DS Download Play:
As with all DS Download multiplayer games, the DS Download Play in Mario Kart DS requires that only one player has a copy of the game.

  • 2-8 player simultaneous wireless game play
  • Choice of multiplayer racing, Balloon Battle or Shine Thief modes
  • Players can choose from different engine classes
  • No limits on character choice
  • No limits on track choice

Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection:
Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection is a free online game-play service provided by Nintendo to Nintendo DS owners. It offers seamless access to online game play and an environment that is welcoming to gamers of all skill levels. Features include:

  • 2-4 Players racing simultaneously
  • Choice of playing with:

o Friends Only (players registered as Friends)
o Rivals (players with similar skills)
o Recent Opponents
o Regional Racers (players in their country)
o World Racers (players anywhere in the world)

  • No limit on course choice, but each player votes for a course and the course with the most votes wins (in case of a tie, the course is chosen randomly)
  • No limit on character choice
  • Players can create and use personalized player icons

Connecting to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection will be quick, easy and seamless. Players can go to an official Nintendo hotspot and immediately go online and start playing. To use their home Wi-Fi routers, players first must configure the DS to connect to their routers by entering the router’s network ID and optional security key or install the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector on their PC and configure the DS to enable it to share the PC’s broadband connection. After that, players can go online anytime without further configuration. Friends are registered to the friends roster either by exchanging and entering Friend Registration Keys or by playing local Multi-Card Multiplayer mode together.

US Release Date: 20051125

JP Release Date:
Developer: Nintendo UK
Publisher: Nintendo of America Inc
ESRB: Everyone
Genre: Action
Details:

The DS stylus has been magically infused with the power to paint. Players draw paths and stun enemies to guide KirbyTM through an adventure spanning seven massive worlds.

  • Kirby has been turned into a ball, so rainbow paths are the only way he can find power-ups and reach the gates of each world. Draw loops to make him speed up, make ramps to jump danger and draw walls to block laser beams and cannon blasts.
  • Touch enemies to stun them, then tap Kirby to dash into them and copy their abilities. Turn into Wheel Kirby, Burning Kirby, Stone Kirby and many more.
  • Try tough challenges in all seven worlds, take on bosses in unique battles or play mini-games.

Game Storyline: An evil witch turns Dream Land into a "picture" world, and when Kirby confronts her, she uses her magic to turn him into a ball. Luckily, he finds a magic paintbrush she left behind and uses it to turn the DS stylus into a magic item capable of drawing rainbow paths. Kirby then sets out to regain his shape and save Dream Land.

Characters: Kirby, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Kracko, Paint Roller, Waddle Dee, Waddle Doo and more familiar enemies.

How to progress through the game: Use the stylus to draw paths to guide Kirby through each level or to tap enemies to stun them. Break blocks and draw walls to avoid danger as Kirby heads for the gate of each stage. After defeating all three stages in each of the seven worlds, players must win a boss battle against King Dedede, Kracko or Paint Roller to open up the next world.

Special powers/weapons/moves/features: By dashing into enemies (or running into them while they’re stunned), Kirby will copy their abilities. Every ability has a unique power – Burning Kirby can blaze a horizontal trail at high speed, Stone Kirby can plunge invincibly through the water and Wheel Kirby can cruise at high speeds to launch to distant areas.

Details:

Call of Duty 2 lets players experience four individual soldier stories as they overcome insurmountable odds in multiple campaigns. Players have the freedom to follow each of the four storylines through for the ultimate character-driven experience, or they can engage in the historic battles chronologically for quick hitting action.

Infinity Ward, creator of the blockbuster, original Call of Duty, has also expanded the scope of combat to deliver a truly realistic battlefield experience. Squads now have the freedom to take on a variety of mission objectives, on expansive battlefields that allow for multiple paths and the ability to utilize actual combat tactics like outflanking and fire and maneuver capabilities.

Call of Duty 2’s new engine and A.I. technology set the stage for authentic squad combat and astonishing action. Concealment can be key as battlefield smoke or even deployed smoke grenades cloud visibility. Weather effects such as the dusty sandstorms of North Africa and whiteout blizzard conditions of Russia, for example, will keep soldiers glued to their bunkers. The team has also employed a state-of-the-art Battle Chatter System that brings the action to life as squad-mates bark out context-sensitive updates in real-time to players through an advanced A.I. system.

"Our team at Infinity Ward is committed to thrusting gamers into the heat of battle like no other, taking players on a thrill-ride of adrenaline that leaves everyone gasping for air," states Grant Collier, president, Infinity Ward. "In Call of Duty 2, we are creating the most intense and realistic action game imaginable with a stunning visual atmosphere and an advanced technology that delivers an unprecedented level of authenticity."
