Nintendo confirms massive success for the DS amidst the build-up for the 2005 European release…
Nintendo has today confirmed that the Nintendo DS system has now sold more than 2 million units, a million apiece in the US and Japan. With the console expected to sell more than 2.8 units by the end of the year, Nintendo is now setting its sights on Europe.
Although an exact date is yet to be given, the DS is set for release in March 2005, and Nintendo Europe is starting to crank up the anticipation. Jim Merrick, Senior Director European Marketing commented that, â??The launch of Nintendo DS in the US and Japan has been hugely successful, with it having become a must have console, and we are looking forward to another successful launch in Europe. Our mission is to create a new way of gaming, offering an innovative and enjoyable experience and with the new Nintendo DS we have accomplished this. The touch screen, for example, really empowers the player, letting them reach into the game for more direct, faster control.â?
One of the publishers set to launch a barrage of titles ready for the European release is EA, and Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Electronic Arts Europe, Gerhard Florin, was quick to point out that,â?EA recognises the growing consumer appetite for gaming outside the home, and the Nintendo DS will be a great choice for gamers who want a new handheld experience. Our games have been custom designed to make use of the new consoleâ??s unique features, such as the touch screen. This was a natural step for EA to take in collaboration with Nintendo and weâ??re delighted to be a major launch partner when the console comes to Europe next year.â?
Weâ??ll bring you an exact EU release date for the DS early in 2005â?¦
