Nintendo doing more Mario & Luigi for DS

And a pedometer, among other things.

Nintendo unveiled a third Mario & Luigi RPG yesterday, during a showreel of upcoming DS titles. (We did write about this at the time, but apparently there was "a technical hitch" and you never got to read the item. Everyone responsible has been framed for murder.)

The game will sit on Japanese shelves sometime next year, and looks much the same as the acclaimed Partners in Time: lots of cartoony escapades involving kicking shells at baddies in turn-based battles. Looks like Bowser's involved again too.

The showreel also featured plenty of other DS treats, including a game called Know by Walking: Life Rhythm DS, which makes use of a special pedometer peripheral.

On top of that are a brand new Professor Layton and Harvest Moon, plus plenty of role-playing excursions.

The full list of games shown (in order) follows, courtesy of NeoGAF, with Japanese dates added where applicable. This is best viewed side-by-side with the conference showreel.
