Nintendo applauds handhelds and looks to 2005
With the new year dawning, Nintendo have praised the performance of their handheld platforms in 2004, whilst promising big for 2005. The DS platform sold an impressive 1.3 million units in North America alone since its late-October debut, and the firm states that 120 new games for the format are en route in 2005. The GBA meanwhile sold an incredible 8 million units in the region, and will be enjoying some 125 titles throughout the year - all of which will also work on the DS, happily.
WarioWare Touched!, Pokemon Dash, Yoshi Touch & Go, Need for Speed Underground 2 and Retro Atari Classics should all do good business for Ninty on the DS early in 2005, and whilst only sixty new games are promised for the GameCube console, a roster of high quality titles should make for a better year for the ailing format. Tellingly, no hardware sales figures were offered on this front. GC owners should not despair however, for look what is to be yours within the next twelve months: Geist, Donkey Konga Jungle Beat, Resident Evil 4 and Killer 7 - among many new releases. I thank you.
