April 13, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Since its release, the Nintendo DSi has enjoyed a big boost in renown over the first DS. Nintendo augmented the original model in pretty much every way imaginable; slimming it down and throwing in excellent features like the dual cameras. However it has taken some time for the special features of the DSi to be completely realised, but this is being speeded up thanks to the increasing number of Nintendo DSiWare titles and resources being released.

Nintendo DSiWare is the name given to an increasing offering of applications released totally for the DSi, most of which utilise the DSi's features and therefore are not compatible with the previous DS. These can be accessed quickly and easily via the DSi store, and gamers spend their Nintendo points in order to download these applications.

The distributors have offered up the creation of DSiWare features to several 3rd party publishers, and so gamers can look forward to a wide variety of goodies. A vast back catalogue of retro and well-loved games are being added on a weekly basis, and so DSi owners have access to a stack of great titles. Some examples include Phantasy Star, Brain challenge and the Art Style franchise of games.

However, even more exciting are the host of Nintendo DSiWare applications; a range of downloadables that are produced particular to the DSi's augmented technology and features. These include art and flipbook studios for more in-depth customization, augmented browser and camera features and even interactive compendiums with camera synching.

As said, the list of Nintendo DSiWare features is growing weekly, and they're helping to recognise the actual potential of the handheld. Any DSi gamer should definitely check into the huge range of applications and titles available- they're fun, intuitive and are very easy to download.
