We still can't believe that Nintendo has actually decided to grace us with a Starfy game -- in the same year that we're given a Rhythm Tengoku game. Why didn't we ever see the previous games? It's not like Nintendo of America didn't trust TOSE to create a good platform game. What's next, Kuru Kuru K...

We don't really know why we're sharing this because we thought perhaps putting in our pre-order first and securing a copy for ourselves would be a wise choice before sharing the scoop. But, we've got an obligation to you dear readers and we wouldn't do that to you. If you haven't picked up a copy of...

There's somewhat of a trend forming in DS sports games -- developers eschewing straight sports simulations in favor of bizarre experiences.
