A... Pokemon Typing game? I knew about the Mario vs. Dk thing already from NP I think.

A new Mario vs. Donkey Kong game has been annonced for a while. Lol, Kirby 128, anyone?

And a...........Pokemon typing game? :/

It's not really a typing game, it's an educational game that helps kids translate Japanese kanji into standard letters.



Bloodysaber said:

Yeah, I don't see a typing game working on a DS at all. The screen is far too small and there's no references for your fingers.

I'm leaning towards XD375's explaination.



Zach said:

Thanks for the comments. We've edited the article to reflect that the Pokémon game is based in typing but is not necessarily in the "typing game" genre, and that the Mario vs. Donkey Kong game is not the news, just the new screenshots.

@SmaMan: As bad as the game is, I really wish I had Mario to teach me typing, and not this Kewala thing we had at my school.



Megumi said:

Pokemon teaches
Anyways...yeah, wanna know more about this Kirby game. xD

Why a new Kirby DS game? I mean, that's cool and all but we already have 3 kirby games for the system! Why not just make it for the 3DS, especially when it's so close to release?



grumblebuzzz said:

Kirby game? Wha? That's kind of odd considering how close Epic Yarn is to making it's way into the world and also kind of weird due to how different the Wii game is to the previous installments. This DS game looks very classic Kirby to me...



Morpheel said:

one would have thought that having 4 different kirbies at the same time was crazy enough. Now we have 10.



NGpenguin said:

the pokemon typing game is supposed to have a REAL keyboard for the ds. yay anhother kirby game! .....i already knew about Mini-Land Mayhem thought



DiggerandIndy said:

I hope that the next Kirby game doesn't have that crappy music that has plagued the recent portables. If it does, I'm complaining!



SmaMan said:

I used to be a Kirby freak back in the day. Today, not so much. I'd love to get re-hooked.

The new kirby game looks good, so does mario vs. donkey kong: miniland mayhem, 9 hours, 9 persons, 9 doors and radiant historia.

@11: Three?

1. Kirby Super Star Ultra
2. Kirby Squeak Squad
3. ???

Yeah there are only two. And even if there were three, why should that stop them from making another?




Mario v DK Mini-Land Mayhm = insta-buy. Kirby title eh. I have Power Paintbrush and Superstar needs to be of similar quality

@27 The third one is actually Kirby Canvas Curse. But you can never have too much Kirby
