A new DS game revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu, Slide Adventure: Mag Kid, features an unusual control method: sliding. The game comes bundled with a slide controller that attaches to the bottom of the DS like a stand. Sitting the system on a table (or desk, or frozen pond) you slide it around to control the magnetic main character. Push the DS toward an enemy to paralyze the foe and attach it to Mag Kid. When you're ready to drop the baddies, just give the DS a shake. Sounds just gimmicky enough to work, but we're eager to see it in action. Slide Adventure: Mag Kid is set for release in Japan on August 2.
