Puzzling new game on track for November release.
One of the great things about the Nintendo DS – and, of course, now the Wii – is that its unique control method provide an interface that not only makes it possible to play games that might not have existed otherwise, but also experience existing games in a whole new way. A fine example of this is the puzzle genre, which has absolutely blossomed on Nintendo’s wondrous and oh-so-popular console. The most recent addition to this list is a title called NEVES, which asks players to replicate the shape on screen by using the touch screen to manipulate seven smaller shapes. The concept itself is far older than the Nintendo DS, or even video games in general, but the new portable and intuitive interface should make it far more accessible than ever before. Unfortunately, we won’t know for sure until Novemeber, though Yukes and Atlus today announced that the game has gone gold and is on track for its scheduled release. For more information on NEVES, be sure to check out the official press release below:CHICAGO, IL - October 9, 2007 - YUKE’S Company of America, subsidiary of Japanese game publisher YUKE’S Company Limited , today announced NEVES for the Nintendo DS(TM) has gone gold and will be available for purchase in November.
