    Upon announcing Magic Taizen for the DS, a game that allows players to take the role of magician and perform tricks illusions, we knew Nintendo meant business. Well, Gamebrink recently imported a Japanese copy of the game and took it through their strict, and very deadly, review gauntlet. What do they think of the game? It's not too shabby ...

    The game has three basic modes: Magic Alone, Magic Attraction and Mystery Training. Mystery Training is comprised of several different mini-games. The other two modes, which progressively unlock different tricks as you play through them, makes for the meat of the title. You'll progress by performing tricks and earning points, which you can use to open new tricks, but you have a limit on how many points you may earn in any given day.

    Sadly, they say the game is not all that import friendly as there is tons of Japanese text that informs you of how to perform these tricks and progress. Without the ability to at least read Japanese, we're all stuck waiting to hear an announcement for this game to release to territories outside of Japan.

    Anyone else wish to follow the ways of the magician?
