505 Games' DSi line-up

Hair Salon to be a DSi exclusive; Little Book of Big Secrets to support the DSi camera.

Milton Keynes, 10th September 2009. 505 Games have today unveiled their plans to publish a Nintendo DSi™ exclusive title in Europe. Along with this, 505 Games will also launch a Nintendo DS™ title which delivers Nintendo DSi compatible content. Both games will be available at retail in time for the Christmas sales period.

“The new Nintendo DSi functionality provides a fantastic opportunity to deliver exclusive content to the consumer.” Commented Tim Woodley, Head of global brand. “Being one of the first publishers in Europe to bring a title to market exclusively on the Nintendo DSi is a fantastic way for 505 Games to get ahead of the game.”

Hair Salon, developed by Sonic Powered will be 505’s first title to be released exclusively on the Nintendo DSi. It makes full use of the Nintendo DSi camera function and is the perfect game for girls of all ages who are interested in the world of hair and make-up. By using the built in camera you can take photos of yourself or friends and create brand new looks and styles. You can even become a character in the game! Hair Salon is also the first game to use Automatic Face Recognition – position your face correctly and the game will automatically take your picture ensuring the perfect shot every time.

Legend Studios’ Little Book of Big Secrets is a treasure trove of fantastic applications and mini-games which will keep young minds busy for hours. Little Book of Big Secrets enables you to customise and create your very own unique diary as well as being the perfect place to store personal information, contacts and dates. Using the Nintendo DSi camera you can take pictures of friends and upload them to your contacts page, create funny photos with the sticker function or even decorate a photo of your room!

Hair Salon will be available exclusively on Nintendo DSi on 13th November closely followed by Little Book of Big Secrets on Nintendo DS. For all the latest information please visit
