Ridge Racer DS 3rd June

Experience the race of your life as Ridge Racer comes to Nintendo DS with all the fast-paced action of the original arcade legend. The innovative Touch Screen allows for the ultimate steering control on 20 challenging courses set across a wide range of environments.

Race against the computer in a variety of single-player modes including Quick Play, Grand Prix and Car Attack, or take on up to six friends in the wireless multiplayer mode. Ridge Racer DS also features a wireless DS Download Play mode where up to five other people can enjoy multiplayer fun with only one game card.

PAC-PIX 20th May

The world's most famous bright yellow ball is back and this time he is hungrier than ever before! Trapped inside a mysterious cursed book Pac-Man finds himself once again battling ghosts to survive. However, this time players can actually draw their own Pac-Man on the touch screen and watch him self-animate. Players have almost complete freedom to determine where Pac-Man goes and how. Using the game stylus they must sketch arrows and even bombs to help guide our hero around the screen, munching on ghosts on route to the switch found-on each level. Hitting this opens a path on the top-screen called the Item Road, where players can collect special items.

With a huge selection of stages and bosses to overcome, players will have their work cut-out for them as they sketch and scribble their way through this exciting new game. You are bound to draw your own conclusions about PAC-PIX but it is definitely one to pencil into your diary.

Another Code: Two Memories 24th June

Another Code: Two Memories utilises the unique Nintendo DS features, such as the touch-screen and microphone, to put players in the middle of one of the most gripping adventures they will ever experience! In Another Code: Two Memories players take control of Ashley, a young girl who gets a message to meet her long-lost father on a mysterious island. When she arrives her father is nowhere to be seen and Ashley begins to suspect something is wrong. As players explore the island in search of Ashley's father, strange things start to happen and they are thrust into the middle of a sinister plot.

Players control the game using the touch-screen to interact with their environment in a similar way to PC-based 'point and click' adventures, combining tricky puzzles with a gripping storyline to make this a must-have game.
