Nintendo has outlined its DS release schedule for the second half of 2006, pinning down a number of titles including Yoshi's Island 2, English Training, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and the Opera web-browser.

Yoshi's Island 2 will arrive latest, on December 1st, but in the meantime we can look forward to the Opera browser on October 6th, Mario Slam Basketball and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon on November 10th, and Hotel Dusk on November 24th.

Sadly there's no more news on when we can expect Harvest Moon DS - we're just told it's due out in Q4.

The same goes for Nintendo's Cube schedule, or what's left of it, with Zelda down for Q4 along with the other Harvest Moon title, Magical Melody. There's no sign of Super Paper Mario on the schedule, despite the game's confirmed October 9th US date.

There's only one other item of note really, and that's the enigmatic inclusion of "42 All-Time Classics" for release on September 29th. We've asked Nintendo what all that's about, so we'll let you know when we do.

Update: Which is now. 42 All-Time Classics is known as Game Fortune Bag (Daredemo Asobi Taizen) in Japan and Clubhouse Games in the US. It features various board, card and party games like draughts, darts and poker. You can read more about it in our DS game E3 round-up.
