Lets Play with the Fishes: Aqua Zone DS Ocean Fish, Details and Screens Revealed

By feeding and taking care of your fish everyday in “Sakana to Asobou! Aqua Zone DS Kaisuigyo”, you’ll be able to earn points. These points increase the range and number of fish you can keep as well as unlock items to put inside your tank. Occasionally bottles with messages in them will also appear inside the tank giving you “special tasks” to complete, allowing you to earn larger number of points.

As time goes by your friendship level with the fishes will change too. With a good friendship level, you’ll be able to use various actions to communicate with the fish such as tapping the screen to make them gather together. There are also mini games such as guiding your fish through bubbles.

Due sometime in December from Gungho Online Entertainment. Ragnarok Online DS shouldn’t be too far off then!


It’s a Wonderful World DS Protector Case and Stylus Pack from Hori

If you don’t manage to get your hands on the Wonderful World Edition DS package or, just don’t want to fork out for another DS Lite, here’s another option for you. Available from July 27th, Hori will be releasing a “Subarashiki Kono Sekai Accessory Set” containing a protector casing for your DS and an extendable original stylus for a price of 1449 Yen (US$12).

Only a week before the game is out!


While we’re talking about Hori’s great range of gaming accessories, let me take the opportunity to remind people there are fake Hori branded DS screen protectors floating about on the internet, particularly auction sites. Check out Hori’s notice page for photos of the counterfeit products marked “A” and “B”.

Game of Life DS: The Heisei & Shouwa Era, Experience Life since the Early 19th Century

In case you’re wondering, the traditional Japanese like to name time periods after their reigning emperor. Currently, it’s the Heisei Era which started in 1989. This year 2007 is referred to as Heisei 19, which basically means the Japanese emperor Akihito’s 19th year of ruling.

Culture note aside, there will be two versions of “Jinsei Game DS”. One will be set in the Heisei Era and other in the Shouwa Era (1926~1989). There will be support for up to 4 players via wireless allowing owners of either version to link up, over 5000 questions available, life events and also your very own customisable character.

Due Autumn 2007 from Takara Tomy.


Sega to Produce New Doraemon DS Game Based on 2008 Movie

Unlike the previous two DS games, “Doraemon Nobita to Midori no Kyojinden DS” isn’t going to be a card game but a platformer it seems. Not much detail have been revealed about the game other than it will be based on Doraemon’s next movie, “Nobita and the Legend of the Green Giant” which is out next year in 2008, March.

At the same time, a Wii game has also been announced featuring a bundle of mini games and a board game that make use of the Wiimote.


I just hope the platformer will be as fun as the 1992 Game Boy game, “Animal Wakusei no Densetsu“. And being the fan I am, can’t wait to see the movies!

The Wii title, “Doraemon Wii: Himitsu Douguoh Ketteisen!” is due Winter 2007 and the DS title is due Spring 2008.
