Milton Keynes, 13th October 2009 – 505 Games have today announced that Nintendo™ has confirmed Hair Salon as the first Nintendo DSi™ only game to be released in Europe. The interactive title makes use of the console’s built in camera, meaning the November 13th release date will mark the first time a boxed Nintendo DSi™ exclusive title will appear in stores.

Hair Salon, developed by Sonic Powered, makes full use of the Nintendo DSi™ camera function. It is the perfect game for girls of all ages who are interested in the world of hair and make-up. By utilising the built in camera, players can take photos of themselves or friends and can create brand new looks and styles. Players can even become the in game character. Hair Salon is also the first game to use Automatic Face Recognition- a technical innovation that will automatically take a user’s picture once their face is in shot, ensuring a picture perfect photo every time.

“505 Games have a long, successful history with the Nintendo DS™ platform so it is only natural that we would respond and adapt innovatively to the new format.” commented Victoria Martin, Global Brand Manager for 505 Games. “Hair Salon offers a fully interactive hairstyling experience for young girls and we are excited to see how the consumer will react to the content we’ve produced for the Nintendo DSi™”

Hair Salon will be published exclusively on Nintendo DSi™ by 505 Games and releases on the 13th November.

Nordcurrent set to release 101-in-1 Party Megamix Wii in October

Monday, October 12th 2009: Nordcurrent, the European publisher of hit DS title 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix, have announced the news that Wii party game fans have been waiting for; 101-in-1 Party Megamix Wii is to be released in the UK on the 30th October 2009, priced at £29.99.

101-in-1 Party Megamix Wii is an entirely new game from the makers of the hit DS title. This isn’t simply a port of the original hit on the DS, it’s an entirely new collection of brand new games that play perfectly to the Wii’s strength – multi-player fun.

– Remake of Castlevania: The Adventure (Game Boy)
– New graphics
– More of a gothic feel
– Gameplay has been modified slightly
– New enemies, traps, stage improvements
– Classic Castlevania music will see new arrangements
– Will cost 1,000 points


“It’s out in Feb, but has never been officially confirmed as anything else. A few retail sites put a loose November date on it, but we never officially gave it a date until recently,” a rep told us. Although the game was widely expected out this winter.” – Konami statement

You see, this is the reason why I’m very hesitant to post retailer listings on the site. It is true that Konami never announced an official release date previously, but at least we know now that it should be coming out in February in Europe. We’ll have to wait and see what happens with the North American date, though.



We’ve been waiting to find out how Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth would end up. Fortunately, Famitsu has finally provided the first look of the game in its latest issue. The magazine even states that the upcoming WiiWare title will be releasing in Japan in two weeks. It isn’t the best quality because the image taken isn’t a direct scan, but it’s better than nothing!
