Nintendo DS in November!
The next Nintendo handheld console, the Nintendo DS, will be released in the US on November 21st, 2004. Japan will get Nintendo DS soon after that, on December 2nd, 2004. No surprise here, as Nintendo hopes that the holiday season will bring many sales to it's new handheld. Europe/Australia is expected to have a release date of early 2005. The retail price for the US is $149.99.
A Pokemon game on the Nintendo DS is inevitable, in fact, we already had confirmation from Pokemon game makers that they're working on a Pokemon game for Nintendo DS (any new updates about that will be posted here in the news).
For those that don't know, the Nintendo DS uses two separate screens to play games. There's many advantages to this, for example, instead of having a map (such as race course maps in racing games) on the top right corner or whatever, it can be on a seperate screen so it doesn't clog up the screen. But you can expect game makers to create many different way to use the dual screen feature.
