The news has been out about the new Nintendo DS, and new Nintendo wii console game releases for 2009.

Nintendo had announced the complete projected schedule for all Wii and DS titles releases for the first quarter of 2009. While last Q1 saw the megaton release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, this year Nintendo-published titles are not as rampant. But is complimented by the fact that some of the gaming industry giants are releasing a series of cross platform titles in 2009. The Wii de Asobu series is aimed to be positioned as the New Play Control series, so Nintendo Gamers can get Wii-vamped Mario Power Tennis and Pikmin soon.

On Nintendo DS, we have Personal Trainer: Math, which is kind of entertainingly academical and also a match for die hard Pokemon Platinum fans. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is proving to be contender for the hot list of games as well.

Nintendo’s first-party efforts are of course exciting enough, and the good news is that lots of interesting third-party games were slated for the Q1 window. The list goes on with Onechanbara, Little King’s Story in the Puzzling Adventure, MadWorld, Henry Hatsworth, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time and more. The development looks more promising for Wii and DS games than last year.

New releases also include an additional play control, Pikmin and Mario Power Tennis for Wii, Fire Emblem for Nintendo DS. Continuing it’s commitment to create fun and highly engaging entertainment for everyone, Nintendo of America Inc. unleashed a broad list of exciting new games for the first quarter of 2009 as announced on 17th Nov’2008. Topping the hot list is Pokemon” Platinum version for Nintendo DS”, a remarkable new entry in the most successful Pokemon series. Nintendo’s roster of more than 100 new games is an impressive culmination of challenges and experiences for all loyal customers and new ones. Mentionable titles include the enhanced new play control, Mario Power Tennis, Pikmin for Wii, Personal Trainer: Math and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Fire Emblem, Shadow Dragon for Nintendo DS.

“Our fans expect a diverse selection of entertainment options, and we’re eager to deliver exactly that”, were the words of Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. He also confidently added, “We’re building on the momentum of a strong holiday season by offering new and experienced players an even greater library of game titles in 2009″.

Pokemon, one of the iconic game series which started from a 2-D format has come a long way. Pokemon lovers in particular have a lot to cheer about. As a follow up of the vastly popular Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl games, Pokemon Platinum is the newest in the core series. This game features new adventurous stories, never-before-seen manifestations of powerful Pokemon including the legendary Giratina’s Origin Forme and the Distortion World, a mysterious new world that suddenly appears in the Sinnoh region. The excitement doesn’t stop at this. Up to 20 players can interact with other Pokemon fans from around the world using the the new Wi-Fi Plaza, featuring mini-games and activities. Players can also enjoy the new features in the Global Terminal. For example, by posting battle videos using the new “Vs. Recorder.” In addition, Pokemon Platinum features a new Battle Frontier, where the gamers can test their skills in toughest possible ways. Pokemon Platinum has already broken previous Nintendo DS sales records in Japan, by selling more than 1 million copies in the first two days of release.

For the portable Nintendo DS, Personal Trainer: Math is a twist in the tale. It is special because it is academically oriented, allowing the players to sharpen their brain power. Thus enriching their lives and helping them learn new skills in fun and interesting ways. Personal Trainer: Math introduces 40 fast-paced exercises to give gamers the most entertaining way to improve their arithmetic skills. Also for Nintendo DS, the Fire Emblem loyalists will also enjoy the arrival of new Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, a re-designed version of the NES classic, featuring touch-screen controls. Players with a broadband Internet connection can enjoy worldwide battles over Nintendo’s online gaming service as well.

For the Wii console, Nintendo has two classic Nintendo GameCube games to offer, namely Mario Power Tennis and New Play Control. The enhanced New Play Control- Pikmin game allows players to point the Wii Remote controller at the screen and use it as a cursor, thus making it easy to select either a single Pikmin or an entire fleet of army. If a player tosses Pikmin, they fly wherever the cursor is pointed at. New Play Control Mario Power Tennis has it’s their favorite characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, complete with motion-controlled serves and swings. What is more exciting is that with Wii controls, players can literally swing the Wii Remote controller to hit forehands and backhands and to apply spin as well. Experienced gamers can also attach a Nunchuk controller to imitate real life action.

Third-party developers continue to bring diverse, creative games like Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time from Square-Enix for Wii and Nintendo DS.
