, making multiple versions of the handheld including the camera-packed DSi and the DSXL in Japan apparently for older people that like bigger things so that they can see them. That's the implication... kind of mean... I think the older folks should hit Nintendo with a broomstick... if they can see them.


Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Publisher: Square Enix
Genre: RPG
MSRP: $39.99
 

Square-Enix, otherwise known as "Squeenix" by its inconsolable fans, hasn't been very successful with its console outings aside from Final Fantasy, but the DS seems to its redeeming point. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days continues that tradition, though I think Square Enix Japan needs to reconsider their stance on titles in America that involve math.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Publisher: Nintendo
Genre: RPG
MSRP: $34.99
 

Mario RPGs always serve as a great introduction to the genre for kids and the otherwise inexperienced. Even for veterans like me, it's always pleasant to take a journey back to the days when item fusion wasn't an unnecessary necessity. And really, who doesn't want to see Mario and Luigi all rumbly in Bowser's tumbly?

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

Publisher: Nintendo
Genre: Puzzle
MSRP: $29.99
 

Not every game needs to be slaughtering indiscriminate monsters for experience, items, and gold. No, some games can be about collecting picarats instead! Okay, so you actually go around quaint villages solving people's math homework, but hey, kids (I'm also pointing at you) probably aren't using their brains enough anyway.

Peggle: Dual Shot

Publisher: PopCap
Genre: Puzzle
MSRP: $19.99
 
Don't even try to comprehend it. The reason Americans find Japanese pachinko with cute animal characters addictive cannot be found. And if you're trying to find it, wouldn't you rather be playing Peggle instead?

Personal Trainer Cooking

Publisher: Nintendo
Genre: Edutainment
MSRP: $29.99
 

Let's face it, some people are so busy gaming with their DS that they don't know how to cook. And you probably know a food newbie who has a DS but hardly ever uses it (like, say, an Asian college student). Personal Trainer Cooking is the interactive recipe book that they've always wanted but never knew it.
