DSi Ware to launch in Japan this month

With nine brand new titles.

Nintendo is set to launch the new DSi Ware game download service in Japan this month.

It's launching on 24th December, to be precise. Merry Christmas, everyone in Japan.

Titles available at launch will include Moving Memo Book, which lets you use your DSi to take notes and make comic strips using the camera. It's free of charge.

For 200 Nintendo Points (GBP 1.50 / EUR 2) you'll be able to pick up games such as Paper Airplane (as previously seen in Made in Wario) and Bird and Beans. Then there are three titles based around Magic Taizen - Funny Face, Scary Numbers and Three Shuffle Games.

In the 500 Points (GBP 3.75 / EUR 10) category you'll find A Little Dr. Mario, a new version of the classic puzzler, and Simple Trumps, a selection of card games based on the Daredemo Asobi Taizen Collection.

There's also Art Style Aquario, where you line up coloured blocks, and Art Style Decode, a number puzzler. Rounding out the launch line-up is Utsusu Made in Wario, in which lets you use a picture of yourself for your character in a variety of mini-games.

All the titles are being brought to you by Nintendo, with no third-party offerings announced as yet. And there's still no word on when DSi Ware will make it to Europe.
