Japan can stay healthy with new DSiWare app

Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi, by way of his Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shimbun company, has a new DS project on the way in Japan. Hobonichi no Kenkou Techou ("Almost-Daily Health Notebook") is a DSiWare app designed to help users keep track of what's going on with their health, and it's every bit as likely to be localized for English-speaking users as Mother 3.

The app allows you to log your height, weight, allergies, recent illnesses and other health-related data daily, as well as prepare answers for seven questions you'd be likely to be asked upon admission to a hospital.

The free app, out tomorrow, is based on a physical notebook produced by Itoi's company in collaboration with physician Miwako Honda. It's really a lot cuter than the concept sounds, on account of all the cartoon animals.
