On this day (March 17) in Nintendo history…
Tetris Blast was released in 1995 for the Game Boy in Japan. In this puzzle game, developed by Tose, it is the same as the Bombliss mode in Super Tetris 2 & Bombliss. In an added "Flight" mode, there are creatures that traverse the constantly changing 'terrain' of the play field and try to hinder the player from clearing the screen of blocks. Players can battle others by using a link cable.
Donkey Konga 3 was released in 2005 for the Nintendo GameCube in Japan. In this music game, developed by Namco, while playing his bongos, Donkey Kong notices that one of the trees has grown huge bananas in the presence of music. Cranky suggests that DK, Diddy, Dixie and Funky Kong work together to create many huge Rhythm Bananas. Hit the bongos or clap as the icons pass over the marker on screen to score points. The more accurate you are, the more points you get.
Pokémon Conquest was released in 2011 for the Nintendo DS in Japan. In this tactical role-playing game, developed by Koei Tecmo Games, a unique world called Ransei is filled with adventure! Players take on the role of a young Warlord who is linked with a Pokémon. Together, they must set out to recruit Warrior allies to strengthen their growing kingdom. Along their journey, players will encounter a variety of Pokémon, as well as Warriors and Warlords inspired by the Japanese feudal era. The game contains almost 200 Pokémon, including many from the recent Pokémon Black and Pokémon White games.
Kaite Oboeru: Eitango Chou and Kaite Oboeru: Shashin Tango were released in 2010 for DSiWare in Japan. In these utilities/education software, developed by Intelligent Systems, utilise flashcards for writing information that needs to be learned or memorised. One is for written vocabulary or phrases, and one is for annotated images taken with the Nintendo DSi Camera. As well as providing a simple place to keep important notes that need to be learned, the software can also quiz you on the information you provide.
