Platforming goodness is on its way to DSiWare

Nintendo's recent confirmation of upcoming releases for the remainder of 2009 has thrown up some pleasant surprises, with Gameloft's Castle of Magic being one of the more interesting DSiWare announcements.

Based on the well-received iPhone version (which in turn evolved from a similarly agreeable mobile phone edition), this 2.5D platformer owes a massive debt to classic 16-bit titles of days gone by.

Check out the official trailer for footage of this game in action:
