Nintendo shuffles DS pack

Slipped dates, new additions.

Nintendo has announced some DS game release targets for early 2007, and slipped a few of its planned Q4 2006 releases into the new year as well.

Mario Slam Basketball (the game known as Mario Hoops 3-on-3 in the US) had been down for a 10th November release, but is now listed as Q1 2007, while both Star Fox Command (previously 24th Nov) and Actionloop (previously 27th Oct) are now due out on 26th January 2007.

It's hardly a barren landscape between now and the end of the year though, with Pokémon Mystery Dungeon and Yoshi's Island 2 still down for 10th November and 1st December respectively, and Tenchu Dark Secret added for 24th November.

Moving into Q1, Nintendo has a wider range of software, including key third-party titles like Children of Mana (Square-Enix) and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice For All (Capcom). Diddy Kong Racing DS, Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis, Pokémon Ranger, Harvest Moon DS and Magical Starsign are all also listed for Q1 2007.

Nintendo also plans to release the pink edition of the DS Lite console itself on 27th October, as previously announced.
