NIS America Releasing First DS Title In February 2008
NIS America has decided to enter the realm of casual Nintendo DS gaming. Their first DS title will be Puchi Puchi Virus which should hit shelves in February. Puchi Puchi Virus is a puzzle game. Some speculation may arise that NIS is dipping out of the SRPG/RPG genre, but this isn’t the case. According to their marketing coordinator, they will still be releasing RPG games, but decided to “spread their wings into more light and casual games” as well.
Unlike most puzzle games, Puchi Puchi Virus does not use the played out “object drop” system. This puzzle game uses more of an intuitive object linkage method which should really be refreshing for fans of puzzle games. It has been described as “simple, yet surprisingly in-depth”. We look forward to this title making it’s way to North America in the near future. The above image is from the Asian version of the game. We will post screen-shots here in the near future when they become available to us.
