Hey, I found this on jostiq.com! It's the first DSi exclusive game, And it's called Monster Finder...
This is what Joystiq says:

Just yesterday we heard that DSi-only retail games would be on the way soon. Today, Japanese publisher Alpha Unit announced the first one, Monster Finder -- though, since it was announced for Japan, we doubt it's one of the games being referred to yesterday!

Basically the only details available about Monster Finder right now are that it includes over 100 different varieties of monster and that those monsters are found with the DSi camera (hence the DSi exclusivity); and probably represented in-game by the scanner-gun thing seen in the teaser artwork. It's part Monster Rancher, part augmented reality. Monster Finder will be released sometime this winter in Japan.

So what do you think of it? :D

I'm not even a huge fan of Pokemon, so still no definitive reason for me to upgrade to DSI just yet.

Yeah, but it doesn't sound bad... I mean it could've been much worse... with an Ubisoft cooking game or something :P

EDIT: Oops, I forgot to give the link, so here it is! http://www.joystiq.com/2009/09/01/first-dsi-exclusive-game-fo...

That sounds like a total rip off of Ghostwire which uses the DSi Camera to find ghosts

Exactly what I though when I saw the comments on Joystiq... But still could be fun... I think I get Ghostwire, and not this game.. :P

Yeah, this is EXACTLY what ghostwire is. Just with monsters. And instead of $5 for a DSiWare game this will be a $30 Retail game. eww.

I can't believe Nintendo didn't make sure they had one for its launch, I hope some decent games get announced for it soon, maybe FF5 & 6 or even Phantasy Star 5(wishful thinking), hope its not going to be mostly party games.

Well it isn't even said yet wether Ghostwire will be DSiWare or Retail... I thinks it's rather a DSi only game... because everywhere on their website is written it comes for the DSi but they never even mention DSiWare... well they have a twitter account now so I asked them there. I hope they'll answer

So? Who trusts Nintendo Life? :P No but seriously I think the developer should know better than a news site ;)
And redacteurs can make mistakes, too.

How so? The monsters? A lot of games have monsters you can capture, but they aren't Pokemon clones. Judging from the camera use, the gameplay will be different too, I think.
I don't think people should be worrying about the concept, but the content. I'm pretty sure this game would have more features and things than a $5 Ghost Wire anyway.I've heard a rumor from a forum member that DSi cartridges wouuld be larger than normal ones as well? If that is true, this game can (potentially...) have more than 128 MB worth of content, bigger than a huge DSiWare game (the biggest so far is under 20 MB and Nintendo raised the limit, but I doubt there will be anything larger than 100 MB, heck 50 MB).
