Best new reason to buy a Nintendo DS

Selling really well? Check. Has a mass library of top-notch games? Check. Has a hit "MusiCreatiVisual" title in the US? Nope. Enter Electroplankton, Nintendo's wackiest new DS creation due out January 9 in the US. GearLog likes it so much, they deem it the best new reason to buy a Nintendo DS if you don't already own one.

From the article: "[Electroplankton] is not a game, precisely, though you do play with it. Essentially, it turns your DS into a music creation tool -- but that's not quite right either, since you create rich and colorful visualizations as you play, and that's a huge part of the experience."
