Nintendo to release English Training DS software

Nintendo announced Monday that the company will release an English training program for the Nintendo DS handheld. Punch Jump writes: "The software, due out on Jan. 26, is an extension of the popular ' Brain Training for Adults, based on a popular book' series that has seen success in Japan. The English Training program will allow owners to listen to a word and write it down on the handheld's touch screen to score listening ability."

Nintendo is also expected to release a travel dictionary program for various languages on the DS. The handheld has a plethora of great games, and the simulation side of things looks to be taking off as well. No word on if either of the two titles will be made available in the US.
