On this day (January 13) in Nintendo history…
NBA Courtside 2002 was released in 2002 for the Nintendo GameCube in North America. In this sports game, developed by Left Field Productions, authentic NBA action delivers that makes other basketball games look like they're stuck in the era of the two-handed jump shot. Up to four players can hit the hard wood simultaneously and talk trash to their hearts' content as they bust sweet crossovers, first-step jukes and monster dunks. Delivers a one-two punch of slick graphics and tight gameplay.
Mario Party Advance was released in 2005 for the Game Boy Advance in Japan. In this party game, developed by Hudson Soft, Mario and friends bring the party with a dizzying array of activities for single players plus their pals. Also introduces Professor E. Gadd's Gaddgets: wacky toys and tricks that bring the fun outside of the game. Bowser has crashed the party and scattered all the minigames around Shroom City. Collect them all by completing the single-player game boards. Once unlocked, minigames can be played as often as you like.
Professor Kageyama's Maths Training: The Hundred Cell Calculation Method (known in North America as Personal Trainer: Math) was released in 2007 for the Nintendo DS in Japan. In this puzzle game, developed by Jupiter, can you imagine learning mathematics just by playing a video game? Think about how useful this could be for your children and even yourself. You'll be surprised just how easy and how much fun it is to refresh your mathematics skills! You accomplish this using The Hundred Cell Calculation Method.
Genius Personal Waeiraky Jiten and Genius Personal Eiwaraku Jiten were released in 2009 for DSiWare in Japan. In this reference software, developed by Nintendo, you can look up words alphabetically using the keyboard or writing words in with the stylus to view the translations and definitions of around 89,000 words and phrases. You can bookmark words you may need to refer to later, as well as view a World Clock to see the date and time anywhere in the world.
