This shouldn’t be too surprising, but at least this does seem to show that there will be a few DSiWare titles available at launch. I’m sure North America will also receives news about DSiWare in the coming weeks.

Highly anticipated Nintendo WiiTM role-playing game to debut in Europe on April 24th
February 19th 2009 – Rising Star Games today confirms the release date of April 24th 2009 for the highly anticipated strategy RPG Little King’s Story.

In a move rarely seen for a new Japanese IP, the title will be released in PAL territories first, emphasising the growing importance of the European market.

Little King’s Story is a unique collaboration between the games industry’s most prodigious talents. Boasting a team of legendary designers – whose portfolios include a range of highly-acclaimed and much-loved titles such as Harvest Moon, No More Heroes, Final Fantasy XII and Super Mario PRG – Little King’s Story is a funny, charming and surprisingly deep PRG, designed to appeal to both casual and core gamers alike.

Contrary to Nintendo’s initial statements about the DSi, the handheld will indeed see exclusive games. Not just downloadable content, but titles which gamers will actually be able to pick up in stores.

“In addition to downloadable games, Nintendo DSi is able to play games made specifically for the system and sold at retail. The system can also play most Nintendo DS™ games, and will have access to a library of more than 850 titles originally made for that system.” – Nintendo of America press release
